A variety of language translators and phrase books are available on the App Store, but Human Japanese ($9.99) offers a more thorough study of the language. It patiently walks the learner through the vocabulary, provides language exercises, and has an essential introduction to Japanese language and culture.
Human Japanese not only has a beautiful interface, it’s a powerful language study program—as powerful as more expensive and less mobile desktop/laptop solutions. It shows how the iPhone is becoming more than a communication device—it’s evolving into a very capable and intelligent machine. Finally, it’s very handy to have a program like Human Japanese on your iPhone—it makes it easy to take advantage of spare moments and down time during the day to learn the language.
