Jiten [Online] is a Japanese dictionary based on JMDict/Kanjidic

This app essentially provides the same functionality as opening the website in a web browser — but with some small advantages (like long press for tooltips).

There is also a completely offline version — named simply "Jiten Japanese Dictionary" — which requires more storage space (and could be slower depending on your device and internet connection). You can install both at the same time if you want.


JMDict multilingual japanese dictionary
• kanji, readings (romaji optional), meanings & more
• meanings in english, dutch, german, french and/or spanish
• pitch accent (from Wadoku)
• browse by frequency/jlpt

Kanji dictionary
