"Before I'd used the J Phrases app I wasn't too serious in learning Japanese. But the app and TheJapanShop.com in general has made it seem a lot easier and more fun than I thought it would be!"
2,700+ Japanese Phrases all with sound; hundreds of lessons; constant updates
"Regularly updated, large variety of ways to learn. Has to be one of the best Japanese apps out there" - user review
"This is a great way to learn conversational Japanese. Good for beginners and intermediates, kana and romaji, quizzes and flashcards. Perfect."
"I have tried most Japanese apps on the app store, and this is one of only two that I keep. This one offers vocab and lessons, the other I keep is a dictionary. Extremely useful with frequent updates. Highly recommended."

"Fantastic depth, so much to learn. Far better than those over priced apps that teach just one aspect. This is a really good and surprisingly comprehensive beginners course."

Perfect for those just starting out with Japanese. Designed for those with little or no Japanese knowledge, this iPhone app has over 2,700 audio files of Japanese phrases recorded by a professional native voice actress. Many phrases have cultural notes to make this audio phrase ebook all the more useful.
The lesson section has HUNDREDS of pages on hiragana, katakana, grammar, and more. PLUS nearly every Japanese word found on the pages has a sound file that plays when tapped.
Although this will be helpful for those traveling in Japan, it isn't designed to be a travel phrasebook, but a conversation phrasebook. It is best for those who want to quickly learn conversational Japanese with correct pronunciation. The words and phrases encountered here are among the most used in everyday conversational Japanese.
Nothing can take the place of a good textbook and this is certainly not an attempt to do so. We highly recommend getting a textbook to keep your learning structured and regular.
A great way to learn vocabulary and grammar is to memorize phrases and to know when to use them. Listening and repeating the words and phrases will also help improve pronunciation and listening comprehension.
This Application includes:
* 2,700+ crystal clear audio recordings
* Voice recordings by a native speaker
* Hundreds of lesson articles all with sound for the Japanese
* Organized into logical and useful categories.
* Interactive multiple choice quizzes for every category
* Flashcard Function for all words and phrases
* Spaced Repetition - view words you don't know more often
* Random -- randomly display one of the 2,700 phrases or words
* Study Bank -- favorite any phrase to study or email to you later
* Settings: Turn on or off ROMAJI!

Ratings and Reviews
Just started studying and find this very helpful. Would be great if future versions allowed more interaction. Perhaps selecting a word in a phrase to hear it spoken alone with the meaning provided. Finding app very useful!
JPhrases app not too bad
This app has good content, but type is very small (I cannot read some content) and some features don’t work on my WiFi connected iPhone 6. I would love to try this with larger type and ability to make all functions work.
Good learning app
This app is awesome for learning basic Japanese. The pronunciations and lessons are very helpful. The quiz feature is also very good for learning vocabulary.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
