Description

The Kodansha Kanji Learner's Dictionary for iOS is the best kanji-learning tool available for electronic devices. Based on Jack Halpern’s world-renowned best-selling book The Kodansha Kanji Learner's Dictionary, the long-awaited iOS edition is an easy-to-use electronic dictionary that fully satisfies the practical needs of beginning and intermediate learners.

The Kodansha Kanji Learner's Dictionary for iOS covers 2,230 kanji characters, including Jōyō Kanji and Jinmei Kanji, and and gives learners quick access to all the benefits of the print edition, plus additional functionality made possible by the iOS platform, including quick and intuitive interfaces for looking up kanji by SKIP or by radical, the ability to toggle between kana and romaji display for readings, various additional ways to look up kanji or compounds (eg. by on and kun readings, English meaning, or SKIP number), animated stroke-order diagrams, context-sensitive pop-ups, and much more.

No kanji dictionary on the market today offers such a full range of features in such a stunning, user-friendly interface. No stone has been left unturned to create this high-quality application of superb design.
