Has a wide range of vocabulary and common expressions. Excellent for flashcards and looking up the many meanings of a single word. Such a great tool for learning Japanese.

I truly cannot believe this app is free. It's FANTASTIC. Sure, you can't actually draw kanji in the search bar, but you can look it up by radicals and build it part by part, and it'll give you recommendations with said radicals until you find the one you're looking for. They have every verb conjugation, and even expressions derived from the kanji that can't be found in conventional dictionaries. Great app for every level learners. Love it

If you are obsessed with Japanese language, culture, food, etc. then you will also be obsessed with this app! If you’ve run out of hearts on Duolingo, then you can hop over to this app and study with flash cards, or just look up some Kanij you’ve always wanted to know. Reference to both Kana and Kanji, you will never wonder again “Hmmm… what does that mean again?”. Thank you so much for developing apps like this, you make the world a better place. ありがとうございます😊

Whenever i look for online resources to study languages, i am constantly left with disappointment at the sheer lack of free resources with which to study my target languages. And every one i use barely helps me through the language im trying to learn. This single, free application has faight me all the japanese i know today. And thanks to it i went from knowing 500 words to over two-thousand thanks to its GREAT SRS and progress-tracking system. Quite frankly there is a lot of potential in this application and it’s company, and i 100% HOPE that Renzo Inc. seriously considers making other apps exactly like this to help people achieve their language learning goals. The ONLY thing I dislike about this app, and there is absolutely very little if not nothing i dislike about this app but this one thing: there is no notification system. A notification system in this day and age will be a small, but substantial contribution to the effectiveness of this application to its many users, it would keep us learners consistent by reminding us to study and as a result we’d forget mess and procrastinate far less towards our linguistic goals. This company should seriously consider making more language learning applications because i would be more than delighted to use the exact features and layout this application has to learn far more than just Japanese.

I’ve been using this since studying Japanese in middle school, through to my senior year, and now again as I resume study to prepare for a holiday in Japan and eventually moving there. I don’t think I would have made the progress I have this year without it, and it was a huge help while I was a student as well. 本当にありがとうございます!

Super useful. Each world usually has pronunciation guides, writing guides, multiple definitions (when applicable), kanji roots, and examples. This dictionary also includes slang, which is very helpful. I ditched my paper dictionary completely for this app. However, the writing search doesn’t work very well. It was off most of the time, even for simple kanji like 私 and 中.

This is by far one of the greatest dictionaries possible, as it also teaches you components, speech, and EVEN HOW TO STUDY different writing! It’s also extremely easy to use, has an even more excellent interface; and, despite all of this, the app doesn’t cost you a dime! Great way to learn japanese, and a great way to study japanese.

I'd love to be able to nest folders or lists into other folders. Also, it'd be great if the Kanji section in References included Kanji by JLPT level and not only by Grade. But overall, it is a useful app for people learning Japanese.

Being able to create SRS flash cards of the kanji I’m studying in my class is so useful! Thank you.

This happened a little over a year ago, but the developers were quick to address a bug that caused the app to crash when trying to look up kanji. In addition to that, it’s a really useful app for quickly searching word meanings and pronunciations.
