A great app! Specially the references are quite good, a lot of radicals, Kanji, classifications, and many other things, definitely worth it!!

I have tried many apps to attempt to learn Japanese but this is this best option. Great for learning different words and has a complete dictionary of common words.

But nope, you get everything without paying and no adds. I just want to support the developers seeing this is such a good app. Wow. I can’t believe none of the features are paywalled. Thank you so much!

Unlock the knowledge in this app as you learn the language. I originally downloaded this just because I had an interest in seeing the translations of English words. Fast forward a few months and I am using this app alongside a Kana/Kanji tutoring app to learn to read and write Japanese. I uncover new knowledge in Japanese from this app every day. I definitely recommend. UI and design is easy to use and pleasing to the eyes. Favorite/most used part of the app is definitely the Kana charts, at this time.

This app has an excellent Swipe To Type feature. I would love to see the developer take this into a separate app with a keyboard being the main function. Love it!

It has all the Kanji you could need, verbs, nouns, adjectives, really everything. All for completely free. Stroke order, radicals in the kanji, on and kun readings, example sentences, everything is included. Someone made this app because they want the world to learn this beautiful language, and I’m so grateful!

Es un excelente diccionario, intuitivo y fácil de usar, y tiene las referencias muy bien hechas y clasificadas por temas y niveles. Es fácil perderse un rato explorando los muchísimos kanjis! El único detalle es que los trazos de los kanjis están horribles, pero la verdad es un detalle pasable, les recomiendo usar otra app para aprender a escribirlos.

I can’t usually be bothered to write reviews, but this app is just that helpful. I passed the JLPT 2 years ago and have continued studying Japanese since. I use this in place of the fancy electronic dictionary and kanji dictionaries I bought. This app has it all. From kanji look ups, to example sentences, to flash cards for vocabulary and kanji, this is an amazing resource for the casual traveler or the serious student. I use this app when I travel to Japan and keep in touch with my Japanese friends. I’m studying for JLPT N1, and this app is essential for checking kanji, grammar, and expressions. And it’s free! Highly recommended.
