Description

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.

  • Not worth it

    Ostensibly useful, but absolutely horrid, horrid UI and obtuse documentation. For 25 bucks, you’d think a designer could be hired. Way overpriced for such a painfully bad UI.
  • The Most Important App on My Phone

    Thanks Anki for all you do. As someone who never pays for apps, I quickly realized this was easily worth the money. Having your personally crafted flashcards on mobile to use during ANY brief downtime (waiting in line) is front loading your brain to connect the ideas later while it’s in diffuse mode. I have decks for language learning, geography, flags, new vocabulary, and top book highlights so far. The picture and audio on flashcards shows up and works great on the phone so far. I like how easy it is to edit a flashcards on mobile if you want to change something. The design is simple and that is a truly good thing in my opinion. It reminds me of the 90s, not only the design but making a one time payment for a good program. When first setting up a second device, I was asked a few times if I wanted to overwrite the Anki on my device or the Anki on my cloud, and I had to do this a few times on the desktop version. But now it’s seamless and whether I’m on phone or laptop I just remember to sync what I’ve done and it’s a quick moment before both devices are synced up. Locking in my world geography, recent reading highlights, and the most frequent 625 words in a new language is what Anki is doing for me in the first couple of weeks using it.

    Will there be controller support in iOS 13?
  • What’s the point if the servers can’t sync half the time

    Would be great if i didn’t waste a day on cards not connecting to the server
  • Need to add card editor/browser

    I almost always use my iPad Pro to use Anki but I need to use my laptop to add/remove cards, share decks, or even just browse cards in the deck. If we get this feature it’d be worth the $30
  • Good app

    Have been using it for years through med school and beyond. Needs option to make flash cards with Apple Pencil or surface pen to keep up with modern times
  • Best Flashcard App, but...

    I have been using Anki’s desktop and browser version to help get me through med school. I’ve tried quizlet, study blue, and a couple other less known flashcard apps that just didn’t have the flexibility that Anki has. Anki may be simple looking in its aesthetics, but it’s a lot more powerful than the competition. You can add virtually anything (audio, media, text, etc) to a flash card, can study at your own pace, and review your progress. With its spaced repetition programming, it has everything you need and more in a flash card application. So why the three stars? Two reasons: the price and the inability to choose which decks to download. 1. The Web and desktop versions are free. Although I have no qualms in supporting the developers by buying this app, the price is a little steep for an otherwise free product. 2. On Anki you make a profile, and all of your decks, progress, etc are synced to that profile. When you download the app, not only do you sync to your profile, but every card of every deck that is linked to your profile is then downloaded onto your phone. You can’t choose which decks you want to download, so you’re stuck with three choices, none of which are optimal. Either you delete decks as to not overwhelm the hard drive on your phone, create a new account and go through the process of exporting data daily from one account to another just to keep up with the progress you’ve made on a deck, or be consigned to the fact that you’re just going to have to make room for the multiple gigabytes of data that come along with having an Anki account. As a whole, I give Anki 5 stars, but this app falls short of the type of flexibility I’ve come to expect from the developers of Anki.
  • Night mode looks so pretty!

    It's looks really nice. The only issue I have with it is that it doesn't change the keyboard to the dark theme.
  • Couldn’t have done med school without it

    Used it all through med school and now I basically have my med school notes with me all the time and they’re searchable! It’s amazing. Used it for step studying as well and now I’m using it for board studying. I don’t know what I’d do without it. Best $25 I’ve ever spent. One thing - can you make the review buttons bigger (the ones on the bottom of the screen when you’re deciding when to see the card again)? They’re smaller and harder to press now.
  • Thanks so much for bringing back theme options!!

    The slate theme looks great on my phone and is just what I was hoping. It seems many users and not just myself grew attached to the old school color scheme of the interface, so thank you for complying to our oddly specific demands :)
