App Reviews

  • The best Japanese dictionary app out there.

    By Oda79
    I feel like I need. to write another review for Midori. I’ve been using it for over 4yrs now and it has never disappointed. There are number of reasons I like it not the least of which is because I can look up words without clearing the search menu and it still separates and displays all the results. I also own another popular Japanese dictionary app “Japanese”, which I think it good, but I always go to Midori when doing some serous translations and tough Japanese reading. This app is definitely a must for serious Japanese learners!!! I’m not an employee for Midori, but I think you should invest in this app!
  • Awesome App, happy they still update

    By db.1
    I have had this app for over 8 years and is always my go to. While there had not been any “crazy new look” or “ special new pink elephant “ type updates, the app/dictionary keeps working well and I haven’t been charged for an update or forced into some useless subscription schemes so 5 stars from me.
  • This app is fantastic

    By Cheunga22
    Not only the best Japanese dictionary, but the best of any foreign language dictionary that I’ve found. UI is clean and easy to navigate. The flash card system is fantastic for learning vocabulary and the adaptive recall system is the perfect amount of functionality without bombarding you with endless options that you need to configure. Using the flash card system I was able to learn almost 1000 words in about a month, by simply reviewing the recommended cards for each day. Only thing that’s lacking - please make an equivalent app for Chinese! :)
  • Super useful for Nihongo reference

    By Nathan Fiedler
    This app is simply amazing. It not only has vocabulary but also many Kanji and their components. Everything is very clear. The examples are very helpful, too. I love that I can scribble something and get the Kanji that I'm after. I use this app every day.
  • Midori app

    Have been using for 3 years. OUTSTANDING app. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
  • 5 STARS!!

    By SweetEphanie
    I highly recommend this app. It is extremely convenient and easy to use. I have no complaints. It is worth every single penny. It's good for vocabulary and grammar. Some of the aspects I really like are it's example sentences on a majority of words, flash cards, organization of words based on JLPT level, and translation function. The translation function won't translate directly into sentences, but it will translate individual words and allow you to look at the dictionary entry.
  • iPhone Only? :(

    By rlquinn1980
    An otherwise fantastic app for English-speaking learners of Japanese, Midori has wonderful options for searching and learning Japanese, even in spite of a few "Japanglish" example sentences... at least for the iPhone. The iPad version of this app is outdated, and I assume from the dearth of updates, now unsupported.
  • Terrific becomes even more useful

    By Wennefer
    This app is both a terrific Japanese dictionary and a tool for helping one learn Japanese. You can do almost anything you'd want to do with Japanese, from looking up words, studying Kanji, studying example sentences, etc. This version adds a Safari extension which makes it even more useful - you can now translate Japanese web pages directly from Safari.
  • Midori-incomparable!

    By mbfitzmahan
    Midori is the very best kanji and Japanese dictionary I have found anywhere. I have deleted all my other kanji dictionaries. I don't even use my paper dictionaries anymore. I have been studying Japanese for 40 years (sad, I know...), and I have never used anything better. I have been waiting for this technology all my adult life. For some more hyperboles... This app is the best app I own on my iPad and iPhone. . The iPad was designed for solving the problem of looking up kanji. It works smoothly; I have never experienced any glitches. Aesthetically, it is a beautiful app. With a tap, you can view the kanji drawn, stroke by beautiful stroke - teaching you how to write the kanji. Congratulations to the developers. Thank you. Update: more on amazing service As always the developer is of such great help. He always respond so quickly and his directions are clear and easy to follow. Thank you again for a great product. I recommend Midori to all my colleagues. June 2014 - Breathtaking! Another amazing update! Now I can read Safari in Japanese, tap the up button and ask for Furigana to be place on the kanji and/or choose Midori to translate and then all of the article is automatically transferred over to my Midori app to be translated! (Was that completely incomprehensible? Midori will explain this new service step by step.) I don't know how the other apps can compare. This is the most amazing app. It is hands down the best I app I have for ANYTHING!
