Bug 1: Kanji in 1x1 widget is not being centered vertically in landscape orientation (it is centered horizontally, however). Bug 2: When rotating from landscape into portrait and then back into landscape, the widget gets stuck on displaying "Loading..." Bug 3: Kanji in the widget is way too small, especially in landscape mode, it could use some bigger font size. Perhaps make the font size configurable? Will edit the review if things get fixed.

This is an adequate Japanese dictionary app but the user interface could use some work. I think the biggest reason I don't use it more is that there isn't a very clear separation between dictionary entries if there were a comma separating entries that would go a long way to making this app more usable.

It used to be amazing. However, I've installed the latest version on my new phone and the kanji recognition no longer works. It keeps prompting me to download the kanji recognizer app even though it's already installed. Without this feature working the app is basically useless to me.
