This is the homepage of the Windows Phone 8 port of JiShop, a Japanese-English kanji and compound word dictionary.

Last release:   April 10, 2014   version 1.60
      (wildcarded search, user-defined notes, etc.)

JiShop is a shareware product - for the first 30 days, it's fully functional, then the database becomes limited to the 1006 characters from the "Gakushū kanji" list. To remove the limitation, please purchase a permanent license.

JiShop requires Windows Phone 8. There will not be a version for Windows Phone 7.x; this has to do with Microsoft's policy of not allowing native code on the latter.
