NihongoUp Phone coming soon!

I’m pleased to announce that NihongoUp Phone, the best mobile solution for a learner of the Japanese language, will soon be available to Windows Phone 7 users!

The application was made from scratch to best fit the Windows Phone 7 user experience and sports many cool features, both from existing NihongoUp software, and new ones developed specifically for Windows Phone.
