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 (apart from in India). For information on bulk discounts for educational institutions, please see Apple's Volume Purchase Program.

Anki has been fantastic and I have been using it for over a year now for PA school. When I look at my stats, I noticed that one of my days has 0 reviews, however, when I looked at that same day on my desktop, it showed I had 600+ cards reviewed for that day
It is a paid so at least give us the Add-on which is available in pc versions of this app
Watch out for imposters
The app will not let me add photos directly from the camera
I have found much of this app extremely unintuitive. It took over 20 minutes of research and trial & error to figure out how to study a single deck in reverse order, which seems to me a fundamental feature of a flash card app. There are a number of other settings that I’ve found very difficult to locate and apply, especially per deck. There‘s definitely a lot of functionality & customizability available here but for **$20**, I feel it should be much easier to use. The basics of the app work fine and the spaced repetition is invaluable, but prepare to be frustrated if you want to do much beyond that.
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.
so many options and ways to add cards. I’ve been using Anki on web, and on Android, and finally now the iPhone app so I can study on my main phone. I agree with other folks here saying it’s a shame apple promotes copycats instead of this app which connects to the powerful web tool. I’m using Anki primarily to study ASL (American Sign Language), and as such the support for Gifs, images, videos, and links to the web make this the best, if not the only, flash card app suited to my needs. I have only two suggestions. Right now, my workflow is to write a note on my Samsung Galaxy Note in the native notes app, screenshot and crop the note, and upload the screenshot to Ankidroid, which I can then synchronize and later study on Ankimobile (iPhone). It would save me time if I could write a handwritten note directly into Anki. If this were possible, I would consider buying a stylus or Apple pen in order to make notes on my iPhone. Right now, in order to make handwritten notes, I have to do the writing in another app and upload the screenshot to Anki. Not a dealbreaker for me since I use my Galaxy Note phone specifically for this purpose, but would be a nice feature nonetheless if I didn’t need to switch apps to take screenshots, and instead could write a handwritten note directly into AnkiMobile with my finger or a pen. My other suggestion would be to add a “synchronize now” button to the “Congratulations” page that shows once you’ve finished studying a deck for the day. I often forget to sync my deck after studying (thanks ADHD) and since I’m often switching between Ankiweb, Ankidroid, and Ankimobile, it would help me out if I could sync immediately after finishing my daily study session. Just two minor suggestions for an otherwise fantastic and full-featured app. Thank you for this great program, I’m happy to pay $25 for something I use every day and comes so highly recommended by language-learners on the internet. I would highly recommend this app to anyone who needs flash cards for any reason.
Very convenient and functional.
Have basically everything I expected of Anki and AnkiWeb except in an iOS app. Will happily pay to support the official Anki guys. It took little getting used to the specific shortcuts and layouts buts it’s nice and the sync feature is appreciated. Biggest gripe is no volume control in app, but I guess that’s minor.
This app is much comfier to use than AnkiWeb. Dark mode looks excellent. (Shame it isn’t shown in the app previews.) MathJax support is a huge bonus, too.
