10 Star App!
This is truly an amazing application that I can hardly believe is free. This really deserves to be a paid app. It will walk you through the grammar from JLPT N5 (basic) all the way up to N1 (advanced). The explanations are detailed and yet simple so anyone can follow along. The only prerequisite is that you can read English; this app will even teach you the kana (how to read the Japanese alphabet) if you're completely unfamiliar with the Japanese language. The quizzes after the explanations are both challenging and fun reminding me very much of Duolingo. Your knowledge will be put to the test while you'll be put at great risk of becoming an obsessive Japanese grammar addict like me. Finally, the app allows you to ask questions about the contents which... I'm just speechless about. The time, energy, and kindness put into this app is truly mind-blowing; it'll be obvious to anyone who's studying Japanese or has an interest in Japanese that this app was built only with the Japanese learner's best interest in mind. Did I mention the app is gorgeous and clean as well (swiping though the explanation cards is so satisfying) and it has finally been fixed to work with iOS 10 again! What are you waiting for? Ready to master Japanese?! 🙌🏼 The app's free, there's no sign in required, so you've really got nothing to lose! 🤗
I’m so happy to have this app
I’ve been studying Japanese off and on for years and there are certain grammar concepts that just wouldn’t stick. I have books and all kinds of resources but the way you are presenting everything in this app is actually more fun and helpful and explained in a way that I can understand. I enjoy the quizzes too, they help so much! I’m learning a lot from your app! I’m thankful to use it for free, you’re too kind. But if you started charging for it, I would pay. It’s worth it!! ありがとうございます！
Not at my level, but looks polished
As far as app designs go, I really like the minimalist aesthetic that is going on here. I am still at N5 and I really think that they should add that because their target audience is probably people that haven’t found the place they are learning a language yet, but that’s just me. When I get to a level that I can actually use this app, I will adjust my review, but I think that these guys really need reviews right now for visibility, and there is certainly potential, so I’ll just leave this here.
