Severely buggy and counterproductive version
I wish I had good things to say about this. It’s okay if you don’t mind wasting half and hour making your cards after which they are not saved, they disappear. I contacted AnkiApp support several times to report a severe memory leak and CPU usage spiking, got nothing back from them. It’s free software, so I guess not much man power goes into it. While it is useful and the direction the app is going is a good one, it’s definitely not there yet. Not by a really, really long shot.
I just spent half an hour typing up and pasting images in a new deck, and the app became very slow, so I did what I usually do - restart the app. Turns out the app does not save the cards you create even though it says “card saved” at the top and you hit save 10s of times in between creating cards. I think that’s a debilitating oversight on the programmer’s part. It probably syncs the cards up after you exit the create card screen, or some silly alternative way, but the point is, it lost everything. When I started the app back up, the deck has 0 cards. Not a single one was saved. Not locally, not online. It’s just so disappointing.
Either way, it’s an HTML app, so it’s not hard to develop or maintain, but for right now, I’m sorry, this is unusable for anything more than downloading ready-made cards and going through them.
I’ve used AnkiApp almost daily for nearly a year and a half. It has the potential to be the best flashcard app in the appstore. HOWEVER, this app hasn’t been updated in almost a year and has been so glitchy that it almost doubles my study time. The cloud flashcard database has been very very difficult to connect to for the past couple of months and then today it failed altogether. I was given a “session timed out" error message on all of my devices and then kicked out of each of them. I still cannot login on any of them except one, and that one has absolutely no ability to redownload the decks that apparently it deleted when it kicked me out. I now am completely unable to access several thousand flashcards that I have made, including those that I need urgently for a test tomorrow and now have no time to remake, let alone study. Until big changes and updates make their way out, I recommend looking elsewhere.
Just what I needed to learn faces and names
Using as a tool to learn names and faces. Works fantastic. The rich text cards are great. Quick to create and update. I can share among devices and with others. The cloud sync pulls down the changes to all the devices. App is stable.
Rating 4 stars because there are a couple of broken parts: 1) tags are forced upper case when you enter as you edit the card, but forced lower case when you add to an existing card. It seems impossible to create consistent tags. 2) Support site can’t be opened.
