    Love it. Learned a lot in so little time. Really great how it programs the reviews and keeps you going. One thing though when i get a notification for a review and my phone is locked it keeps lightning the screen every few seconds as if have new notifications and is killing my battery

    Works perfectly to use waniwani on the go! One little thing though, is that it mutes my music when it is opened/used and unmutes when I exit it. Minor annoyance that I would like to have addressed, but the app works great other than that. Thanks!

    This app is so very good! Does everything it promises, and a little more through scripts. Is it possible to get some example sentences up and running? I think that would really make the circle complete. Altso, when clicking on example words, nothing happens. It would be nice to be able to have a look at that as well. Thanks for making this!

    Everything is working perfectly on an S4, however it doesn't want to work on my S2.
