More and more, I'm finding the Aedict Android app extremely useful, after years of depending primarily on my old trustworthy Casio Ex-word electronic dictionary. When I was using an iPad, I found the WishoTouch app to be a rough equivalent, even slightly more useful because of its audio sentence examples and Kanji stroke order animations, but since Aedict added audio, and despite lacking the animation (it does diagram stroke order though), it is finally coming close to an all purpose replacement for my Ex-word.
On Android, I use JED. It's free and has sample sentences as well as verb forms. It will show you the kanji with stroke by stroke animations. You have to long-press on the kanji to get the option "show diagram." (I just figured that out today.)
