Customer Reviews

The best

As a Japanese student in college I cannot recommend this app more.
Kanji draw feature saves me daily, I love being able to make lists and study them, and the pre-built in stuff is fantastic. Runs smooth, I've never had a single error. You can even learn on the main menu.
I love. This app.

For any level!!

No matter what level of Japanese you're learning, this is a must have app! Very impressive. It's easy to use to look up almost anything. Even for people who know almost no Japanese. Highly recommended!! 👍

Unbelievably great

Can't recommend this app enough for learning Japanese. The flashcard feature is so useful, though I do wish it were possible to export the lists for printing, etc.
