Great for self-learning Japanese. I've used this app for about a year. It is easy to use, has various modules for different ways of learning, is written clearly with great examples, has various quizzes, flashcards, etc to reinforce learning, is reasonably priced...the list goes on. I highly recommend it along with paying to small 1x fee to get the most out of it.

Good lessons overall. I like the stories to put it all together. The kanji writing leaves a lot to be desired though. Very, very often it will count several of my strokes two times, so if for example I draw four strokes it will count six or eight and mark the whole thing incorrect. The accuracy grading is pretty terrible too. It'll grade me 100 when I'm way off, and less than 90 when I'm dead on. The whole kanji writing system needs to be revamped. I'll be using other apps for that.

Great app. It has a lot of content, but there has been a reoccurring problem for about 2 years . I bought the Samurai Unlimited and can't finish learning all JLPT N3 vocabulary. It's stuck on the last 20 words. When I try to learn them it takes me to the kanji section. I've emailed about the issue many times but nothing has been resolved and no response. Please fix this issue.
