Jalup App – Notes Feature and Jalup Champion
A few updates to discuss!
Jalup App – User Notes
This is a huge feature update for the Jalup app (currently iOS only). The ability to add your own personal user notes to every card.
This adds a new level of customization to your cards. This can be used to remind yourself of something important, list little discoveries that you make on subsequent reviews, add outside example sentences, or add memory mnemonics. Editing can be done in or outside app. By using the backup sheet you can make big changes all at once to your notes.
The User Note field is also HTML enabled. With a little creativity, you can do anything you want. Embed pictures (make sure you host them), YouTube videos, etc. right inside a card. For example, if I added the following code into a note:
<div align = "center"><img src="https://japaneselevelup.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/Logo-5.png" style = "width:85%"> </div>
It would look like the following in the app:
Eventually I’ll add more advanced features, like storing images directly inside the app and easily adding them into a note. And yes, complete original card creation will be possible one day.
While Android users won’t have this yet, I’m currently working on some good additions for the Android version. One warning about this feature for the few who use both iOS and Android (with imports and exports to sync progress) is that Android can’t handle notes yet in your backup sheet. Your notes will not be included on an Android import (or a subsequent export from Android).
Pre-Orders for Stage Two of Jalup Champion have been met and development will begin on Feb. 8, 2019. Thank you to everyone who has supported this and made this a reality!

Amazing!!! I have been really excited for notes so I can add my own mnemonics. Thanks so much Adam. This came faster than I expected and from the screenshots it seems like a really flexible implementation. Excited to update my cards asap
I know you had been waiting a long time, so I’m glad I could finally release it. It took a while to get it to work easily from learning or reviews, but I think it’ll be a big addition to the app :)
I have been using it like crazy, no issues that I have seen. Finding it very easy to use, easy to add/update, and displays exactly as I was hoping. In short perfect implementation. Thanks again
With the marrying thing, you wouldn’t really be able to take their last name any more than you could registering a 通称名 — as that is actually what you would end up doing. If you go all the way to make it your name , you can 帰化する, in which case you are free to choose your name anyway.
I wish there will be option for even longer intervals, something like equivalent of Anki’s 350-500% interval modifier, because when you learn a lot of cards everyday, you will(I) need to look up words in definition anyway(look up=rep) (branching in intermediate+ decks is awesome) so there will be less unnecessary, painful reps.
Thanks for the feedback. I’ll add it to the suggestion list and will probably add additional Interval Timing settings in the future.
Thank you for bringing the Listening function to Android!
Would it be possible in a future update to select which sentences to use for immersion? Let´s say I would like to listen just to the last 10., 20, 30 sentences that I have learned recently.
Love the app.
Glad you are enjoying it.
It’s possible in the future. I’ll consider it if I make any updates to the immersion player. Thanks for the suggestion.
