Nihongo - Japanese Dictionary adds support for handwriting input

Japanese dictionary and study app Nihongo has just released an update with a major new feature that has been requested by many users - handwriting input.

Based on machine-learning, Nihongo's handwriting input is fast and accurate, and supports writing kanji, hiragana, and katakana. It does not depend on the user having correct stroke order when writing kanji, making it ideal for learners.
