Web Search is an insanely powerful tool in SABU.  With SABU, we want user to focus on learning rather than switching between Apps to find out the meaning.   Web search is tightly integrated to SABU.  NO TYPING is required.  All search would be at most two clicks away.

Wiki:

Sometimes, you can’t get the meaning because it’s more related to Japanese culture.  Then Japanese wiki is best tool to learn it in the native way.  e.g. for the “MAIN BANK” word, check out the main bank system and how it works in Japan.

For any words not found in dictionary, they would be automatically searched in Japanese wiki.
