Description of imiwa?

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.

Reviews of imiwa?

  • I wish I could rate 6 stars

    I’ve been using this app for 10 years now and it has always been an invaluable asset. The interface is clean and intuitive, I’ve never encountered any bugs, and it has every feature I’ve ever needed.
  • So much fun!

    I’ve been using this app since I started taking Japanese classes 5 years ago. I love how each word comes with example sentences and different readings! I used to read the example sentences and guess the translations as a fun way to learn new words. Also in the search bar it predicts other combinations using that particular kanji, including old sayings and metaphorical phrases. It’s been a solid tool in my language learning and I highly recommend to anyone who’s learning Japanese!
  • Extremely helpful

    For a Japanese dictionary this app is probably the most helpful I have encountered. I especially like that it can guide you through the stroke order of Kanji. If you’re learning Japanese this is definitely a great app to have in the back pocket!
