This is a really, really good app, but quite frankly, this version of the app is inferior in many ways to the apple version of this app. This one doesn't have the draw to search for kanji function, which is extremely limiting and required me to download a separate app. The other version allowed to search for multiple words in the search bar at the same time (like copy pasting a whole sentence) and the results would show each word in order. This one only allows searching for one word at a time.

There are not enough stars to rate this app! Reccomended by "The Japan Guy" and no wonder! It's proving to be indispensable in helping me to learn Japanese and, as any language beginner knows, we need all the help we can get! 😂

Solid, quite like how many examples and different compounds it provides for kanji. Loses a star though for not being able to easily copy and paste the search results. Slightly annoying when trying to look up kanji for a word where the kanji is only noted in the other ways to write it section.

Been trying to rate this app for years but the android version kept having a bug where the "rate this app" bubble only appears when exiting the app. Overall, good dictionary. Lots of examples. Straightforward without too many intrusive ads.

This app is amazing and I can’t believe it is free! I’m learning Japanese and it’s great at helping you figure out Kanji and building up your vocabulary. I don’t know what I’d do without the ability to (attempt) write Kanji I don’t know, it recognize it, and tell me what the definition is. I’d definitely recommend it to anyone needing a Japanese dictionary. You can skip all of the ones that have in app purchases. This is probably the only one you need.

Everything is ok, it has an extensive words and funny gadgets. Also the mini game of memory cards are great to learn Kanas. Buuuut, The app has an error, when I select Kanji, and I choose the grade then you scroll down through the Kanjis, the app crashes... not cool

Alright, I don’t make a lot of reviews unless an app really stands out. This is one of those times. I’ve been studying Japanese for about two years now, and this app has definitely been one my favorites as both a dictionary and flash card practice. A ton of JLPT vocabulary can be studied and is organized N-5 to N-1. The transitions and aesthetic are pristine and easy on the eyes. Example uses of vocabulary are available and can be easily read with the furigana (hirigana on top of kanji). The alternate text color on the readings is helpful in determining what hirigana is actually pronounce by the kanji and what hirigana is associated with it. There’s nanori readings for names. And, there’s animation for stroke order. Honestly, glad I found this gem. The only thing I would want is more customization for the flash card studying. For example, in apps like Anki, you can create a schedule like 100 flash cards a day. Anyway, bottom line, if you’re trying to study Japanese or want a dictionary, this is it.

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.
