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 was written by the lead developer of Anki and AnkiWeb, and it has been around since 2010. Beware other apps using "Anki" in their name that have sprung up recently - they are not compatible with the rest of the Anki ecosystem, and they offer far fewer features. Some of AnkiMobile's features include: - 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 with MathJax, and rendering LaTeX created with the computer version. - Support for adding images drawn with the Apple Pencil to your cards. 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 and schedule your cards in the same way the computer version does, certain changes like modifying note types need to be done with the computer software. Add-ons are not supported, so while you can study image occlusion cards created with the computer version, they can not be created within AnkiMobile. For this reason, please start with the computer version of Anki before you think about buying this app. The cloud synchronization service is optional, and data can also be imported/exported from the app via a USB cable or AirDrop. 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.

Very basic functionality and a circa 1999 GUI.
While the computer program is free, this app is worth the price to support the small development team. I use Anki and this app religiously and the synchronization between computer, iPad, and iPhone is fantastic. One small feature I wish the development team would add is support for synchronization in Apple Shortcuts; it would be ideal to be able to run an automation that synchronizes the app both in the morning and at night to ensure that the reviews are perfectly synced between computer and other devices.
Anki helped me on my journey to B1 German. Thx to Anki I got 4000 words in my brain, many more to come!
I have found this mobile version to work really well and have almost all the functionality of the desktop app. Congrats to the developer team; they’ve done a great job here.
I’ve been creating cards since 2017, and I had to update the app today. Because iTunes kept telling me that my account was disabled, I knew what to do: delete the app and reupload it with the current version - that’s what I had to do for all my other apps Not this time. I deleted anki, and not only did I have to pay another $24.99, my profile that’s attached to my thousands of cards are gone. I don’t know what to do. This is very disheartening. I tried contacting support, but there seems to be an issue Seems like I’ll have to start over :( I’m only rating the app one star so that the creators will see this, but overall, I’d truly give the app five stars
This app is great … Unless you actually start using the computer version to help edit anything. Then you start getting cards with the wrong side on the front. Then you look and, sure enough, it says “back” where “front” should be. Your words are in the right order. The editor just has flipped which entry is which. You are forced to use the computer version to do things like delete decks. I suspect if I wanted to make any more complex cards, I would find all kinds of bugs. 0 of 10 - would not buy again.
I love studying with this app! The UI is a bit bland but I’m able to effectively learn the words that give me the most trouble and only occasionally see the easy cards! I love the presentation algorithm :)
Ignore the fakes. This is the REAL Anki app for iOS. It is worth every penny!
This all program is incredible! Most people who are having issues are commenting on glitches with the app. I suggest making your cards on the desktop version (which is free and super easy to set up) then use the app or web version to study! Trust me it is better than any other program out there. The spaced repetition that’s built in is the main factor will help you get the grades you want or finally learn whatever language!
