What's New in Version 4.3.2
- Fixed issue with Google sign-in using a web browser
- Added time zone setting
I have been studying Japanese for several years now but still knew I had a lot to learn. As a self-taught Japanese speaker, it can be quite discouraging when the tools are not able to meet you where you are at. However, iKnow! Has done a wonderful job combining an SRS with not only vocabulary, but also grammar. While grammar rules are not explicitly explained, one can't avoid picking up the grammar rules through the example sentences and the many venues of study. Finally able to focus my studies through a streamlined application that is beautiful on mobile as well as on the browser. Very user friendly and definitely worth the reasonable membership cost.
Mixed learning / quiz styles. Sentences are great for understanding grammar. Uses typing to prove recall.
It starts with multiple choice, and lacks mnemonics, but it's real value is in the sentences if you're already learning kanji elsewhere.
You must know Kanji
This app was much better when the user could change the settings to romaji or kana.
Now I am forced to use the web version to get those features.
