    Ok...It has been quite some time I'm searching for a native japanese dictionary on the app store but I still can't find any...I can see many English <-> Japanese TRANSLATION dictionary, but what I want is a DEFINITION dictionary all in Japanese for the native japanese speaker...I mean no translation....just type in japanese word and it gives you japanese definition...no english words and stuff...

    Is there such an app on the app store? Could you give me the name please?

    Thank You,

    Hi there i'm a newbie in learning Japanese and I use "Japanese" available on the Appstore... I think it's very good... at least for me because i'm not a native Japanese speaker...

    Japanese is an app for english<-> japanese translation...

    I just said I did NOT want a translation app....I just want a native japanese dictionary...NO TRANSLATION!!! ALL JAPANESE DEFINITIONS...is this so hard to understand?

    For those who STILL don't get it, take this as an example: You know these Oxford English dictionaries where you can flip the pages and find a word and right below it you will find an english definition? Well imagine that dictionary, but all writen in Japanese! Simple huh?

    So...does such an app exist after all?

    try Kotoba! if you type the word say. Sukiyaki.. it will give u info on what the word means in many languages.. however it takes a while for the search to load

    hmmm....I will try it...but from the description I doubt it will be what I want....but I did find an app that is a bit closer from what I want....its the Wisdom English/Japanese dictionary.....seems to be made for the native speaker....

    any other ideas?

    I bet if you search the reference category a bit, you'll find one.
