Trending now - The Pocky dance!

What is the Pocky dance?
What is the 'Share Happi Pose'?
Well ... it's sort of advertising.

According to Glico (the company that makes Pocky), the 'Share happi pose' is supposed to look like how you hold and eat Pocky.

The Pocky dance has become a huge phenomenon, and people are learning the dance, filming themselves and uploading to Youtube across Japan!

“The Sharehappi Pose is something that conveys how to hold Pocky and how to recommend it to other people through a unique visual performance. We hope to link copying of the pose to the act of actually eating the product.”

Kana Battle 2 - our favourite iPad game!

Kana Battle 2 is our favourite iPad game to learn the hiragana.
How do you play? Match the hiragana to it's sound, then tap on the skulls to remove them. But that's not all there is to it!
You need to constantly upgrade both your defense and attack to knock out the emoji's that increase in strength.

Overall rating - 10 for fun and 12 for learning!
It can't always be found in itunes, but use this link to connect you to the itunes store:
