Network Error in Wanikani Mobile for Android

I think you’re on to something. I just finished 5 kanji that should have put me well into 90% to start the next level. However, the level stayed the same and my reviews are at zero. This applies to the app and the website. Something’s not right.

Oh, now they are both working again, app and website. Cool.

I’m getting the same issue on the main site. I perpetually have reviews waiting now:

Sometimes I’ll get a few second lag after I just finish reviews, but this is like… forever.

Heads up. Looks like there are other people in other threads with (what I think is) the same issue.

Something really weird just happened to me too, and on the web version.

I finished 105 reviews (I think, around that amount), but then the same reviews came back again ._. so i did them twice. I don’t think the amount that came back was 105 though, probably 30 or so, but…woot??


I hope everything will be ok now!

Yup, this juuuuust happened to me as well.

Trump and the Russians may be hacking WaniKani…OhNoes!!


Weird things happening here too, did a bunch of reviews twice. radicals that I just guru’d are still saying they are apprentice and ready to review, but no reviews to do


So…it could still be the Russians, technically…

I use this and have gotten the exact same issue as well. I really hope it gets fixed at some point, but I don’t know if anybody still updates this app or anything :frowning:

Yeah, my mistake. Let’s call them an old one (subj) and a pink one

My point is, the old one is not discoverable in Google Play via search anymore. If I’m not mistaken, it was discoverable long ago.

The issue described in my initial post seems to actually be fixed on it’s own or something.
Quite confusing, yet satisfying.

Thanks everyone. Whoever has the same issue, check it out, should be working as well.
By the way, what about the other issues reported in this thread? Are those fixed for you as well?

It’s fixed for me as well (yay!) No offense to the person that made the more recent app, but I like all the extra info in the graphs and stuff from this old app and would prefer to keep using it!

I am suffering from the same problems. I love the old App. it gives me incentives to study on time. It also gives the vocab words in an order that is far easier to print off than the offical one, to keep in records. I often restudy, words I have burnt. I am talking about the App published by Alberto Cudo. Totally one of the best concieved apps ever.
I am also doing reviews over and over on the official site. I thought it was my imagination.

I am now getting weird statistics on my time line and no vocab at all. How come this is happening six months after your complaints ?. Anyone out there getting weird stuff happening on the Old WaniKani Mobile app ?? I so want to keep on using it.

Ah… Sorry for late answer. Uh, no, I didn’t have statistics or vocab issues. I probably missed them, since I had a little vacation.
What about now? Is everything working correctly? I can’t see a problem with my application.

I’ve always used this “old” app … It’s now stopped working (as of 27 May 2020).
Please … what is “the pink one” ??
Wanikani website on a mobile phone is horrible. Worst thing about it is when you hit enter after typing a word, the keyboard goes away, so you have to move to another place on the screen to hit the > to get to the next word. Gah.

I’m still using the old /original application as of May 28, 2020. I wonder what happened?

I really hope someone will pick this back up. After several years, though, I’m sure hope is lost. :pensive:

I for the old one working again. I had to generate a new API key (version 1). What worries me now is that there is a site warning alongside this key in the wanikani settings that it will stop working from Sept 2020.
I already tried putting an API version 2 key into the old app, but it didn’t work; only the version 1 key works.
This “old” app is the best by far of all wanikani apps. Is still like to know what “the pink one” is.

Make that “I got the old one working again…”. I hate autocorrect :stuck_out_tongue:
