* WHAT OUR (SUPER AWESOME) FANS HAVE TO SAY *
“I have no Japanese experience, so I was curious what would happen if I gave it a shot. I was immediately hooked and found myself learning the basics without even knowing it.”
“I’ve been studying Japanese for 2 years and this is the first time I’ve come across a program I can’t wait to use everyday.”
* THE SCIENCE BEHIND MINDSNACKS *
At MindSnacks we like to keep it fun, but we’re serious about learning. That’s why our Japanese app includes 8 challenging games designed by education experts. Each game teaches a specific skill and helps create a well-rounded learning experience for both kids and adults that goes well beyond basic flashcards.
Of course studying is only worth it if it works, so our unique algorithm reinforces the learning process using proven methods from the field of memory studies. Over time, the games adapt to your individual performance, selectively repeating Japanese words, phrases and grammatical points with which you’ve previously struggled. In other words, as you learn Japanese, the app learns about you for a more effective learning experience.
Whether you’re traveling to Japan for pleasure or learning Japanese for business, MindSnacks will help with your grammar and vocab so you can become less reliant on a dictionary or translator. Great for beginning and intermediate learners of Japanese, MindSnacks is like a helpful Japanese teacher that goes where you go and teaches on your terms.

What's New in Version 3.3.7
- Bug fixes
- Performance improvements
Great way to start getting used to certain words and phrases in Japanese. I have used this and it is so much fun learning while your on the road, plane ride, etc. I started using Rosetta Stone after a few months of the 50 lessons from this app, and boy does it help. Best money I spent in the App Store ever!
Make a note: like any other language learning application. You must have patience and are willing to want to learn a new language. Of course certain words from one language to another doesn't have a direct translation but if you look up the word on your spare time and you see what could it mean in the context, you will then understand. Don't get frustrated and rage quit on yourself! Not everyone is willing to learn a new language in their spare time :D
Fun but flawed!
This is a nice and easy Japanese review game- fun and informative. I would say it is currently the best on the market. But it has some bugs in it (as most apps do) and I hope they are being worked on. The game has a reset button that doesn't work. I wanted to clear my progress and start again from the beginning, but it only explained the program to me again instead of resetting my completed lessons. It now crashes when I try to reset it. I tried to download the app onto my phone hoping I could use my account on another device- but was wrong. I am signed in as the same person, but it is not acknowledging that I have a paid account. Please fix these bugs! It is a great app that I currently cannot use due to these problems!
Love the game, but...
I want to start buy saying I love this app it's so addictive. It brings fun into learning a language, but I would like to see a couple of improvements. When I master a lesson I would like to have the option to replay the games in Kana and Kanji not just in Romaji which is currently the only review mode. I attempted to reset all of my progress to view Kana and Kanji game mode but I was unsuccessful. The app started me over at lesson two not lesson one as I wished. I continuously receive cannot connect to server messages when attempting to reset to lesson one. Please work on these issues and Thank You for creating this app.
