    I have been using this app for years, it's very useful. One thing that I have noticed in my last levels, is that the bar of kanji now only shows the number of kanji that are already in apprentice, it doesn't count the ones that we haven't learned yet. It's misleading because it makes me thing that I will be able to go up to the next level without guruing the radicals, which is not true. Since this app hasn't been updated in a while, I assume it's a bug with the wanikani api...

    It's a great app, it would be nice if it was updated to reflect the new 10 levels "51-60" so estimates could be calculated.

    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.
