Best Japanese kanji recognition app out there Excellent!!

by A Google User the 1/30/2013

Great! For those who will be taking the JLPT exam, i really do recommend this app (since my waterloo is memorizing enough kanji to be able to pass the test). The widget is awesome. Maybe you could include a refresh button so that the kanji would change on a daily basis ("kanji for the day"). And also include a romanji translation. This would make it perfect. And yeah, a japanese reading of the kanji instead of english would also be nice.

Lovely Stuff ! If you're already a student of Japanese, then this should be a familiar tool on the web. Love it.

Very nice

BAKA Idiotic. An English interface app for learning kanji yet the TTS doesn't pronounce the kanji;. it pronounces the English definition. Are the developers daft, or just high? once again update did not fix the tts . uninstalling.

by A Google User the 10/17/2012

Samsung Galaxy S2 Doesn't display any kanji in search.list etc. probably a bug in the font, when I type kanji somewhere else, they work just fine, just this app dysfunctions, rendering it useless completely
