No nonsense, does what it says on the tin.

I recently discovered this and I've been using it to add and review vocabulary I look up when reading, vocabulary I learn during conversation practice, grammar points and sometimes I add Wanikani leeches to it for extra practice. It copies Wanikani's aesthetics and the SRS system is set up similarly. Really easy to use. I noticed it wasn't on this site already, which surprised me, so I've added it. I really can't fault it as a learning tool.

Very nice application and a good foundation for self-learners. The highlight is the SRS system which is proven to be effective in learning foreign languages.
