Smartphone Applications

   The world has become a convenient place. One can get a lot done just by using smartphone applications. Today, I will be introducing 3 applications that are useful even for people who have just arrived in Japan☆
 
VoiceTra (Voice Translator) (by NICT) and Google Translate
   Both applications provide impressive interpretations when given sentences of reasonable lengths.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Japan Life Guide (by CLAIR)
   Information on 17 topics of life in Japan written in an easy to understand way in 14 languages! The app will also notify users when an earthquake over seismic intensity of 5 occurs in Japan. It is probably not an app that you will use daily, but it will sure come in handy if you need an encyclopedia of sorts!
 
Requesting for redelivery on LINE for Kuroneko Yamato
   If you need a redelivery for Kuroneko Yamato, doing it using LINE is the easiest way! All you have to do is to add the Yamato account as a friend and register yourself as a Kuroneko member for free. You will then be able to receive notifications on the estimated date of arrival, and for failed deliveries. You can also request for redeliveries or change the date of delivery before it even happens. Although this service is only provided in Japanese, other than the initial set-up, the usage of this application should only require basic Japanese.
