    Does anyone know if iOS systems have a feature like the IME pad on Windows machines? I’ve been using a Mac recently and its a real pain not being able to write the kanji to the words I can’t read yet in 鉄道員 (ぽっぽや)

    Can’t you download google IME for iOS? I know it sucks at kanji recognition, but it is much better than nothing.

    What’s IME pad, and is it different to the international keyboard that you can install via the Settings menu?

    By IME pad, he means the tool you can use to draw kanji by hand and then convert it to text.

    Ah. Suspected it might have been something like that. I normally just use search-by-radical in Imiwa…

    Which takes much longer if you know the stroke orders of kanji.

    Search by radical on any dictionary website/software is way too slow and inefficient. I only search by radical as a last resort if the Chinese writing recognition on my Ipod can’t pick up the kanji at all.

    Also I solved my own problem. Thanks for helping guys.

    For the benefit of others in your position, missingno, what was your solution?

    I’m well aware of the fact that search-by-radical is slow. However, in the absence of anything better than “um… Google [IME] it… I guess?” it works well enough.

    I am putting up with the writing recognition that comes with Chinese keyboards though it seems to be doing better than my chinese keyboard on my ipod

    Bump.

    With the most recent update, Google Translate on the iPad now has handwriting input. Yay. =)

    Midori has always had handwriting recognition.
