Okay, so I’ve been trying to use jp-jp dictionaries more lately, because I think it’s at least good to try to understand a native explanation before looking up an Engish translation.
When it comes to web pages, there are a few that I think are pretty good; https://kotobank.jp/ and https://www.sanseido.biz/User/Dic/Index.aspx, for instance are both very useful. Then there’s https://ejje.weblio.jp and https://dictionary.goo.ne.jp as well.
What I’m trying to say is that there’s hardly a shortage of good jp-jp resources if you’re willing to use a connected web browser.
However, looking for Android apps that do the same isn’t as easy. There are apps for some of the above, Kotobank for instance, but they aren’t offline. There’s a bunch of offline apps based on JEDICT, but that’s jp-eng obviously.
Good 'ol polar bear pal @crihak recommended me the app version of Sanseido’s concise dictionary I linked above, and it does seem pretty decent. I also noticed that the “full” Sanseido dictionary is also available in app form for around 20 euros, which isn’t that bad.
But before I take a plunge and buy a shiny dictionary, I’d like to hear the thoughts of some other people over here. Have you used any jp-jp apps, and how did you like them? Any that you would recommend, or recommend against?
Personally I have no iOS devices, so I’m only interested in Android apps (preferrably the kind that you can purchase from the Swedish Google Play store), but if you have suggestions for other users for iOS apps or something else then feel free to share that as well! It’s fine if they cost money, as long as they’re super duper special awesome good, of course.
