The latest update for Handy Japanese (1.4) has now been submitted to the marketplace. It brings with it a few new features and performance enhancements.

  • Changed style of radical and stroke selectors to make them easier to use.
  • Enable the use of the back button to move backwards through screens.
  • Ability to search the database with less complex search algorithm (faster). The older method is now optional, see "Extended Search" in the options menu.
  • Fixed issue where clicking Kanji on the second line of textblocks didn't properly open the associated kanji entry.
  • Improved search performance.

Handy Japanese: Windows Mobile

Handy Japanese for Windows Mobile is now available in all English-Speaking regions, after a trial launch in the USA. A minor bug that caused the application to not display all radicals for the Kanji lookup has been corrected for the full launch

Unless I get a tonne of requests I'm not planning on making the Windows Mobile version available in other languages but the Windows Phone 7 version is already localized for Japanese so as soon as Microsoft chooses to launch in Japan I'm ready.
