Frequently asked questions

Why are there ads on JapanDict?

Advertising helps to pay the bills of the server and the infrastructure hosting JapanDict. Even though no one likes them, we believe it's the best way to cover these costs. We try to keep them at minimum and to maintain the site as clean as possible.

Is there an app for Android/iOS?

We'd love to have an application for Android and iOS, but we're a very small team, and we only work in our spare time. Creating an application is a lot of effort, so we've decided to focus on the website only and try to make it as good as possible.

Even if it's not the same, it's possible to create a shortcut in your device home screen and JapanDict will open as if it were an application. Just follow the instructions here:
