This is hands down the best app for Japanese learning. You get to know the culture and why certain structures and phrases are said. It's regularly updated which is great. However, I have a couple of complaints. When in kana-kanji practicing mode I'd like the writing area to be a grid like in Japanese exercise books. In smaller devices you can't even really see the characters while in that mode so you have to remember them before you start writing/drawing them, unless you choose the animation every time which takes some time and it's very inconvenient. It would be great to have a little area where the character is represented, or a little window to pull down while you're drawing to show the stroke length whitout erasing your work. I also can't find access to the unlimited version anywhere on the site.
I really like this app but no matter what I put in for the writing vocabulary quiz when it's set to english/kana, it says wrong number of strokes. I know the words are being spelled correctly and the characters are written correctly because they work fine in the kana writing quiz. Really frustrating as I can't use the written quiz for vocabulary. Is the quiz expecting kanji even when it's set to kana mode?
Great app that I did upgrade. Only thing I need is a better testing during the lessons. Keep them optional but make them less like they are in a newspaper or magazine and more like an app. The test at the end could use some sprucing up as well so you can't go back to look at other questions as you answer, hate to say it but I do that a lot and am not getting as much out of this as I could.
I'm just starting, but it seems to have everything you would expect, but then, it totally blows you away when you dig in and realize it has far more than you ever expected! I believe that anyone using this programme can learn Japanese if they simply apply themselves. It is excellent!
I like how the lessons are structured (ex. vocabulary, kanji, culture, listening, etc.). It doesn't just give out phrases to memorize but explains the grammar and sentence construction thoroughly. The quizzes are highly customizable, to match whatever your current review style is. Hands down, a great app for learning Japanese.
C'est une appli très complète, autant en version gratuite que payante. (Et le prix et très petit) Beaucoup de fonctionnalités. Je n'utilise pas toute les fonctionnalités de l'appli mais ce que j'utilise est très satisfaisant et vaut largement le prix de l'application :)
