By far the most complete Korean dictionary I've used. Has a weird glitch where the search bar will reject the first character that I input (I type on the keyboard but nothing populates the search bar). After the first character, everything else gets typed correctly. For example, if I was trying to search "괜찮다", then after I finish typing the word in the search bar, the search bar will have "ㅗㅐㄴ찮다" in it, and I have to correct it. Also no dark mode. I would pay $10 for dark mode, seriously

A very diverse dictionary with no need to intergade between korean/English. I love the idea of putting the level of each word and having an infogrharaphic section. Easy to navigate - my goto digital dictionary. The explanations and examples are useful for choosing the most appropriate word to use. Not really a down point: American-English is used, so some searched words won't appear (i.e "colour" "color").

Thank you for using my app! I am glad that you are finding it useful! You are correct, the National Institute of Korean Language chose to use American-English. They do have a comments and suggestion form on the official site if you wanted to suggest more localizations.

Great dictionary for learners. The one-click anki export feature is amazing. Would occasionally be nice to be able to export more than one of a word's meanings at once to a single card, but as-is this is still by far the best and fastest way to go from dictionary lookup to anki review.
