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 with MathJax, and rendering LaTeX created with the computer version.

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

Please also note that while you can use almost any language on your cards, AnkiMobile's user interface is only available in English and Simplified Chinese 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 Apple's Volume Purchase Program.

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

Samrat221b   5 star

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

Kingjameska   5 star

Best $25 I’ve ever spent. I used to try to use flash cards and notes but often never got around to studying them. I resisted using technology for studying for a long time. I felt like God told me to give Anki a second try. I now study twice as much and I am 4x more efficient. This is probably the best money I’ve ever spent. I make most of the cards on my laptop and I would recommend using YouTube tutorials before getting started. There’s a bit of a learning curve but it’s well worth the investment!

Bug.... There’s a glitch when i look up a word by using the plugged-in iOS dictionary. Then it stops working, and i have to close the app and reopen it again.

Great ANKI, but inferior on iOS, iPad. Windows version is better than iOS version as a making tool. Ankidroid is much better than iOS ANKI as a playing tool. Look at the free TTS, third party apps including PLECO, mobile-friendly design on Ankidroid. Finally, I bought a Windows device and probably I am gonna buy an Android or Chrome OS tablet because of these. iOS version seems like only for collecting money by taking adventage of Apple system with no apk file, less hack but more functions on free are in other OS versions. And it does not happen only on Anki. This is like a trend of studying apps. I feel iPad is getting less valuable in this point as a studying tool. Paid functions here are free ones there. Existing functions there does not exist here.

Waste of money. Thought this app would be beneficial and help me study but all it has cost me is almost $30 and a lot of wasted time. I feel like it is a decent app for super quick one worded answers and short questions, but nothing more. I would have been better off not wasting my money and using Quizlet

Athenthefirst   5 star

Best med school flash cards app. Do your anki everyday and you will bomb those shelf exams. There is all kinds of random info that I can collect with Anki and keep memorizing. It helps so much for extra points on exams. Thanks Anki. Please keep improving the app so the world gets better with smarter doctors.

Cloze issue. The colze doesn’t work orderly ,only hide and show the last one

Audio buttons could use improvement. Been using Anki desktop and AnkiWeb on mobile, so I’m already sold on what Anki offers. However, 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.

Keeps crashing on IPad Pro 2018. I can’t use Anki at all; I am using the developer update and it keeps crashing immediately

Out_Of_Practice   4 star

Interface changes a minus personally, but some people like material design and whitespace. Not a fan of the new interface changes, but in the end this is a problem with Apple refusing to let users install whatever version of software they want on their own hardware. 5/5 On Anki being awesome 4/5 on the new interface - it looks weird on the ipad mini 0/5 on Apple removing options for users to manage app versions they run

Indispensable. Worth every penny. I’ve spent 100s of hours on Anki over the past decade. A key part of my language learning routine.

okaylou   1 star

Recent update mess up the app. I loved the app but right now since the recent update it’s been crashing since. I have iPhone 7s and whenever I try to search for a specific card, it would just crash and erase all the changes I made to that said card.

Cameron 🌃   5 star

Great companion to the desktop app. Spaced repetition is the best technique bar none to memorize stuff, and Anki makes it easy. Definitely worth the $25 — wish I could donate more.

podcasts4daze   1 star

Not worth the purchase. If you don’t want to make your own decks and are using Zanki, it’s somewhat difficult to navigate and filter what you want to review from your phone

bug 反馈. 从上个版本支持中文,这个好评,可是发现两个不应该发生的bug:1、当浏览统计数据时,无论选择全部还是选择一年或者更久时间的时候,都会闪退;2、当对一张卡片操作,令其转移到另一个卡牌组的时候,同样会闪退!暂时只发现这两个bug,还望及时修复!

Best flash card app with the best customer service. I reported a problem regarding crashes when using split screen with GoodNotes. Anki support staff responded to my problem in less than 30 minute, and the problem has been resolved!

Great update!. Love the new functionality but it seems the change deck action is broken for me. Trying to move about 500 cards, selecting the new deck, pressing “choose” seems broken.

Lucian.Huang   1 star

This update is very buggy. When editing cards, it’s quite often that when touching BACK field and ADD REVERSE filed the cursor goes missing and renders editing the fields unusable.

Prnzzzzzx   4 star

Mostly great; needs load balancer. Anki for iOS is a great pairing with the non-mobile app. Most users will create cards on their non-mobile device and instead primarily use the mobile app for review. Sync works really well and it's amazing that it's free. The one thing mobile anki lacks and really needs is load balancing support, similar to the essential plugin of the same name. Without it, cards tend to bunch up on the same day, and reviews get less effective.

kcscarp   5 star

A versatile and effective application. Anki is one of the best flash card applications available. I recommend it to all of my students. It allows great flexibility with creation of your own decks, and also has a large quantity of shared decks through AnkiWeb. The timing of each card’s reappearance is based on solid science. You end up working on the concepts that are hardest to remember and not wasting time on concepts that are already mastered. You get a good outcome in the minimum time necessary.

Kirollos   5 star

Changed my life. I love reading and can understand almost any concept I come across but had always fallen behind when it came to memorization. This app has changed my life. I can’t thank you enough!

florxycn   5 star

Deepest thanks to 康志鼎!!!!!!. Thanks also to the developer!

Sonanto   5 star

Best app for Spaced Repetition. It’s a great app for creating generic flash cards for memorizing just about anything. I’ve used it for English vocab, foreign language learning, and geography. Much more flexible than any of the competitors and there’s an online repository of shared decks. Works best if you create your decks on a desktop version (cross platform and free).

Ab0939   2 star

iOS 13 update flawed still one week after update. When you tap and hold on a deck to rename the deck it doesn’t work, nothing happens, the dialog box doesn’t open allowing the user to change the name of the deck. I have to go into the app on my phone, change the name there, sync my phone, and sync my iPad to see the change, what an absolute pain. Since the update, when using the key board to change text styles (cmd + B, I, or U) for bold, italics, or underline Anki is unresponsive (if I open another app like Word this functionality works just fine) It’s been a week, like, can we address this. ***update*** I wrote the above review maybe five minutes ago. Just opened Anki on my iPad to create cards and now the split screen functionality isn’t working properly. When you type text, the text line continues as if it were not split screen and Anki were the only app open (the text doesn’t return and stay within the confines of the split screen, it disappears behind the adjacent app)

Taysheag   1 star

Doesn’t work and poor customer service. I use anki on my computer every day, so I decided to download it on my phone (paid $27). After syncing with my online account, none of my decks are showing up on the app. I emailed customer service days ago asking for help with the issue or a refund, and they never responded. Don’t waste your money.

cortez zhang   1 star

a lot of bugs. It’s quite annoying to use it under iPadOS. Like NO response on the taps actions, wired dark model that hide everything, keep showing the wrong layouts and so on...

Really the best app for anything flashcards!. I wanted to give 5 stars but i cant because recently, the images have been bugging. I tried reinstalling the app as well as trying it on other phones, but images will stay stuck on the wrong flashcards. I’m not really sure how to explain otherwise, but i thought it would be a bug you would like to know!

Marc-Antoine B.   5 star

Love it - Feature Request. This app makes my study sessions so much easier. I simply love it. Would it be possible to add a feature: set a learning deadline for exam dates, target dates so that all the cards are distributed in that time lapse.

No more recording audio. I love Anki so much, I has helped me a lot at retaining what I studied because I am easy to forget things. I study another language and listening how the natives speak is the most important thing to me, I used to use Anki to record the audio. This morning I was trying to add some other audio in, as I always do, I didnt see the recording button anymore. Please bring this feature back, Nobody pay 40 bucks for you guys to take that feature off the app

Chunksoflemon   5 star

Makes school so much easier. Having Anki on the desktop to bulk add cards, and then Anki on mobile to review anywhere is great. This app is simple and elegant. No wacky animations or fun sounds, just presents your flash cards in a clean way so you can get through hen quickly. Anki’s spaced repetition system has upped my grades and made studying so much easier. A+++++. Please never shut down Anki

fazzolini   5 star

This is a blessing. I use Anki to learn languages, math (there is Latex support), and programming. Since I started to use Anki consistently, my retention of information that I put in grew up significantly. This is a great app! P.S. They should teach how to use it in schools - kids would learn much better with it.

shirazigs   5 star

Amazing app!. This is a great and professional app. It has many useful options and features to use. I believe it’s a good investment for learning. This app is amazing for those who are serious to learn new things.

Great flash card app. I was very pleasantly surprised by this app. I tried every free-to-try flash card app I could find and they all lack something. This one has everything I am looking for. Well designed, intuitive and stable. I couldn’t be happier with this purchase.

Bugs in newest update. Tags are occluding answers. This was not a problem before recent update.

adsmith_   4 star

Effective but pricey. Anki is very effective at what it does for information retention however it is steep at $35. I hope for frequent updates with new features and polishing at this price point. One request would be to study the cards in my deck in a random order.

Happy. I'm truly happy with my purchase Anki helped me out a lot during these months Thanks Anki!

thematthewboyd   4 star

The new update is great. I am experiencing one annoying issue however. It seems that whenever I add new cards from my desktop, the scheduling settings go back to default. Whereas I always set the day to start at 5:00, it keeps getting set back to 22:00. This has caused me to miss some days of review.

Random order/shuffling cards. It’s frustrating that cards aren’t presented in random order when learning them.

SM2020   4 star

Very useful learning app. Makes using anki really easy and user-friendly, especially when studying on my long commute to school. Not sure if the price tag is completely justifiable (given how simple the app really is) but at the same time, it’s such a critical tool to my studies.

BenGronberg   5 star

Worth the Price. All I can say is that it is well worth the price. I do all my notes on my Mac & then I convert them into my Anki app on the Mac. Sure it takes a little longer when I’m studying, but then I can study anywhere and quickly! When I’m out in a line, I pull my app out. Sitting at the doctor’s office? Yep! Anki! When I’m cramming for finals, YOU GUESSED IT, ANKI! Sure the price is steep, but I’ve found no glitches, and I want to support this developer. Thanks for making studying easier, I can’t wait to see how you continue to make the app better!

Very glitchy NOT WORTH IT!!!!!. I did not mean to buy this as the Face ID bought it for me, I decided to give the app a try and it is not user friendly at all. You are unable to do half of the stuff as you are on mac. PLUS IT COST $35!!!!!

Leonidas2017   2 star

Good but missing major features. Ok but for price we need pc level edit Also NO idea how many unique cards reviewed!! Add: Ie search cards for keyword with multi-select and tag ie give us checkboxes to tag in search 100s of cards. Allow easier tagging with reviews Undo/return to previous card button, better photo import and multiple import, improved statistics, view buried cards and unbury, and text and magnifying buttons. Also add card management features found on computer. For 35$ we deserve this not a stripped down version Please keep updates coming

Jonostilla   3 star

Little things.... A bit annoyed after the cost. If I don't finish a whole review session it often forget my place. Just between leaving the app and coming, reasking me questions I've just answered correctly. Good enough to use but not at all good given the cost, the quality is that of a free app.

ottawa-steve   5 star

the best reason for having a smart phone. Anki 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.

Magder   2 star

Disappointed - Anki can do better. I was surprised to find that the iPad version lacks a lot of the functionality of the desktop version. That would be fine if this app were free, but given the 35$ price tag, that's just unacceptable. For example, I can't use IO cards, and the card management section has been heavily stripped down. If you're going to charge such a high fee for the iPad/iPhone version, then I expect a high level of functionality. You can do better Anki.

Great App - Ugly Interface. This app is incredible, been using it for over 12 months and it is a perfect companion to the desktop client. Unfortunately the latest update featured a design change, and I must say this app is now hideous. The new cog is good, but the changes to the answer buttons were unnecessary and are really really yuck. Please give us the option to have the old buttons back :( The app was beautiful as it was.

Would be better with Apple Pencil support. There is no scratchpad option that can use Apple Pencil, so if that is added this app is 5 stars. Without it, I don’t think this app would be able to use all of the functionalities available with an iPad Pro. Please add it in the next update?? <3

MarkD001   5 star

Excellent app. 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!

hanson5818   1 star

Do not buy this app!!!!. 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.

r10k   5 star

Great.... 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   2 star

Not for me. 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.)

Ash19950   5 star

Audio doesn’t sync. 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. Very good app, only feature that is missing is the ability to command-z (for those using an iPad keyboard) for undo.

Littletray26   1 star

New update broke my deck. 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   5 star

Just Right. 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.

Atabah   5 star

Excellent study tool. Helps getting your spaced repetition done in a beautiful way Seemingly sync with the desktop version so you can make your notes and study on the go Really good tool, well worth the price (desktop being free)

corydoras   1 star

Useful but needs work. Overall its an excellent app, it has improved over the years, but still has a long way to go. The main issue is that it is very desktop centric, you really can’t use this application without installing and syncing with a desktop computer. For example, if you have 1000 cards, and want to unsuspend them in batches of 100 (i.e. You have 100 things to learn for class each week), this can only done on the computer. Which can be a nightmare if you are on the train on the way to class, and want to study this weeks 100 cards, but can’t because they are suspended. Overall, probably the best flashcard app on the app store, but these small issues cause huge problems, (If I was able to un-suspend cards on the way to class last week on my phone, I would have done way better on my test I had that week)

ak_stylez   2 star

So much potential. Love anki on my Mac, but the iOS version leaves a lot to be desired: - App keeps crashing when I try to sync. Especially when syncing down changes from ankiweb. Syncing up seems to be okay. - Poor support for making cards. - No way to rename decks. - No support for iPad split screen multitasking For such an expensive app, I think it's fair to expect a better product.

Good app but stupidly expensive. A good tool for language study but ludicrously overpriced.

Delboy6666   5 star

Best implementation of flash cards in an app.. I have tried a few different apps for flash cards and this one is without doubt the best. The app shows you cards at greater intervals as they go into your long term memory, so no wasting time on lots of cards you know well. There is a bit of a learning curve to learn how to create cards, but well worth the effort. It also syncs flawlessly with the desktop app. I am using it to learn Latin and Ancient Greek and it just works.

Gus_reds ftw   4 star

Fantastic app - just needs the ability to create flash cards on iOS. I have been using Anki for 5 years now, and through this time I have completed my medical degree and learned a language. Anki has been great for my knowledge retention during both of these pursuits. The only suggestion I have is that the ability to make and upload flash cards from iOS would be very useful, and even a very simplistic flash card-making interface would still give me the ability to build my decks while on the go (e.g. Adding new vocabulary while reading on my morning commute). Otherwise, a great app!

Ben Rae   5 star

Great for learning vocabulary. I've been using Anki for nearly a year of language learning and it's been great. I use the desktop app to add words and definitions, then use Anki mobile to review them. It is fairly expensive, but it's also far superior to any other flashcard app I've used.   5 star

Great App, The best ever. No doubt it is the best flash cards app ever One Suggestion: It would be great if you could add the Edit option for the photo is taken straightaway by the camera :). So, it would be possible to edit ( cutting for example) the photo is taken instantly

Good but hard to use. Seems like an incredibly good learning tool but it seems hard to learn how to use and unnecessarily complicated. Tutorials and information are often unclear as to what Anki is and how it does it.

This is a great application. This app has proven invaluable to me, the learning curve is a little steeper then some other similar apps but it will blow them away when used properly. I would like though to be able to add to note categories from the mobile app as well as the desktop.

The Most Important App on My Phone. Thanks 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.

Need to add card editor/browser. I almost always use my iPad Pro to use Anki but I need to use my laptop to add/remove cards, share decks, or even just browse cards in the deck. If we get this feature it’d be worth the $30

Best Flashcard App, but.... I have been using Anki’s desktop and browser version to help get me through med school. I’ve tried quizlet, study blue, and a couple other less known flashcard apps that just didn’t have the flexibility that Anki has. Anki may be simple looking in its aesthetics, but it’s a lot more powerful than the competition. You can add virtually anything (audio, media, text, etc) to a flash card, can study at your own pace, and review your progress. With its spaced repetition programming, it has everything you need and more in a flash card application. So why the three stars? Two reasons: the price and the inability to choose which decks to download. 1. The Web and desktop versions are free. Although I have no qualms in supporting the developers by buying this app, the price is a little steep for an otherwise free product. 2. On Anki you make a profile, and all of your decks, progress, etc are synced to that profile. When you download the app, not only do you sync to your profile, but every card of every deck that is linked to your profile is then downloaded onto your phone. You can’t choose which decks you want to download, so you’re stuck with three choices, none of which are optimal. Either you delete decks as to not overwhelm the hard drive on your phone, create a new account and go through the process of exporting data daily from one account to another just to keep up with the progress you’ve made on a deck, or be consigned to the fact that you’re just going to have to make room for the multiple gigabytes of data that come along with having an Anki account. As a whole, I give Anki 5 stars, but this app falls short of the type of flexibility I’ve come to expect from the developers of Anki.

Couldn’t have done med school without it. Used it all through med school and now I basically have my med school notes with me all the time and they’re searchable! It’s amazing. Used it for step studying as well and now I’m using it for board studying. I don’t know what I’d do without it. Best $25 I’ve ever spent. One thing - can you make the review buttons bigger (the ones on the bottom of the screen when you’re deciding when to see the card again)? They’re smaller and harder to press now.

Decent app but it is missing a key feature. The only way to review back to front is to go on the desktop app and individually edit every single card to have a back to front copy, as far as I know. A simple back to front review mode would be much more helpful.

Please Add Image Occlusion. Anki is pretty much one of the greatest apps, if not the greatest app, when it comes to spaced repetition and quality learning. My only desire and hope for the app is that they do their best to add image occlusion as a permanent feature of the app. The computer version of anki has this image occlusion add-on that gives you the power to edit pictures and block out certain areas to test on. It has helped me tremendously in medical school. If only I could do that on my ipad. Then this app would be complete.

Vital medical school tool. Would not have been able to get through medical school without it. It allows me to easily manage, organize and navigate (and learn!) the ~60,000 cards I have stockpiled. The phone app is more of a companion app to the free, open-source desktop app. In general, there are massive decks that others have made available for free, everything is customizable and people write and publish add-ons for the desktop app - if you have a specific need, chances are, someone’s made a solution for you. Support open-source software! Buy this app!

The Search Function Needs Some Love 🤖. Nice update, thanks! BUT: The card browser search function is really horrible! It has a lot of annoying things. 1. It has a problem with Cyrillic uppercase. Looking for the word “котёнок” does’t show the result “Котёнок”. And looking for “Котёнок” does’t show “котёнок”. Although the search query “kitten” will find both variants—“kitten” and “Kitten”. All one can to do is to use a query like “отёнок”. Sorry me, but that’s stupid! 2. The program hasn’t got those useful find options like Match Case and Ignore Diacritics (which is on for Cyrillic symbols permanently, lol). 3. There’s no way to switch the search to the Whole Word mode from the Contains mode. And if you will try to find cards with the word “some“ you will also get results like “somebody”, “someone”, “someday”, etc. That’s not great because sometimes I want to look through my cards and study how a specific word or collocation can be used in various contexts. In this case Anki could be useful not only for repetition of the learned material, but also for the analysis of available data. 4. Also I would like to have the ability to exclude a specific field from search scope. For example I’ve got a very organized field that contains all the references, technical notes and other meta information. All that backstage stuff very often interferences with usual material that brings a huuuge mess in search process. If only I could turn it off on demand... Say, a checkbox like “Remember Last Input” in a field settings — “Exclude the Field from Search”, that grants the behavior as the tags field has. Yeah, it would be great! The program has existed for a long time (and I really like to use it!), but it still does not have many useful functions, and that’s pretty bad, unfortunately. Come on, dear developer! I know you can do this! 🦄

A step down. I've used AnkiMobile for almost as long as it's been around in conjunction with the free desktop companion. Remember that you always need both, so any issue affecting the desktop companion will affect the App. AnkiMobile 2.0.1 is marginally improved over version 1.x, although synchronization issues remain: Media is often not synced completely. But the desktop companion version 2 has gone from a simple interface and logical system of organizing facts and cards to a complicated and counterintuitive system that undermines popular study approaches. I cannot recommend investing much study time with this app at the moment, because your scheduling information (i.e. the history of your repetitions) will become so important to you that it will effectively lock you into the use of this App. Much simpler and cheaper Apps like iFlash, Flashcards, and Study for iPhone are better bets.

A life saver!. I've been studying using the Anki desktop app for four years now, and its been the best thing to happen to my studies ever! Now with the mobile app I can study on the bus and save myself two hours every day! It's simply amazing. This program is fantastic. I don't know how I'd get through school without it! Keep the updates and improvements coming! 2.0 blew my mind :)

A-Town-Down   3 star

A step back. My last review of Anki 1 on the App Store was 5 star, and don't get me wrong Anki 2 is worth the money, it just doesn't meet the criterion expected from a successor. I just can't help but feel that there are some key features that are absent in this new update. Yes, there are pretty new graphs, the ability to download new decks from the mobile client, but yet I miss simple features such as being able to choose if you want to review new, old, or failed cars first, and having a little description for what each button for the tool bar actually does.. Not to mention the lack of details pertaining to each decks history... Also the desktop client, which I use mainly to add cards, is clunkier than ever. The browser for displaying the cards does not meet past standards, and is a disappointment for me. All in all, I have faith that Damien will improve this app and the desktop client as time passes, but I just feel that some key elements are missing in this update. Damien, you will still be getting a chunk of money from me when I pass the JLPT N1. I could have never done it without you and Anki!

Lacks polish. I've found anki quite useful, however it lacks the polish I would expect from $25. It also seems the developer is not invested in improving it as it has not been updated in well over a year.

More adaptable. Many flashcard apps assume that you just want a card with two sides. While that works fine on paper and works well with memory because the brain likes "this = that" memorization, it offers very little utility. When I found anki for the desktop, it instantly became my learning japanese flashcard program, but I was finding it difficult to use when I was supposed to. When I got my ipod, this was one of the first apps I looked for. At $25, I was unsure, but I bought this excellent app the moment it became $10 cheaper. I have not had any regrets. Although it offers flashcards like any other app, anki is by far the easiest and most advanced flashcard apps. It works by asking for 'facts' that it can generate multiple cards from. After about 10 minutes making a template on the computer, I have a deck that generates a card for each and every conjugation for a japanese verb. Without anki, I would have had the misfortune of making 12 cards for EVERY japanese verb I had to learn. Now that I made the template, I only need to open the app and add the requested info to instantly make those 12 cards. It's also extremely easy to customize how cards look, which can make it much easier to memorize. For $15 this is way more than worth the price, but I would recommend you try the anki for pc beforehand to get a hang of making templates. In summary, I still remembered all the kanji cards I synced from ankiweb, so it obviously works for memorization. Considering that the pc version is free, this app is more than worth the price; It helps support the indie developer responsible for creating the most useable flashcard system in existence. Ultimately, it's your decision on purchasing this, but I guarantee you will not regret this app. The only feature it lacks is notifications, which it more than makes up for with its features.

Kuzuri_616   5 star

Best flashcard app around, by far. I do think $25 seems a little expensive for this app, but I've been using it for a couple years now and wouldn't be without it. When you combine the features of the desktop version for making and customizing decks with the ability to sync online then use it on your apple device, it's unbeatable. I spent days trying out every other flashcard app there was and nothing compared to this. The ability to backup your deck alone is worth the money considering how much time it takes to make them.

Must have for anki users. Definitely a must have for anki users. If you haven't used the desktop version of anki I'd start there (google it), but if you are already an anki user this is definitely worth it. Now I'm doing reviews whenever I have a spare moment and I'm no longer having problems finishing my cards for the day. Much appreciated.

ashiato   5 star

Great. I'm a long time Anki user and this portable iPhone version complements the desktop version perfectly. I would recommend it to anyone who is already familiar with the desktop application and would like to do their flashcards on the go. As it does take some time to get used to how Anki works, new users would be better served trying out the free desktop application first. For me, AnkiMobile is exactly what I need to study my flashcards whenever and wherever I want. 5 stars!

Gyrocon   3 star

Could be better. I know, I think this app is great but it just isn't worth 25$. On the pc version there are graphs and you can download decks without having to log in to your account. It does it's basic purpose but for 25$ I hope that it gets upgraded to at least pc standard.

PocketScholar   5 star

Love It!. Finally! I have been using Anki with iAnki on the iTouch for a year now to study my Greek and have been hoping for a native iPhone version. It was a piece of cake to download my decks. It is well worth the price. I am a developer myself and contrary to popular belief programs don't grow on trees and $.99 is not a reasonable price for a useful application. If you actually use a program, it is worth supporting the developer. Good job Damien.

Best study tool around. Anki is the best study tool I've ever had the pleasure to use. AnkiMobile is a solid mobile version for studying away from your computer. Now on the second major update in about a month (adding huge new features and speed improvements), AnkiMobile has some of the best software support I have ever seen! Definately worth the cost.

J. Carcinogen   5 star

So glad to see Anki in the app store!. My wife and I have been using the PC version of Anki for about three years now as part of our personal studies. I've been trying to learn Japanese and she's been trying to become a medical clerk. By using Anki, my wife aced her medical terminology course (average of 98% and English is her second language) and my Japanese vocabulary has grown from an embarrassing couple hundred words to over seven thousand that I can now read and recall nearly instantly. Spaced Repetition is the best way to build and retain any list of facts, words, or concepts, and Anki is the simplest, fastest, and most flexible application I've every found to do it with. The iPhone version seems to be working well and I'm so glad it's finally available!

brianskold   5 star

Better than I anticipated. Really impressed. If you're already using Anki Desktop then this is a great way to keep up your reviews even when not online. Everything installed without a hitch, even fetching my media from Dropbox automatically (although it did take about 1hr to download the 3000+ files). Makes good use of iPod features (orientation, taps, swipes etc.) and has lots of options but is still easy to use. The main weakness with the current version (1.8) is sync. If you make changes on the desktop and mobile and forget to sync there's no option to merge the changes. This will apparently be fixed in Anki 2.0. Also, sync is a little slow. If you're not familiar with Anki then I suggest trying the (free) desktop version first to see if it's what you need.

Legendary. I've been using desktop Anki for just over a year now, and it is by and the far the single most important tool for anyone learning a language. Considering the ridiculous amount of time and effort Damien has put in to make this the great program it is, this app is underpriced if anything.

Dave Edwards   5 star

Must have for the serious flashcard user on the move. I've been using Anki for a few years now, and it has become an integral part of my study routine. Spaced repetition software (SRS) is probably *the* best way to learn vocabulary, and I tried many others (Supermemo, Mnemosyne, but I kept coming back to Anki. Easy to use but very customisable, it has helped me memorise 5000+ Chinese words and a similar number of Japanese words in just over two years. This version (1.1) is still a bit spartan, but according to the website more features are in the works, and it is still a very sturdy and useable app. You'll definitely want to complement the iPhone client with the desktop client, at least for a few more versions, but this is a must-have app if you're serious about SRS on the go.

J-learner   4 star

Essential tool in daily study routine. I have been studying Japanese language for a few months now, and Anki in various forms has been a constant companion in my daily study routine. This app finally brings the power of the Anki SRS system to my iPhone, and lets me do my daily Anki reviews while on the go, syncing them with my desktop clients at home and in the office. The interface is designed with simplicity in mind, so as not to detract in any way from learning. With powerful features like media and furigana support available today, and an enthusiastic, responsive and helpful developer working on all sorts of enhancements, this app was for me definately the way to go. If you are the sort of person who has a short attention span, and doesn't take their learning seriously enough to spend a few minutes to watch a couple of videos and find out how to optimise their own learning experience, then this is probably not the app for you. If however you do take your learning seriously, and are out to get state-of-the-art tools and do whatever it takes to succeed, then you should look closely at the Anki desktop client and this app, and you will of course realise that the asking price of this app is peanuts in the overall scheme of things, when you consider the level of investment required for a massive undertaking such as the learning of a foreign language.

shinyclef   5 star

Powerful and Simple. Anki simple flashcard program with ambitious intentions. The idea is simple. Immagine you have hundreds (or thousands) of flashcards at home. So today you want to study. What should you study? Are you gonna go through the whole deck? Are you gonna do 100 each day in an endless loop? Are you gonna put aside the hard ones to study them again a bit more? How much time are you gonna spend learning new things? Well, forget all that, because Anki shows you what you need to review, when you need to review, without wasting your time on things that are simply too easy, so you can maximize efficiency and learn what you want to learn effectively. Things that are easy for you will end up be reviewed rarely, while difficult things will pop up just as you thought you were about to forget, and it's all done in a way to give you the most free time to learn new things as possible. Now, some things you'll need to know are that this program is certainly powerful with a huge range of possibilities and customization for your own deck, but to access that potential you'll need to use it in conjunction with the desktop application. The current version of Anki Mobile here doesn't even allow you to create your own cards. This is be 'design'. It's far more efficient to use your mouse and keyboard to edit things on mass rather than your tiny little iPod/Phone keyboard input. By popular request however, this feature is on the way in a couple of months, which you can upgrade to for free later on, which brings me to my next point. Support. The author of this software is very open to feedback and constructive critisism, and supports the user very well. There is even a website set up where users can vote for what features they want, and everything is considered sincerely and reasonably. The community usings this software is highly motivated and offers a great support network for learning resources. There is a particularly large following of students of Japanese, but there are plenty of people studying other languages and a wide range of interesting topics. Check out the screen shots and you'll see just some of the things it can be used for. Functionality wise, it does what it needs to do very cleanly. You see a qusetion, you check the answer to see if you were right and you grade yourself. But the beauty is in the algorithm and behind the scenes code which is where Anki really towers over its competitors. Yes, the price is high for an iPod/Phone app, but as most long term users of the 'free' desktop client will tell you, it's worth every penny. Do I suggest you buy it right now? No, go ahead and check out the website and try the desktop client. Download a shared deck to give it a test, and create your own and have a go. If you find you like it, you'll probably find the price here really cheap compared to the mass of other material you could by to learn at a less effecient rate. 5 stars for functionality, simplicity, a powerful algorithm and fantastic support. With the ability to sync text and media accross multiple computers/platforms, the iPod/Phone makes a fantstic addition to your mobile learning. There is no way I could see myself studying without it now.

stevemarson   1 star

not yet satisfied. I paid my $30 which makes this the most expensive app I have purchased so far - believing Anki's promise to be a great learning tool. I have experienced nothing but frustration so far as I have not yet being able to download any packs or sync with ones I have already created on my macbook The tutorial and support information has so far sent me going around in circles. And i don't have time to trace through web forums, watch instructional videos etc. For $30 i expect a product that works easily and intuitively straight out of the box! - Is that too much to ask?

uxintro   3 star

Good enough for now... just. This app is functional and that is about as generous as I can get for now. The three stars are mostly for the Anki service itself. The app works well but is very minimal. It has serious missing features (such as the ability to add a new card or edit an existing one) though the developer has promised that more is coming in updates to follow (click the link for AnkiSRS support above for details). For a $1.99 or even a $5.99 app this would be acceptable, but when you are paying $30 you expect just a little bit more. I'm putting a lot of faith in the developer and hoping that I'll be seeing more features soon. Still, it at least looks better than Anki online on Mobile Safari and I might just be more likely to study my vocab words more often with it installed. But still... $29.99??
