In other words...

TangoRisto analyzes short Japanese texts from the web to facilitate your reading flow. This app encourages you to read and explore the vocabulary in short texts from the Web. You can review the vocabulary for each text, filter it by your reading level and bookmark your favorite articles.

I find more often than not real learning breakthroughs happen when observing language in context. Hopefully this app will help you to take the knowledge you are acquiring in class or through standard learning materials, and apply it to read real texts.

What’s New

Version 3.0.2

- Restored word audio button on word detail view.
- Brought back the option to export a single vocabulary entry on the the word long press menu.
- Brought back the "restore in-app purchases" button on settings. If you purchased ad-removal and are still seeing the Patreon banner on the document feed, please try using this button to have the banner removed. Sorry, it is not my intention to overload you with banners.
- Temporarily removed TechCrunch feed which was causing the app to crash.
