Great App! Just one minor bug The bug appears in jlpt n3, the last group of words 1601-1604 can't be launched: it crashes the app. Only bug i noticed in several months of use! The app is a nice way to review the vocabulary. EDIT: the bug has been corrected by their latest update. The app is greater than ever now! I'm at N2 level and enjoying it.
Kanji info would be helpful. Would rate 5 stars if it had info on kanji meaning. Also vocabulary lists based on Jōyō kanji grades would be a great option to learn new kanji with their most common pronunciations and in the same time learn new vocabulary. Finally, when quizzing please add a "I do not know" selection to avoid guessing words.
Excellent, but with font issue on Galaxy Tab A I use Kotoba regularly and find it excellent, particularly all the sample sentences. When I use it on my Galaxy Tab A device, the kanji font is bold and hard to read. It is FAR easier to use it on my HTC One phone. I want to learn these kanji. Help me.
Usability needs more work If you type romaji - it gives nonsense, randomly sorted (try komorebi). If you paste several words - the list of findings is also randomly sorted.
This isn't the best for effective vocab memorization. Too many English definitions for some words. The whole list is in alphabetical order which makes it BORING to learn VERY quickly. Very obscure kanji that's not in the exam level I'm working on (N1) or even commonly used. I am very disappointed. Would be better if vocab was 100% random or grouped by topic and real kanji for vocab or even just common kana were used.
Honestly I love everything about this app as I'm using it to study vocab for JPLT. But some of kanjis don't have the right examples provided in the app. So I don't know what and how the word is used. It is quite frustrating. I really do hope it gets fixed somehow. Another great feature to add would be flashcards so then you can't see the answers already listed unless you flip it. I will still use this app to study.
New icon and name for the app. Also includes some bugfixes.
