  • Inaccurate

    Tried to use the camera feature with my genki Japanese textbook. It was very inaccurate and couldn’t identify most words. The feature appears to be in early development and i would like a refund.
  • It works

    Not crazy about some of the layout, but this was definitely worth buying. Super handy, and the search option actually ties conjugations back to their dictionary form. Not only that, but when you put conjugations in, the app shows the dictionary form along with (passive), (potential), (wish), etc...

    While I’m learning on duolingo I often look words up here. I like i can do English or hirigana (with romanji keyboard). There’s one feature ask and that would be details on a radical so I can learn the breakdown on the kanji. That would make this app near perfect IMHO. Thanks!
  • MOST USEFUL JAPANESE APP FOR STUDYING

    Seriously, as the title says, this app is AMAZING and it’s probably the most useful tool I’ve ever used in assisting me with learning new vocabulary, new kanji, and how to use both in application. If you’re studying Japanese and you need an app that’s really gonna help you excel, it’s this one. So many useful features like writing kanji and recognizing it from your handwriting and from a photo you take/upload. Helps me learn new characters and words. 🤟🏼

    It can save a lot of time. Worth it.
  • The most essential app I have

    By Rlomure
    The dictionary is comprehensive and complete, even including verb conjugation/inflections and kanji radical searches. The OCR works surprisingly well, considering the limits of the technology. Honestly the radical search is so easy to use I’ve never needed the OCR feature, but it’s pretty nice when reading or studying sometimes.
  • Awesome Helper for Travel !!

    I love this dictionary, but the latest update as of July 10 has the handwriting input crashing the app every time I attempt to use it (iPhone 6S with iOS 11.4). Edit: As promised, the bug is fixed! Many thanks to the Yomiwa folks.
