Search WaniKani With iOS Shortcut

WaniKani has a dedicated search page now!

So I made an iOS Shortcut to search WaniKani. Works on iPhone and iPad. (Might work on macOS too now that Shortcuts are supported there?)

Does the following:

  • If you add it to the Share Sheet collection from the Shortcuts app, then you can access it from the Share button wherever that appears (Icon of an upward arrow coming out of a box or an option labeled “Share…” in the selected text menu).
  • Select some text, choose “Share…” then “Search WaniKani” and a new browser tab will open with the search results. I use this most often.
  • Run the shortcut at any time and if there is text in the clipboard then a new browser tab will open with the search results. If there is no text in the clipboard, then a prompt will appear so you can type in your search term. This is convenient if you have Shortcuts on your Home Screen.

Enjoy!
