The Flashcards have honestly been a lifesaver, I put the Furigani on “Only until Memorized” so that after I’ve memorized them I can memorize the Kanji too. I’m honestly sooo so grateful that this app is free.

This app is perfect in many ways! I think the only thing that could be improved is allowing users to add their own user-generated-local content that can be searched. For instance, being in Japan, I hear “建ち組み” to put together, but I don’t see that phrase in the app. Language changes a lot, so including user-gen phrases can help many users.

I’ve been using it to help translate Japanese music and learn vocabulary. The way it breaks everything down into its individual parts is really helping me learn characters and phrases.

I’m a native Russian speaker, so, for me there are two irreplaceable dictionaries I use daily, one of which is RU to JA, and the other one is this amazing and FREE app. I loved it a bunch the moment I’d installed it. The design is clear, features like lists and searching by keys are pretty handy, and the app’s vocabulary includes modern, archaic, and specialized words. Thank you so much for packing the app with all these useful sentences which make context clearer for users.

I’ve had this app for over a year now and it still amazes me. I keep forgetting about the study tool which is bad on my part because the study tool is great. It gives you a progress bar of how much you know and even suggests you 50 starting cards. I love how the resources gives you lists of words from the JLTP vocab list and shows you how much you know. It’s great for keeping progress. I also like how when you can’t remember a word, it doesn’t kill you for it like so many apps and websites. No matter what you’re still learning, this isn’t a video game, you don’t lose. I also like how it gives you a date for the next JLPT test. You can even make your own list and it keeps track of that as well. It also gives you the stroke order for each kanji and if you go to the search tab and wait a bit, a ton of random words in Japanese show up. This is probably the most underrated app for learning Japanese and I recommend it to my friends.

First off the user interface is really pretty and smooth. I’ve only used it for a couple days but I’m learning a lot. If your learning kanji use this app. It’s really good.

It’s amazing if you want to learn kanji because it has the radicals and just standard kanji that you can learn and study and it has all the kanji you would learn in the school grades
