So... good things first, right? Well, it's a good app to learn hiragana and all, better with a device pen thing, and I learnt my vowels. But that was all I could do with the free version. Anyone really serious about learning to write Japanese would need premium and that's awesome, I look up to those willing to pay, but I was just trying to help a friend with her lessons and I will sadly need to find another app.

The app is great. However, when reviewing vowels for katakana, the character “i” was unable to be written (every time you try to write it, it resets. But amazing nonetheless!
I love the game every one should get it but there is one thing that’s it’s not letting me do when I’m riting with out the trasing thing I’m trying to guess but it just comes and doesn’t even give me a chance please fix it and if you don’t I’m riting a nother report about how bad this game is fix it! 😡😡
So far so good. Only in the 4th chapter but enjoying it. Hopefully it gets to applicaiton standards later so as to be able to hold a simple conversation.
This app wasn't really useful for me, it didn't help me at all it just made me angry because I couldn't get it.Overall i would't recommend this.
Trying to buy all lessons but when I tap on it nothing happens pls fix
This has really helped with my school work
I bought all the lessons, and I’d have to say that the price is relatively cheap considering the fact that I’m able to learn the fundamental basics of Japanese. This app uses spaced repetition and active recall (the two most scientifically proven techniques of learning and memorising), which is a big plus for me because I was able to learn both hiragana and katakana in 2 weeks (on and off). I was able to communicate at an extremely novice level to my peers after completing level 3. However, I’d like to see a manual review mode, where I’m able to select what I want to review, similar to that of the kanji app. I can’t seem to rely on the app 100% of the time when it comes to the daily reviews. I'm certain that I have few holes in my understanding at levels 3 and 4, and I’d like to clarify my knowledge by manually picking what needs review. It’d be tiresome and demotivating to go through all the lessons again. I’m usually pretty on and off with Japanese, and since I was a complete beginner, I’d like to know where I’m at.
Help... trying to buy but the link does nothing
Please fix urgently so I can update the rating to 5 stars
Has been incredibly helpful as a supplementary tool for learning Japanese. Can be completed and practiced in short intervals through the day making it good for busy schedules or to make killing time more productive.
Not sure if it’s just me but the app is fully broken on my iPhone 11.
To Howell Peebles,
I love the game,I’ve been playing since 27/10/19 and It’s amazing!
Tho Ive been seeing a problem and hope you can fix!ʕ•ᴥ•ʔ
I’ve seeing something that I hope you can change
Learning Japanese is golly good but there’s not that much to do in this game so hope you can add a LOT more to do in it
Hope you can see this rate and btw its an awesome appヾ(๑╹◡╹)ﾉ"

I like this app but I wish you didn’t have to pay because I already know most of hiragana but I really like this!
This app is poopy droopy it glitches but its good sometimes
Definitely worth for people want to practice Hiragana through writing. Motor skill retain our memory better than just verbally speak or read the words. Inexpensive investment for Japanese learner app.
This is handy and teaches you basic but would be better if we had more lessons for free
Had the best time learning from this efficient app. Worth paying $13 for all the lessons!
It’s so great but I was only allowed access to the first five letters of each alphabet.
Good app straight fallward
Easy to use
I only picked up Japanese recently and this app has been a godsend, however for those wondering you have to pay for all the lessons (which is fair, the developers do need get something for their work) and the tracing mechanics need some work, I have drawn scribbles as an act of frustration and I got the character correct but in some cases a perfectly fine character will be incorrect for no apparent reason. These are rare I admit but it’s rather annoying when you’re studying.
I am loving this app, starting with absolutely no knowledge of Japanese. I have completely mastered hiragana, Katakana. I never experience any bugs it works perfect for hours. I’ve learned heaps! I love this app
I hope As I take on the stages of this App, I will be able to hold a conversation with a local Japanese and will be able to translate into English.
I am still in Hiragana stage 1.
Errors in katakana, I follow the path for “i” but it’s wrong...
I have not learned Japanese before and after using this app I finding it a lot easier and fun to learn the basics. I recommend this app for anyone that is interested in learning Japanese for the first time.
The concept is amazing, really helping with learning. I have learned and properly memorised the whole of hiragana in 3 days. However some of the characters, especially that for “mi” み, seem to never register even though it feels like I am doing everything correct. If changes where put in to fix this and other characters from doing this it would be a 5 star review from me. However this is a very critical flaw that prohibits efficiency in learning.
Hi I’m not much of a review writer so forgive me.
Great app. I was having trouble learning all the hiragana and this really helped.
I’ve begun learning Japanese with the infamous Genki 1 & 2 books, adding this app to learn how to write the characters correctly and memorise them has helped incredibly, as well as helping with numbers, basic time and sentencing etc
What would be awesome to include in an Anki style flip card review
But overall, a massive help and highly recommended to beginners
I started it - 1 very short lesson in. Turns out I gotta buy the rest. I only got through the hiragana base vowels; 'a', 'i', 'u', 'e', and 'o'. Then I went to do the rest of lesson 1 and it was all locked and I had to buy.
I’m on the long road, but this is actually quite enjoyable! Surprise surprise!
Paid to unlock everything but lessons still locked
This is a really effective app for learning Japanese. Just a couple of issues such as some of the hiragana writing practice can be super sensitive and not let you ‘pass’. For example trying to write ‘o’ or ‘me’ it never accepts my attempt even though I am super accurate. Also when translating sentences in the ‘verbs’ section sometimes it gives you a short sentence to translate which is fine, but then there are blank spaces for two sentences and lots of elements to choose from but no clue as to what the second sentence is that needs to be translated. With a bunch of trial and error you finally work it out. But a very effective app and well worth the $12.
This and the partner kanji app are fantastic tools to learn Japanese. They provide a great foundation in Japanese language.
If you work your way through the apps over a year or so you can then move on to learning and conversation one on one.
Only $3 to learn Hiragana I love it. An amazing app. I am travelling to Japan for a month and want to be able to read some things. Fun to learn and lets you draw the characters. I haven’t done the katakana or kanji yet and I’m sure they’re fabulous too.
Is is really good for learning.👌💯🤧🤧🌏⌚️🖥🚪
Paid to get all levels open the app a few weeks later only to find that they’re locked again. Why?
The lessons are very useful for beginners, however I haven’t been able to use the app even one time without bugs interfering. Very frustrating!
This is a great app for beginners but the thing is that it costs money to unlock the levels which is really annoying and I don’t want to spend money on it. Education is never free ;(
This app has been invaluable helping me learn the basics. Well worth it.
I did the vowel section of hiragana three times because of its crashing, I’ve deleted several apps, restarted my iPad and deleted and reinstalled this.
All good until the part when the app will hang forever. Please deliver this problem. Thanks.
Great for revision and refreshing your memory and a great alternative to physical flash cards. App works great and I have only noticed a few bugs when working on stroke order using your finger to write the character but should be fixed in no time.
Crashes while doing the Review
I hope that with more people downloading this app, purchasing the additional lessons and leaving feed back the app will continue to improve :)
Great app! Works well with my style of learning, and the best by far of several apps I tried. Would recommend people give it a try.
Only issue has been trying to use the feedback in app. Would like to be able to reset each level. Tried all of them before purchasing, and after learning Hiragana and Katakana, I’ve forgotten all the stuff I did with level three several weeks ago!
Am looking forward to trying the Kanji!! App. :)
This app has been great for helping learn basic Japanese. It has a good level of interaction and has regular tests that revisit the areas you need to focus on
Have been searching around for app to learn Japanese and this is the best one I've found. It teaches you how to write the characters correctly, instead of only reading all the time. I've found this extremely helpful for remembering the characters. You get a few free lessons, then pay to open up the rest, but it's inexpensive and I've found it's worth it. You can trial each section of learning before paying, so you know what you're getting when you open up the rest. Great app.
