Favorite Japanese learning app Love this app, it literally puts everything that I need together, it's an amazing guide. It's not easy to use if you're a complete beginner but if you know what you're looking for, there's no way Obenkyo doesn't have it.
Good for what it is The app is pretty conprehensive. It contains learning tools for both hiragana and katakana as well as tools to test yourself on said alphabets. However, this is not a replacement for a teacher. For kanji, the app places the information about a particular character, a pretty impressive list of info I might add, and expects you to memorize it. This is not particularly useful for people who have trouble finding a way to study (i.e. me). Granted, I do not expect more than that from a free app.
Love it This is so far the best kana learning app I have used. It is not recommended to absolute beginners, as unlike some apps, this one does not focus on zero-knowledge training (there are many apps that do this however). If you have learned the bare basics of reading kana/kanji, I have not found a better app for review and further learning. Only given 4 stars because of the lack of tools for absolute beginners, otherwise, HIGHLY recommended.
Great app Very convenient but some of the kanji are a bit buggy with the new font in the latest release in "test" mode. Eg: 細, 春, 写. Perhaps this is an Android problem however as i can see the same stroke issues when typing the kanji here in this box. Changing to 5 stars ;-). Only other comment I would make is setting up your tests in the menu is a bit unintuitive. Perhaps make a video on Youtube with a tour will help new users
Nice app but... ...the test in number has a little problem (unless I was wrong). I typed my answer and the correct answer was wrong. For example, さんぜんはっぴゃくにじゅう was written above and I typed 3820. The correct answer said さんぜんはっぴゃくにじゅう but it said 83820. Please fix this so that I should rate this 5.
I don't normally review Holy crap this is a good app. It's best to have some basic knowledge of how to pronounce Japanese, but that's way easier than English anyway overall. I literally don't believe how this app is free. I don't remember seeing any ads. This is like a dictionary+flashcard tests+some grammar and general info. It even has stroke order animations for all of the kanji, and breaks up what individual kanji makes what word if applicable. Good rabbit trail fun.
