I'm Justin. I moved to Japan in 2002 and I'm married to my Japanese wife (lovingly called "Spellchecker"). I've taken the JLPT tests up to N1 (yes, I was there) using this app. I speak, read and write Japanese fluently and I'm an overactive developer who can't sit still.

What's new in version 4.35
- Minor changes readying for future announcements.
- A fix for audio not playing when the hiragana field is empty.
