imiwa? (Japanese dictionary)

By Pierre-Phi di Costanzo

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.

Description

(Powered by iSpeech®)
This application is a multilingual Japanese dictionary for iPhone and iPod touch devices. It offers dictionary/kanji and example sentences full offline use.
Imiwa? was created using the amazing JMdict files from the Electronic Dictionary Research and Development Group based on the work of Jim Breen on the EDICT project.

Use the Japanese keyboard to look-up words in kana/kanji.
Use the Traditional Chinese character recognition keyboard included in the iPhone system for drawing kanji on screen.

Imiwa? now uses the iSpeech® technology to synthesize voice in many languages including Japanese! This function requires a network connection.

What's New in Version 4.0.1

As of now and going forward, imiwa? is iOS7 only. If your device runs an older version of the system the App Store now allows you to download a version compatible with your device.

* You can now nest vocabulary lists to better organise them
* Personal notes for dictionary and kanji entries
Implemented a « jump to dictionary search » shortcut at top of side menu: From any screens you are at most 2 taps away from starting a search
* Russian interface localisation

Enhancements:
***************
* Implemented swipe to favourite on example sentences
* Multiradical search is much much faster

Customer Reviews

Astonishingly Wonderful!

As a Japanese teacher (& perpetual student & language enthusiast), I have grown to adore this app. I love the copy to definition & the stroke order page & examples. Beautifully laid out & hugely useful & shall send in a donation sometime soon...as this is one of the best apps I have seen (iPhone & iPad) & wonderful not having advertisements & distractions. Often use it...
Thank you & keep up the wonderful work! Ali

why is it now so huge?

I love the app, but whilst it says it's around 300mb on the store info, it's actually taking up 700mb on my phone? It's a bit too much if I'm honest - is this meant to be the case?
