@Apo: I do not have the resources for that. Note: the dictionaries are split into small parts.Once done with one, JED won't try to download it again!

Very useful, updates would be nice, though.

Apo (***)
Make dictionary files available online Required data files should be made available online for direct download and transfer to sd card. Attempts to download and install through the phone keep failing/get interrupted.

Great app! But it would be flawless if the example sentences had furigana. Please add this feature (^з^)-☆

Vivienne (****)
Very useful! :3

Charles (*****)
Simply put great everything I need for class

Sverre H. (*****)
How to *cough* clear the search history?

Tomo (****)
Verb conjugation and lexical cat. a big +. E-to-J search seems weak ("sea" did not give "うみ").J-to-E solid. Needs furigana in ex. sentences.

Amazing app! Just as good as Apple's Kotoba!
