    Its alright. I did not sign in, but you should have the basic options to save to favorites, have different N level kanji, view articles by easiness and view off line. No kana is clickable and a lot of Japanese is written in kana, even if there is a kanji associated with it. It is bare bones, but usuable and it is free so it gets three stars for now.

    This app is really good! But I think it should have "save favourite" function and "categories" of each articles will be more perfect! Thanks for created it 😌

    I really like this app! The layout is simple and nice which makes it's super helpful in reading Japanese! I have a few suggestions that I think would be really beneficial for users, such as being able to favourite words so we can look back on them, and to be able to copy and paste from the articles! Thank you!

    This app has helped a lot with my reading when I combine with kanji flashcard drills. It tends to reload the whole app on my tablet if I switch between Google Translate and an article, but no such issues on my phone. I love the JLPT level on the card view, this is very useful.

    I wish it can be available offline. And can navigate through oldest stories to new one. And importantly, can copy texts so I can have it translated. You have the best layout btw, totally readable and not distracting to the eye.

    The app is very nice but unfortunately hardly usable. Scrolling is very slow. If it could be fixed the app would be a 4 star. Also verbs are not translated. I guess you are using jisho? It supports that. Anyway verbs need to be translated as well. Ultimately it would be great to choose a feed freely or being able to paste a text freely. Maybe, if you plan to keep the app free, you could consider releasing the code on GitHub so we can participate.

    It is a good app love using it. It has a great UI. Great reading practice. I did have an issue with the app but the developer took care of the issue. Not only a great app but a good developer in my book.

    This app is great for reading practice. I use it everyday. Please please add some feature so that we can easily read old news without scrolling down too much.(something like date filter).

    The only thing that I find troublesome is lack of any sort of ratings, nor ways to somehow bookmark the text you're reading. Information on what level of Japanese does a text use would be a great advancement for the reader.

    I quite like this app. But, a request though - Please add N1 reads frequently.

    Would be very beneficial to have each word- kana, kanji & particle be able to be clicked on & understood. Also have the kanji color coded (for example) for each N level & an option to search/sort through stories by N level. Right now I am just randomly scrolling. We also need a night time mode & a faving option. Maybe search by key words as well. If I was into "festivals" for example, it would show me all stories about them. Decent app, but needs more options and filters to rise above the pack

    The app is great for practice reading. However, for the next update, please see if you can consider my concerns below: - Its hard to scroll down further, can we have page numbers or links to different reading? - Would it be possible to access the dictionary when offline? - Some kanji are easy to understand. Good to have this in the dictionary. But can we also put dictionary for the other terms which are not in kanji? Will change this to 5 star once I got feedback.
