Great iPhone Software

Tuesday, August 26th, 2008

I recently bought an extremely useful and well-built application for the iPhone called the Wisdom English-Japanese/Japanese-English Dictionary. A very cool company called Monokakido (with an interesting etymology for those who read Japanese) has made a work of art. The Sanseido dictionary is excellent, and so is the presentation on the iPhone/iPod. It has that perhaps uniquely Japanese blend of being both functionally succinct and visually elegant.

Very, very, nice.

4M iPhones in 200 days
