Rebalother9999 - glitches
has a lot of glitches that make it hard to navigate the app
Mobile Holmes - Yes there are sentence examples and sound
Just a note—Some of the reviews state the app (3rd addition) no longer has sentence examples, but it still does. You just have to click the caret (upward arrow) at the bottom of each study card to switch to the full sentence. The examples are shown in English & Japanese with Japanese audio for the whole sentence.
Gabbyeva - No Sound
Using this app on an iPhone 8 for supplemental studying for my 日本語 class. Cool idea if the sound worked.
Update: found a reviewer that mentioned that your silence button has to be off for the sound to work. Now that the sound works, it’s a great app.
SarahJoy3D - Helpful and easy to use
This app is very helpful for studying along with the text book, and I have my flash cards wherever I go. I use an iPhone 11 and haven’t had any issues with the sound so far.
Rebekia Krum - Genki needs to fix the audio so it actually works
It’s uber frustrating to pay for an app and have basically half of its function not even work. Especially when you’re trying to learn how to speak a language. :/ I need to not just see and read Japanese I need to hear it so I can practice. Also, the textbook has places I’m supposed to listen to audio from the app. Again. Not helpful. Just fix it please
Geimon-kon - 2nd edition is much better
In the “updated” app for the 3rd edition textbook they removed the best feature of this app, which is for every flashcard, they also had the vocab word placed in a sentence, which was a terrific tool for listening comprehension and understanding grammar. Even if you are using the 3rd edition, I’d suggest buying the vocab app for the 2nd edition. A few words have changed, but that extra feature makes all the difference in the world.
007vangon - Good Vocab Practice
I gave it a 4 because it took me forever to figure out how the audio worked. Make sure you are on Ringer Mode. If your phone is on silent the audio does not work. Other than that it helps with practicing basic Vocab.
Shakir o - Initial audio issues ( but it is fixable !)
Been experiencing the same audio issues as others have mentioned. Once fixed, the app is exactly as you’d expect it to be.
TO FIX AUDIO:
1) make sure your mute button on the left of your phone is turned off so the phone is not silenced.
2) if this doesn’t solve, people recommend closing all apps.
The first step solved it for me, I am really happy this was able to be resolved.
Miina<3 - One this Missing for me
The only thing missing to me is a spaced repetition function. It be easier to keep track of the things I need to study again.
Skipper643 - Additional vocabulary missing
I gave it four stars because the additional vocabulary is missing (or I can’t find it).
Ibean24 - Great Product (Audio Works…atm)
Good app, nice to have the official audio and graphics, but you can get the same from a community Anki deck. Not worth the $6 price tag if you have access to Anki.
Peoxgx - Audio playback doesn’t work
Anybody else experiencing this?
So i had the 2nd edition which is free and suddenly the audio playback wasn’t working. I thought maybe if I upgraded to the paid version it might work. But it’s still not working. It is really frustrating. Can you please look into it?
Nihon-22 - Audio stopped working
I have the paid 3rd edition and the audio stopped working as well. Use on an iPhone 11. Perhaps due to an iOS update? Running version 14.3
The poppycock - Sound doesn’t work??
The sound hasn’t worked from the get go, not sure what’s going on. Tried uninstalling and a few other methods, nothing.
Robledogdd - No sound
This new version has no sound which defeats the purpose of hearing back the word and learning can this be fixed PLEASE???
JPL_learner - Sound does not work
Sound never worked.
Ariahhankins - No sound
There’s no sound. I just paid for all three. I want a refund
Hypepersonsittingonacouch - The audio just stoped working
There is another review with the same issue! :(
Matchagirl123 - Missing feature
No sentence for each word. They have the flash card feature in the Android app, but not in iOS.

El Bowito - SRS would be very, very useful
A good flash card app, charming drawings and good audio, however I think that SRS systems would make using the app easier and more enjoyable overall.
Sjmarr - Audio doesn’t work
It would be a great app if the audio worked. Unfortunately it doesn’t so it’s not helpful for pronunciation.
Oneilljoseph - Edition 3 finally
Looking forward to the remaining apps to hit Edition 3. Had to wait almost a year for the second volume, and now Spring 2021+ for the apps is disappointing. However I suppose the wait is worth it.
