    I use both WaniKani apps, but over the years primarily used this one, because it has more functionality and is more lightweight. I have decided to fully swap to the other app as it seems this one is not supported anymore (not searchable in Play store), but thought I'd leave a review anyway! Thanks for your work.

    Wish it had a reading>meaning option but still worth 5 stars

    I looove this companion api app for WaniKani. It's super helpful to be able to utilize the SRS system while I'm not at my computer so I can stay on top of my reviews right as they are available. I've tried similar apps, but this is by far the most useful one for me. Thank you so much for making it!

    WaniKani is amazing and I love this app. Only suggestion would be to have a setting to enable auto-playing the audio for the reading when doing reviews. Other than that, no issues.

    Font change function does not work correctly. If you swipe to the right screen, the kanji is displayed in the font chosen. However, during review and during lessons, the kanji displays using system font. This is not good because on android phones, due to Han unificaton, the font displays simplified chinese rather than japanese (hence the need for a working font changing fuction). Most notably, 直.

    I've been studying Japanese off and on for months, this has kept me engaged and learning better than anything else.
