I’m currently working on an iOS native self study application that will be ready for beta testing soon. Everyone learns differently, and sometimes I want to keep studying even after I have completed my reviews or lessons. I wanted reach out to you all and gauge the level of interest in an app like this. I also wanted to ask everyone what features they would like to see most.
The app currently allows you to select from various “decks”. There are quick access deck links for the most common use cases.
By Level - current level, previous level, or custom selection
By SRS Distribution - Apprentice, Guru, or a custom selection
By Percent Correct - w/ adjustable threshold
When building this, I also wanted to get away from the embedded web view UX (web browser inside of a native app). I wanted a quick and responsive UI which the WebView lacks, so I built out a completely native study session page, including inline romaji->kana conversion.
There are a couple features I didn’t implement on the study session view because I rarely use them, but I’d like to hear how often other people use them.
- The hiragana table
- The last few correctly answered questions
- The “wrap up” button
How often do you guys use these features? And although they might have place in WaniKani’s SRS study sessions, do you think they are useful for self study sessions?
I have my own TODO list of features I would like to add into this app (JLPT progression, fully customizable decks, etc.), but I think hearing from you all will help me prioritize things more easily .
Looking forward to your input!
