  1. Amazing

    Posted by Nicolas on 1st Mar 2013

    This dictionary is simply amazing. On top of hiragana and katakana, you can also input kanji. Usually it has no problem recognizing my handwriting and if it doesn't, I can simply select the character and then press a button and it will show me all similar one so I can change it. That functionally is very useful when an unknown kanji is written so small that I can't identify all strokes and reproduced it.

    With this, I no longer need to use multiple dictionaries, and there isn't a single word I've searched for that I haven't found. It saves much time.

    On top of that, I haven't even used all the functionalities yet! This dictionary is simply amazing and I know I will use it for a long time.
    Highly recommended, regardless of your Japanese language proficiency.
