    It does a great job of translating text, but it has a hard time with words that are considered slang.
  • Good app, new bug

    I love this dictionary, but the latest update as of July 10 has the handwriting input crashing the app every time I attempt to use it (iPhone 6S with iOS 11.4).
  • Absolutely amazing for OCR and playing games

    I use this to look up kanji I’m unfamiliar with when playing video games. It is insanely useful.

    The problems I've had with this app have been fixed! Really helpful
  • Often fails to recognize kanji

    By Onemorebit
    Printed kanji with serifs, printed kanji with thick lines, and vertically printed kanji consistently confuse Yomiwa in camera or photo reading mode, even with hi-res images. I end up not using the application in between updates as it doesn't perform as advertised. With each update I try again but so far these issues are still unresolved.
  • Very satisfied

    I don’t even know what to say. This app is so much faster and compete than the already great Google Translate app. I don’t know how I ever lived without it! <3
