There are just features galore. It shows you every conjugation of words, it has handwriting, flash cards, you name it. It even has a function to paste a whole passage of text so you can look up words as you read without having to change apps. What more can I say. Oh yea. It’s FREE. Good job you guys. Wow. Only thing I would suggest changing would be the text/reading tab. Instead of it cutting away to the dictionary, you could make the dictionary excerpt a menu that slides up from the bottom so I can still look at the text at the same time.

I love the Japanese matrix that slowly drifts across the screen but I’d like to be able to change the speed. Really would love a button to color coordinate certain groups of words instead of individual editing saves time on studying this app is fantastic but... Still could improve some things might want to try adding a fibonacci study plan making the text speak without having to press a button when you flip the card it doesn’t speak dictionaries aren’t always just read there are also some unedited misconceptions that hopefully get fixed.

Great! A very quick and handy dictionary to have that also works offline. The only problem is that it crashes every once in a while on start-up. A small feature I'd like to request is to be able to copy words to the clipboard. Thank you!

I studied abroad in Japan and used this all day everyday. I still use it when I encounter words I don’t know! You can handwrite kanji you don’t know, look it up in English, Romaji, or kana. It even tells you the stroke order for kanji and common compounds. It even works offline. Absolute must-have for any Japanese learner! Again this absolutely saved my life in Japan and I’m so glad I got it!

Mi trovo proprio bene anche se sono all'inizio dello studio giapponese. Un'app davvero organizzata, sono molto soddisfatto!! Comoda per chi è all'inizio, come autodidatta e anche per chi ha una certa conoscenza del giapponese!!

I really like this app. I wish there was a handwriting function like on the iOS version. The ads are fairly large so it becomes annoying. Shortly after I downloaded this app I was asking my boss how to use a certain word I had pulled up and it was showing dating apps with questionable photos. It was awkward. Overall, it functions well and I learned to ignore the ads.

This app is so helpful for learning vocabulary and studying kanji. I’m amazed it is free when there are so many paid apps out there with less features. It has been such a great tool in improving my Japanese and it helped me pass my N4 JPLT test :)

The app is simple. Random words are the best for daily learning too, provided with sample sentence(s). Kanji stroke orders are available as well. JLPT words ranging from N5 - N1. The conjugation forms for godan/ichidan verbs are so useful for me, a total beginner. It has constant ads without purchasing the premium version, which is kinda annoying. But please support the developer. The app itself works really well. Give it a try guys.
