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 supports the full set of scheduling options that the desktop does, the options can't currently be changed from within AnkiMobile, so it's necessary to adjust them on the desktop and then sync the changes across to AnkiMobile. Likewise with card layout: customizing the appearance of your cards and turning on options like 'type in the answer' currently needs 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 up to 5 devices in a household using the same Apple ID. Family sharing is also supported. For information on bulk discounts for educational institutions, please see http://www.apple.com/itunes/education/

What's New in Version 2.0.17
Fixed a memory leak that could cause crashes when syncing lots of sounds and images to the device.
Anki makes learning vocab like a game
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this program. In three years of self-study, I'd learned all of 1400 words in a notoriously difficult language (for English speakers, anyway). Since starting Anki 4 months ago, I've learned 600. I love how flexible it is--how YOU input the words you want to learn, in the order you want to learn them, and decide for yourself if you got an answer wrong, if you got it right but it was hard, if you got it right and it was normally easy, or if it was super easy, I love the fact you can make unlimited tags for your cards. After I study, I re-study any words I get wrong--the app has an easy way to do that, I don't have to keep track of it myself. Then I go see my stats and it's fun to see the rise and fall of correct answers and perceentages of new, young, and mature cards. The algorhythm is just right, too. I re-see cards just when it's a little hard to remember them. Support has been great, too. Any problems or glitches are addressed immediately.
For me has been a deal changer. I'm living in a foreign country and I'm really invested in improving my vocabulary, but I just didn't know how. Tried Quizlet and other programs, but nothing has been like this. I'm just super glad I found it. Best app I have, by far. Totally and completely worth it.
The most used app on my phone.
Wicked flexible wicked smart app that has lasted me for years when MANY other flashcard apps have failed me, desktop and mobile. It does forward, reverse, media, html/css formatting (&LaTex!).
I study 5 languages, in multiple scripts, with tens of thousands of notes. Each language gives me different problems, I absorb each differently. I do 500+ note reviews every day, 20,000+ each month, 8-10hrs/week. Anki keeps up. Nothing else has. Only Anki has been able to adapt to my needs and my peculiar challenges. It is impossible to describe here all the ways Anki is superior, from note layout, data handling of large sets, to the most important factor, scheduling.
Yes, it has a steep learning curve, but only Anki has not presented me with walls that prevented me from making the solutions I need. The reward is a learning aid app that can handle almost anything.
It is, indeed, best with the desktop, but that's a better tool for the heavy lifting work, anyway. And the developers have been super responsive to my few but detailed questions. And talk about an app that doesn't crash, even through buggy iOS releases? A few hiccups, fixed reasonably quickly.
Well worth the price!
I've used the desktop version of Anki for years. I always wanted the app but the price always set me off with my student budget. After a particularly tough round of tests and a nice paycheck I finally bit the bullet and wish I'd done so sooner! Being able to whip out my phone and do a few cards while waiting at the doctor's or in the 10 minutes between classes is so convenient, I'm able to take photos on my phone and immediately make them into flaschards, and it syncs easily with my desktop version. Best app purchase I've ever made.
