WaniKani (http://www.wanikani.com) is a kanji learning web app that
uses radicals, mnemonics, and SRS (Spaced Repetition Software).

This (unofficial) app for Android is a front end of this web site, so in order
to use it you MUST subscribe to WaniKani first and obtain an API key.

If features a small dashboard, an integrated review page (with a custom IME),
an item browser. It also shows a notification icon as reviews become available.
It tracks your progress and can plot the number of items learned, or the number
of reviews that you are going to have during the day.
It is particularly suited for small handsets.

    This app is just awesome, I love it. The only thing I wish would improve its the interface and maybe chromecast support ;)

    Does everything I need. Would love it even more if it chimes when current level's kanji or radicals become available for review in addition to the change of icon. :>

    App is fast, light and does what it needs to do without error. In some respects, it is better than the original website interface due to the JLPT breakdown, onyomi and kunyomi indicators and tells you exactly when the terms will appear in your reviews again. Truly a masterpiece.
