Been learning Japanese for quite some time now, and I kind of decided to get me a denshi jisho. My query is, has anyone ordered from denshi-jisho.com? I'd like to know about what you think or what you've experience from the online store.
I decided to get a denshi jisho, well, because I believe that it could help me more with my studies, easy word look-up, and in my location, I'm don't always have internet.
YobRivera san, Konnichiwa. I have been using denshi jisho for many years. Casio is a famous Japanese maker for denshi jisho. Online dictionary is convenient however, denshi jisho have many examples and explain how to use words. One denshi jisho has many functions (japanese-Englsih, japanese-japanese, idioms, proverbs, business Japanese, conversational Japanese, survival Japanese and so on) so I think it’t more convenient than online dictionaries.

What are the added functionalities compared to free programs like zkanji on windows, JED on android and whatever mac users have? I am only interested in reading so I wonder whether I would benefit from getting one.
Zkanji can do pronunciation plus/or radicals plus/or stroke count, will recognize and identify different conjugations, 210 000 words, example sentences and has many other options though the former are what I always use.
Is the kanji drawing function really useful on these dictionaries? That's one feature I never use on zkanji because it would mean drawing using the mouse so I am curious to know the answer.
