Might be useful, probably worth the $1
I have not used similar apps, so i don't have a goos baseline for what constitutes "good" or expectations about features.
Two things that would make this much more useful:
1 Native Japanese / kanji / written words so I could show a shop keeper the translation.
2 ability to reverse the translation mode so I could hand my iPad to someone for them to communicate back to me. Communication is a two way street, this is like a one way street with a 3mph speed limit.
Shortly after purchasing this App I could not find the phrase I was looking for so I contacted the creators of the app. Within an hour they had emailed me both the translation I was looking for and pointed me to where I could find it in the installation. They even acknowledged my thank you.
So with this type of support I am quite confident that the App will be verY useful on my upcoming trip.
This app is easy to use. I bought it to use with a young student who only speaks Japanese and was frustrated in class. We were able to use several of the phrases to communicate with the student. A few different phrases would be helpful for my use but I think it work well for travel. There are lots of phrases!
