The Best!

I've studied Japanese through many apps, but this one has to be the most useful one I've found yet. In less than a day you can begin forming simple Japanese sentences! They slowly build upon the previous lessons until you can form larger sentences and understand how the grammar works. Best of all, there are NO ADS! *big sigh of relief*

However if you want to fluently know the kana as well as speech, I would recommend a different app. This one is best for learning speech alone, as they only briefly cover kana in each lesson.

The only problem I have is the prices for subscribing. $10 every month is well beyond my non-existent budget. I would pay $1 every month, or $1 for a chapter unlock... Maybe I'm just a cheapskate hehe.

Great app for beginner just too expensive

It's a great app with interactive interface to learn Japanese and good detailed explanation on grammar. I took 1 star off for the subscription model:
1. It is too expensive even with education discount.
2. Each chapter has only 5 lessons and each lessons only cover a few content. It's easy to finish 2 chapters in just 5 days. The subscription restricting 2 new chapters download is too strict, have to wait till next month to start learning again

I will go for Minna no nihongo instead(I don't know about the English version but the Chinese version is quite good and it's based on a commonly used well-trusted"textbook" for Chinese community to learn Japanese)

Excellent program for conversational Japanese

Pros:
- There is a focus on getting sentence structure right instead of memorizing canned phrases.
- Pacing is excellent and you can comfortably do (and redo, for mastering) a lesson on a subway ride.
- Audio explanations can play even from the lock screen. Again, great for the commute.

Cons:
- Not much help with written Japanese. But conversational is what counts anyways.
- Subscription model is expensive. If you're serious about learning and spending a several months going through all 160 lessons (currently), you're looking at maybe $50+. Not bad for language acquisition but it's steep for a conversation-only application.
- Audio speed is bugged. Adjusting the speed will not only adjust the Japanese audio, but also the English explanations. So if you have a good ear and want to hear the Japanese words at full speed, you end up with your narrator sounding like an auctioneer.
