Edit: the developer worked with me via Email correspondence to test a beta patch making this work on Android 9 / Pixel 3 again! Super cool dude, setting my review back to 5 stars. This application is downright beautiful. I didn't know a dictionary application could also be fun and entertaining. Integrated study tools are a huge bonus. Also free of ads... Would easily pay 5 dollars for this.

Latest update resolves OS 9 (Pie) start-up crash. Would love a way to sync vocab lists across devices, but otherwise this app is really helpful! -- Crashes at app launch. Pixel 3, OS 9 (Pie). seems to fail around "creating database."

Out of all the Japanese apps I’ve tried, this is definitely the best. It’s helped me improve my Japanese, and it’s my go-to whenever I need help with translating a word or sentence. Very helpful, I definitely recommend this to those learning!

Great app, can be a little vague on the differences between similar words and many are missing examples.

pour chercher un mot sous ses différentes formes (kanji et/ou kana, voire romaji si on ne sait pas...), les mettre dans des phrases pour mieux comprendre son sens... utiles pour mes études du japonais. Merci aux concepteurs de cette application !

This app helped me through 4 years of high school Japanese class and I’m still using it now in college. My sister used it when she was studying in Japan. All of the definitions are legitimate and the extra features are easy to use and helpful. I really like being able to draw kanji to search, and this is the only way I’ve found to be able to do this. And on top of all of that, you can download it to your phone and it takes up less space than Snapchat. The entire language on hand with no worries about internet connectivity.

This app is so useful, well organized and easy to break down. As someone who has learned other languages before starting to learn Japanese I couldn’t ask for more. It seems like it would just as useful to a beginner as it would be to someone who has spent years studying Japanese. I especially like the idiomatic phrases section and how words are categorized into different topics such as “art” or “agriculture”. It makes it very easy to learn in a way that is suited to the learner. If you use this app all that’s left is to practice speaking and listening. I’m so excited to use this app and can’t wait to travel to Japan soon and actually be able to read, write and speak the language instead of just knowing tourist survival phrases like “where is the bathroom”. It makes my dream of teaching there seem much more attainable since I have such a good tool to overcome the language barrier I currently face.

For years, this application has been the only reason I carry an ipod touch with me everywhere I go. It's missing a few key features that are available on the iOS version but I'm thrilled to finally have it on my Android and look forward seeing this app shine through as the indispensable Japanese study tool that it surely is.
