Interesting app, but contains some wrong information
This app has some potential, but there are several mistakes that I noticed right from the start, so I have since stopped using it.
In the hiragana section, it lists を as o rather than wo (even though it is usually pronounced as o, the character is typically mapped to wo to avoid confusion with お), and more importantly じ is shown as zi rather than ji...
お = o
を = wo
じ = ji
There is no character for zi
Also the hiragana section focuses heavily on digraphs, with the options consisting of variants of the same character with the やゆよ variants (such as kyu with the options: きゃ、きゅ、きょ). So rather than drilling all of the characters, you basically only end up drilling those 3 (ya, yu, & yo) over and over.
At first I liked the app, but the truth is that there are simply better resources out there for both drilling and studying Japanese.
I don’t know but suddenly this app just stoped works. I can just open it and after 1 second it will be closed by it self...Why? And also a few other apps from you also don’t work at all...
No real mistakes. Lots of functionality.
I just wish there was an option to remove the ads at the bottom of the screen.
