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. For information on bulk discounts for educational institutions, please see 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.



  • Downloaded in error

    By yowyowma
    I downloaded this app for IPad in error and was wondering if I could return it? I already have this on my PC which I love using.
  • Med students don’t buy!

    I have so many images on my flash cards . I wasted $25 on this and ZERO images are shown . All that shows is an empty white box and no one has a solution for it . Waste
  • Instant buyer’s remorse

    By Lao Learner
    I know this app is research-based and very intelligent; using a scientific approach to memorization. I knew this before purchasing the app. But I was very disappointed to find that you can’t simply turn off all the controls. I want to simply make cards and review cards without the interference of the algorithms which for me are irritating and unhelpful. Anki, am I missing something? I don’t want a one time cram session solution. I want to turn off of controls and simply make decks and review them. No limits. No algorithms. Just let me scroll through my cards randomly. I used a more simple free app before this one. It worked great for a couple months. I LOVED it and learned super well! It got buggy after a little while though and I purchased this app thinking if I paid money I would deal with less bugs. Please help!
  • Original Works - let the buyer beware: read the TOS for synching to the cloud

    By FluffyPorcupine
    I did not have an opportunity to put the application through its paces, please read other reviews for application functionality. I needed to synch between PC and iPad and to do this the application directs you to a website. Signing up is free, quick, and easy HOWEVER the terms a user must agree to clearly states that all content created using this application must be the user's original works. This means that if I take a picture of a diagram in a McGraw Hill book (their intellectual property "IP") and synch my iPad with my PC I have violated the terms of service. I'm not sure how Anki enforces this policy but I would imagine that their legal department stuck this clause into the terms to limit their liability. Because the decks which are synchronized to the cloud are available to anyone, I would imagine publishers whose IP has been copied, attached to flash cards, and shared on the web via this medium would come knocking wanting royalties. Understand that in this scenario you, the end user, are on the hook (however small or large that hook may be) for any damages as a result of breaching the terms of service for this application and violating copyrights. I do not intend to profit from my flashcards and just want a reference tool that can synchronize between PC and iPad. If I would have known that all contents of the flashcards must be my original works in order to synch between devices I would not have downloaded the app.
  • iPad/ iPhone version needs help!

    This app is great if you are working from your desktop/MacBook. However, the iPhone and iPad version needs support. They are excellent for reviewing the cards but not for making them. Image occlusion, single cloze deletion are just some of the examples that can’t be worked through iPad/iPhone.
  • It does not support TTS, please refund me my money

    By Listening_101
    Support Representative, Before I bought this app I emailed your support email and I asked if the mobile app supported TTS(text to speech). You told me yes. I just bought the app 10 minutes and the app does not support TTS. I'm not talking about audio or media files, I'm talking specifically about TTS. Since you are a programmer that designed the app you know the difference, and you still told me "yes the mobile app supports text to speech" I saved a copy of the email. Please refund the $25 to my account and take the app back. It's useless to me without TTS. I only bought it for TTS. Please refund my account and take this app back. Thank you.
  • The Best App I’ve Ever Downloaded

    By agent008197
    This app is an absolute lifesaver. In a pair of summer aquatic biology classes, I had to memorize more than 400 pieces of information about various aquatic organisms, including insanely complicated scientific names. I was able to use Anki to memorize everything I needed to know. Every student ought to have this app. I’m definitely using it during the school year next year.
  • Hate it

    By mr geeky gadget
    I absolutely hated this app. I couldn’t import decks that I’d paid for (specifically designed from/for this app), couldn’t put pictures on the cards, couldn’t create cards on the mobile version of the cite, once cards were created I couldn’t put them in the deck I wanted, and had to use the website on a computer- it can’t be done on a mobile device. I spent 2 hours (time I’m not getting back) trying to get the app to work, and not studying, like I wanted to. I’m using a more user-friendly app now. I generated 71 cards on a different cite in less time than I spent fighting with this app.
  • greatest app for learning Japanese

    incredible flash card app
  • Never forget anything

    By JLemien
    This is hands-down the best flash card app if you want to remember things. You can create your own items and customize the review intervals for each of them. You’re also able to download shared decks, but the memory benefits will be much greater if you create your own decks of cards.
