Digital Version

I’ve received quite a few emails and comments since I announced these sheets from people who want a digital version.

First of all I want you to know it’s coming. While I personally think that cheat sheets are most useful as a printed item, I realize that not only are there portability advantages, many people are just more comfortable with digital formats.

However, digital and print are two inherently different mediums, so I want to do more than just a point-blank PDF export of the cheat sheets.

In print medium, we have one tall sheet with two sides. In digital, there is one wide “sheet”, without a second side. Obviously, the layout should reflect this.

Also, in a digital medium, it’s possible to add information and/or extra sheets without worrying about print and lamination and shipping costs, so adding a new sheet to the set is a viable possibility that I will be considering.

As to the question of when a digital version will be available, I can’t say anything with certainty at this point. Currently my priority is getting the print version out of the start-up phase and operating like a real business. After that I’ll be able to pursue the digital version.

I hope to have something for you well before Christmas. 🙂

Please feel free to comment and leave any suggestions you have for the digital version.



  • Hi
    Just wondering what the situation is on the digital versions – are they still planned to be released digitally?

  • Numbers and Time has been released digitally. Check here: http://cheatsheets.nihonshock.com/sheets/numbers-and-time-pdf-version/ 🙂

  • Hi. I really hope you´ll release the rest of the sheets in pdf format. I’ve bought the Time & Number sheet and I love it. I will buy the print version on amazon, but I would love to have them in my iPad also (I don’t have any problem with purchase them twice. But you can consider to give a digital version to all people who have bought the print version)

  • Great job my man. I wish I had these things when I studied Japanese in Japan 17 years ago. I’m sending the basic japanese pdf to my friend studying casually. This will really help him.
