To Be: ‘Is Not’ lesson broken
The app is great except for the ‘Is Not' lesson in the To Be section. I keep typing “Takeru is not 18 years old.” which is the correct answer WORD FOR WORD but it says it's incorrect. I type it in Japanese and it still says it's incorrect. The same thing happens in the next question: “This is not professor Satoko's car.” For some reason it keeps saying the correct answer is incorrect. I want to use this resource but it's so frustrating that I might delete the app

Scammed? Paid 30 bucks for the pro version, and now can't access the account at all. No help from support at all.

Why and Dark Mode is for people who subscribe to plus content??? MY EYES BURN WHEN I LOG INTO THE APP...

Dark mode requires a subscription. You can literally only do 1/20 courses per N level without a subscription. If it was a one-time pay, sure.

It's been 2 weeks since I replied them an email about getting the error message saying "authentication failed" and I still didn't get a reply.

Recently it's become very buggy and un-inspired. Sentences for review are always exactly the same and leave little room for understanding nuance. Often the app does not register that I'm tapping "start" or "continue" on the screen to get into my review or finish a lesson.

Regret paying for
The free Beginners course is great, but I began to get pretty annoyed with the app starting with the JLPT5 section. Many of the answers that you have to choose from are in straight up kanji, which you obviously won't be able to read if you just graduated from the Beginner section. The answers don't always have furigana as well, so you're basically just guessing on those questions. The questions allow you to press/hold for a translation, however I don't see why the questions need to use words that are so difficult. Like really specific office-related terms, cmon, why not build example sentences that use more basic JLPT5 level vocabulary?? I don't even use the app anymore because of how frustrating the user experience is. I give this app ALL the stars for the free Beginners level but anything past that, I regret paying for.

Started N3 level today. Presentation of information is clear and simple. Different question types (fill in the blank, order the parts of speech) are what I hoped for. My complaints: 1) DARK MODE unavailable in free version (this option is for health, so it should not be paywalled) and 2) no where mentioned that the free app limits you to only one "topic/course" (at least from N3 level) before requiring you to subscribe. Not a fun surprise. Just tell me openly, please.

It's good, but the text is too small, I don't have 20/20 vision apparently so it's mostly my fault. Great app!
