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, despite charging expensive subscriptions.

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 SM2 and FSRS scheduling algorithms that the computer version of Anki uses, which remind 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.

For more information on AnkiMobile, including a link to the online manual, please have a look at the support page: https://docs.ankimobile.net/support.html. If you have any questions or want to report an issue, please let us know on our support site and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.

AnkiMobile Flashcards App Comments & Reviews

AnkiMobile Flashcards Positive Reviews

Original creator; A little buggy on iOSGlad to see the iOS version of this original desktop program be so similar in features available to the user. The price looks daunting, but it’s worth the same as 2 months of a Quizlet Plus membership and has quadruple the features. No ads, no monthly payment, and a free desktop/web version with account syncing. Due to the nature of having such a small development team, this app does present with a lot more bugs than someone might be used to. Unfortunately the first deck I created was deleted to some error while synchronizing. Luckily it was only about 25 cards. The app does provide a Backup feature, but unfortunately there was no automatic backup created after finishing my deck. I’m glad to see that the app receives regular updates, and is still getting love from it’s original creator. I would love to see an easier way to report bugs through the app, without having to create an account on some random forum online. The app can be buggy, but it redeems itself with features that are better than Quizlet or any other program I have used in the past, and it definitely beats writing by hand. Looking forward to using this app for my future schooling..Version: 2.0.85

The original and the bestThe original active recall testing via spaced repetition app. Copied but never duplicated. Originally for PCs only, and always completely free, the developer made this version for iOS for which I will gladly pay to support his efforts. Stay away from the ripoff artists who use the anki name to try to get your money. I like the interface, it’s a “get down to business” interface, with a learning curve. In my experience, those are many times the most useful software. Some other guy left a star off because the icon looked dated and it doesn’t fit with his other icons. I mean, freakin really?!?! Too many developers spend too much time on a slick interface and end up with sloppy functionality. This software works if you use it. Yes, you will need to read the manual. You may need to learn some Latex. It’s not hard, once you get going. I’m fairly proficient with this software and try to use it daily. As a result, I can give you a 50 word definition of a Poisson Distribution off the top of my head. I never forget birthdays or anniversaries. Plus the looks when you can spout off dictionary definitions of random words (the other day at work I gave definitions of heuristic and algorithm). He looks are priceless. Support the original who for years did this for free. This is the flash card app for you..Version: 2.0.59

Poor reliability but otherwise great!This app is really well done and nicely written. I don't understand why or how Apple promotes the knockoff apps over this one. Truly an injustice to this app. This is the original Anki creator himself after all! Totally a fantastic app and I actually preferring studying on mobile than on desktop. That is how much better the mobile app is over even desktop anki. The only reason I knocked off two stars is because during the period right before the single biggest and most important exam I could take in my life, the creator pushed an update that was poorly tested and all my flash cards became completely useless until he was able to patch the bug. The fact that I could not use my main study tool prior to such an important exam left me with a little bit of a resentment that such an error was allowed to go out! I can understand minor bugs or some functionality lost, but when the entire app becomes unusable for weeks right when I need it most, that just makes me lose trust in the reliability of the app. I do not understand why the app was not just rolled back if the bug was that big? Really unfortunate. But then again I guess this is a single guy writing this app so it is a common problem with many other indie apps where one man can only support so much. So just be warned that reliability may be a bit problematic..Version: 2.0.90

Works well!TL;DR: Not the best looking Anki app out there, but it works flawlessly and has really helped my efforts to learn a new language. I had originally purchased a different Anki app. The other app looked a lot better, but within a few days suffered from syncing issues to the point where it became unusable. I am learning Portuguese, and didn’t want that effort to fail, so I bought this app too. It doesn’t look good, I’ll say that right off the bat. It reminds me of working with Windows 95 applications! Hence why I took away one star. But.....it works! It syncs perfectly. I love the scratchpad. That allows me to write the word on my iPad using the Apple Pencil before I flip the card, which further helps with memory and also makes sure I get the Portuguese accented characters in the right place. Ironically, I also find that it’s much faster to add new cards in this version than the better looking version I originally purchased. I say ironic as I expected the UX of the better looking version to be better all round, which was clearly not the case. Well done to the developer(s). I’m looking forward to a better looking version in the future. A move from 1995 to 2020 would be welcome :).Version: 2.0.63

Best flash card appI use Anki on my tablet, computer, and IPhone. At first I thought that the interface looked outdated, to my surprise this is the best flash card maker out there. I like the fact that you can flip the flash card and still have the ability to type in the answer (in my case I use text to speech) while the words are on the screen and mark it so it goes back in the deck. I wish that it was easier to flip the definition to the front of the card. I also wish that adding audio to the back of the card would play once the card was flipped and the answer was revealed. I enjoy using this app on my PC and being able to add pictures by copying from the search engine images and pasting directly to the card, no longer do I have to save the images to a folder and then upload them to the card. This saves me a ton of time, especially with the sync option on the separate devices. I’ve used study blue and quizlet for years. This app pretty much blows them out of the water. No more ads! Thanks Anki..Version: 2.0.44

Haptics and audiovisual feedback neededI’m very happy to have transitioned to Anki from Quizlet. There was definitely a learning curve but it was worth it in the end. The only thing I truly miss from Quizlet is the haptic and audiovisual feedback. Probably the only reason I stuck with Quizlet for as long as I did were those features. As silly as it may sound, those features had an outsized impact on my motivation to keep doing cards during a session. It may only be me, but something about the haptic feedback for a successful Apple Pay transaction makes it oddly satisfying to part ways with my money. A haptic function would have the same effect for the Anki iOS app. I love everything about Anki but this feature is sorely needed to make the learning feel more immersive..Version: 23.12.1

No other way to memorizeI've never written an app review before, but this app has changed my life so much that I feel compelled to write one. I'm a medical student studying for board exams, and Anki has completely changed the way I approach rote memorization of facts. It can be used to memorize anything by repeating flash cards At THE RIGHT TIME so that it doesn't fade from your memory. Apart from the automatic delivery, the other advantage over physical flash cards is that the app supports not only text, but also audio (if you want to remember the pronunciation of a drug or microorganism or anything else), photos (especially helpful for anatomy or other flowcharts and tables), and videos within the flash card. To get started, I'd suggest using the desktop app first since it's always easier to navigate in a bigger screen. It takes some time to learn how to navigate the app and to learn all the different settings and features, but once you do it's brilliant. The iOS app is ALMOST just as powerful as the desktop app. However, as of December 2018, the iOS app doesn't have the ability to flag or view flagged flash cards (available on the 2.1 release of the desktop app and incredibly useful to help find and organize cards as you review them). That's a minor complaint though and I hope it gets written into the mobile app as well. Overall though, this is definitely the best way to memorize information in the 21st century. Two thumbs up!.Version: 2.0.44

Incredibly powerfulThis 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..Version: 2.0.43

Best flashcard app, bar noneI searched for years for a good flashcard app for my smartphone, but everything I found was limited and made me compromise on what I was learning. Not Anki. The immense flexibility of this app means I can learn whatever I want, however I want to. Using Anki has been crucial in my ability to learn Spanish, help remember important facts at my new job, prepare for tests, and get a solid grasp of country locations and capitals around the world. Pre-existing decks you can download from other users mean that you can build off one another’s knowledge. But you can also design your own, and include sounds, video, images, text, mathematical symbols, whatever you need. The smart spaced repetition methodology the program uses means you won’t waste time going over cards you already know well, but will efficiently stay focused on new cards and cards you are learning. This is the best money I have ever spent on an App, and I use it every day..Version: 2.0.36

A great tool. Worth learning to use.Been using Anki desktop and AnkiWeb on mobile, so I was already sold on what Anki offered before purchasing this. This app really is what you make of it. There are plenty of good decks out there, but you’ll likely get a better experience if you take the time to customize your cards and learn a bit of HTML/CSS. I had been using the web interface before on mobile, and it while it technically works, you have more control over the experience with the app, a better use of screen space, and the option to remove everything from the screen that isn’t your flashcard. This is a great tool and definitely worth the purchase. In my first review, I had a complaint about the implementation of audio buttons in the mobile app. The dev responded to this review with what I needed for the CSS styling and added it to the manual: “The giant audio buttons are a bit of any eyesore and can mess with card formatting. I’m turning them off for now, despite it being useful for cards with multiple audio clips. Please add options to at least change the size of the button. Maybe have it scale with font size in the CSS/HTML. It would also be nice if it was a play icon without the ring, or if the color could be changed. Edit: I’d like to thank the developer for the helpful response. Though, it’d be nice if that information was documented somewhere.”.Version: 2.0.58

Great app for med school, but recently not as responsive...I have a 2017 iPad Pro, and by far this is the best app investment I’ve made as of yet. I always use notability in split screen mode with anki and there were no problems when reviewing flash cards. However, today when I went to review my cards it isn’t a simple tap on the anki app to show the answer. Now I have to tap multiple times, sometimes 4 or 5 times, to get to the answer and move on to the next card. I used to be able to use the Apple Pencil, tap once, and move on. It seems to be slightly better with finger touch(but still takes about 4 times of continuous tapping). Also if I change the orientation of the screen it seems to be slightly more responsive but not a complete fix. I shutdown my iPad, closed the apps, put anki separate from notability, but still experience problems. Some help on that would be nice. Otherwise, excellent app!.Version: 2.0.41

The (online) classroom study companion you needI messed around with Anki for free on PC and the web for awhile in the midst of intermittent language self-study periods, always thinking I would find just the right deck to really kick my learning into high gear. Unfortunately, the decks I would find online seemed to be more miss than hit, even for things you would think would be pretty standard. In any case, I never got to the point of using it enough that I felt it would be worth paying for the iOS version... That is, until I started taking a real course online from a reputable language school. Now, just having a running deck where I can add whatever it is that I need to memorize for current and upcoming lessons, I’m starting to reap the benefits and have decided to plunk down the cash to support it. I’m sure I’ll get more than my money’s worth as I progress further and the new material starts to pile up!.Version: 2.0.65

It’s 2023: Integrate Anki into Apple WatchI can’t think of a better device I’d love to use Anki on than the Apple Watch. Especially the larger screen size ones available in 2023. When I'm at work or on the go I can’t pull my phone out just to look at a flash cards but I already glance at and fidget with my watch 1000 times a day. I was told Anki would need a lot of engineering to work on Apple Watch but all we really need on the watch is a very minimalist way to view cards. Obviously we don’t need to edit anything on the watch. How can we not get a stripped down version for quick viewing on Apple Watch. Please. Take my money. If you need an investor I’m willing to bank on it. Call me. Otherwise the mobile app is decent. When I accidentally click on the screen after revealing the answer it progresses to the next flash card without a way to go back. I hadn’t finished reading/processing the last slide but now I have to move on. No clue how to go back..Version: 2.0.90

The Most Important App on My PhoneThanks Anki for all you do. As someone who never pays for apps, I quickly realized this was easily worth the money. Having your personally crafted flashcards on mobile to use during ANY brief downtime (waiting in line) is front loading your brain to connect the ideas later while it’s in diffuse mode. I have decks for language learning, geography, flags, new vocabulary, and top book highlights so far. The picture and audio on flashcards shows up and works great on the phone so far. I like how easy it is to edit a flashcards on mobile if you want to change something. The design is simple and that is a truly good thing in my opinion. It reminds me of the 90s, not only the design but making a one time payment for a good program. When first setting up a second device, I was asked a few times if I wanted to overwrite the Anki on my device or the Anki on my cloud, and I had to do this a few times on the desktop version. But now it’s seamless and whether I’m on phone or laptop I just remember to sync what I’ve done and it’s a quick moment before both devices are synced up. Locking in my world geography, recent reading highlights, and the most frequent 625 words in a new language is what Anki is doing for me in the first couple of weeks using it..Version: 2.0.48

Great appWasn't too sure at first about purchasing, but the app is definitely worth it as it increases time you can spend studying. I did wish it had more editing options but otherwise it's great. Edit: after using this app for a few months (and after using the desktop version almost every day for the past 4 months months) I definitely would still rate this app a 5/5 (or even a 6/5 if I could). Anki is an insanely useful study tool and I can’t recommend it enough, for whatever it is that you want to study. The UI could be a little prettier, but it grows on you eventually. Definitely get this app if you spend parts of your day idling (on a bus, in a subway, away from your computer, etc.) because it will improve your efficiency. If you’re on the fence, know that people don’t rave about anki without reason..Version: 2.0.38

Powerful, customizable study toolI wish I’d started using this earlier in my language learning efforts. The mobile app is worth the price, but the desktop version is also fantastic (and slightly easier to navigate). I like to create and review from the phone but sort/organize and edit on the desktop. As a spoken language learner, this is so useful for collecting new vocabulary words, using picture or written prompts, making recordings of correct pronunciation (for each word if desired), and keeping recordings of stories. I also like the “cloze” card template for quizzing myself on irregular plurals. I’ve found the system still works well even with non-Latin script. One tip: READ THE MANUAL FIRST. So much can be helped/avoided by getting a sense for the wide range of customizable features..Version: 24.04

1 Stars didn’t bother reading the manualI have been using Anki and AnkiMobile for 9 months now. First off it has a huge learning curve, but that is typical for any application that puts any real power in the hands of the user. Anki does exactly as advertised. I am not going to explain what that is, but all the 1 star reviews almost exclusively demonstrate the user did not read the manual or expected Anki to be a stay on the rails single faceted type of learning app. It isn’t. What it is is an app that allows you to create your own learning environment(s) that YOU tailor for YOUR learning needs. This app is fantastic for memorizing large amounts of single pieces of information whether that’s language study, or medical knowledge or whatever is appropriate for a managed flash card style of learning. The only thing I would have changed, and I DID recommend it on the support board, is to move deck ordering option to deck options rather than it being a global setting. I have decks I want to see new cards first and other decks I want to see new cards after reviews. The developer responded that it sounds like a good idea and he’ll think about that. That limitation however does not warrant knocking down a star. So 5 stars.Version: 2.0.44

Pretty goodI love the anki ecosystem. For school this is a must if you have an iPhone or iPad, along with a laptop to use the actual app. If you consistently use anki, get the app. I do wish however the scratchpad for when using an iPad could be snapped to the left or right of the screen, instead of only the bottom. It would eliminate the need for using another app to draw while you study. Also some different colors would be cool but I can’t ask for too much. Although it is slower than drawing directly in the app. I think even implementing excali draw would be cool. Also since this app is so expensive, I feel like a dedicated suggestion setting somewhere in the menu would be cool so I don’t have to write a review to make a suggestion..Version: 2.0.87

Great App, needs improvementsI am currently using this app for school. It is a great concept and has helped me learn a lot of information quickly. However, I do have a few suggestions: 1) I would really enjoy the ability to add subjects into folders. For example, after I am tested on a set of subjects I would like to be able to place them in an “old tests” folder. That way it is off of my main screen and reduces clutter. 2) It would be nice to have the option to create collaborative decks. Sharing a deck with a friend is possible, but it does not automatically update across all devices when cards are added. Even when you synchronize the cards, it only updates to the one account, not all accounts the deck has been shared with. 3) It is not possible to reset a deck on the iPad app. You have to go into the computer app to reset a study schedule. 4) I have not been able to share just one deck at a time. When I share something, it shares all of my decks. It also replaces the collection of the person I share the decks with. Just one subject at a time would be nice. 5) it would be nice to have more themes. A black mode would be nice in order to minimize blue light exposure. For $25 it seems like there would be a little more customization available..Version: 2.0.42

Yeah... this app is a lifechanger.This app has given me my confidence back. I no longer have to worry about forgetting things that I learned throughout the day. This is not just a regular flashcard app. All of the other flashcard apps out there may have a few small functions like cloze deletions or audio support. But Anki has EVERYTHING. It has images, audio, cloze deletions, language, autosync, keyboard shortcuts (for those of us who like to use a keyboard with the iphone), LaTeX support (which is imperative for ppl studying anything mathematically related), addons that give you the ability to automatically insert language audio (AwesomeTTS), addons that let you automatically generate pinyin for Chinese characters, addons that let you modify any and every part of your anki experience..Version: 2.0.40

Responsive and meshes very well with Migaku JapaneseThis app is absolutely worth the money in my opinion. I had been using AnkiApp for a while to learn Japanese - using a shared audio deck from AnkiApp, but once i started my own desktop mining deck I couldn’t get it from my computer to my phone. In addition, that other app did not handle audio correctly so it would significantly lag after just a few cards, and when exiting the app and coming back. A huge advantage this app has over AnkiApp is that it lets you sync to your AnkiWeb account. So now i can make cards on my desktop on the fly and sync it right with the app which is great. Not only is this app very responsive and feature rich, but one thing also really pleasantly surprised me: My custom deck that uses the Migaku(MIA) Japanese plugin on my desktop works flawlessly. This cannot be a coincidence. They must have intentionally coded this functionality in. As such, the furigana and pitch accent highlighting are perfect, even the fonts are preserved. If you are on the fence about this and you are also a Japanese learner (especially if you’re using MattvsJapan’s anki workflow), you should totally get this.Version: 2.0.69

Best Flashcard System AvailableI know that a $20 price tag seems a little daunting for a mobile app, but I guarantee you that you will get your money back tenfold in the value of this app. When it comes to memorization systems, there is no better app than Anki. Aki uses spaced repetition and a flashcards system to help users memorize information for long-term. I use this app for medical school all the time, it is the gold standard for memorizing topics. Not to mention, this app syncs perfectly with the desktop version of Anki. If you are already an Anki user I highly recommend that you purchase this app both to support the developers and so that you have access to a great mobile Anki experience..Version: 2.0.87

In need of some updates.A great app overall, I’m incredibly thankful for the developer and all their hard work. I’ve used the app for several years to excel in my clinical doctorate program. That said, I’d like to a way to pin favorited actions to the actual notes screen to remove the extra step of clicking the settings icon. Sounds silly, but this actually takes a chunk of time when reviewing hundreds of cards daily. I’m constantly “marking / burying” cards on my iPad … deleting / editing these on my Mac afterwards for ease. This way I’m constantly improving / culling my cards over time. Pinning the actions would really improve this workflow. Regardless, buy the app! It’s an incredibly useful tool..Version: 2.0.75

Well worthWell worth the price as you can inconspicuously flex on your coworkers of how monstrously superior your giga chad brain is. Simply pull up the app in the elevator and all who see the app will be awestruck and speechless. Works every time, not a peep can be heard. I guess I really do exude a that kind of alpha presence. And in case anyone was curious, I’m currently using Anki to learn how to communicate with computers using electricity. So far I’ve already finished binary, assembly, and the html language. I’m always harassed by my coworkers to focus on the job but little do they know I’m building an AI that will render our job obsolete. Be on the lookout for a major disruption in the janitorial services market. The name is ThePrimeagen 🫵🏻.Version: 2.0.96

The originalThis is the original and by far the best flash card app. It’s the ONLY open source, community driven spaced repetition platform. Don’t be fooled by the imitation apps trying to sell you stuff. The open source nature of Anki ensures against predatory behavior. This app costs so much because it’s the only source of income the developer is asking for. He doesn’t even have a patron. The developer offers a cloud service and windows/Mac/Linux desktop clients completely free of charge. If you can’t afford the price of this app you can use the cloud platform for free (Ankiweb) on mobile which gives you basic functionality, and you can download the desktop client for the full experience for free..Version: 2.0.59

Love it for the most partI originally bought this app to support the devs, so I didn’t have much high hopes for it base on all the reviews. The app turned out to be very helpful and I loved it for the most part, especially the scratch pad. The only negative thing I have to say is the image problem. Originally all of my images were synced perfectly. But after couple weeks of use, the white part of some of my images disappeared. Not sure if it has anything to do with data being lost during sync. I tried to sync it multiple times but still not fixed. This potentially could lead to more problems in the future..Version: 2.0.79

Life changingI started out using Anki only for learning languages but I now use it for all aspects of my life. Read a nice quote in a book? Put it in Anki. A term I don’t understand in Wall Street Journal? Anki. A new type of cuisine I tasted in France? Anki. It allows me to record and remember all the small things that may otherwise go to oblivion without repetition. I now have a dozen decks and tens of thousands of cards, and I spend at least 2 hours per day on this app. This is not the prettiest app and it will not work for you out of the box. And occasionally it is buggy. But it is hyper customizable, and for super power users like me, it is life changing.Version: 23.10

Life-changingIt never ceases to amaze me that this app doesn’t have 5 stars. Anki is an extraordinarily powerful learning tool if you take the time to understand it. Learn how to use it on your computer first for free (and use the website when you want to use it on the go), and then when you’ve proven your own dedication to using it daily, download this app. *Edit* 7/9/21 Still an absolutely amazing app. From my browsing of the negative reviews, the vast majority are the result of “user error”. If you’re confused, try searching for a solution online before you leave an angry review that makes you look incompetent..Version: 2.0.75

It’s a great app but it misses a very important feature!I am a medical student who preferred to buy an iPad over a laptop and i did not hesitate to spend 25$ on this app because of how it greatly helps but when my anatomy block started i couldn’t really use Anki for all of that information all due to not having the “image occlusion” feature to make flashcards out of photos as it completely changes the way you study on anatomy, there is this feature already but it’s a third party and apple does not allow it, adding this feature is greatly appreciated and honestly that’s the only reason i rated this app a 4..Version: 2.0.74

The gold standard of flashcard programsIf you are in middle school and you are looking for a quick way to memorize 25 words for your Spanish test, Quizlet is far simpler to learn. If you are a medical student and need a way to learn 25,000 cards for your USMLE step 1 exam, the Anki system (create/share cards on the computer app, review on this mobile app) is the way. Wherever you fall between these two extreme cases, it is nice to have options. I spend about an hour a day on Anki, and having an efficient mobile app to fill a 5 minute wait here and there is awesome..Version: 2.0.87

Great value.I hate spending money and have never purchased an app before now. I used the desktop version for a couple months to see if this was something I really wanted. It is. The $25 deal is a great value, especially when you think of it as completing your access to the Anki system. I’m happy to invest in the development of this program, and having it on my phone really helps me stick with my study goals. You can absolutely get by with just the desktop version. But if you have a little money to spend, I recommend the investment..Version: 2.0.87

Best in Class, Needs some bug-fixesThis app is undoubtedly one of the best study tools on the market. That being said, there are some annoyances that, when fixed, could make this app realize perfection. The new browse function that has replaced the find function is also quite amazing! This change gives the mobile version a more desktop feel, without the clutter. 1. Multitasking is a mess: When multitasking, the app will often crash, or when it doesn’t the text boxes are no long completely in view, same for the preview section. Restarting the app fixes this, but this is not a reliable solution since it happens 100% of the time. 2. New Browse tab: The column space allocation is much too skewed. Either give the users the ability to change how much space each column takes up, or make it 50/50. 3. Keyboard shortcuts: It seems as though some of these have been removed. Bold, italics, and underline are all non-functional with external keyboards anymore. Copy/Cut/Paste still work though..Version: 2.0.49

Thankful for this appI have been using this app pretty much every day for almost 3 years now. In all seriousness, I would happily pay 10 times the amount of money that this app actually costs. As a learner of a obscure language this has simplified the process for me in ways I can't overstate. I highly recommend this app to anyone who is serious about learning a foreign language. Just keep up with it every day. If you miss a day, get back on it. If you fall behind a few days, just get caught up. It's worth it. You will learn that language if you use this app..Version: 2.0.96

Incredibly overpriced and hard to useI 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..Version: 2.0.92

It is a great tool.I mainly use it for language learning, however there isn’t really many other flashcard apps that are this fleshed out, and oftentimes subscriptions on other flashcard apps can total out to be more expensive than this one-time purchase, while offering less functionality. It is also a fantastic companion for the PC Anki. If you wish to learn a language, or would generally like to memorize really anything using spaced repetition, this could potentially be a great app for you. As for the UI, I personally find it comfortable and functional. It feels designed in such a way so that little distracts from the flashcards themselves, and there are no ads (as there shouldn’t be in an app of this price). Overall, I definitely recommend it if you are willing to shell out the money, and if you are often out and about lacking a great connection, but the PC counterpart is free, so I recommend checking that out first..Version: 2.0.87

Great tool for learningAs you will likely see in our reviews, the UI definitely has room for improvement. However, the functionality of the app works well and as described in the App Store. At this point, it seems best to set up your decks in the desktop app and use the mobile app as an on-the-go study tool. My decks sync flawlessly with the mobile version. For a mobile app, $25 is more than most apps out there to start but the functionality is really good, spaced repetition is a great way to learn, and I’m willing to see how the developers improve the apps moving forward..Version: 2.0.70

Absolutely amazing tool!I've been using this app to study the 2,300 Japanese kanji that is in a book I have and I'm loving it so far! The fact that I can take pictures of the symbols in the book helps tremendously also! Halfway as I began using it, I began fiddling with the online decks that people made and some are amazing with actual speech integrated into the cards as well as pictures. Then I opened my mind even further and realized I can use this for many other subjects that I want to improve on! Overall an invaluable tool for people wanted long term memorization of certain information!!.Version: 2.0.34

Good, but quirksAnki is well made. The program runs smoothly if you DON’T use any other apps in conjunction. As soon as you run it in split mode with other app (like notability), it is quite buggy. It won’t type at times, cursor would be missing, bold and italicize unintentionally pressed and so forth. I don’t regret paying for it, but the bug issue in split screen mode is definitely something you should be aware of. *EDIT: I have no idea how to suggest improvements on the website, but here’s what I found out. When trying to add a new card in a deck, if I hit left or right arrow on the keyboard when nothing is typed yet, Bold gets activated and the cursor disappears. Hope it gets fixed.. it is quite annoying.Version: 2.0.38

Still the best after a decadeBest $25 i spent a decade ago. I have studied for so many exams with this, and still reference those notes. Used it as a “zettlekasten” before i’d ever heard the word or contemporary apps existed for that. I’ve tried all the newer spaced repetition apps that have links and back references or incorporate note taking with flashcard making, but for me, anki is superior for its specific use case. I have come to the conclusion that nothing beats anki for spaced repetition, and for me, nothing is more effective for studying than making dedicated notecards and using the anki approach to study. The app itself is well maintained with frequent updates, it works perfectly, and notwithstanding the slightly outdated sync approach, the sync works well across all my devices. I appreciate its customization ability and how i can utilise metadata in my spaced repetition review. I’m glad to have come back around to using Anki.Version: 2.0.92

Wow1) Spaced repetition is super effective. This app takes care of the when-to-review-again scheduling work for you, so all you have to do is the study part. This is so convenient and the main draw of the app for me. 2) Cloze deletion. It’s like fill-in-the-blank but better. 3) You can make it so you have to type the answer, which is especially helpful for verifying spelling or making sure you know definitions word-for-word. 4) You can insert pictures and audio into the flashcards, which I imagine is helpful for more visual things you have to memorize and for learning languages. 5) LaTeX compatibility. No more awkward text math like v^2=((v0)^2)+2a(x-x0). No more using a ton of parentheses to ensure that you are squaring the variable v0 (usually shown as v subscript 0) and NOT squaring 0. You can make the math look neat and easy to read, like it does in textbooks. And if you don’t want to learn LaTeX, you still have access to superscripts and subscripts. 10/10 would use Anki again.Version: 2.0.67

Images don’t show upSpent $34 on this to be able to study on the go but basically pointless without the images.Version: 2.0.67

IMAGES DONT SHOWFrustrating to pay so much and not have the images show..Version: 2.0.79

The best reason for having a smart phoneAnki at $35 is a lot cheaper than FlappyFarm at a buck. How valuable is the ability to retain everything you've ever learned? Note: the Anki app really has to be used in conjunction with the Anki desktop program..Version: 2.0.35

SolidMy biggest gripe is that I need to sync manually. Also, it seems it’s not possible to delete card types from the app. You can delete decks, but not the card types that a deck may have created. Otherwise it’s a great app. The learning curve is quite steep though. The onboarding experience could have been better, especially for an app that costs more than $30 CAD. A simple in-app tutorial would suffice..Version: 2.0.83

ありがとうございますBeen using Anki PC for a month and decided it’s time to support the dev. Thanks to Anki, it looks like my Japanese might finally be taking off this time!.Version: 2.0.87

The original oneDon’t be confused by AnkiApp jumping in on the brand.Version: 2.0.42

Perfect for medical fellowshipUsed this for me allergy and immunology fellowship. Spent the first year with data entry and the second year reviewing the flash cards. This is perfect for those few minutes you have interspersed throughout the day - waiting to review a case , before lecture starts, right before bed. Passed my fellowship with ease ( and won an award at one of our social knowledge competition). For serious hardcore studies this is the way to go. Note that this is not useful for the occasional course or quick academic study. As mentioned took me a little less than a year to make the cards.Version: 2.0.87

The official app, you’d expect moreYes, you cant put a price on learning on the go, its pretty much priceless. This app is supposed to be a companion app of sorts—you set up everything you need on the desktop and really only use this to study your cards that’s it. Simple enough, but for some god forsaken reason you can’t synchronize your decks in the background—if you start synchronizing and you begin to use a different app it times out the connection… Then you have to start it again from where you left off, and leave your phone on the screen until you’re done. I’m aware it’s open source, but for christ’s sake for the money I just spent on this I’d imagine it is not that hard to simply move the update process in the background as I use the phone?? I get development is limited, so I hope there’s a way I can add this myself..Version: 23.12.1

Worth the money. Smooth experience between mobile and desktop.I’m a university student and I do 90% of my studying on the toilet and on the bus. This is an amazingly efficient use of time that would not be possible without the mobile app! Worth every penny..Version: 2.0.83

UnsuscribeCould you please share with me the process to unsubscribe to Anki mobile(pay version) I am not able to find the way to stop the subscription Thanks.Version: 2.0.80

Wow, Anki is such a game changer!!!I can’t believe I only recently discovered Anki. There is no better learning tool, and it’s never been more convenient than from this mobile app. Incredible stuff. If you ask me, it’s priceless, so $35 or whatever is completely worth it..Version: 2.0.72

QuestionIs it 34 a month?? I thought I was a one time purchase which felt hefty but was nothing to every single month!.Version: 2.0.87

By far my most used appIf you are learning a language or any other subject, Anki is the best way to learn and review your learning material. The learning curve can be a little steep but once you have understood the basics, it’s enough to get started. Yes the app seems expensive, but it’s by far the most used app on my phone. I have used Anki around an hour per day for the past several years, so the price works out at a cent or less per day..Version: 24.04

Life changing appAnki is the basis of my studies in university, but I would love it if the card browser was more powerful and independent from the computer version, especially on the iPad..Version: 24.04

Good but no bulleted lists featureI bought this app on my IPad so i could take notes during lectures and because I couldn’t carry my laptop with me as it was too heavy. Was really disappointed to realize that you couldn’t make bulleted lists on the IOS app because it’s how I usually make my notes. Would really appreciate it if this feature could be added. Besides this, it works great and hasn’t given me any issues..Version: 23.10

AwesomeSyncs perfectly with the desktop version, completely worth the $35. This app makes studying on the go extremely easy, though the more complex cards are probably displayed better on desktop. For learning languages at least, this app is perfect.Version: 23.12.1

Unreasonably ExpensiveThis apps price is so ridiculously high. But it’s a great app..Version: 23.12.1

Great with some setbacksCan't seem to enable compatibility with certain older decks as I was able to on PC. Otherwise has to my knowledge the same functionality as the desktop version. I debated buying it for a while which was a waste of time, it's too useful an app if you are into this kind of studying..Version: 2.0.96

Anki is greatI use Anki daily and recommend it for learning and memorization..Version: 23.10

Is there an option to flip the card?Hi, I’ve been using Anki for a very long time and it’s my go-tool when it comes to learning new vocabulary and improve my English. In the older version, there was a option to flip the card once you’d learned it but in this version I can’t seem to find it. That’s the most important feature of the app! Please advice how can I do it seamlessly without constant coping and pasting the text from one side of the card to another. Thank you.Version: 2.0.96

Sync problemI’ve been trying to sync my Mac and iPhone but every time I try to sync it says to “Check Database”. I checked the database on my phone and my laptop but it keeps saying the same thing. I also tried to full sync just like the warning said but it didn’t work either. But other than that it's a really useful app to memorize class materials. Edit: It took almost half an hour but I solved the problem..Version: 2.0.82

Mostly works, but keep backupsThe functionality works most of the time, but I have found synchronizing between my desktop app to sometimes delete decks or cards.Version: 2.0.95

Worth the money!There are a few minor images/videos that don’t work immediately, but the overwhelming majority do. In the span of a month I have used this app for so much studying; it’s extremely convenient, simple to use and has a cute interface. Highly recommend using this alongside the desktop version! So happy with my purchase thus far..Version: 2.0.92

Best appAnyone else if you see ankipro that is a scam. This app is the official app from the Anki team..Version: 2.0.92

Best Spaced Repetition Learning AppBeen using this app for years to help in learning a language. While there is a learning curve and a premium price this app is worth every penny in the long run..Version: 2.0.87

GreatBeen using this app for almost 2 years along with the desktop application. Works great..Version: 2.0.87

Awesome app for learnersHands down the greatest app for med students. Should be a no brainer. However it would be great if we can add the card preview function for iPad so it’s easier to search for cards in the browser..Version: 2.0.87

Pretty good!Worth it..Version: 2.0.83

Great appThis app is super powerful! I recommend it very highly! I have always struggled with memorizing key terms is school since I have ADHD and it’s hard to focus at times. But this app has improved my ability to memorize astronomically. It is well worth the money, I recommend it to everyone who wants to remember a lot of terms effectively..Version: 2.0.83

AmazingA bit pricey but 100% worth it, especially to help keep the servers running. far and away the best flashcard app out there and a necessity for language learning..Version: 2.0.83

Not a desktop replacementMissing a lot of desktop features but ok when you are on the go. The card browser needs a lot of work. Also it zooms in slightly when you switch between apps and you can’t zoom back out. Not sure what that is about..Version: 2.0.80

10/10 I recommend this app to everybody!!Don’t listen to the other reviews saying images don’t load. Images load perfectly. I use this app when I’m walking or away from my computer. It’s a trivial investment price for getting good grades..Version: 2.0.81
