User reviews of Aedict Japanese Dictionary
The most useful and comprehensive dictionary / kanji / vocab lookup tool I have ever encountered - it's brilliant, and plays a significant role in my Kanji and Japanese language learning activities. Works fine on the Evo 3D (Android 2.3.4), on Desire (Android 2.2) some java exceptions are encountered on single kanji search. Nevertheless, brilliant app, a must-have for anyone learning the Japanese language. This is definately a 5 star app !

Really useful - Motorola DEFY (Eclair)

this is the best japanese dictionary i have found for android, but there are a few annoying bugs. firstly, and most importantly, when you are looking at an entry, for example する, the app only provides examples with the verb in it's DICTIONARY FORM. so no examples with して、した、している、whatever. this is a huge bummer because often you can't find any practical examples for a word, unless you go back to the homescreen, type in the conjugation you're looking for, and check 'search in examples.' the other annoying thing is that there is no dedicated button or menu item to go back to the home screen, where you are able to set your search parameters. sometimes i have to reboot the app just to get back to the home screen. apart from these two things, everything else is great. hope we can see these fixed in the future! がんばってね~

LIKED IT!

All the good of the Edict dictionary right in your pocket. The interface works nicely and the extras, such as the notebook, are useful. I do wish there was a way to always get right back to the main search screen. Also you can't make the keyboard default to Japanese input in the Japanese search dialog, something that would be very useful. Adding a few more specialized dictionaries (like the science dictionary) as optional installs would be nice too.

Not practical- Avoid it. This dictionary is not practical for everyday use in Japan. For example: I search the word 'caress', but no match for the common verb 撫でる. I found out I must type 'to caress' for the match to come up. Totally ridiculous. Another example- I search 'eat', and the most common word 食べる shows way down 10th on the list. Stupid. Also, there's no common word search filter, no kanji search, no bookmarking, and basically no user options. Don't waste your time. JSHO dictionary app is much, much better. Check it out.

I use it all the time It really helps me when I'm practicing my Japanese if there is a word in a sentence that I don't know, I can look it up super easy.

It says the edict is just 20mb, but it's still downloading at 25+ right now. /Scratches head

Best Dictionary App! I've tried so many Japanese to English apps and vice versa. So far, this is the best. The other ones are confusing and very busy. This one gets straight to the point when you look up a word. Love it!
