Good start to clean-looking program Simple and clean layout, which makes it easy to use from the beginning. Nice touch to include a few Aozora books so the user can get started right away. Developments that I would need in order to use the program instead of other Japanese readers I currently use: 1) a way to share highlighted words with other programs--some of the words aren't in the dictionary, so if I can share them with EBPocket, I can find the definitions. 2) the option to leave the dictionary open at the bottom of the screen while still being able to scroll the book text--I don't like having to click back to the book every time, I'm finished looking up the word. (As user progresses in Japanese, the current setting would be fine as it encourages the user to rely a bit less on the dict and more on their memory.)

Good It crashes a lot but it's the best reading utility for Japanese on Mobil services. Therefore I love it.

Exellent The best japanese reader app on the market. The only way this ciuld ne better is with epub and mobi support. Just convert your books with calibre to text.

I like it Nice app. A couple other features would make it an amazing app though. For example: The ability to download books from Aozora straight to the app, an option for Furigana above kanji, bookmarks, a nicer UI for your books, and a lock option for the touch dictionary.
