I've been studying for barely a year and I find this app really useful. It is easy to use and the definitions are well documented. So even if you are already a Japanese expert or just a tourist in Japan this app might be really helpful for you! I didn't encounter any bug
I cannot understand why there are so many bad reviews for this wonderful app. I live in Japan and have been using it for several years now. It has NEVER let me down. It is much faster and more practical than using a paper dictionary searching for each radical. I'm guessing most of you giving it bad reviews live in the US and have no idea how to use it properly while reading Japanese Manga while living in your parents' basements or whatever. You MUST have proper lighting for the camera to focus. And I don't recommend using 'live' mode. Use snapshot mode instead to freeze the pic and drag the translation box over the kanji sever times until recognized, zooming in or out if necessary. It's not rocket science. And no, this app doesn't translate full sentences. That's your job. And those of you whining that the app isn't free... Grow up! The developer has spent thousands of hours making this awesome app and you are unwilling to spend a few measly dollars for it? Lol. Many of you cannot appreciate or understand how well this app really works in real-world situations living in Japan. Is Yomiwa perfect? No. But it's faster and better than anything else I've used for translating. One feature I would like to see is the ability to permanently save snapshot photos.
Absolutely indispensable on my trip to Japan. Makes it easy to search for unfamiliar kanji. Offline feature is very very handy!
Before downloading this, tried three others. Only this one worked on my Nexus 5. And well, at that.
couldn't ask any better
