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.

  • Couldn’t have done med school without it

    By jenmarie89
    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.
  • Thanks so much for bringing back theme options!!

    By kiriegou
    The slate theme looks great on my phone and is just what I was hoping. It seems many users and not just myself grew attached to the old school color scheme of the interface, so thank you for complying to our oddly specific demands :)
  • White line on dark themes

    By gss57
    Thanks for bringing themes back. When using darker themes (e.g. slate) with night mode *off* but still using cards which you had designed with black backgrounds (ie this is essentially night mode but with a custom text color scheme based on how you designed your card rather than the light blue text that night mode itself uses for cloze answers), there is a thin white line above the bottom bar in review mode.
  • WORST Costumer Support

    By expectedsomething
    I have emailed them 4 times asking for assistance with syncing this app and there has been NO assistance.
  • Decent app but it is missing a key feature

    By Username382848
    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.
  • Love the new update

    By sonev
    Thanks for the excellent app and continued support. Best spaced repetition app available.
  • Thanks for the new upgrades

    By sarah_Adam
    I was not using the app for reviewing my cards as I used the desktop version but after the upgrade I really like it and I will use it frequently now. The only important missing part is add font coloring option. Please it is very important for memorization
  • So helpful, makes me realize how little I know

  • Please Add Image Occlusion

    By The Wurley Durley
    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.
  • Best of its Kind

    the new update is great, and the app doe what it should do, but you should use it everyday. im learning german at advance level and there are dozens of new words, without Anki im not able to remember all of them.
