What is WaniDoku?
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:
