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.

User friendly I use this as a personal dictionary and translation. Very useful. Had no problems on my note3 and previous phone galaxy 2 so It's definitely worth to install.
