Public API Key

Hi everyone. I started WaniKani the other day, and would like to use it on my phone as well. I downloaded an unoffical app off of the Google Play Store, and it’s asking for my Public API Key. The thing is, I don’t have one. I’ve checked the entirety of my settings page and there is not even a mention of a public API key. I can generate personal ones in “API Tokens”, but the app isn’t accepting those.

Any help?

If the app is old, try the API version 1. If it’s new, then version 2 (Personal Access Tokens)

Ah yes, it seems I’d only tried it with version 2 personal keys. Version 1 worked fine. Thanks for your help.

Eventually, version 1 will be discontinued, but that might not be until 2020
