This is just a front end for a dictionary web site. To be able to use this app you have to be online. There is no offline dictionary to download. There are regular search, exact search, and romaji search. Unless enabled first by ticking the option, searching by romanized Japanese produces unpredictable results.
User interface different from usual offline dictionary app, and needs some time to get used to.
At the time of this writing (April.2020), ver. 2.4.2 has not been updated since June 2018. However, the online dictionary data should be regularly updated.
This app is probably much more useful to advanced Japanese learners who frequently stumble upon "probably know the meaning of this compound kanji", but do not know exactly how to read it. Offline free dictionary apps such as Sumatora or Nani? should be good enough for casual or occasional users.
Handwriting recognition needs separate paid app (Kanji Recognizer). This can be considered as a cheap one-time investment, because the recognition is pretty accurate.
