Does anyone have any good app recommendations? Doesn’t have to be free, as long as it is good =)
I’m using the AlliCrab app, and loving it! unfortunately the other one (named WaniKani), which also has a iWatch application, doesn’t work for me (crashes on log inn)
I’ve used an app simply named “Japanese” a lot. Believe it cost a bit, but very worth it! Uses the same repeat system as WaniKani reviews but without input (you decide whether or not you did it right), and doesn’t have lessons (introduces new items based on how many on lowest you have bumped up to next stage)
I also downloaded anki this week, but not sure where to start. Thinking of trying the big set recommended in the pinned topic.
I’ve also used iKanji and iKana. I do like those as well. Believe they cost a tiny bit, but not sure, had them for so long.
I downloaded and tried a whole bunch of free apps when I first got my phone (two years ago) but really only used the ones mentioned above, never took to any of the others.
Most noteworthy on iPad, other than possibility to use most, maybe all of the above, is the “Graded Readers”. I have all the physical books and all the apps (they are not the same ones, though made by the same people =) ) Also found a few similar apps that seems to have been made for Japanese Children. Including a Lion King app where you can change the language! Not made for language learning, but it works. Has a tendency to jump a bit too fast (it’s an interactive story book, you don’t always get to control the speed =/ )
I want the WaniKani app, but have no luck yet. It’s still in progress so I hope they get it working for us soon =)
Also tried Nemo. Seems a bit too basic and not sure if I like it. I’ve done so many “most basic vocab” ones I probably won’t learn much from it. And it plays the sound on the phone, making the watch app useless, since you can’t use it with you phone tucked away in your pocket.
Would be nice with an app that gives you either random vocab when looking at watch or does flash cards, for easy access when there is a short minute at work with nothing to do. Taking up the phone isn’t always agreeable, but fiddling with the watch while waiting isn’t as noticeable. My work place have a lot of dead time
