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.



  • iPad/ iPhone version needs help!

    This app is great if you are working from your desktop/MacBook. However, the iPhone and iPad version needs support. They are excellent for reviewing the cards but not for making them. Image occlusion, single cloze deletion are just some of the examples that can’t be worked through iPad/iPhone.
  • It does not support TTS, please refund me my money

    By Listening_101
    Support Representative, Before I bought this app I emailed your support email and I asked if the mobile app supported TTS(text to speech). You told me yes. I just bought the app 10 minutes and the app does not support TTS. I'm not talking about audio or media files, I'm talking specifically about TTS. Since you are a programmer that designed the app you know the difference, and you still told me "yes the mobile app supports text to speech" I saved a copy of the email. Please refund the $25 to my account and take the app back. It's useless to me without TTS. I only bought it for TTS. Please refund my account and take this app back. Thank you.
  • The Best App I’ve Ever Downloaded

    By agent008197
    This app is an absolute lifesaver. In a pair of summer aquatic biology classes, I had to memorize more than 400 pieces of information about various aquatic organisms, including insanely complicated scientific names. I was able to use Anki to memorize everything I needed to know. Every student ought to have this app. I’m definitely using it during the school year next year.
  • Hate it

    By mr geeky gadget
    I absolutely hated this app. I couldn’t import decks that I’d paid for (specifically designed from/for this app), couldn’t put pictures on the cards, couldn’t create cards on the mobile version of the cite, once cards were created I couldn’t put them in the deck I wanted, and had to use the website on a computer- it can’t be done on a mobile device. I spent 2 hours (time I’m not getting back) trying to get the app to work, and not studying, like I wanted to. I’m using a more user-friendly app now. I generated 71 cards on a different cite in less time than I spent fighting with this app.
  • greatest app for learning Japanese

    By Robin128
    incredible flash card app
  • Never forget anything

    By JLemien
    This is hands-down the best flash card app if you want to remember things. You can create your own items and customize the review intervals for each of them. You’re also able to download shared decks, but the memory benefits will be much greater if you create your own decks of cards.
  • Extremely frustrating and user unfriendly

    By Snoozalotapus
    There are no instructions. There's only a few things you can click on, none of which are a log in. Trying to get my deck from my pc to my iPad has proven to be an impossible waste of valuable time. I assume the only way this app could possibly be useful is if you already know everything about anki and how to get around it's difficult to use interface. I want my money back. This app is useless.
  • Disappearing images

    By Fwedycunezzur
    This app is great except... that my images keep disappearing!! It is soooo annoying to make hundreds of flash cards and then to have 10% of them just randomly lose their images. I am trying to learning a new language and it is so annoying to have a little empty box appear instead of my image. And the worst part is cards that used to work broke the last time I synchronized to get new cards I made. This app would be amazing but it is so frustrating to lose so many cards and to have to leave the app to go look up what words meant. Considering how much this app costs it is really disappointing. Please fix!! Would be five stars otherwise.
  • Great app, but wish there was Apple Pencil support

    By MedManic
    Very good app to help active recall. However I wish the developers would add Apple Pencil support so you can mark/highlight cards with diagrams/pictures within the app (without having to use another app as a workaround).
  • Steps for New Cards are messed up

    By Newtonduce
    I use this app every day, multiple times a day; it is easily my most used app. However, the Steps for New Cards appears to no longer allow for more than two steps (Ex: 1, 10 min) which is quite disappointing. When multiple steps are entered (ex 1, 10, 120, etc...) the app appears to only look at two of the listed steps arbitrarily (ex 1 & 120). Please bring back the previous functionality, as the ability to have multiple steps before graduating a new card greatly helps when learning difficult cards, while keeping the easy cards moving forward. Thanks!
