Nice app Very good app, one thing that is missing is the 'stroke order' option from the kanji screen. This option exists in 'Kanji Recognizer', but because of that i have to switch from one app to another to have the stroke order. Would be nice to have the stroke order button available in WWWJDIC, if you purchased the premium version of Kanji Recognizer.
