Kanji stroke and other things Kanji stroke is incorrect: It seems the kanji stroke viewer is using the printed forms of kanji and not the written forms. For example, 冷 is shown as its printed form and also includes an initial downward stroke of the bottom portion of にすい, which is not done in regular writing and is a bit exaggerated even in a calligraphy setting. Many taps required to navigate: Having to use the context menu to open kanji detail or add word to favorites is too much work when having buttons on the word page itself would suffice. Common words: There's seemingly no way of knowing if a word is used commonly or not. The general dictionary contains words which are uncommon but are not labeled as such in the results.
