Customer Reviews

Love the app


But it's crashing on iPhone 7

Almost perfect


I'm a huge fan of this book and I've been waiting for a long time to have an iPhone app for it. The format is fantastic and the characters are great. It really is a useful book if you are stuck speaking to someone and it's really easier for you to point to an image. My one complaint with this app is that they use way too much kanji. If you don't know kanji (and if you're studying Japanese, you most likely won't), it's easy to pronounce the words if you can read the katakana or hiragana. When using this much kanji, you're forced to rely on the audio and then there's a chance you may mispronounce something. That really is a big disappointment. Beyond that, I'm thrilled that this is finally in app form.



Update: still no updates to functionality or addition of missing sections from the book..

I have the Spain version of this app and it's good except for the fact that the last pages have no color, this japan version is pretty horrible in that it says both English and Japanese. I didn't buy this app to learn how to speak english.
