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. 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. For more information on AnkiMobile, including a link to the online manual, please have a look at the support page: 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.



  • I want my money back...

    By ...angel.devil...
    So I had this app on my regular computer, it was working ok, I found it hard to navigate in general. Downloaded the app bc I need to get something done to my computer, it’s so freaking expensive for an app, and I have encountered sooooo many problems with it. First, it takes a million years to sync, and then the syncing doesn’t even work right! You have to have the computer program in order to organize the decks and cards.. and then my previous cards lost all of there media!! All of it! I was like ok, fine I’ll just redownload the whole freaking deck and reorganize it ...and guess what? I finished what I was doing and it synced... I look on both the app and my computer and all of my cards disappeared... I am beyond frustrated. It was over 14,000 flash cards... I’m in Medical school, I don’t have time to keep downloading and reorganizing and waiting for it sync.... I know other people like this app, and good for them, but to me, it is not worth the hassle. Even people that like it, say it is hard to navigate as well.
  • Thanks for Game Controller Support!

    By Anders Family
    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!
  • Great but Pen support could be more

    By Samrat221b
    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.
  • Best $25 I’ve ever spent

    By Kingjameska
    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...

    By pinx58
    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

    By M3lissa20
    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
  • Best med school flash cards app

    By Athenthefirst
    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

    By xvsdfhijj
    The colze doesn’t work orderly ,only hide and show the last one
  • Audio buttons could use improvement

    By enterAnAlias
    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.
