Pros and cons of Karate Terms app for iPhone and iPad

Karate Terms app good for

This is exactly what I needed! I recently startedvtraditional shoto kon and need too learn these terms. One suggestion, add a flash card feature.
This app has a nice, clean, simple interface. Ive only recently started karate, but this app seems to have all or most of the terms I need to learn for now. It woud be even better, though, if there was a way to go from Japanese to English so I could work on recognizing the Japanese terms directly.
along with being in the martial arts, i am also learning japanese. this app is great for both. however it would be great if there was spoken word with it.the fact that it does not is the only reason i did not give the app 5 stars.
Great app, but definitely would like to hear the proper pronunciation for the Japanese words.
The terms that are in there are great. I love how how it works too-spinning the wheel to get the words you want. It just needs some more terms. There were only a few in there that my kids are using in their karate class.
Its a great app and all but the only thing it is missing is the proper pronunciation of the japanese words.

Some bad moments

Did not work, downloaded twice to be sure but both times you tap the app & nothing happens. Messed.
Trying to use this with my 4 year old. Needs to be more interactive.
I loved this app. Until it stopped working. Ill re-rate it to five stars when it works again.
This is crap i get it an i can use it when is this going to be fixed i teach karate an i wanted to compare terms but i cant if it doesnt work
It show you stuff but not want I wanted and it stopped working. BOO
One not need pretend be Nippon-Jin to make wise of Karate... make student look racist.
