paulw,

Of course you are included. Everybody is. "for the rest of us" is a play on a phrase that Apple used to use a lot. I use the phrase in reference to Jisho's simplicity and ease-of-use.

I've been using this for quite a while ago, and JUST realized I haven't commented on it here.

It's a great application. Quick searches with varieties of strengths (they come in really handy), multiple meanings for each word, and several languages, all for a decent price. It's been a lifesaver in my Japanese-learning, especially as it has MANY more entries than the largest dictionary I've found, and can search within words, in case you misspelled something (there's one use for strengths).
It also contains the Kanji used in each word, the pronunciation of the word, and a bit of information (type of verb/grammar).

Easily worth the $15, and my purchase even lasted from the 1.x to 2.x switch, unlike many companies.
