"Much more than a simple phrasebook!" - AppAdvice.com
Learn Japanese Phrases, Grammar, Hiragana, Katakana, and Kanji
For Beginners and Upper Beginners on your iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad
"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."

"Just started learning Japanese. It's a real help. Sensei approves as well."

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!
* Settings: Turn on or off Auto Play
* SEARCH -- now you can quickly find any word or phrase in the app
* Works even without a network connection (except for a few videos in the lessons)

What's New in Version 3.4.1
We fixed the missing images from the tutorial. (sorry).
Also--someone left a review saying they are still having trouble with audio. We have tested it thoroughly, but there could be something we missed. Please contact us directly help AT thejapanshop.com. We cannot respond to reviews, unfortunately.
This has been a great app, only negative I can give it is an issue when using the quizzes. Sometimes it will give you the translation for something like おう being king but give you two choices for king and only one of them is counted as right. There are a few other times this happens as well I think it might be giving a choice to a different writing of the word or different kana as between hiragana and katakana
It's a minor gripe for a bug in the program but is just annoying enough for me to mark down a star.
Great App- Little Spelling errors
I love this app, especially the grammar lessons and kanji sections. I still have yet to try out the rest of it!
Just some minor spelling errors and such I found in the grammar lessons, if you guys wanted to touch it up in the next update 😊
88. The last sentence [english]: "Today I went shopping and at at a restaurant..."
Also I was thinking it'd be cool to have kind of a...original playlist? Like so you can add certain lessons/flash cards to your own groupings. I just thought perhaps it'd be easier to then organize the grammar 100 for your own use, to weed out what you know and what you still need to study.
5 stars all the way!
This is the BEST Japanese app I've ever paid for.
Before I knew about this app I was stuck with google translate which didn't really do anything for me. Then I got the demo version of this app and after a while decided it was time to buy the full version and I do NOT regret it at all!
