This app has helped me a lot to study Japanese. I have been self studying for 1 year and this app is a go to resource for me. The one thing I would love to see in this app would be sentence building tests and grammar study/tests.

It's really worth the price. It gives realistic definitions without the obscure ridiculous ones other dictionaries sometimes include which could get you in trouble.

This app is the best app for learning! It’s not just a dictionary, you can also use flash cards you make, and it has so many subcategories to reference how much progress you’ve made, and a bunch of informative tabs on everything! I don’t usually write reviews but this app is so perfect and helpful for my Japanese studies. I don’t have money for any programs so this has been a very reliable resource for me.

This is a fantastic dictionary and it has a ton of incredibly useful features like flash cards, lists of JLPT kanji, and paragraph reading helper. I’ve been using it for years and it’s the best fully featured Japanese dictionary on the App Store.

A truly excellent app that has helped me no end. I wonder if the word lists could be synchronised to Google Drive? It's a shame to lose all my word lists when I change phones.

This app is near-perfect on iPhone. I deleted all of my other apps. On iPad it needs support for handwriting in the same way the phone does. The Traditional or Simplified Chinese keyboard works all right, but it would be great to have a native function so I don’t have to switch between keyboards. 4/5 on iPad, 5/5 on iPhone.

This app is amazing. I had it for a while but have not used it until now..how is this free??? It has nearly everything you need besides grammar to learn. You can make flash cards instantly from any word you look up. It makes things so much easier. I just wish I used it earlier... Only thing missing from this app is iCloud sync. For now I have to make backups of my progress and import them between devices.

Unbelievably amazing. So much thought was put into designing this app, even the search feature where I can just see words float by that I can click on if they aren’t familiar. Perfect on every level.
