Japfr is an application running on Nintendo DS to learn Japanese vocabulary. It can be used with the book Japanese in 40 Lessons because it uses the vocabulary.

It was presented in the contest from PAlib in 2006.

Note: The link is for v0.2 only (the latest release is v0.4).


Tested on Supercard SD.
