Ratings and Reviews
Works, but nothing special.
I did not experience the audio issues as others have reported - everything works fine for me.
This app is designed to be used with the companion book, but you don’t need it for it to be useful as an alternative audio/vocab source for those who like to self-study. It’s obviously geared toward business types; my first encounter with the Japanese word for lawyer (弁護士) was in this app.
That being said the app has no kanji - it’s all kana.
Definitely worth the price, would buy again.
Very convenient way to learn japanese and UX is simple and clean. Great app. Hope there will be for Japanese for busy people - level 2 and level 3
Audio not working for me either, despite paying for the full version. Also no support contact information listed.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
