Great kanji lookup up Great app with a lot of info on individual kanji, on and kun reading, stroke order, radical, etc. The only thing I can see that could use improvement is compound look up. It is pretty much a disorganized jumble. Fortunately it uses the same numbing system as my dictionary so I can cross reference pretty easily.
