Amazing. It is my favorite dictionary app because you can search in English, in romaji or in Japanese writing and it will still find the equivalent of what you wrote in your specific writing system that you chose.

The camera mode is a killing feature! Well done! Great app to learn japanese. 有難う御座います. Absolutely Fantastic ! Love it ^_^

I bought this specifically for the ability to look up printed kanji with my camera, but I was surprised by some other nice features. Kanji lookup includes handy stroke order animations. The ability to post a pic to the "wall" is a nice attempt at providing a community to get help with tricky readings.

I love this thing. I run a Japanese language learning company and I will now proceed to recommend this to all my students. Thank you so much for making this awesome app.

Can't believe it's a free app. Great way to translate signs if you're totally lost or looking for something in a large shopping center.

I live in Japan and have been using it for several years now. It has NEVER let me down. It is much faster and more practical than using a paper dictionary searching for each radical.

Absolutely indispensable on my trip to Japan. Makes it easy to search for unfamiliar kanji. Offline feature is very very handy!

I have used a few different apps over the years but this one is by far the best. Walking the streets of Tokyo it's super helpful in deciphering some kanji I wasn't familiar with. Being able to draw and choose the correct kanji was super helpful. I recommend this app for everyone!
