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 with MathJax, and rendering LaTeX created with the computer version. 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. 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. For information on bulk discounts for educational institutions, please see Apple's Volume Purchase Program.

  • Very Useful

    By mesae
    I have been using Anki for years on Windows, Android and iOS. I bought the iOS version twice, once on my work account, and on my personal account. I believe the developer deserves the support. Anki is very powerful, and the interface takes a bit of effort to learn, but it is worth the effort. If you haven’t memorized what you need to know, it’s your own fault. With tools like this available, there is no excuse, except maybe time available.
  • Overly complicated and unintuitive.

    By dbitzz
    I really wanted to like this app, and the ideas behind it are great but it is sorely lacking in user experience design. I bought it in order to use latex markup in flash cards but after hours of trying to get this feature to work in the desktop version, and syncing to mobile, I gave up and just made paper cards. After all, I have class work to do instead of trying to master how Anki works. Before buying this mobile version, give the desktop version a serious trial and make sure you can work with the very strange workflow that it requires of you. This app needs flash cards of its own to understand how it is supposed to work, it is extremely unintuitive. By far the most expensive app I have ever bought and I’m not very satisfied with it.
  • Thanks for the Backup feature!

    By ChipChesterton00000000
    I accidentally lost all my progress in a synchronization error (I hit download instead of upload). Fortunately, the app keeps copious backups of progress and restoring one is trivial (Settings > Backups). Huuuuge thanks to the developers that built that feature. The app has otherwise been great. Has all kinds of features that I haven’t tried to use, too.
  • Limitations are frustrating

    By arsenius
    Although I’m still using it, the limitations are frustrating considering the price. Can’t edit card templates, so you have to flip your cards on the desktop. Interface is workable but could be made better with just a little effort. The scheduler is not optimal: It seems to schedule learning/relearning cards (red) after reviews. If I change the interval modifier it doesn’t change the number of cards for review. I believe it changes the interval for subsequent reviews. The same cards tend to appear grouped together over time, which serves as an undesired hint.
  • Why can't recite from the beginning in order

    Why can't recite from the beginning in order
  • Have to pay on iPadOS and iOS

    By Xtreme critique
    I want to use Anki on my phone, tablet, and laptop but you have to pay for Anki on your phone AND on the tablet. I do not like having to pay $25 on two devices.

  • I want my money back...

    By ...angel.devil...
    So I had this app on my regular computer, it was working ok, I found it hard to navigate in general. Downloaded the app bc I need to get something done to my computer, it’s so freaking expensive for an app, and I have encountered sooooo many problems with it. First, it takes a million years to sync, and then the syncing doesn’t even work right! You have to have the computer program in order to organize the decks and cards.. and then my previous cards lost all of there media!! All of it! I was like ok, fine I’ll just redownload the whole freaking deck and reorganize it ...and guess what? I finished what I was doing and it synced... I look on both the app and my computer and all of my cards disappeared... I am beyond frustrated. It was over 14,000 flash cards... I’m in Medical school, I don’t have time to keep downloading and reorganizing and waiting for it sync.... I know other people like this app, and good for them, but to me, it is not worth the hassle. Even people that like it, say it is hard to navigate as well.
  • Thanks for Game Controller Support!

    By Anders Family
    Adding game controller support with iOS 13 made another giant dent in what I’m able to accomplish on my iPad instead of relying on my Mac; it’s great to see the developer chopping away at feature disparity between the iPad and Mac. Still want to see some improvement in the Browse screen, but I’m along for the ride!
  • Great but Pen support could be more

    By Samrat221b
    WIth increase in use of apple pencil in ipads, the pencould be made more functinal. One thing I would love would be the ability to draw on the cards at the time of review. That would be a game changer.
