Now that the giant new reviews update is up, it’s time to update the reviews summary. Viet took a lot of your feedback and implemented it into what you see here. We think it’s much easier to use and will allow you to take a look at the things you got wrong.
Speaking of which, just hover over anything you answered incorrectly. It will tell you the meaning / reading, which will allow you to try to remember it so you can get it correct next time. Or, just go through each incorrect item and try to answer it in your head to get yourself ready for the next session.
We’ve also broken things down a little better too. Inside of “Answered Correctly” and “Answered Incorrectly” you’ll see the updated level for each item. That way you know what got knocked down to apprentice.
I hope you enjoy the updates and I also hope they’re exceptionally useful for your studies! Viet is working on fixing some little bugs now after this, but then soon after he’ll have some more big updates to show off. Carry on, carry on.
We don’t want you to have to take your hands of the keyboard while doing your lessons/reviews (much faster that way) so here are keyboard shortcuts to make this possible! They are:
W or ←: Move to the previous lesson section.
D or →: Move to the next lesson section.
SPACE: Move on to the next lesson section.
ENTER: Submit an answer. Hit it again to move on to the next review / lesson.
We’ll be adding something into the actual lessons and reviews pages telling you what these are with the next (large) update. In the meantime, though, you can use these shortcut keys and know that you’re shaving minutes off each review session. Think of how many Dorito Tacos you could eat with this saved time.
Viet’s been working hard on a lot of changes (thanks for all your feedback!) for WaniKani. An update just went out that does the following things, some of them pretty big!
Of course, there’s plenty more to be done, but hopefully some of these things will be enjoyable for you and your studies! Coming up sometime in the future is updates to the reviews/lessons pages, adding an about us page, and then after that a forum for all of you sophisticated people… I don’t really have a specific timeline for these changes and updates, but that’s generally what we’re thinking is coming next.
Any must-have features / changes you folks are thinking about right now after using WaniKani for a bit?
Parts of WaniKani got updates today. Some things that were changed:
Right now we’re still in private alpha so there’s plenty more work to be done. Keep sending in feedback if you notice anything! It really helps us to know what needs to be changed or fixed.
Also, we’ll restart sending out alpha invites today too. Just sent out 80 of them, so check those inboxes. Should get all the alpha invites out by the end of the week, we’re hoping!
