Looks good! Unfortunately I can’t test because I do not own an iOS device.
By the way, it’s ‘available’, not ‘avaliable’. :wink:

Looks neat! While I’m probably not exactly tester material, I would love to use the app in the future.

Are some additional features like statistics, ignore answer button (I fumble tons of my reviews due to lousy typos on the phone) or do level-gating items first planned?

Can you add me to your tester group. Mail is csosborn [at] live com

 +1 for all of this, especially an ignore answer button. I'm one of the lucky few to still have the old app downloaded, and I make SO MANY TYPOS that I end up just rage quitting and waiting till I get to a computer, which kinda defeats the purpose of a phone app.

@optosi , @acetylide As someone who haven’t used the old app, I don’t know what exactly do you mean by “ignore answer button”. 

I haven’t seen any API regarding ignoring anything.

You can make some screenshots of the old app and post them here as a reference.

The old app doesn't have a igonre answer button.
But I think they are refering to the fact that an 'ignore answer button' would be a great feature to have in a new iOS app because the iPhone keyboard is sooo tiny it is super easy to make mistakes and press enter before realising you typed a mistake.

Indeed, about half of the errors I make in the iOS app are typos, and it is indeed very frustrating!

I also do not use the iOS app because there is no ignore answer button.  Too many typos.  Can’t some clever person fix this for us?

@marcsan Not really sure what’s the problem with typos and the old app. I’ve been using mine for reviews for 2 days exclusively (no website), and haven’t made a single typo.

Regarding the ignore button, I don’t think it’s possible to make one, because you can’t really ignore words on WaniKani.

Here’s how it looks in my app:


1. You type answer
2. YOU READ IT
3a. If it’s correct, you press arrow, just like on web 
3b. If it’s not correct, you edit your text and then submit it


Not really sure what’s the problem is.

 Drop your email here. I will add you to TestFligt, so that you could test it, in few days. 
After I make sure that it works ok, I will submit it to AppStore.

Would also like to say that I support an ignore answer feature. When you have 250+ reviews, you don’t really have the time to sit there and read each and individual kana to see if you got them right, especially since typing them out on a phone already take much more time. Also, when you mistype さ instead of ざ or つ instead of っ, etc., it isn’t very easy to notice on a phone. It’s the small things here and there that makes WaniKani on mobile annoying and I think that an ignore feature can fix some of them.

If you want to have an example of an ignore function you can have a look at the Android app and the userscript available. If I remember correctly, they can manage that.

I’m currently using the old app, and would love an updated one!

I don’t know how easy this would be, but I would love it if the kana keyboard popped up automtically for readings. This would be sooo much easier than the romaji-to-kana input! I make way to many typoes otherwise :frowning:

Also, at higher levels, not having lightning mode is a real pain.

But thanks for your efforts! I look forward to its release.

If you want more info about all the add-ons and features people are requesting, take a look at this thread: /t/The-New-And-Improved-List-Of-API-and-Third-Party-Apps/7694/1 We are a demanding lot…!

If you can, try linking the forums in the app so that it opens up a safari page. And lightning would be appreciated…

 I second this. I've been wanting to try to get used to the kana keyboard, but switching between the two for meanings and readings takes way too long. If you could somehow make it happen automatically, that would be amazing!
