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.

  • It’s going to get me an MD

    By kunoichi_chicky
    Anki has been tremendous & game-changing for me. It’s completely open source, and the relatively high price tag (compared to other apps) on the mobile app supports the development team. The desktop version is free. Incredibly powerful, great development community, a ton of add-ons available, huge amount of flexibility, and - most importantly - massive pre-made decks. “Zanki” is a med school deck that’s almost comprehensive for step 1. How much did u pay for boards and beyond? Sketchy? Pathoma? Not that you shouldn’t use them in conjunction, but Zanki (and other supplemental decks) has entered the canon and it’s 100% /free./ Amazing. Support open-source development, get this app.
  • Like it but wish I could font

    By すギリ
    I recently found a font I want to use in the app but cannot use it immediately in the app. In order to use it you have to use the desktop application and do a bunch of technical stuff ( I've never done it before and know notions about code) I wanted to buy anyfont and use that but, pretty sure it won't work. I wish I could use anyfont because it's the fastest way to go and won't take a long time to do
  • Does Not Compare To PC Functionality

    By DoctahDave
    The mobile versions of Anki are lacking in their potential functionality. My desktop version has multiple add-one which greatly improve studying. However, when I switch to mobile I am living in a significantly neutered experience which is not worth the app price unfortunately.
  • Not worth the purchase

    By ArArAr94
    I paid too much for this app, to not to be able to organize cards into folders. Even quizlet can do that in the free version. The app version is severely limited in features that the computer/laptop version has for FREE. So why did I even pay for this useless app?
  • No point in purchasing

    By Christee123
    It’s a steep price for an app that doesn’t work. I use the image occlusion add on from my computer to create the flash cards. I wish I had known that every single flash card would glitch on my iPad once I tried to transfer them over. Waste of $25 honestly.
  • Unable to Use

    By Anita Crumbs
    It’s super challenging to sync up established decks making this app essentially un-usable. There was no real point of my purchasing it so I’m trying to get a refund and even that seems impossible.
  • Useless

    By JVman
    The iOS app is cartoonishly bad and at $25 is the worst software value imaginable. Buy anything else. Where are the next and last buttons? Why is text scaling so bad? It looks like a high school software project that was never completed.
  • Incredibly powerful

    By Nate the Great’s Hit Parade
    This app has helped me master over a 1,000 words in Ancient Greek and over 1,500 of German and counting. It’s not flashy and has a learning curve up front, but incredibly powerful. The problem with physical flashcards is they’re time consuming to make, complicated to keep track of, and cumbersome to carry. This solves all of of those. Every word I look up while reading I screenshot. Later I put all the screenshots into a specific album where a Siri Shortcut converts them to JPEG, crops them, and reduces their size. I then enter each photo into Anki, reviewing them as I go. With this process, I can make 50 flashcards in 10 minutes. Then each one is shown to you exactly when you need it, and is always in my pocket to review anywhere. There is not a word I look up that is not memorized now. In a year, I have made 3,500 flashcards in 5 different languages. I review 200 a day. If you invest some time to figure out how to use this app, it will change your intellectual life.
  • The Standard. Other apps are shallow imitations.
