Will API Apps mess with your progress?


#1

Sorry if this has been asked before, but here’s the deal:

I want do download app that lets me learn my WK vocabs in reverse, i.e. show me the hiragana/english word and have me draw the kanji. However: If I screw up a kanji there, will its progress drop in WK as well? 

I ask this because with the standard mobile WK app this is the case. (Here, however, that’s intended)

I’m talking about this app in particular /t/Memrise-English-to-KanjiKana-Vocab-Course/4734/1

The API is read-only: it cannot make your items progress or regress, just show information.
Certain applications embed a browser that allows you to do your reviews, but it’s done through a browser interface and you have to log into WaniKani.com.

And your link seems to point to a memrise course, which has nothing to do with the API whatsoever.

nope.  completely different system.

 I'd refrain from calling it standard, it's unofficial. It still requires your ID+PW to do reviews, thus you can modify your progress. An API key alone as has been stated is read-only and will not affect progress.

I don’t think that one even connects to your account. It’s a different website entirely.
