This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
This application is a multilingual Japanese dictionary that does not require an internet connection.
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.
While some definitions are available in 4 languages (English, French, Russian and German), only the English translation is guaranteed for all entries in the JMDict dictionary. Initiate a search in any of those 4 languages, in Japanese or in romaji and imiwa? will do the rest.
imiwa? Also includes a rich database of kanji (KanjiDic), examples (from tatoeba.org) and conjugations as well as tools suitable for beginners.
Use the Traditional Chinese character recognition keyboard included in the iOS system for drawing kanji on screen.

Fixed: Export of lists to tab separated values files (TSV) no longer crashes.
Good app, but...
I wish there was an option to make all the font in the app larger (like it was before the new update). I gotta put on my glasses to read the kanji now. Also, I'm not a fan of the new whole-screen window that pops up whenever I want to favorite something. The small drop down menu with all your favorites lists that appeared before was much better imo.
Love the update! 😍
Been waiting for an update for this app for a long time, I am so happy it's ready for the new operating system! I'm not even in Japan anymore and I still use this app almost daily, it's definitely a staple on my phone. Thank you for everything!
Most helpful app
Been using this app way back when it used to be called kotoba. It helped me a lot while living in Japan and for my studies. Recommend it 100%.
