One of the best apps out there for learning vocab and kana. The reason it is because it includes spaced repetition, multiple direct input quiz, such as speech, kana, and Kanji. It also has all vocab and sentences with native pronunciations. The only thing lacking atm is grammer based quizzes. The other thing I would like it to include in the future is to have a option to read aloud a sentence with the word in it. Buy it if you want learn vocabulary quickly, way better than Anki.

So many features and ways to learn even in the free version. It easily has the best explanations for how the grammar works and why of any app I've used so far. Where most just show you where the words go and expect you to memorize it, this actually breaks down how each particle works. The cultural background is also immensely useful. Then you throw in the vocab lists, conjugation, aural comprehension, and more, and you've got a veritable smorgasbord of Japanese learning.

Crazy comprehensive app! Explanations for everything and though there's more than enough free content, I do Google Surveys and that paid for the downloadable content. I tend to jump all over at times, which in many ways this app allows, you get a better foundation if you start with lessons and branch off. There's also the ability to do lessons on a computer, but I prefer the app myself.
