Japanese dictionary for Android

By NDC Solution Free

Developer's Description

JDict is a Japanese-English offline dictionary featuring over 160000 entries, over 10000 kanji and almost 60000 example sentences.

It is largely inspired by well-known "[Imi_wa?]" dictionary for [i_O_S] platform both functionally and visually.

Current features:

- works offline

- shows kana/romaji as you type

- supports wildcards in vocabulary

- recent words, examples and kanji

- romaji mode in search

- kanji search is divided by ON/KUN readings, Nanori and meaning results

- very fast example search

- extract words from sentences feature

- kanji stroke order animations

- furigana is matched everywhere with my own algorithm (still can have some bugs though)

- in component view, you can see all kanji with given component ordered by JLPT level and word commonness

- in kanji view, you can see all compounds with given kanji ordered like above

- search kanji by components (design inspired by "Japanese" dictionary)

- browse kanji by JLPT and School Grades

- notes

- lists (works like favorites but with folders/sub-folders)

- vocabulary search recognizes some basic grammar when typing

- in word detail view examples are categorized by word meaning if such a connection exists

As you can see features are mostly basic for now.

The database file is quite big (~230MB). The reason for that is that it contains a lot of example sentences data and needs a lot of indexes to run smooth.

My plans:

- make the application more user-friendly (list search)

- learn vocabulary feature (using lists)

- exporting lists to Anki

- external links in vocabulary

- kanji handwriting recognition

- Shiratori game

- improve extract words algorithm (I have some ideas using the statistical approach to make it run faster)
