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. For information on bulk discounts for educational institutions, please see Apple's Volume Purchase Program.

Can we get some tutorials on how to use these settings…

Maddeningly horrible user interface

This app is a complete waste of money. I know that there are pre-made card decks available, but as far as I can see, this app has no ability to download any of them. I wish I had known that before I wasted my money on this piece of crap. Life is too damned short to waste on poorly designed programs. The people who wrote this one clearly didn’t give a tinker’s cuss about the user. Don’t waste your time or money on this garbage.

For $30 you’d expect the app just work.

You shouldn’t need a workaround to get images to pop up on decks used by thousands of students.

Worthy companion for mobile

Bare bones but functions. Happy to support the dev. Note profiles don’t appear to sync at this time which is problematic.

Where’s my flash card photos?

They show up on my android phone but not Ku iPhone and the app cost over $20.00 this is very disheartening.

Show Deck Names During Practice

I love this app! I have one small request: Could you add an option to show under which Deck each card is in during study? I study multiple languages, and use the same sentence for many, and it’s hard to tell which deck the target language is coming from. I hope this could be added in a future update. Thank you.

Hierarchical tags

It’s my favorite flash card app, I really like it that I can do my flash cards on iPad when I don’t feel like doing it on Mac, but one downside to it as it always comes back and makes me go to Mac, is browsing tags is really not user friendly, on Mac there’s Hierarchical tags which really makes it much more easier specially when using premade decks. I really hope you could implement it in iOS version as well soon. Thanks

Best flashcard app (but mobile app should be updated)

The app is great but the mobile-app version is is very limited, image occlusion should be added to the mobile app, there are a lot of features that are available in laptop version that isn’t in the mobile app.
By Sanna Bakr

Well worth the price

I wouldn't recommend purchasing this app right away. Try using the free Anki desktop program to see if Anki works for you, then if you’re happy with it buy the app. I spent countless hours on the desktop program and felt it would only be right to show my appreciation by buying the app, though I’ve definitely already gotten my money’s worth.

Not a standalone app! And the cost is to make the app free for computers and Android

If you have an iPad instead of a computer, DO NOT try to use the Anki app, you’re going to be frustrated. The developer intends it as a supplement to the free computer app (and to subsidize all the computer app users as well as Android users), and lots of basic functionality for making cards and decks is missing from the iPad version (the documentation says “use the computer version to do this”). Will be seeking a refund and looking for a solution that better allows me to use my iPad to make flashcards. If you’ve got a computer to make the cards on, go for it!
