My Vocab Sheep is a Vocabulary and Kanji APP made for Windows and Android.

main features:

  • easy navigation: swipe to go next/prev, click to toggle solution
  • create new lists with any spreadSheet editor (excel, google sheets etc.)
  • sort vocabulary into categories (nouns, -ru verbs, -u verbs etc.)
  • tap and hold to remove the current word from the list (can be restored anytime)
  • save your session (remembers the current word & lesson, removed words etc.)
  • switch between a dark and white color theme
  • have an awesome sheep icon on your homescreen :)

I created this app during an exchange semester in Japan, because I struggled to find a simple vocabulary app that reads data from my own CSVs and works on windows as well as mobile. I also wanted a filter for -ru, -u... words and an easy way to hide already known items (temporarily).
