Started as a project at a university. The Japanese to English is the specialty of the dictionary.
The best smartphone tools for learning Japanese are probably:
A dictionary application which downloads word definitions from& edrdg.org, an incredible library of dictionaries.
- Kanji Recognizer
Can be used to draw figure out the readings of unknown Kanji.
Both of these applications can be used without an internet connection, so they are particularly useful for students going JYA who don't want to buy Denshi Jisho.
Midori (Japanese Dictionary)
Offers offline dictionaries, and can be used for lots of specialty terms like Kanji readings within names.
