Best App I have used Jim Breen's online Japanese dictionary for well over a decade so finding this app for my phone was a godsend. Until I purchased the newer version, I used this app EVERY DAY to look up everything from song lyrics to unknown kanji in a friend's G+ post as well as doing a daily notepad quiz! The newer app is even better than this one but I still highly recommend this basic version.
This dictionary is not practical for everyday use in Japan. For example: I search the common word eat, and 食べる shows way down 10th on the list. Stupid. Plus this dictionary uses free public domain word databases, which are incomplete and unreliable. They are missing many basic definitions such as the word 'windy'. We need a customized and COMPLETE word definition database. Also, there's no common word search filter, no kanji search, and no bookmarking. Don't waste your time.
Best Dictionary App! I've tried so many Japanese to English apps and vice versa. So far, this is the best. The other ones are confusing and very busy. This one gets straight to the point when you look up a word. Love it!
Best Dictionary out there This should be a model for dictionary app makers across the planet. I love how words researched within the app are shown in sample sentences. Intuitive.
Very Good But, SendTo & Backup Problems The SendTo option in version Aedict 2.94 doesn't appear to work. Aedict 2.94 Notepad's Backup option appears useless for upgrading, as Aedict 3 (pay version) doesn't recognize it or won't import it.
The best Japanese dictionary for Android! Notepad backup and restore has been broken for a while. Been trying to transfer my notepad from 2.9 to 3. Might just have to go without it...
