AnkiMobile Flashcards

AnkiMobile Flashcards download

AnkiMobile is a mobile companion to Anki, a powerful, intelligent flashcard program that is free, multi-platform, and open-source. Sales of this app support the development of both the computer and mobile version, which is why the app is priced as a computer application.

AnkiMobile offers some features not found in other flashcard apps:

- A free cloud synchronization service that lets you keep your card content synchronized across multiple mobile and computer devices. This makes it easy to add content on a computer and then study it on your mobile, easily keep your study progress current between an iPhone and iPad, and so on.
- The same proven scheduling algorithm that the computer version of Anki uses, which reminds you of material as you're about to forget it.
- A flexible interface designed for smooth and efficient study. You can set up AnkiMobile to perform different actions when you tap or swipe on various parts of the screen, and control which actions appear on the tool buttons.
- Comprehensive graphs and statistics about your studies.
- Support for large card decks - even 100,000+ cards.
- If your cards use images or audio clips, the media is stored on your device, so you can study without an internet connection.
- A powerful search facility that allows you to find cards that match criteria such as 'tagged high priority, answered in the last ten days and not containing the following words', and automatically place them into a deck to study.
- Support for displaying mathematical equations that were added with LaTeX in the desktop software, and ruby text above Asian languages.

Please note that AnkiMobile is currently intended as a companion to the computer version of Anki, rather than a complete replacement for it. While AnkiMobile is able to display your cards in the same way the computer version does, certain changes like modifying note types need to be done with the computer software. For this reason, please familiarize yourself with the computer version of Anki before you think about buying this app.

Please also note that while you can use almost any language on your cards, AnkiMobile's user interface is only available in English at the moment.

Aside from the cloud synchronization service, AnkiMobile also supports copying decks to and from your device via the USB cable and iTunes.

Like all apps, AnkiMobile can be purchased once and then used on multiple devices in a household using the same Apple ID. Family sharing is also supported. For information on bulk discounts for educational institutions, please see

AnkiMobile Flashcards Reviews


Images not syncing  medstudent760  3 star

I love Anki, but the images from my image occlusion cards aren’t syncing on my iOS devices, which is pretty annoying. Worked perfectly fine before - would be great to get a fix!


Great app. Very ugly logo.  grayson_ghw  4 star

Some people care about aesthetics I am one of them The app is very good The logo is too ugly for the price

Kitty litter 123

Please make this FEATURE  Kitty litter 123  5 star

I love this so much. I wanna suggest if it’s possible ... if say you made 4 pile of decks and you don’t know which deck you should get started reviewing on that day, Anki can somehow tells you which Pile of decks you are weak on and which pile of decks you are strong Or fairly ok on... so I can choose which decks to put my priorities & focus on over others.. Thanks


Please make OLED DARK MODE  SCASM  5 star

Please make a theme that can be used for those of us with iPhone X's to make it easier on our eyes when we study in bed at night. The more light you can remove from the screen, the better! Maybe even make it so the text becomes more gray colored rather than white. That will make this app perfect!!! Edit: I didn't know about the toggle night mode option, I only knew about the theme change to black. So this app is perfect then!


Worth the money!  DevWrd  5 star

I’ve been using this app for study Japanese and it works like a charm. It works great and is worth the money. Better than writing out flash cards. One feature that would make it tons better would be to have the option of flipping the front and back of the card so you can learn it the other way around.


[Almost] Perfect clone of the desktop version  TheDocBrock  5 star

This is probably the app I’ve used the most over the last year, (save for maybe Safari). It’s pretty much a clone of the desktop version functionality-wise, but it has the added convenience of being able to use it on your iPhone or iPad (or both in my case). A feature that I didn’t find on the iOS version is the ability to mass-reschedule cards, but I do that so infrequently it’s not even an issue. There are a couple other minor features missing in the app that are present in the latest Anki desktop release, but all of the core, important features and functionalities are in it, which is what matters. Definitely the best flash card app, and definitely worth the money.


It’s going to get me an MD  kunoichi_chicky  5 star

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


Like it but wish I could font  すギリ  3 star

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


Does Not Compare To PC Functionality  DoctahDave  3 star

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


Not worth the purchase  ArArAr94  1 star

I paid too much for this app, to not to be able to organize cards into folders. Even quizlet can do that in the free version. The app version is severely limited in features that the computer/laptop version has for FREE. So why did I even pay for this useless app?


Excellent app  MarkD001  5 star

Have had the Anki iPhone app for years now and continue to use it daily. Over time it’s continued to get better. It’s a no-brainer purchase for anyone looking for a good spaced-repetition app and has already used/is using the Anki desktop version. The sync between this app and the desktop version is the major drawcard. Being able to do reviews on-the-go is really handy. Hard to live without once you’ve gotten used to it. Highly recommended purchase!


Do not buy this app!!!!  hanson5818  1 star

If you are not good at computer, donot pay this app. It cost me $40, but very inconvenient. Once you reviewed the card. It will disappear and you can not review that again, also it is so complicated to edit the card on computer.


Great...  r10k  5 star

This isn’t a cheap app, but it’s simple and straightforward to do things like add words in the middle of study. Studying on the go is really easy.

Russell with a wiki

Not for me  Russell with a wiki  2 star

The much vaunted learning algorithm gets in the way more than it helps - a wrong tap means I won’t see a card for weeks, impeding my memorisation. I think I want a much simpler flash card app. One that will just cycle through cards and never, ever, ever hide a card because it thinks I already know that. Is there a way to configure Anki to do that? (I removed my comment about editing cards. Thank you for the correction.)


Best srs app !!  Ash19950  5 star

This app has best of functionality which i had been looking for and yet despite of lot of features packed it comes in a very simple and uncluttered UI. 👌🏻


Audio doesn’t sync  Allsdeapps  1 star

For $39AUD you think there would be active development to fix bugs. Lack of working audio on mobile is obviously something that is plaguing many users (simply google). It’s not worth the money and I’d like a refund.


Please add the ability to command-z  bai_mi  5 star

Very good app, only feature that is missing is the ability to command-z (for those using an iPad keyboard) for undo.


New update broke my deck  Littletray26  1 star

All the images on my cards have been deleted with this new updated. Tried restoring from a backup, and they're all deleted from the backup too. Tried doing a full one way sync, downloading from Ankiweb, and again all the images have been deleted. This has made my deck useless and left me with no way to fix it. For such an expensive app, this isn't acceptable and has left me really, really disheartened knowing I'll have to manually build my deck all over again from the start.

Supa Gama

Just Right  Supa Gama  5 star

I am happy with Anki. It does what I need it to do, and is perfect for on the go or in for intense study sessions. Overall great product, and I can't wait to see what further improvements are made.


Excellent app  Wanzulfikri  5 star

Replicates the desktop version making studying seamless between mobile and desktop.


100% Manipulative  chired  1 star

Their mandatory review limits are trash. Supposedly you can set the review limit to 9999 on the interface/ setting screen..... which doesn't even exist on this version of the app. yes, you can temp override the limits, but the overrides are weak, too. if you want to goof around like a little child or if you have time+++ to spend SLOWLY reviewing your decks, then enjoy this manipulative babysitter app.

Will N.

Works but not intuitive and could use some improvements  Will N.  4 star

I wish there was a way to select multiple decks for deletion. I wish there was an easier way to create sub-decks.


THE ONE for med school  ChaseTheRaysFan  5 star

Nothing better... 300 club lets go!!!


Best app ever  VAHID88  5 star

This is the best app i had on my iPhone, it runs smoothly even with hundreds of flashcards, i used this app 1hr a day to read my medical flashcards but recently i faced some problem, although i choose too display new card in order that i added, it skipped some of them(about 300 flashcards), would you please help me.


Great app BUT...why does it lower music volume??  Gkjxknvt  5 star

EDIT: Oops I'm just an idiot. There's a setting that was causing my issue. See the developer's response! I love Anki and the app is great for everything EXCEPT for the fact that it lowers the volume on any music I have playing from my phone. This is really infuriating cause when I'm studying in public I can't drown out the sounds around me. Well...why don't I just turn the volume up then you ask? If I exit the app or sleep my phone I get a very loud and large blast of music in my ear. It's just super inconvenient and I'm surprised that no one else has brought this issue up. I'll change my review to a 5 star review if this gets fixed TT


The only way to study  DeeDeexter  5 star

Most 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!


Difficult for beginners  Yngfr3sh  2 star

Very difficult to use. They should definitely think about a more user friendly interface and software!


Firehose  Fergbot  5 star

Anki is the only way to drink from a firehose without drowning.


Wish to give it a higher rating, but...  Naicisyhp  3 star

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! :)


Gold  J4142356  5 star

If you are a learner this is for you. I’ve learned Japanese and was able to speak almost fluently using this app. This app is so useful for learning anything. I payed $25 but would be willing to pay more.


Excellent  Sams101  5 star

Use it everyday.


Great! (^◇^)  Waynetta180  4 star

Great love it! But can u add furigana through the app?
