  • No frills, easy to use

    by StrangeloveM5

    I picked up two J-E/E-J dictionary apps, and this was the first one. Overall, it's very nice I think. It doesn't have a ton of extras, but it's quick and searches are easy to perform. Verbs are fairly easy to find accurately so long as you use "to" when you're looking something up ("to drink" or "to walk" and so forth). Personally, I don't have an issue with doing that since I already think of verbs in those terms after studying Japanese for a few years, but I can see the point about some people just wanting to punch in "go" and getting back an instant result. That aside, after using "to go" as per my usual test to see what I get back, it did return the appropriate common verb that I was looking for (iku). It's an excellent value and a nice Japanese reference app.
