Kaku is Japanese learning app aimed at beginner-to-intermediate learners. It helps them with sentence structure/formation by combining a number of tools into one app:

- Jisho.org dictionary look-up on highlighted Japanese or English words. Quick Replace (⌘ + R) on a highlighted English word to replace it with the Japanese equivalent.
- Text-to-speech audio translation which highlights the text being spoken so you can shadow read and improve your pronounciation
- Saved sheets that sync between your iPhone and iPad so you always have them with you
- Common word lists across many categories
- Grammar examples from the popular Tae Kim's Grammar Guide that provide a template for your sentences
- Clipboard auto-translate so you can copy any text snippet on the web and quickly see what it means
