Great, simple dictionary app, except for one thing. It seems results are cut-off sometimes and not all possible results are shown. This is extremely annoying when trying to look at all the words that contain a particular kanji. For example: when searching for "正", 正しい is not in the results. At the very least there should be a way to see further paginated results.

It can take a bit of finessing to input a word and sometimes it can be hard to find the one you should use, though it does tell you what words are more commonly used. I use this app mostly because I can input a whole sentence and it'll define each word individually, or when I need to look up the different conjugations of a verb.

The interface is straight to the point and so fast to use thanks to its english to hiragana input; You don't have to switch keyboards at all. It has good filters such as verb/noun/adj, and particularly the "common word" filter. Ability to send cards to Anki makes it a brilliant pairing for vocab mining and the card creation interface is quite customisable. Customer service is also amazing - I emailed the developer recently and got a response and a fix across less than 48 hours. Exceptional!
