Doesn't really recognize basic kanji. Photo recognition would be nice.

Nice addition for it to suggest as you write strokes! This reduces my error rate greatly.

@Daniel battery statistics show historical data, they don't get cleared when you stop using the app.

by Daniel the 7/9/2011

Ate battery life. Wouldn't disappear from battery usage list even while not running. Usage was 40% or more.
