虽然是全英文的,但是强烈推荐下载!!!可以找到很多词的英语词源,用起来也没有障碍,其他的词典软件要么收费,要么词汇量太小,资料不丰富,这个我横向对比了很多软件,真的很不错。

I've used this app for years, and it helped me become fluent while living in Japan. It has a dictionary for both words and characters. It has sections divided which you can study, whether you're doing JLPT or kanji kentei, school years, or just a random topic you want to brush up on there's probably a section for you. The only thing I wish this app had was a searchable dictionary of sentence examples, like the Imiwa app has.

The best single all in one Japanese app there is. Also the best language learning app there is. This includes every category of learning a language. It even includes idioms and proverbs. The language app I’ve ever experienced. Wish they had a website too!

Best for flashcards. Occasionally doesn't have a word or phrase, doesn't have a good English meaning written with it, and very often doesn't have example sentences. But just for grinding out study flashcards it's great.

I have had a hard time finding an app that I find works for me in studying Japanese. When I first started learning Japanese, one of my biggest problems was that I’d hear new words or phrases being spoken when I was going about my day but before I could write them down, I’d forget them. So then I started carrying around a notebook to study Japanese but carrying it everywhere I went was a hassle and I also needed my phone to check the meaning of new words. This app solved all my problems. You can quickly type in a word in Japanese or in English and find that word as well as words with similar meanings. Making flash cards and being able to study them has built my vocabulary and helped me learn unique words and phrases. Whenever there’s something I want to make note of and go back and study later and search the word on the Japanese app and add it to one of my flash card decks. I use this app so much it’s one of my main apps at the bottom of my IPhone screen. I’ve tried Anki as well but I find this app to be much more straightforward and user friendly. I’d definitely recommend this app as part of your Japanese study arsenal!

I found and downloaded this App out of interest as a beginner learner of the Japanese language. It’s well above my current level, but an extraordinarily interesting App. Having played around with it for about 20 minutes, I have already learned something useful. This will be really useful when I further my learning and progress. For all of its technical content and ease of use, I am really quite astounded it is free. An utterly superb App which I will begin to use on a more regular basis.

This app is great for dictionary purposes and also learning purposes (aka flash cards). However, this is what I want to talk about, the flash card feature. This can definitely be improved upon, with more in depth features like better SRS customization, and also sharing! Currently you can only share your saved words, but if you can also share a quick srs flash card to your Mac/PC that would be amazing. Nonetheless great app, I just think the FlashCard feature could be optimized with better customizations features, and also a share feature!

This is my favourite app, out of all apps period. It’s flawless. My family used to host foreign exchange students from Japan and they always had these handheld translators. It was before PDAs and Smartphones were around so to me they were so futuristic. Now that I’m the one learning I totally understand why they were always translating on the go. Like now it’s so easy I give them so much more credit in hindsight as they had it so much harder trying to learn abroad. I’ve been using this app for about a year now and it’s helped me so much with my studies. Turning on the Apple keyboards for Japanese input let’s you step it up a notch and search Japanese words. The app doesn’t do phrases which is a good thing. It’s taught me how to translate things on my own through trial and error which has been the most important part of learning Japanese for me. Once you get used to inputting Japanese characters (either the Kana or Romaji methods). Again this is the best made app I have seen. If anything a MacOS version would be dope. Thank you so much for all the help and the nostalgia of having a handheld English to Japanese dictionary like my old student friends. Maybe one day I will find them again!
