Kanji recognition tool is useful. Overall it has a lot of features to study vocabulary. It gives examples of the word you look up in a sentence. You can tap other words in the sentence to look them up, and retrace your steps back to the word you were looking up. Information about the word is very organized. All official conjugations are listed. Many compounds are listed, when applicable. Highlighting a word is possible. If you can’t decide what word you want to look up, clickable words start scrolling across the search screen from right to left. I don’t use any other apps for Japanese other than Audible.

only 1 thing I wish I could change (would be nice to have the option) is to remove the examples which would allow more space for notes (I like to put compounds) even more since the examples are often too complex for the kanji level... but amazing app 👍

Just moved to Japan and this is my husband and I’s #1 app for studying and learning and helping us out in those “I can’t remember that word” moments. There is no better Japanese learning app out there. It’s a blessing that it’s free. I would easily pay money for this.

I love this app but the stroke order animations are stale compared to the iOS version which has fluid strokes that look nicer. 5 stars for the iOS version, only 4 for Android because of that.

I love this app but the stroke order animations are stale compared to the iOS version which has fluent, soft strokes which also look nicer. 5 stars for the iOS version, only 4 for Android because of that.

The study feature is the best I’ve ever used. Timed repetition of kanji until you memorize them, where nearly every word is clickable until you reach a page you understand, and work your way up. 5 stars!!!

I rarely give reviews but I just had to for this app. I’m not going to actually state anything because everyone else feels the same way. I’m stunned.

Great app, but for some reason the iOS version has more features. For example, the Android version does not show the intransitive/transitive version of a verb when you open its entry.

The only thing that prevents me from using this dictionary on its own (and rating 5 stars) is that It would be nice if it also showed how common, uncommon, rare, archaic words/phrases/etc are when you look them up
