    Best App for Studying Japanese!!!

    Hands down the best tool I have found for use as a companion to my Japanese studies. I’ve been able to increase vocabulary and improve my reading skills tremendously through daily use of this app. Taking a photo of Japanese text, using Google translate to turn image into text, then importing that text into a clipping is a very powerful way to improve reading and vocabulary. The words in the clipping are also then automatically compiled into flash cards for study. Wow, easily worth the cost given the increased productivity in learning Nihongo!!!

    Best Japanese Dictionary for iOS

    I have tested out dozens of Japanese dictionaries over the years (I write about independent language learning) and Nihongo is by far the best option for iOS yet. The developer has really thought things through and has integrated so many thoughtful features sorely lacking in competing apps. I especially like the ability to add photos to definitions/flashcards, the prominent display of “common”/“rare” next to terms, the furigana extension for webpages, and the auto-creation of flashcards based on words you’ve looked up.

    Best Japanese learning app

    This is the best Japanese learning tool I know of. The dictionary is great. But if you only use it as a dictionary, then you’re badly underestimating the power of this tool. With the clipping analysis and safari extension, this is a self contained learning platform, where you can read, learn new words, and review them by flash cards later on. It’s worth upgrading to pro version. One thing needs to be improved is to add a sync feature. It would be good to be able to sync clippings and word decks across iPhone and iPad.

    Hope to improve back up function

    I like this app very much, which can well collect my own Japanese learning materials. However, the backup function seems to have some problems. Why I cannot backup my data to iCloud or Google drive? Everytime I tried, it finally failed. Also, hope developers can develop Mac version. I prefer to use my laptop to import studying materials, and computer keyboard typing would be more efficient and convenient than keyboard on phones...

    Works in a snappy manner, intuitive to use. Responsive developer. The Safari furigana feature blew my mind, though it can’t always nab every kanji. I have an idea to make Nihongo even more “THE” Japanese dictionary app, unless it is there already and I don’t see it. A conjugation list (present, negative, past, negative past, te, masu, potential passive, causative, conditional, volitional, imperative). I may return to this review and add more when I use the app even more.

    This is my go-to dictionary

    I use google translate as well, but this app seems to find the correct meaning better than even google translate. I like that I can search either English or romaji terms in the same search box. My only regret is that I did not buy this app when it was less expensive. I have the lite version and find the pricing to be too expensive for pro.

    I almost never write reviews. I am so satisfied with this app that I just had to though. I have been studying Japanese on and off for approximately 6 months and I got this app 2 weeks ago. The app has been a Segway for consistent study time for me. I recommend making the lifetime purchase of this app if you are serious about learning Japanese.

    Excellent Dictionary!

    Very clean and easy to use with plenty of sentence examples. I like how it also tells you if a word is common, uncommon, etc. helps me focus on the words I'll encounter more often. One thing I wish to see is the conjugations of verbs, plain, te form, masu, imperative, potential, causative, etc.

    Absolutely the best

    I have tried all Japanese-English dictionaries and this one is stellar, dazzling, clearly the best. The examples it provides are numerous and useful, with wonderfully clear voices that pronounce every word. The flash cards are a blessing, great to review. I am in awe of this app and most grateful to its creators.

    Pretty great, a little room for improvement

    This app is a nice wrapper for Jim Breen’s JE dictionary. Has better hyperlinking between relevant definitions than most dictionaries. The “Contained Words” are wrong sometimes, but for the most part are pretty useful when looking up words contained in things like compound verbs. Could use some stroke order diagrams.

    I never write reviews but this app deserves one

    This app is amazing, it is a life saver and it alone has skyrocket my learning. It is the one greatest tool in my learning that I have used and will continue to use.

    For the serious student of Japanese, this app would be good at almost any price. Far more than a dictionary, it deserves the highest recommendation. Many thanks to the developer.

    Excellent, but there is a room for improvement

    The app is excellent, I think a stroke order diagram during the writing practice will be helpful.

    Offline dictionary worked great in Japan! Came home to discover flash cards and clippings, too. Definitely a great app!

    Can anyone PLEASE help me to understand how to use the ‘camera’ function within this app. My understanding is that you take a picture of a small portion of text, the app analyzes it and translates it for you...What am I getting instead? A blue line that bounces from left to right continually with NO END OR TRANSLATION in sight! Am I misunderstanding this function?!?!
