This application is a multilingual Japanese dictionary that does not require an internet connection.
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.
While some definitions are available in 4 languages (English, French, Russian and German), only the English translation is guaranteed for all entries in the JMDict dictionary. Initiate a search in any of those 4 languages, in Japanese or in romaji and imiwa? will do the rest.
imiwa? Also includes a rich database of kanji (KanjiDic), examples (from tatoeba.org) and conjugations as well as tools suitable for beginners.
Use the Traditional Chinese character recognition keyboard included in the iOS system for drawing kanji on screen.
- Italian language in dictionary definitions
- Similar kanji information
- Faster dictionary and example search
- Kanji lookup by external reference number
- くれる and いい conjugation
- Images search shortcut (tap and hold Japanese word in dictionary display)
- Save backup to cloud services
Worth a million dollars
Looks pricey, but i have used this app over five years, possibly longer when the name was “kotoba” this is hands down THE BEST dictionary learning app for japanese. And they even animate to show you kanji strokes!
For japanese synonyms and antonyms, flawless... the best thing though... if you hear someone say a new word... you can type it in English characters, and find it!!!! Type hiragana, and find it! Pass the phone to your friend, and they can type it... FLAWLESS!!! This app is for literally anyone! Thank you guys so much... if you ever update, i would have no problem buying it again, and again... but updates are free???? Wow! Best app in the world!
Probably would have given up on Japanese if not for this app
Across eight years of studying Japanese and four years of living in Japan, I've looked up 3000+ words (I know because I logged the on the list functions), and I would guess that there have been less than 100 times I've looked up a word and it wasn't in this dictionary. Worth the cost of buying a smartphone to use this app.
Awesome free app
The analysis function is amazing, much better than Google translation. You copy a sentence from a conversation, for example, then open this app, it will automatically analyze the sentence for you (what words included, their meanings, and you can further click to each word to learn more). No ads, great! Thank you, Costanzo-the developer!
