I have managed to add the on yomi katakana madness script on my desktop but I can’t seem to download it on to my iPad. I’m using safari but I also tried in chrome. Is it possible to use user scripts on iPads?
I have iOS too, and as far as I know you cannot use userscripts on any iOS devices unfortunately – however, the iOS WK app (Allicrab) has some userscripts built into it already, that’s the only way I’ve been able to use any on mobile
I second what @MissMisc said. I do most of my reviews on my iphone and as far as I am aware, there is no possibility beside apps. Tsurukame, Allicrab and Wanikani each have different scripts implemented.
Apple prohibits any kind of scripting from a source outside the app in iOS.
Thank you for your reply. I’ve downloaded the app. How to activate any available scripts?
Click the gear icon in the top right corner of the app and that’ll pull up all the settings, the available userscripts are at the top
Do you travel a lot or do you actually do that by choice? I once had to use my phone to avoid throwing off my schedule and it was a horribly painful experience. Took me about an hour and a half to do a set of reviews I can usually finish in under 15 minutes.
Keyboard is already far more efficient than touchscreen entry, and that becomes doubly true on the Japanese side where there’s nothing like swipe to help out.
I use Tsurukame for ios and it has some of the most common script functions built in. Works great on iphone but I’ve had bad luck using it on an ipad (went through full review sessions and did not sync to WK). Others use it without trouble so it could just be an anomaly.
By choice… I do most things on my phone. I‘m also typing this on mobile, even though I‘m at home, sitting at my desk. I only ever use my pc for stuff I can‘t very well do on my phone, like programming, writing project reports and the like. All the rest, important emails, reviews etc gets done on mobile…
I feel like every time I do reviews on a computer, my failure rate increases. I really don‘t like reviewing on a big screen… Over time, I‘ve become quite fast at typing on the small touch keyboard.
That being said, I‘m also often doing stuff on the go. I‘ve got a 2,5 hours of commuting time to fill every day…
I’m very much the other way. I’m quite proficient a typist, using a keyboard all the time for work and leisure. And since a touchscreen seems such a pain, I go out of my way to avoid it ensuring I’ll never reach even average proficiency at that and ensuring it’s always a huge pain when I am forced to do it.
I even have all my texts go through google hangout specifically so I can respond to them on my computer. If someone does text me when I’m away from my computer, I’ll read it, but will almost always wait until I’m home/at work so I can respond with a keyboard.
Hi, I just posted about a workaround for running scripts on iOS, maybe this helps: Running userscripts on iOS: a workaround
It’s not super quick and easy and you’ll have to connect your device to your MacBook once a week and upload the app again but it is the best I could figure out for people who don’t have an Apple Developer account.
Forgive my crabigator, for I have sinned. But for me it is Anki mode all the way.
