This unofficial companion app for WaniKani improves the experience of doing WaniKani lessons and reviews while on iOS devices. Please note that a WaniKani account is required to use this app.

What's New in Version 2.1
This version includes the Jitai font randomiser user script, plus the suggested fonts. It also contains changes for iOS 10.
User scripts should now be consistently available in every web view, no matter where it was opened from. For example, if you tap the link at the bottom to load the WaniKani web dashboard then start a review from there, all the user scripts you have enabled should be available.
AlliCrab is a great little app, and effortlessly delivers everything you need for all things Wanikani. I hear what people have said about it only linking to the WK website, but actually the app works best in it's simplicity. It doesn't feel cluttered or cheesy, (and the always-tastefully-brief home screen art will make you wish you had a few seconds longer to feast your eyes on its rich composition.) :-p Add-on scripts definitely enhance the functionality of reviews and lessons. And, with its subtle and timely review reminder messages, Allicrab's really pushed my daily study time up, and has made my reviewing easy and more effective.
Pretty nice app
Seems to work pretty well, if not a little bit clunky. Every review or lesson simply goes to the website instead of happening in-app, which is a little weird. Also, after every review, you're taken to the summary page but the home page is inaccessible from there. You'd think the app would sense that you're at the summary page and exit the in-app browser. These are just little gripes, however. The app works perfectly as advertised.
The included scripts really speed up reviews on the iPad.
