This app might be one of the best beginner JP apps I've ever had the pleasure of using! It's very easy to use, has lessons beyond vocabulary memorization (grammar & sentence examples included, plus test rankings for each unit!). Any lesson beyond #5 requires you to purchase a monthly subscription. I'm interested in purchasing a lifetime membership of the app, but $130 is a bit much.

At the beginning i was a bit disappointed because of the lack of italian among the languages supported, but i decided to raise the rating because this app deserves 5 stars. Clean design, no ads, good prices for an upgrade that actually is not necessary for those people (like me) who are at the very beginning in the japanese world. Yet I'm very happy I've found this app, and i'll be happy to support it by purchasing the full version for the lessons i'll need. Thanks for the great job!

We released the italian version. From now you can use italian for study. Abbiamo aggiornato la app con l'inserimento della lingua italiana. Se vuoi da oggi puoi studiare dall'italiano al giapponese.
