v2.2.0 is bringing custom Japanese text analysis to Tangoristo

v2.2.0 brings custom Japanese text analysis to Tangoristo ! Here it is! After a long time with this feature on my list of pending work. You can type or copy/...

v2.1.1 brings fixes for iOS and Android
๐Ÿž Fixed issue preventing some cached articles to be read offline.
๐Ÿž [Android] Split screen capability is available again.
๐Ÿž [Android] Fix cases when cached document results where not being reused.
๐Ÿ”ง Adjusted size of review cards on tablet devices.
๐Ÿ”ง [Android] Further cleanup of unnecessary app permissions.

v2.1.0 is now live on Android! Coming up soon for iOS.
Lots of good stuff in this update:
๐Ÿš€ Introducing a new vocabulary 'Review' mode.
๐Ÿš€ Improved offline support. After opening an article for the first time, it remains in the cache for one week.
๐Ÿš€ Faster and more robust access to document lists.
๐Ÿž The side bar is now more responsive.
๐Ÿž Fix for OnePlus users that have experienced truncated text when using 'OnePlus Slate' font.
๐Ÿ”ง Removed unnecessary app permissions.
๐Ÿ”ง Locked app into portrait mode (sorry landscape is not yet supported).

Android users:
This week I'm testing a new "Review" tab within the Android Beta program. This feature is not intended to replace specialized SRS apps like Anki, but to offer a simple and quick review tool.
I'll be most likely refining this idea over the next week before doing a full release for both iOS and Android devices.
If you'd like to take it for a spin please join the beta program at https://play.google.com/apps/testing/com.tangoristo

๐ŸŽ‰ Best Japanese learning app of 2017 ๐Ÿฅ‡ !!!!
๐ŸŽ‰ Thank you for your support!

"In first we have TangoRisto, a unique little reading app made to help you actually learn from all those NHK News Web Easy articles you've been trying to read. The app takes these news articles, parses them, and gives you vocabulary lists with readings, meanings, and JLPT levels. There are tons of customization options to make it as efficient as possible for your particular level (like adding and removing furigana). And honestly, we were shocked it took so long for an app like this to come out, but we're glad it finally did."


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.
