I can’t begin to tell you how many people I’ve directed towards this app! Living in japan I can tell you I’ve used this so many times and have found everything amazing about it. If anything, may I make two recommendations. 1) give us the option to upload flash card decks into quizlet ( the flash card learning option built in is mediocre to say the least ) 2) ability to take a picture of something, highlight the text and get a translation ( or rather just the furigana , basically to be able to upload pictures into the page where we can currently paste large bodies of text ) And that’s it-

I really like the app, but I would prefer that it support iCloud sync so that flash cards and vocabulary lists can sync across all devices. I put most of them on my iPhone, and would like to be able to access them on my iPad.

It's a very useful app, but I'd like to be able to hear all the basic words in japanese like hello (konnichiha) or stop(v)
