@ShotOkan Kanji Ryokusha works with a Kanji Koohii account. You can then use the account with porukkusu's app. By default, yes, the 6th edition index is used (older editions is also supported).

Thanks, I've already installed the app and signed into it with my account.

Thanks for making this app. It's really convenient to be able to do reviews on the go.

I'm running into a problem though. Somewhat recently, in the past week or so, the Stroke Order feature in the app stopped working. This is the stroke order menu item that appears during reviews, after flipping a card over.

When I click on stroke order, I get a message saying, "Something failed! Cannot display stroke order for this kanji"

This is version 1.3 of the app. I'm on Android 7.0, build NRD90U, security patch level September 6, 2016. I suspect either my Android version, or Fabrice's recent changes to the Kanji Koohii site, may have broken something.

Would you take a look? Thanks.

I'm seeing the issue is reproducible with some of the emulators, so I should be able to find and fix the bug. Will report back.
This has nothing to do with Fabrice's changes.

Thanks, looking forward to your next update. As you might already know, version 1.4 still has the stroke order problem, and it seems to be with all kanji.

Excellent, 1.4.1 fixes the stroke order problem.

There has been another thing that's been a bit of an annoyance. If draw a kanji, then flip the card over, then allow Kanji Ryokucha to lose focus (by switching to another app, for example), the card flips back to the question again, and then I have to draw the kanji again. Is there a way to make the app remember if the card has been flipped, and preserve that state even if I switch to another app?

This would be useful, for example, if I draw a kanji, flip the card over, then want to consult a Japanese dictionary app, before pressing "Yes" in Kanji Ryokucha. But, with this current bug, if I flip the card, then check my Japanese dictionary app, by the time I return to Kanji Ryokucha, the kanji I drew is erased, so I don't remember if I got it right or not.

What do you think?

Sure it can be done. I'd have to brush up my android skills a bit though Big Grin

BTW if there are any android devs around who would like to help improve the app, just let me know.

I'd help if I knew how to do Android dev, but my dev skills are in the Windows world. Smile

I'm figuring out the issue so there will be a fix soon.
I don't normally switch apps when reviewing but losing the drawing is annoying anyway...

Version 1.5 is out now!

If you are in the middle of a review and switch apps, when returning to Kanji Ryokucha your current drawing will not be lost  Cool

Also: I added the Crashlytics library which will help me track down issues when you guys get any crashes that I can't reproduce. 

And a couple more fixes.
Update now  Wink

Yes, the bug is fixed, thanks. There's a little bit of weirdness when switching apps; the card-flipping-over animation is still played when I switch back to Ryokucha, but after the animation is done, the card is correctly flipped to the answer side of the card. Fairly minor and not worth fussing about, but just thought I'd mention it.

Good work.

Version 1.6.1 is out, introducing a button for direct access to the kanji's study page, where you can tweak the keyword, find a better story, etc.
You will see it on the back side of the cards.
Enjoy!

Sounds good. Within a month hopefully I should have a big "mobile first" update for the site, and that means the Study page should fit nicely on small screens so it works better also from your app (mainly, the sidebar will disappear, so the stories will take full width).

I'm aware some folks are getting a crash when flipping the card. So far I've been unable to reproduce the issue myself, ever. I keep this on my radar but it might help if someone having the issue can help testing possible fixes (I would send the apk by email or something, you would have to manually install it).
Just let me know!
