First of all I love this dictionary as it’s easy to use and has kanji writing directions.
But I just found out they have so much more stuff in the ‘word list’, like slang, categories, etc. and I am utterly amazed. Thank you app makers for making this app so beautiful and handy. I really love it. Please continue to make it free and hope you guys become widely known.

User friendly

This is such an easy app to use, with the ability to look words up via their English meanings, or romaji and hiragana. And the example sentences are very helpful. I’m so glad I found it!

I’ve always wanted to learn how to read kanji and improve my japanese, and by downloading this app, it literally just made it easier!! Easy 10/10; its like the Meriam Webster App, if not, better than it quite honestly. Great job to the dev!

I bought this app when I was in year 12 studying Japanese and this was my go to app for when I was reading Japanese to identify kanji and to find out some new words. It has a lot of features but I have only used a few of them so it’s extremely versatile. I have now graduated school but still keep the app because its is just really good.

LOVE IT

I originally studied Japanese with hard copy Kenkyusha and Nelson dictionaries. I then moved to a Casio Word Tank - and I thought that was pretty good at the time. I could only dream of having a tool like this when I first starting studying Japanese 40 years ago. Brilliant.

Really amazing dictionary for learners!

This app is absolutely amazing. Firstly, for anyone learning Japanese, this is absolutely amazing with helping to remember kanji and kana. This app also gives examples of how words can be used. This is truly a life saver for someone who is in Japan and has a hard time remembering when actually having to talk to someone 😂

The absolute best!

This App is amazing. I have been using it for a long time and it has always been reliable but I never realised the full range of features until today. I know I'll be using it more as my study continues. I only wish it had pitch accent information.

While studying Japanese, this app not only provides examples for better understanding of certain words, but allows you to study with flash cards within the app.
There are plenty of features in the app that are super helpful, like the flash cards, the example sentences, folders that allow you to organise words you learn, a note taking section for words, the list goes on.
Have recommended this app to mates and family, heck, even my teachers and they’re recommending it to more people too.
tHANK THE LORD ITS NOT A PAID APP (YET) - IM STILL IN SCHOOL SO I CANT REALLY AFFORD EVERYTHING IN GENERAL MUCH LESS MEMBERSHIPS OR ACCESS TO BETTER FEATURES IN APPS

This should be a paid app!

I use this very often for checking translations I have made or to check a word I may not understand.

I am learning Japanese at school, and I was able to use this app while on exchange in Japan without data or wifi. You can type in any word in English or Japanese and it will give you the translation. Also, if there is a Kanji you don't know, you can write it with you finger! This is an amazing app and I recommend everyone who is learning Japanese should download it.

This app is absolutely amazing. It instantly recognises kanji (no matter how sloppy your handwriting is) and tells you everything you need to know about each and every one. I used it to look up over 200 kanji and make flashcards with kunyomi, onyomi and english translations and it didn't fail me once. I cannot recommend this app highly enough to people who are learning japanese (like me) or who like to look up the kanji they come across on the street (also me). A must-have app!
