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.

This app is definitely something you should get if you’re learning Japanese. It’s my go-to, before even translator apps, when writing in Japanese. The kanji handwriting system is one of the best out there, and the apps flashcards are super useful. It even lets you study by JLPT level, part if speech, or scholl year learned (in the case of kanji) I’ve had this app for so long I don’t remember if it’s free or not, but I promise it’s worth getting regardless.

This is my first time commenting a review for an app, but after using this app for so long, I thought it was worth giving it a review to show my appreciation. It really has everything a Japanese language learner could need: vocabulary, conjugation patterns, kanji, kanji writing and example sentences. It can be used for studying or even to whip out to search for a certain word when out and about in Japan. A fantastic app that I could not recommend more.

I’m going to make this short. I’ve been studying Japanese rigorously for nearly 15 years and have gained *near* fluency. I owe a lot to this app. I use it in conjunction with many other methods of study. I’ve used countless other electronic dictionaries but none have been able to compete with the intuitiveness and crisp UI that this app offers. It has literally every aspect of a dictionary that I need. Example sentences, common compounds, radicals, stroke order animations, verb conjugations; the best part is I don’t need to do a lot of clicking or tapping to get to what or where I need. I cannot believe it is free. But I applaud and praise the devs who worked tirelessly on this app. I sincerely appreciate you sharing this wonderful bit of software with the world, and have not charged me a penny. This is something we rarely see in today’s ad-ridden society. A bunch that truly care about this language and expanding it to the world. You’ve touched my life more than I can explain and I owe a lot to what I’ve accomplished simply to your software. Your work has changed my life and opened many doors due to language fluency and immersion. Godspeed.

How is this free?! How does this exist and why didn't I use this sooner?! This is beyond useful and I wish I had this when I was starting out learning Japanese. I has EVERYTHING you want to know on Japanese. Verbs, nouns, adjectives, proverbs etc. Seriously it's amazing and I'm glad I got this. If this was a product I had to pay for Id do it in a heartbeat. If you're on the fence get this app.

I love the flash card study system. My only wish is that it was possible to make the fonts bigger, particularly for the Japanese. Changing iOS level font size increases the English, but not the Japanese.

The app is really good. Especially if you are already familiar with Hiragana and Katakana. It also provides a way if researching Kanji that you don't know, bc you can't just type the Kanji in if you don't know it obviously. The collected vocabulary is enormous and they cover every possible translation for each word. I love it! I've been using it all throughout my exchange year in Japan.
