Building the app
To develop the app, I use android studio. This is the best way to build it, because you can easily modify some of it too. If you don't want to use android studio, you can still build the app with only gradle.
You can help too!
Lastly, note that you can help make this app the best. You can help in so many different ways, some of the greatest are listed below:
- Translate the app and this website
- Talk about it to fellow Japanese learners
- Report a bug, or two
- Suggest improvements and more data sources
- Write some code and send me a patch
In any case, I hope you will enjoy Nani as much as I enjoyed writting it!
