Great but still need some improvement to be excellent I love it so much. Learning japanese is become simpler for me now. But still i have to look back to my Kanji Dictionary because i couldnt find some words here. So many word that contains more than one kanji and when we dont even know the read then we search it by radicals, its only showing one kanji. Means u have to re-checking for the other one. It takes more time. But over all this is a great apps. Good job.
Fantastic app Just a couple of things I'd like: Kanji recognition (though the search by radicals is useful too) Clearer definitions or fewer in the cases of some... there are often several definitions for the same word that native Japanese seem to disagree with... Beyond that, it's a superb app! It's far cheaper than a denshi jisho and it's offline unlike many others... Keep up the too work!
Necessity Rarely do reviews, can't hold myself back here though. Started learning Japanese 5 years ago, live here now. All this time JED helped me tremendously (esp.in combination with anki). Love the sentence examples. There are two things that would make it perfect: the ability to add new entries to the dictionary, and kanji recognition (need to use different app simultaneously). Apart from that, great! Thank you!
Very useful! Very useful application! I use it all the time when I'm looking for Kanji that I don't know how to read. I combine it with Kanji Draw (I guess the stroke order, which is fairly simple to do), and if Kanji Draw finds what I'm looking for (sometimes my stroke order will be off, or I missed some marks), then JED will always find what I'm looking for, giving me every meaning, reading, and how to properly use the word in sentences. I use to have Kotoba on my iPod Touch, and this is a great alternative for Android! I do wish that I could get the nicer look, like in Pictures 3-6, rather than the default, hard-coded look. It doesn't take off any points, considering I'd prefer functionality over looks for the purpose it serves, but it'd be a nice option. (HTC Droid DNA)
Richly featured, very usable This app is an amazing resource for the studier of the Japanese language. It's flexible, and yest at the same time fairly simple. Features such as the stroke-order digrams round out the package and make it an indispensable ttol in the study armory. I'm stunned this thing is free, and I'm with another reviewer in calling for a financial contribution link for the developer.
Japan resident, Japanese language student It's not bad, but it's not very practical. It tends to give unusual words and unused pronounciations. Like the provided pronounciation for 風邪 is wrong, the correct かぜ is only listed as an alternative and easy to miss. However the kanji search by radical is invaluable as is the ability to look up phrases. For general words I'd recommend something else.
