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.
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 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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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-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.
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
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
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
Incredible!Wonderful app with great support by the developer. Very quick to respond to any suggestions or bugs you run into. Indispensable for reviewing and retaining information.
I’m not sure if this is a bug or intended feature, but filtering in the browser now interprets spaces as characters instead of AND modifiers. e.g. typing in “Biochem PKU” will now pull results for the exact phrase, where as previously it would pull results from “Biochem” AND “PKU”.
You can’t even use modifiers in the filter dialogue box! This is a terrible change which makes the app immeasurable more difficult if you are a person with many many tags..Version: 2.0.74
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
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
Browser?Before making the suggestion, I’d just like to acknowledge the tremendous help Anki has brought to my and my fellow medical students’ study. This is one of the best way for people that are not so bright (like myself) to do well in medicine.
Now on to the suggestion for the mobile App: is it possible to add in the browser function to iOS? The browser is the like a God’s view of all of the cards but unfortunately on iOS version it’s very truncated, and therefore when doing slightly advanced edits (e.g. changing templates for a given card) we have to turn to a computer.
Thank you! Keep up the wonder that you guys are creating!.Version: 2.0.67
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
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
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
Wonderful program!I’ve used Anki a ton in the past and learned *so* much, so I decided to take the plunge on this app. Everything works well, the interface is simple yet intuitive, and the sync is nigh instantaneous. Phenomenal!
The price point on this app is only steep until you realize that it’s a way to support the development of Anki as a whole while also getting some extra benefits. I’m very happy to support the dev team, this program has improved my knowledge acquisition by a hundredfold!!!! Cannot recommend enough..Version: 2.0.78
AmazingIf you’re a medical student that uses Anki at all, just download the app. It’s so nice to be able to get through some reviews while you’re waiting in line at the store, or just sitting on the couch and don’t have your laptop. Sometimes when I am bored and on my phone, I’ll just tap the Anki icon. Then, I’m doing something productive without really thinking about it. The app is great for those times when getting up to get your laptop requires too much motivation. Makes studying for boards a little less depressing..Version: 2.0.69
Great app!! Worth the money, but no shuffle option??I used to use Anki years ago for Japanese study. Just recently picked it up again for Arabic, and it’s great. Now that there is a computer program, app, and online version that all sync, you can use it pretty much anywhere.
I was kind of shocked to find out there was no simple way to shuffle your deck when you’re reviewing. With all the special functions there are, you would think this would be one of them. Apparently you need to do a whole process to create a filtered deck to do this. Would definitely give 5 stars if a shuffle button was added!.Version: 2.0.64
Decent appThe app is indeed clean of bugs except for backup configuration where backups number looses its value every couple of days and clogs my phone with unwanted excessive copies. This issue has been in the app for at least half a year now.
Another complaint is that the responsiveness of cards is slow sometimes: there is sometimes almost 1 sec between tapping and the text of the card actually appearing. This is a very disappointing thing because otherwise the app speed is good
Other than that, the app is quite nice and the anki system itself is of course great.Version: 2.0.58
Great for Languages!I really love this app and the way it works. It’s super useful for memorizing words and grammar, and I don’t really have anything bad to say about it. The only thing that I think would be an amazing addition would be if there was a feature that would let you flip the info on the cards, so the words on the back would be on the front and vice versa. I know personally it would help me with my memory to shake things up, and it’s just a bit tiring to make two decks for the same information. If Anki could make this happen, I’d be so grateful!.Version: 2.0.67
The only way to studyMost effective way to study. Was hard to reason spending 25$ on an iphone app but it’s so worth it. Plus, it’s money spent on improving your grade and your education, not a video game or new shoes or some other materialistic thing. I make my flashcards on my computer, there’s an free addon called Image Occlusion which i highly recommend if you’re studying anatomy so you can block the labels the organs and then reveal them for the answer. Also works good for flowcharts. Went from being a C- student to a B+ student just with bare minimum time using this app. Thanks Anki!.Version: 2.0.38
I’m very annoyed 😖I shied away from buying this app because of the price. I use Anki everyday on my computer and figured I should make the investment. I purchased the app to use on my iPad. I followed the instructions in the manual. I synced my decks only to discovered that my images didn’t sync . I have the cards with questions but can’t check correctness of my answers since I can’t see images on the card. I have the option checked to allow importing of sound and image. I have synced several times but it didn’t work. I paid $25 for this app (the most I’ve ever paid for any app) I need this fixed ASAP please and then I can raise my review rating from 3 stars..Version: 2.0.67
Wish to give it a higher rating, but...Just based on the function (and perhaps it’s just me), this app has not been doing it’s job properly. (1) I’ve consistently seen cards the next day when i’ve touched the button for 2+ days. (2) Even if I touch the button for 1+ days (let’s say it was “good” for 5 days), I see the same card again a few minutes. They’re just inconveniences, but enough that I only use the app if I don’t have many cards due because I don’t want to waste time going through twice the number of cards because they keep reappearing. Hopefully this gets fixed or my issue gets cleared up so I can continue using the app! :).Version: 2.0.38
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
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
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
The original oneDon’t be confused by AnkiApp jumping in on the brand.Version: 2.0.42
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
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
Très utileExcellente application pour réviser les mots ou autres de manière très efficace.Version: 2.0.87
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
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
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
Memory improvedI couldnt get high scores without this.Version: 2.0.83
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
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
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
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
Anki is awesomeI use the mobile anki app to do my reviews on the go when I’m not at home. I never use the mobile version to create cards. Anki desktop is truly amazing and has so many settings, features and flexibility. If I was the developers I would make the mobile app with less features since you can do that on the desktop version..Version: 2.0.80
Good but...Let us see old stats page.Version: 2.0.72
Excellent!J’utilise cette application pour apprendre une langue. Un peu difficile a bien prendre en main au début mais tout est bien expliqué sur leur site internet en plus d’être traduit en plusieurs langues. Le principale avantage avec Anki est d’être capable de modifier et de faire à peu près n’importe quoi comme cartes.
Cependant avec d’acheter, essayer la version pour ordinateur qui est gratuite.
De mon côté, j’ai eu un petit bug de traduction. Je me sert de cette app pour apprendre le japonais. Après quelques jours a avoir fait et pratiquées des cartes en symboles japonais certaines parties de l’app est aussi devenue en japonais sans rien que je fasse. Ça ne me dérange pas parce que ça me fait pratiquer un peu plus..Version: 2.0.76
AwesomeIt’s a really good app. I haven’t had any problems with it so far. If you’re having trouble with the images, just sync on your computer and then sync on the app to see the images..Version: 2.0.72
I cannot set the interval modifier for reviews lower than 50I am able to do this on the desktop app however. Five stars otherwise..Version: 2.0.70
Makes learning so much easierThe ability to learn anything, quickly. Seriously life changing.Version: 2.0.70
Fabulous program, great learning toolI use this every day. I have Anki on my laptop, and this on my iPad. I sync back and forth between the two.
One advantage with this iPad app that I don’t see in the desktop version of Anki is that I can draw stuff. Here I can easily add drawings to the front or back of any card. Super useful!.Version: 2.0.67
AmoAmo o Anki..Version: 2.0.67
Use the App for Memorization, but some flawsI use the app to memorize my flashcards and create them on my computer. What I realized from using the app, is that the only images that are supported are png images. Jpeg images show up as a small white box (not visible). Also the syncing between anki on my computer and on my phone is skewed. For example, on my computer it said that I had 90 cards to review from my deck. I synced it, and closed anki on there. I then opened anki on my phone, synced on there, and it showed that there was only 50 cards to review.
There are some other minor issues, but those are the biggest ones. If you could fix those, I will definitely raise my rating to 5 stars..Version: 2.0.67

Excellent app, wholeheartedly recommendedI’ve been using Anki for years between iOS, Windows, web, etc. Thank you for providing an awesome product/service for all these years!.Version: 2.0.54
Grey theme gone in newest updateI love the app and use it daily, couldn’t live without it, however, the most recent update got rid of the grey options for theme. White is too bright and black is too stark... can you bring back the Gerry option?.Version: 2.0.54
