More than a dictionary


Look up words. Discover the language. Create vocabulary lists. Study using flashcards.

Japanese takes first prize for design, with a beautiful, clear interface. It understands how a user thinks: on opening, it presents you with a search bar to immediately type in, but also a handwriting, kanji component and SKIP search option, all on the same page.
This app really great dictionary for your phone: breaks-up words for pronunciation, explores conjugations and is very soft on people coming to the language for the first time. If you’re getting serious about learning the language, this will be a potent tool in your arsenal.

I've found the ease of searching and ability to create personalized Japanese word lists invaluable on my trips around Japan when I'm either stuck for the right word, or curious to find out meaning of one I've seen or heard. The kanji information and stroke order diagrams are a serious kanji learner's best friend.

Great app, but the stroke order for the kanji are very rough. It looks as though it was an afterthought.

It's one of the best Japanese dictionaries in Android but it lacks search by draw. Also a way to sync my list over my devices would be nice.

Very good. Sample sentences using the kanji, including furigana, are great for learning the flavour of the word, not just the word itself.
