Just wondering what language learning apps people use on their smartphones to learn on the go?

I use Memrise and Duolingo for learning, and HelloTalk to practice languages with native speakers. I'd be curious to know if anyone use anything else, and if they recommend them or not!

To clarify, I'm fluent in English and French, am intermediate level in German and Spanish. I'm a complete beginner in Russian and Japanese, both of which I have just started - so personally, I need an app that runs in either French or English to help me learn and practice the other four!

What is this "smartphone"?

A third party app for WaniKani by Kyle Coburn (kanji), Human Japanese, and Renzo Inc's Japanese dictionary. I'd recommend them, but I'll take the Genki series over Human Japanese for text book, and it was the only one I paid for.

imiwa?'s a great Japanese dictionary as it gives you synonyms, the right order of strokes etc. Don't use any other...

Hi. I've moved this over to the Advice, Info, Recommendations forum. I don't have any app suggestions but for Japanese specifically I did want to mention a new Japanese Language Learning group that has started up on CR. If you join there you could also see if there are apps others in the group are using.
