I’m looking for a Japanese-English dictionary app for Android which provides a quiz/flashcard feature for reviewing the words I’ve been looking up. Any good suggestions out there?
Preferably it would be in the same app, but I would also consider dictionary apps that seamlessly allows export to an Anki deck, for instance. I would be willing to pay for a nice experience, so non-free app suggestions are also welcome.
I know that I could just build an Anki deck myself, but I would much rather spend my time on further reading than creating/editing Anki cards.
So far I’m just using Jsho, which is okay, but does not have any kind of SRS/quiz features.
There is a browser extension called Yomichan (and another one whose name I forgot - Rikaikun?) that lets you create Anki cards with one click from Jisho. Sounds like kinda exactly what you were not looking for
Anyways, I don’t use them but you can find further information if you search these forums.
Yeah they’re all here
But aren’t they looking for an Android app?
Oh sorry, forgot to mention: That would be Anki for Android then, as they were planning to use Anki anyways.
Or so I think
Looking at the list of software we have there it actually looks like Takoboto | Download offline apps might be what they’re looking for. As @sinkiepwnsinkie has just mentioned below.
I use Takoboto on the phone and it has an export to Anki function which comes in quite handy. You can create a list in the application, put words into the list and then export the list to Anki
Oh, now I get it, they are doing the lookups on the phone and want to create the list from that
(I use Jisho only on desktop so that put me on a tangent… Sorry for the confusion!)
Thank you, I think either Takoboto or Akebi (found in The Ultimate Additional Japanese Resources List) might actually fit the bill!
I’ll give those a go
It sounds like maybe you’ve found something else, but Jsho does itself export to anki, should you want that. (I don’t know if it can be done as a list or only just one at a time, as I do it as a word comes up.)
+1 for Takoboto! I use it constantly for everything and have populated some thousands of anki cards that way.
I also find that its search algorithm is more forgiving than Jisho’s, which is great when there’s sentences where I’m not 100% sure on the conjugation or word divisions.
The export is easy, it just generates a big csv file of all your word lists.
Just wanted to follow up in case it’s useful to others.
Akebi is definitely my choice so far. Not only does it have a flashcard feature in-app, but also has seamless export to AnkiDroid. The regular dictionary experience is also nice.
