Good app, and one I paid for by the way, but it hasn't been updated in a while. On Android 10 and 11, the audio playback doesn't work anymore. After some experimentation, I discovered that the breakage is due to the "unlocker app" that gets downloaded when you subscribe to the paid version. If you delete the unlocker, audio works again. So I guess the bottom like is that you should continue to use the free version.

This app is great for expanding from intermediate japanese! New kanji that are introduced have linked translations, there is an option to show furigana for those rusty on kanji and am option to hide it for those that don't need the crutch. There is audio playback of the articles which is super useful for those that can't be looking at the screen! I opted for the monthly subscription to avoid the ads since the fee was super cheap and it's less discouraging to keep using the app without ads.

Great for practicing Japanese reading, and listening too since you can play a recording of the article at speeds from slow to natural. Sometimes the real news clip is included for an extra challenge! Optional furigana are very nice. The definitions of difficult words at the bottom-in Japanese- are very helpful, although the optional weblio Japanese-to-English dictionary could be better integrated.
