Constantly bugs you to review the damn thing even when you've paid for it and told it to "never" ask you again. Other than that, it's literally the same as every other JDIC dictionary, which is to say it's passable for looking up the occasional definition, but nothing special and certainly not a serious study tool. If that's all you're looking for, Takoboto is better even without paying for it. Not only does it not incessantly bother you with pop-ups asking for a review, it also has a better-designed interface.

Not as good as the iPhone version, but still my favorite Japanese study app. I love the convenience of adding any word I look up to the study list. Complaints: I miss the feature in the iPhone version that would add all kanji in a word to my study list. I upgraded, but when I changed phones, the upgrade was lost and I'm now getting ads again. The app prompts me to leave a review every time I open it, and closes if I don't.

Good and relative, but still has some bugs when doing searches that require closing and reopening the app. Been awhile since an update has been released, so it might be abandoned at this point. App also won't stop bugging me to rate it and crashes when I select an option so I'm postng this review again in hopes the app stops asking.
