Anyone With An IOS Device Test the New Bookwalker Version with a Japanese Novel?

    So Bookwalker has a new update on iPad / IOS that allows for you to translate lines from Japanese texts with the Dictionary function.

    What I'm wondering is, is this translation limited to single words only, or can you translate whole lines?

    This'd be extremely helpful for me if the latter. As it is now, I have to take a picture, then pop that into Google Translate app to translate lines.

    I'm guessing this will still be limited to single words, but hey, I can dream. T.T

    I just tried it, and you first have to download the Japanese-English dictionary on the app, but then unfortunately it only works for single characters or small groups/phrases. If you try to translate any more it just says no results :/

    Alright, the dream is dead. But maybe they'll think about adding that function someday.

    I'll continue my dumb Google Translate method.
