The description of Chishiki

This application is a Japanese language learning tool for people who know English.
One can search for an item in the dictionary in kanji, hiragana, katakana, or English by pressing the search icon in the action bar. One can also see search suggestions while typing in data in the search dialog in the action bar. The detailed information page describes more information about the selected dictionary entry. The definitions are given in English only. This application also does not offer ro-maji at the moment so you must understand hiragana and katakana to use this application.

Why you should use this app instead of others:
1. Search in Action Bar
2. Search Suggestions
3. Tablet-optimized layout
4. Detailed information page with almost exact wordings from the original dictionary file.
6. No Internet required besides downloading the application.
7. Material design!

This application is labeled as Medium maturity because this dictionary, like others, has some definitions that are x-rated and contain some hate speech.

I removed many details from the app in the current version due to some of it being rather unnecessary and difficult to design such as kanji priority, kana priority, field information, misc info, wasei, etc.. Currently only displaying kanji (if exists), kana, definitions(s), and parts of speech.

Mini-privacy notice:

No personal data, including queries, is ever transmitted to any server.


I really started this app because I wanted to learn Android development more. I also adore some other Japanese language learning tools and wanted to make something my own. I also wanted to make something new as many other applications of the same genre did not have some newer features.
