2 Apps in This Bundle
This app helped me learn Hiragana in about just 2 days. It uses funny pictures to help remember and in my opinion it's a great way of learning. ありがとうございます。（≧∇≦）
Cost for features is Questionable
There is no doubt that this app has the content needed to serve its most basic purpose, which is to learn the Kanas in Japanese. However, for a paid app, you'd think it would have more navigation features, rather than make you start at "A" every time you begin the lesson. Something as simple as being able to start where needed, or a filter for the flash cards to practice piece by piece would have been nice given the premium cost of the app itself. It's certainly not broken, but it lacks the basic navigation functions one would expect for having paid money; in a world of free apps.
Should they change this, I'd be thoroughly impressed. At this point, not so much. 3/5
Buy this app it's worth it
I had this app for an half hour and now I know all the hirigana alphabet 😱
