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.

  • No undo button??

    By ماهر...
    It’s annoying that I have to shake my phone every time I press a button by mistake.. add an undo button ..
  • Greatest flash card app ever, but small issues.

    By user284683
    It can’t sync automatically in the background, so cross device experience is a little bit painful.
  • Does the number of cards on do on the app not sink to my laptop account?

    By orangecatlola
    Other than that everything is great
  • Want to give it five stars but bury cards doesn’t work

    By yostarbuck
    I love this app but the “bury new siblings” and “bury review siblings “ setting doesn’t work no matter what I do, which leaves me reviewing hundreds of extra cards. I don’t know how to fix it.
  • Amazing platform, just one problem with app

    By Jitanned
    I’ve used Anki for languages for years. Before, you could receive a notification at a certain time every day that reminded you to study. However, it doesn’t work anymore unless you have the app open in the background. I don’t know what happened because it would work without having it in the background. Could you add a push notification feature or something?
  • For the cost a ugly looking app

    By Stevogtz
    It’s the original Anki app and platform. Screw the the other ones. The developer rarely updates the app though and even though the sync works for the most part very well it’s just very expensive for what it really is.
  • Amazingly overpriced

    By Nycgold86
    Very basic functionality and a circa 1999 GUI.
  • Superb app but without Apple Shortcuts support

    By AnkiWizard
    While the computer program is free, this app is worth the price to support the small development team. I use Anki and this app religiously and the synchronization between computer, iPad, and iPhone is fantastic. One small feature I wish the development team would add is support for synchronization in Apple Shortcuts; it would be ideal to be able to run an automation that synchronizes the app both in the morning and at night to ensure that the reviews are perfectly synced between computer and other devices.
  • The Best

    By NSDmitry
    Anki helped me on my journey to B1 German. Thx to Anki I got 4000 words in my brain, many more to come!
  • Great app port

    By jonahspear512
    I have found this mobile version to work really well and have almost all the functionality of the desktop app. Congrats to the developer team; they’ve done a great job here.
