Car Freire provides a variety of useful additional information--many thanks! I confess I continue to carry around the little Sharp denshi jisho I purchased 20+ years ago and have not downloaded or purchased CD-Rom dictionaries. I see there are many options to consider.
(My apologies if this email ends up being a duplicate--I tried responding to the list the other day but I think it went to the wrong address so I'm using the web interface now instead.)
Two options, neither of which are precisely what you're looking for in that neither offers a scan-and-lookup function. Still, both are quite useful so I bring them up just the same for the list's archives--if they don't help you, then someone might benefit from reading this info now or down the road.
I agree with Molly. Daijirin was the best kanwa jiten I could find for iphone. I tried and paid for some others, which weren't as good. The Daijirin has a good enough kanwa jiten for general use. But it is certainly no comparison to anything like the Morohashi. Pleco, on the other hand, has the Hanyu Da Cidian as an optional extra (55 euro). The Hanyu Da Cidian is at least as comprehensive as Morohashi and is also fully electronically searchable - so overall it is certainly much better! So... Chinese digital resources win out yet again!
I am a former iPhone user who really misses Daijirin, which has great handwriting recognition input, although you can also type in your word. It is $22 (in the US) and was well worth it.
You can find the Daijirin app at https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/%E5%A4%A7%E8%BE%9E%E6%9E%97/id299029654?...
