    This app is simply amazing. It not only has vocabulary but also many Kanji and their components. Everything is very clear. The examples are very helpful, too. I love that I can scribble something and get the Kanji that I'm after. I use this app every day.

    I highly recommend this app. It is extremely convenient and easy to use. I have no complaints. It is worth every single penny. It's good for vocabulary and grammar. Some of the aspects I really like are it's example sentences on a majority of words, flash cards, organization of words based on JLPT level, and translation function. The translation function won't translate directly into sentences, but it will translate individual words and allow you to look at the dictionary entry.
  • iPhone Only? :(

    An otherwise fantastic app for English-speaking learners of Japanese, Midori has wonderful options for searching and learning Japanese, even in spite of a few "Japanglish" example sentences... at least for the iPhone. The iPad version of this app is outdated, and I assume from the dearth of updates, now unsupported.
  • Terrific becomes even more useful

    This app is both a terrific Japanese dictionary and a tool for helping one learn Japanese. You can do almost anything you'd want to do with Japanese, from looking up words, studying Kanji, studying example sentences, etc. This version adds a Safari extension which makes it even more useful - you can now translate Japanese web pages directly from Safari.
  • Midori-incomparable!

    Midori is the very best kanji and Japanese dictionary I have found anywhere. I have deleted all my other kanji dictionaries. I don't even use my paper dictionaries anymore. I have been studying Japanese for 40 years (sad, I know...), and I have never used anything better. I have been waiting for this technology all my adult life. For some more hyperboles... This app is the best app I own on my iPad and iPhone. . The iPad was designed for solving the problem of looking up kanji. It works smoothly; I have never experienced any glitches. Aesthetically, it is a beautiful app. With a tap, you can view the kanji drawn, stroke by beautiful stroke - teaching you how to write the kanji. Congratulations to the developers. Thank you. Update: more on amazing service As always the developer is of such great help. He always respond so quickly and his directions are clear and easy to follow. Thank you again for a great product. I recommend Midori to all my colleagues. June 2014 - Breathtaking! Another amazing update! Now I can read Safari in Japanese, tap the up button and ask for Furigana to be place on the kanji and/or choose Midori to translate and then all of the article is automatically transferred over to my Midori app to be translated! (Was that completely incomprehensible? Midori will explain this new service step by step.) I don't know how the other apps can compare. This is the most amazing app. It is hands down the best I app I have for ANYTHING!

  • Almost perfect

    This app is really amazing. The multiple ways to search (romaji, hiragana, or kanji radicals, is incredibly convenient. I use it almost every day, primarily for inputting new words to the bookmark/flash card section. The only problem I have is not about content, only usability. The flash cards only allow you to see the Japanese first, instead of offering English first as well. If there was the option to use either Japanese or English first, I feel like the language-learning benefit would be improved. Again, despite my tiny usability issue, overall this app is incredibly useful, and anyone interested in learning Japanese will definitely benefit from it!
  • I use this app everyday!

    As an English speaker living in Japan for the past year and a half, I have found this app extremely helpful. I bought it when I had zero Japanese ability and now am studying for my n2 exam. I utilize almost all the functions of this app daily from studying vocabulary to looking up words I don't understand in daily life. I love that I can save words in my own lists for later study. The new updates including the additional "common" label for words as well as being able to write any stroke order have made this app even more convenient. When learning new vocabulary, I love that most words have multiple example sentences. Adding sentences to more words can make this excellent app even more outstanding. I think this app is worth every ¥$€£. Thank you!
