v2.1.0 is now live on Android! Coming up soon for iOS.
Lots of good stuff in this update:
🚀 Introducing a new vocabulary 'Review' mode.
🚀 Improved offline support. After opening an article for the first time, it remains in the cache for one week.
🚀 Faster and more robust access to document lists.
🐞 The side bar is now more responsive.
🐞 Fix for OnePlus users that have experienced truncated text when using 'OnePlus Slate' font.
🔧 Removed unnecessary app permissions.
🔧 Locked app into portrait mode (sorry landscape is not yet supported).
Great Javier! I've been following your app since the first day. Sometimes ago I've commented about a srs built in system to review vocabs like Anki (I don't know if the srs algorithm is hard to implement into the app. Maybe we could use the same one similar to Anki?). I'm so glad that you are starting to develop it. Best wishes,

Dear TangoRisto users, I have an important question to ask you!
You may not know this, but every month I pay for the servers that process and deliver the analyzed Japanese text to the app. This is a monthly cost that has become an increasing burden as I need to pay higher fees with the growing popularity of the app.
At this point I need to seek some type of revenue stream to offset these costs and hopefully fund the future growth of the app. Specifically I would like to work on a new set of feature that would allow you to quiz your vocabulary knowledge in the context of a specific text. I also want to implement offline access, support for new languages... many things!
There are two options that I see as viable revenue streams to help me fund this work moving forward:
[Option 1] To introduce ads in the app. Hopefully in a non obtrusive way. At some point I could introduce an ad-removal option at a cost of around 9 USD (I need to see what ad revenue turns out to be have a better estimate).
[Option 2] To release some or most of the next big features (e.g. app quizzing, offline access, etc.) as a paid subscription of $2 dollars per month.
I'm leaning towards Option 1 since I would like for everybody to have access to all features and I know that even 2 dollars a month may be too much for some users.
Please click on the poll below and do send me your feedback. I want to continue making this a better app, but I also need to find a way to balance my expenses.
Hi. I have no problem to pay a one-time fee. That actually includes even paying 24 dollars a year. Even though it is quite a lot. But please consider including long-term payments as I never trust anyone so much to give them my debet/credit card credentials. Thanks for your great job!
