Yomiwa Japanese Translator user reviews :

Wonderful! Thank you so much! It is true you need to pay for the camera feature, but even if you just use the writing part it is brilliant and so useful! Some of my study books are entirely in japanese and many kanjis don’t have furigana. I looked a lot for this kind of app… Now I just write in it what I see and it lets me know the meaning of the word and of each kanji. Not only that, but it also offers stroke order, and more words with each kanji as well as saying for which JLPT it is used. Thank you very much!! It really makes a difference

This is the absolute best dictionary app I’ve ever used. It already handles finger drawing and searching, but the small priced upgrade gives a very, very accurate screen and camera reader. Can’t recommend it enough
