Great App Loved it within 10 seconds of use. As described, no more, no less. Under the simple and intuitive interface is a wealth of information to include stroke order (my favorite feature ). Though I'm no expert, like the description states, it should not be use as a traslator, as context and kanji combinations and pitch can affect actual meaning. Oh, and no annoying ads blinking all over the place. My thanks go to the creator of this app. Very good quick reference app.

I feel in love with dictionary. It doesn't take forever to load the words, has the stroke order and pronunciation, AND it's pleasing to the eye. Good job ^.^

Pretty good actually Finally a free jisho that isn't slow or looks ugly as hell, I like it.

Drew Lemmy

Actually good Unlike any other jisho apps on the Play Store this one actually works fast, is easily accessible, looks good and gives you everything you need to know. How has it got only 50 downloads? Yeah, it was released in December but still...
