I wanted to let you know about an app I built. Benkyou helps you study WaniKani via tinder-like swipe flashcards. You can check it out here: https://benkyou.cards/
Originally I built this because my friends and I needed to cram for the JLPT, and we wanted to study vocabulary for levels we hadn’t reached. I finally cleaned it up and released it
With this app you can:
- study Hiragana and Katakana
- study your recently unlocked/critical WaniKani items
- study levels you haven’t reached
- study items in groups of 5, 10 or 20.
And my favorite feature, when you finish studying a set of cards, you can study just the ones that you got wrong. This way you can quickly narrow down your focus to the difficult items.
I’ve found it very helpful to focus on critical items, and the radicals and kanji for the next level. It’s made my reviews go much smoother.
If you want to access the WaniKani features, you need a full subscription and a v1 API key.
This app does not do your reviews for you. It’ll help you prepare for you reviews
Here’s a small demo
I would appreciate your feedback, either here or by email (email@example.com), or tweet at me @groundcontrol.
