Review by JCAndaluz

This is a great app! - The most useful feauture that this app can offer is that it allows you to save words and phrases in it. You can also search in 4 other languages. I simply love it!

Review by Bolí

Terrible for anyone advanced in Japanese - If you are just learning Japanese, I'm sure this dictionary will be good for you. However, it offers only basic Japanese and when you search a word, several come up. Any specialized word you want to use won't show up. I typed in "medical" and I got "health." Not the same thing. I knew immediately I wasted $20.

Review by Sarah&Mudpie

Android vs. Mac. version - If you are using the android version of Jisho, you will HATE this app. The Android version is super useful, this app for mac is definetly not worth the $20--not even worth $2.00. If you are already fluent in Japanese, it could be useful, but not for an English to Japanese learner. I have been studying for three years, tried a lot off apps, bought a Macbook pro, and just about cried at the uselessness of this app. Bad, Bad, Bad. But the andoid version has saved my sorry Japanese studing soul.....you will be glad you got it. And its free. Sarah
