  • 👌

    By taylert123
    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

    By alaniwahashi
    Experience so far with Yomiwa has been great: Very affordable (for its capability) Love the camera feature Offline capability makes it very travel friendly Very happy with this app!
  • An indispensable translation and study tool

    By toromei
    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
  • The perfect app

    By SuchiiruRein
    I got this app in order to play through FF7 in Japanese and its camera works perfectly for it. There are occasions with other things where it won’t work, but writing out the kanji works just as good as long as you know strike order. The dictionary is fantastic and works both ways perfectly. They recently added all conjugations for verbs and it’s so helpful. This is a must have app for both students and tourists visiting japan.
  • Awesome app!!!

    By Qwerty2113
    Great support!! Just need flashcards and the app would be perfect!!
  • Waste

    By Dark Dragooon
    The most huge waste of money in App Store ever!!! Back to google translate.
  • INDISPENSABLE for reading manga. An absolute MUST.

    By Leo of BORG
    I read the earlier review that Yomiwa “chokes” on manga: maybe a year or two ago I *might* have agreed, but now? Yomiwa parses 90% of whatever Kanji I throw at it, either in horizontal or vertical runs. On top of that, the Dev added the “Copy to Yomiwa” sharesheet feature which works very well with manga readers like Chunky. Your page or panel appears almost instantly in Yomiwa, then you swipe back to the manga you’re reading. It’s great. If you run into reading errors, take a screenshot and SEND IT TO THE DEVELOPER. They are very responsive!
  • Great app

    By LolooKyotoPool
    Very good app for Japanese learners and travelers, it has all the features you want for a dictionary + some amazing character recognition. The recognition in live mode can be unstable, but works great on still pictures. I also love the ability to copy the recognized text and to analyze it to get the furiganas, it makes reading of Japanese books much easier. It's nice to see that the app is being continuously improved and I'm looking forward to future updates! ありがとうございます!
