Ratings and Reviews
This dictionary is a god send. I’ve used it since I first got the IPod Touch 4gen and I’ve never had a problem; even now on my IPhone 6. As long as you can draw the kanji or get in the ball park, stroke order doesn’t matter, you’ll find the kanji you’re looking for. Additionally, the meaning, JLPT level, different readings, and the list of words the kanji is used in make completing assignments a breeze. Also, there are vocab lists separated by JLPT level.
TL;DR: Lovely app, highly recommended. Get it.
Crashing nonstop after updating to latest version on ios 9. It was nice...
Very nice dictionary for free
The most important function a kanji dictionary needs is an easy method to search up words that you can't read.
Being able to get the kunyomi or onyomi of a unknown kanji is the hardest part. The best dictionary's will have drawing recognition which this has (and is a rare function). It's much easier than using radicals to search. Once you know the way to read it you can pair this with any other dictionary as well.
