We value our customers' satisfaction and don't want you to make a wrong purchase. Please read the following notes carefully:

• The app shows pronunciations in hiragana, not romaji. Do not buy this app if you can't read hiragana.

Customer Reviews


This app has a great design and I like how it incorporates the example sentences with the furigana - it looks really good. A big plus for me is that it can usually understand the kanji when I draw one for when I'm reading a paper book and want to look something up and can't guess the kanji's reading. I also love the flash cards. It has beautiful animations and you can scroll back and forth and also test yourself using kanji, furigana, or English, or any combination as you like. Plus this app gets updates from the author unlike some other Japanese apps that were good but have been abandoned.

Perfect for studying.

This is the best app I've found for translating Japanese and keeping track of vocabulary and learned words. I like how each kanji has a list of compounds so you know words you may frequently see that kanji in. It also shows what radicals are a part of each kanji. Being able to create vocabulary lists and flash cards is also great. Also the handwriting kanji recognition is really good even if you don't get the stroke order exactly right. This has been indispensable to me.
