Ever worry that you are forgetting all your burned kanji and vocabulary? Do you find yourself not reading as much Japanese as you’d like?
This app will display a notification containing a context sentence from one of your burned (or passed) vocabulary. You read it then you press translate to see if you were right. Right or wrong, the app will display another notification with a random sentence at a configurable interval.
Note that timing of notifications are not exact due to battery saving reasons in Android.
Also note that if you manually load more notifications, it takes a few second because it needs to fetch the sentence from WaniKani each time you press the button.
The idea is that you pick up your phone and just “find” a sentence waiting for you. Not that you actively sit and read a bunch of sentences - though you absolutely can do that too.
It’s a quite simple app intended to do a very simple task. Some screenshots to illustrate better:
You know they’re the same ones provided by WK, right?
I do agree that this is a great use of the context sentences. I hardly look at them during lessons, and how many people actually go back to item pages to look up old context sentences? This way they get a bit more use, for all the effort that’s gone into writing them.
Thanks for the app. Unfortunately it doesn’t seem to work for me, after entering my API key (it greets me my user name after entering it so I assume it’s valid) I get Failed to sync with WaniKani. Check your api key: Non-null value 'dataUpdatedAt' (JSON name 'data_updated_at') was null at $.data_updated_at when clicking on Test notification. I guess the You need to be a WaniKani subscriber to use this app. also applies when you’re still level 1?
