Have a textbook or grammar book that you find particularly helpful? What about a learning tip to share with others?

I was wondering if any of our members who have an Iphone/Itouch have used this application Japanese. If you have I would like to hear what you think of it , especially if you have or have had in the past a regular Denshi Jisho. Basically its an electronic dictionary, with a kanji dictionary, a flash card system and a few other neat little features.
How sweet life would be if korean in origin were playstation, anime and Wii

The dictionaries it uses seem familiar.. :wink:

Another to look at is http://sazanamisoftware.com/wishotouch/ and I know a third iPhone app is about to arrive.

I know this is a bit old, but I do have this program and its great. You can search kanji by stroke order and radical, among other things. The thing that got me was that its got lessons to help with the jlpt 1-4 and whats REALLY cool is the example sentences. You can click words in the sentences and it will define it for you and explain the kanji used in the word.

totally awesome program to compliment any program set. I'll also suggest kotoba, but, im not sure if "Japanese" will supersede that suggestion as I just found and got it tonight.

i picked up iEijiro, Kotoba, JDict, and Japanese.
The last 3 might've been a waste.
I was surprised that Kenkyuusha's was so friggin expensive.
i think it was like 80 around Christmas time and it's 109.99 right now.
outrageous.

EDIT: Even the Genius dictionary starts at 40 something dollars and runs up to 109.99.
Not sure if this link has both dictionaries: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/id337265724?mt=8
This one may have both as well: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/id316543513?mt=8
