Great for learning vocabulary

This app focuses on kana and vocab, doesn’t really have grammar lessons though. I love to use it for learning vocabulary. They only have one vocab pack for free which is greetings, but I am tempted to buy the other packs because they’re pretty cheap! I like the learning style because it makes you type out the whole word in Japanese rather than just picking multiple choice like other apps. Definitely recommend this.

blank cards and crashing

Before their recent update everything was fine, but now whenever I practice I get blank cards and when i try to send the answer it automatically crashes. overall this app usually works well! a really great way to learn katakana and hiragana. it’s a better way than using flash cards because they use a method where you type the answers and if you get it wrong they make retype the correct answer. probably the best app if you’re a beginner or are trying to refresh since a lot of Japanese learning apps will let you study only a couple of the characters and force you to pay for the rest of them. i definitely recommend this, i just wanted to drop a review so maybe the developers could fix the problem since they might not know. this really helps for my japanese tests since i’m a beginner :)

edit: since they allowed the srs method on the hiragana and katakana, whenever i study from that method it crashes.

Developer Response ,

Hello Arizzacami, thank you for letting us know of your issues.
Sadly the update have brought some issues, we hope we can help you solve them.

The blank cards may be due to the database update. You will need to download the bundles that you previously downloaded to update your local database.
If you only downloaded the free bundle, just go to the Vocabulary tab and click on it to download again.
If you bought some bundles before, go to Settings tab and click on "Restore purchases".
Once your local database is refreshed, everything should work again!

Please let us know if you managed to fix it. You can send us an email at if you need anymore help.

PS: In last resort, uninstalling and reinstalling the application should clean everything, but you would lose your savings.

Great App!

I like to use this app when I’m waiting for something. It keeps my mind active. I like that if you use it in the correct mode it will track what you’re struggling with so you can improve! I create mock exams and move through them as quickly as I can and I haven’t seen that option with other apps! Try it out!
