What's New in Version 3.2.3
Superior Japanese Language study tool.
Whether you are a beginner or advanced student of Japanese, you will find this a superlative resource. After using it for several months, I remain impressed by its depth, usefulness and intuitive design. One of my favorite aspects is the Lexical Categories, which allows you to study anything from certain types of adjectives, to particles, to proverbs, complete with numerous examples. And if there is any particular aspect of the language you wish to study more, you can create specialized lists composed of examples. This is a great way to direct your study according to your interests/needs. Highly recommended, a steal at any price.
This review is long overdue for an app I use -literally - on a daily basis. Incredibly powerful, and I keep stumbling over new utility, even after more than a years' use. (...which brings me to my one gripe: user documentation is sorely missed for some of the more obscure functionality. I'm still not entirely sure if I'm using the matcher correctly. =w=;). That aside, this is still the best way a Japanese student could spend ten bucks. Do it now, thank me later.

I never write reviews, but had to for this app. We'll worth many times the price! My fiancé has been studying Japanese for years and now I'm learning so I can say this is great for many levels of study. Plus it works offline without internet! A great app!
