Great offline tool with quality sources. The interface is a wee bit clunky though, for example the setting to always open to the search on a new launch doesn't work consistently and I often end up at a blank screen and have to open the menu to get to search. I've also had ads occasionally briefly reappear despite having bought the ad-free feature.

this app is just perfect. BUT one thing. it always crashes whenever i scroll down a list of kanji that has a multitude of strokes. it generally crashes 1-3 seconds after the beginning of the scroll. i am using an iphone 6 if that is the problem

This is an entire learning system. - Dictionary - Kanji learned by school grade level - JLPT levels - Example Sentences - Sections for parts of speech - Notes can be attached - Lists can be created - And (what is as near as I can tell) a spaced repetition learning system.

One of the best, if not the best, Japanese dictionary app that is more than just a dictionary. It has a great reference material as well for both writing and vocabulary.

Works well, though it's worse than the iPhone version. Therefore 4/5, it would be 5/5 if it was the same.

I’ve been learning Japanese for a few years now and downloaded many apps and this is the best and most comprehensive one. The kanji stream in the search feature is ingenious, you can study practically any list you make, copy and paste text, see stroke count, radical meanings, example sentences, conjugations, JLPT, kana, and school age references... they thought of everything!

Great! But it doesn't have the writing option like the apple version which was really helpful for me and I relied on it for a number of years. I hope there is hope in the future for this feature to come over to the android version. I'm completely loyal so I'll use it anyhow. Hehe
