AnkiMobile is a mobile companion to Anki, a powerful, intelligent flashcard program that is free, multi-platform, and open-source. Sales of this app support the development of both the computer and mobile version, which is why the app is priced as a computer application. AnkiMobile offers some features not found in other flashcard apps: - A free cloud synchronization service that lets you keep your card content synchronized across multiple mobile and computer devices. This makes it easy to add content on a computer and then study it on your mobile, easily keep your study progress current between an iPhone and iPad, and so on. - The same proven scheduling algorithm that the computer version of Anki uses, which reminds you of material as you're about to forget it. - A flexible interface designed for smooth and efficient study. You can set up AnkiMobile to perform different actions when you tap or swipe on various parts of the screen, and control which actions appear on the tool buttons. - Comprehensive graphs and statistics about your studies. - Support for large card decks - even 100,000+ cards. - If your cards use images or audio clips, the media is stored on your device, so you can study without an internet connection. - A powerful search facility that allows you to find cards that match criteria such as 'tagged high priority, answered in the last ten days and not containing the following words', and automatically place them into a deck to study. - Support for displaying mathematical equations that were added with LaTeX in the desktop software, and ruby text above Asian languages. Please note that AnkiMobile is currently intended as a companion to the computer version of Anki, rather than a complete replacement for it. While AnkiMobile is able to display your cards in the same way the computer version does, certain changes like modifying note types need to be done with the computer software. For this reason, please familiarize yourself with the computer version of Anki before you think about buying this app. Please also note that while you can use almost any language on your cards, AnkiMobile's user interface is only available in English at the moment. Aside from the cloud synchronization service, AnkiMobile also supports copying decks to and from your device via the USB cable and iTunes. Like all apps, AnkiMobile can be purchased once and then used on multiple devices in a household using the same Apple ID. Family sharing is also supported. For information on bulk discounts for educational institutions, please see For more information on AnkiMobile, including a link to the online manual, please have a look at the support page: If you have any questions or want to report an issue, please let us know on our support site and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.



  • Incredibly powerful

    By Nate the Great’s Hit Parade
    This app has helped me master over a 1,000 words in Ancient Greek and over 1,500 of German and counting. It’s not flashy and has a learning curve up front, but incredibly powerful. The problem with physical flashcards is they’re time consuming to make, complicated to keep track of, and cumbersome to carry. This solves all of of those. Every word I look up while reading I screenshot. Later I put all the screenshots into a specific album where a Siri Shortcut converts them to JPEG, crops them, and reduces their size. I then enter each photo into Anki, reviewing them as I go. With this process, I can make 50 flashcards in 10 minutes. Then each one is shown to you exactly when you need it, and is always in my pocket to review anywhere. There is not a word I look up that is not memorized now. In a year, I have made 3,500 flashcards in 5 different languages. I review 200 a day. If you invest some time to figure out how to use this app, it will change your intellectual life.

    Have been using it for 8 years! Very powerful, flexible and reliable tool. Can’t wish anything better!
  • Add the NIGHT MODE

    By Demven
    And Apple watch support. I'd like to get some flashcards during a day in my wrist and answer them. Many thanks for your work, the app is great.
  • Useful app for Anki on the go

    By mkeroles
    This app is useful for reviewing cards on the go. The one thing that is limiting me from creating cards using the app for iOS is that there is no way to indent text when making a card. Please add this feature
  • Great app, has syncing issues

    By J Kangaroo
    I love this app and use it all the time for studying. However, it doesn’t sync well between devices. If I study everything on my iPhone for example and have it synced to the app on my iPad, the iPad will still say I have to study everything even after I press the synchronize button. This needs fixing. The issue has only been from the iPhone to other devices. When I study the cards on my computer and iPad everting syncs fine.
  • Best flashcards for language learning

    By christina^_^•~_~•+_+
    I was skeptical about paying for the Anki flash card mobile app, but wow these flashcards are really amazing. I started using them to learn languages and downloaded a sample deck from the Fluent Forever website. Using that template, it has been so easy to create cards with images and sounds to supercharge my language learning. And having the flashcard app on my phone makes it easy to study anywhere. Thanks Anki team!!
  • Android Version is so much better!

    By MMBlessing
    First time I used Anki was the free Android app (AnkiDroid). Loved it, used it for months, successfully passed that round of board exams. Would have gladly paid for it. I switched to using an iPhone and iPad (AnkiMobile, a different app, > $20), and it’s driving me crazy. Unlike the Android version, you can’t easily review all of your cards. If only they had two study settings: “review all” for quickly going through all cards in the days leading up to a test, and “long term memory” for the algorithms they’ve determined work best for solidifying information. There are ways around it, but all are a pain and not easy to use as their support website acknowledges. Would gladly pay for the app to have both options at my fingertips. AnkiMobile is not worth the money.
  • Great App, needs improvements

    By connernoland
    I am currently using this app for school. It is a great concept and has helped me learn a lot of information quickly. However, I do have a few suggestions: 1) I would really enjoy the ability to add subjects into folders. For example, after I am tested on a set of subjects I would like to be able to place them in an “old tests” folder. That way it is off of my main screen and reduces clutter. 2) It would be nice to have the option to create collaborative decks. Sharing a deck with a friend is possible, but it does not automatically update across all devices when cards are added. Even when you synchronize the cards, it only updates to the one account, not all accounts the deck has been shared with. 3) It is not possible to reset a deck on the iPad app. You have to go into the computer app to reset a study schedule. 4) I have not been able to share just one deck at a time. When I share something, it shares all of my decks. It also replaces the collection of the person I share the decks with. Just one subject at a time would be nice. 5) it would be nice to have more themes. A black mode would be nice in order to minimize blue light exposure. For $25 it seems like there would be a little more customization available.
  • Poor customer service

    By sghiassi
    App lacks the the ability to use Flashcards more traditionally. I submitted a support request to customize my features and was told, “if that’s what you want there are other apps to suit your needs...” which is true, but I paid for this one and after creating hundreds of cards, instead of explaining how to only repeat the cards I’m getting wrong, Damien is basically telling me to get lost.
