The automatic search function doesn't work. Very annoying.
Clean design and useful features such as tanks look-up make this my go to dictionary. Been using since Alba Josh.
I wish the app would open a search box and activate the keyboard on launch. Some nice changes in this recent update though.
Not quite there yet for me I thought this was going to be really amazing in terms if design... And it is great, but not what i expected. When i opened the left menu i was somehow expecting more features and it seems that the design of that left menu section isn't exactly the material design I'm seeing in other well designed material design apps. And it doesn't have great features that are in done other paid Japanese dictionary apps yet. But I'm hopeful that this app will one day be better and better.
Crashes often It's got the guts of something good, but given the clunkiness and crashiness, I'm a little resentful of paying for it.
Very Promising Aoba is a beautiful material design Japanese<=>English dictionary. It's interface is very intuitive and the information is presented in a practical yet beautiful way. The ability to build lists quickly and easily combined with the ability to export lists makes this a powerful study aid on the go, and the analyzer can be a helpful tool when trying to parse a difficult sentence. The ability to look up words by kanji radical or by scanning images and interpreting them with an OCR are invaluable, practical tools. The app's greatest strength, however,is its developer, who is extremely responsive and who has been making regular updates. This app isn't perfect yet, but I believe in the developer and I think Aoba has the potential to be the most Japanese<=>English dictionary on the Android market.
