A Very Useful App

I like the ability to write kanji with a stylus to find the reading and meaning. However it is sensitive to stroke order and if you are very far off it will turn up blank results. So beginners should learn writing rules well. This app could help you practice.

This dictionary is a god send. I’ve used it since I first got the IPod Touch 4gen and I’ve never had a problem; even now on my IPhone 6. As long as you can draw the kanji or get in the ball park, stroke order doesn’t matter, you’ll find the kanji you’re looking for. Additionally, the meaning, JLPT level, different readings, and the list of words the kanji is used in make completing assignments a breeze. Also, there are vocab lists separated by JLPT level.

TL;DR: Lovely app, highly recommended. Get it.
