This is an application designed to help you communicate with local Japanese "decently" and "bi-directionally" when you are traveling in Japan.
Normal phrase book apps are "uni-direction": you can only express what you want to say, but its hard to understand the response from the locals. Moreover, due to the cultural differences, some of the phrases are not "appropriate" to say in regard to the situation. This app lists out the most often used dialogs for a place as well as the likely responses to help on "bi-directional" communication!
. Dialog categories:
1. Smart Manner
4. Walking on Street
7. Japanese Hotel
9. Fashion Shop
11. Department Store Delicatessen
12. Ramen Shop
13. Coffee Shop
14. Premium Sushi Shop
. Freehand sketch pad to jog down/type/paste Japanese terms, map direction, illustrations etc for communication.
. Real voiceover of dialogs by native Japanese speaker.
. Cultural difference reminder notes to help you enjoy your stay in Japan better.
. Supported both English, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese and Romaji translation.
. App run locally, no internet connection required.
