Kotoba! (Japanese dictionary)

Kotoba! (Japanese dictionary)

 

Description

(Powered by iSpeech®)

This application is a multilingual Japanese dictionary for iPhone and iPod touch devices. It offers dictionary/kanji and example sentences full offline use.

Imiwa? was created using the amazing JMdict files from the Electronic Dictionary Research and Development Group based on the work of Jim Breen on the EDICT project.

Use the Japanese keyboard to look-up words in kana/kanji.

Use the Traditional Chinese character recognition keyboard included in the iPhone system for drawing kanji on screen.

Imiwa? now uses the iSpeech® technology to synthesize voice in many languages including Japanese! This function requires a network connection.

5/5 stars

This app is wonderful!

:
The only thing i wish to be improved is the thing that tells you about a words pitch-accent. yes, it shows words with its pitch-accent, but not all words have it that should have it. such as はし, it has two different meanings all based on pitch-accent, but it doesn't show that in the app. if this could be improved i and others will be much happier, for pitch-accent is very important in japanese.

5/5 stars

Great application

:
I use this application all the time and the fact that you can save your words into lists is even more useful.

5/5 stars

so handy

:
this is a great app for looking up kanji for word i know, but have a hard time picking out on a sign or map. not having to be online has been a real lifesaver as i have no service in japan!

one thing i'd like to see is the ability to export my list of bookmarked items w/o having to append each one to the clipboard, one by one. this became a particular annoyance when i had to set my phone up as a new device due to faulty software and i had to back up all of the words i starred in the app.

the latest update seems to run faster, and i like that it stays running in the background. this latest update fixes the crashing i had before, and it's great opening up the app right where i left off.
