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 was written by the lead developer of Anki and AnkiWeb, and it has been around since 2010. Beware other apps using "Anki" in their name that have sprung up recently - they are not compatible with the rest of the Anki ecosystem, and they offer far fewer features.
Some of AnkiMobile's features include:
- 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.
- Support for adding images drawn with the Apple Pencil to your cards.
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 and schedule your cards in the same way the computer version does, certain changes like modifying note types need to be done with the computer software. Add-ons are not supported, so while you can study image occlusion cards created with the computer version, they can not be created within AnkiMobile. For this reason, please start with the computer version of Anki before you think about buying this app.
The cloud synchronization service is optional, and data can also be imported/exported from the app via a USB cable or AirDrop.
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 (apart from in India). 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: https://docs.ankimobile.net/support.html. 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.

Ascending position??

Why isn’t the New Card Sort Order option Ascending Position available on the iPhone app?
In the options on the desktop app, I’ve set it as Display Order >> New Card Sort Order >> Ascending Position.
But it’s nowhere to be seen on the iPhone app .
How do I set the Ascending Position option for Display Order on the iPhone app ??

Amazing app! Undefeated!!

Version 2.0.80
An amazing on the go app for flashcards.

Worth Buying, just put batch preview!

Prasenjit Sarkar
Version 2.0.47
Anki for ipad is very very good and worth buying.
If the developer add these two features it would be awesome.
1. Batch preview
2. Bullets / numbering during editing
Note: Sketchpad feature is the awesome, which makes it unique from desktop app.
Keep it up, i am expecting these two features in next update. Thank you.

Best srs app on iPad

Britto Augustus
Version 2.0.86
If you are looking for a good srs app to aid you in your language learning, this is definitely worth investing into

the keyboard shortcuts are not working after this update.

priyabrata padhy
Version 2.0.79
everything was fine till this update. the keyboard shortcuts(even the basic ones like EDIT ADD ) are not working,especially after opening a diff app for multitasking ). please dont update the app if u r going to take away even the basic functionalities.

While making cards sometimes what i write disappears when i try to save it

doctor gaurav thakur
Version 1.8
I write a page with apple pencil with inbuilt tool on anki and the note just disappears when i try to save it, so disappointed.

Almost perfect!

Version 2.0.78
I never regret buying the paid version for my iPad,
but a bunch of features could be added to make the app much more powerful.
1. Being able to manually crop a picture (captured using camera in-app) would go a long way, it’s just so sad having to go use Ankidroid whenever I need to crop a pic in-app.
2. I know Add-ons aren’t possible on iPad version, but at least adding Image Occlusion add-on somehow would be great!
TO BE FIXED: Also, Timer isn’t being shown on the review screen for iPad, even though the ‘Show Timer’ option is turned on. Please fix it

best to review ,not to create new flashcards

Version 2.0.43
I Solely use ipad to create flashcards,The worst part is not having the option for Add ons,i can't create image occlusion,multiple subdecks,can't add heat map...

I'm having an issue regarding making image occlusion deck on the app...and cant make subdecks on the app...pls tell me how to do it and if possible make a youtube video on how to use Ankimobile there is none on the internet pls... apart from that its worth purchasing...👍🏻👍🏻❤️


Version 2.0.49
I’m using the app on my iPad, and I wanted to know if I could write and edit over the images I put in my cards
If not, please do look into adding that feature

Love it! But...

Version 2.0.17
I love this app, being able to do my cards anywhere is super helpful, I just hope that add-ons could be available for the iOS ? Version, will it ever be possible?

Add on for iPad

Version 2.0.54
Kindly tell us is it possible to use add on for iPad
I have been trying but I am unable to do so
I read through the manual, it says go to tools and so and so forth, unfortunately I am unable to find tools , please help
We are using a paid app, please make Addon that work
My second query is , is it possible to get colored fonts for iPad , apparently, no, because no option is available whenever you are editing a card.
Kindly reply

App crashes

While making a card using Apple Pencil the screen just resets to home making me loose all that info without saving. This is really wasting my time and is highly annoying, kindly fix.

Want a refund

saty pal
It’s sad that one has to actually shell out so much money for such a mediocre app. And not to mention there is no trial period to make a decision regarding this.

Image added through Anki desktop is not shown in Anki IPad

Over all app is good. It has a bug. Image added through Anki web is not showed in iPad app.

Images get blurred after adding to the card

Please correct this issue

Application crashes

The application suddenly crashes and when I open it again, I usually lose the Flashcard which I made.
Kindly fix the issue at the earliest
Apart from that issue, it’s a very useful application.

Colour change ??

Can you please answer how to change colours in text while creating flashcards
And there is NO PAINTBRUSH option in my editing bar...can someone please help me out

Very useful, some improvements required

Some features I would like to have that would drastically save time while making cards :
1. An inbuilt OCR (I use Phone to make cards while studying from Book and have to use separate app for OCR.)
2. Cloze feature should have a *switch* to choose between 'all cloze with same number' and 'each cloze with different number'.

Too much reliance on the desktop application

Although I absolutely love Anki and the process behind it, I am slightly disappointed in the iOS app. I hope the developers will read this review and consider some changes.
I am a medical student, and one of the things essential for my every day carry is portability. I do have a MacBook, but I tend to carry and use my iPad Pro more often. As Apple is developing the right hardware and the compatible software for the iPad Pro to function more like a replacement for the laptop, I think at this point, iPad Pro (or any iPad to some extent) is a viable laptop replacement for most people.
Everything I do in my day, I can do on my iPad. The only thing that I have to open my laptop for is to make flash cards in Anki. It is stupid. Why is there no option to make new note types, or even use the ones I custom made on my laptop? This is ridiculous because the Anki app on the iOS doesn’t have to be the companion app for the desktop version when the hardware is plenty capable on its own.
I have no issues paying for an app, and I understand needing to support the development of both the computer and the mobile applications. But it is ridiculous that the app is so limited in function that I am the one who has to compromise, even though I have made my contribution.

Add ons don’t work!! Disappointed!

The Ankiweb add ons don’t work and that’s affecting my output a lot! Is there any solution to this?

Image Resizer

Please add image resize option in editor it will be too much helpful


Please update the app, keeps crashing post iPad update.

The app doesnot remind me to study

Dr. Poisidon200
Why does the app not notify me when i need to study ? Lets say i learnt something today and created a deck. I expect the app to remind me to review it the next day. Instead i keep forgetting that i need to review the information and this defeats the purpose. I purchased this app to automate revision discipline which i lack yet the development team has forgot to put this basic thing in the app.

Add image crop option

Wonderful app helps a lot in studies
But when taking picture there is no option to crop or the image which is annoying cause it adds whole page.sometimes we only want to add certain picture of page or paragraph.

Worth spending $25

must be used. not comparable to any other apps available on iOS.

Image occlusion feature not available

dr t@usif
Image occlusion feature not available....

Amazing app worth the price

inacio Fernandes
I thought a lot about buying the app then I went on the webpage and read your reasons for charging so much for it and it made real sense to me and helped me make a decision to purchase the app.
***Just a minor feedback
1. The new/review Order in the scheduling options will only work for the options that all decks use.
If I create a custom Options group the new/review order changes do not apply to that options group .
I have to set the options group to the mein now to use that feature.
If new/review order changes could also be applied for specific custom options it would be perfect .
Edit : yes I figured that out in time . Thank you .
2. add multiple images at one time instead of going thru the menu every time
Edit : thank you for the tip, I found it really helpful . Else I was individually selecting each photo, I just create the split screen now and drag the image.

Best app for learning anything

Doctor Vimal
Previously I used quizlet but shifted to ANKI because of its features.
Whether you are Science student,Art&Humanities student or even computer Science student.
You need it to learn technical world.
It is life saver for medical students.
Thank you for such an Amazing App.

Amazing work!

One of the best purchases I’ve made!

Best flashcard app ever!

I have been using this app for the last 8 years.It is the best flashcard app.

Please include Inbuilt options to customise the size of the photo taken.


Image occlusion not working in ipad

Image occlusion is not working in my ipad. Is there any solution for this?

Extraordinary Work Damien!!

First of all thanks for giving Anki to us, it is a great software for learning. I am unable to find a ‘give feedback’ option anywhere in the app, please add it if there is none as it makes it easy to give suggestions or report problems. Please make the audio play button smaller and in line with the text as in the windows desktop application. Thank you.

Photos not showing

Occlusion and normal images are not showing on my deck, is there any way to see them?

Can’t undo suspended card

It comes to use when I have to suspend or bury cards frequently for a large deck , and if undo don’t support suspend and bury its very hard for me to rectify when i do a accidental suspension or burial of card

Best flashcard app

Mind blowing

Anki 2.0 - Long way go

I have been big fan of Anki (both on desktop and ipad) for quite some time. Use it daily. It's possibly the best flash card ecosystem available.
I tried the upgrade to Anki 2.0 both on desktop and iPad and they do NOT have the stability and flexibility of earlier versions. Thanks to the detailed instructions of Damien on the website - I have downgraded back to the older versions on both platforms.
What seemed good in Anki 2.0 -- the sync seemed to be seem less without having to use dropbox. Also the input window for adding Facts (notes in the new version) seemed far less cramped.
Whats NOT good -- at least from perspective - removing CRAM from inside each deck is the biggest let down. The Filtered Deck build provides nowhere near the advantage of the CRAM option in the previous version on both platforms. For instance to get all Cards in deck that have the same Type - you need to build a filtered deck - that also disappears (in terms of cards) once you review.
Also lot of bugs in the iOS iPad version in terms of no button coming to navigate in certain screen - issues with orientation etc.
I am sure the developer will listen and improve over time - but for now - strongly recommend sticking to the earlier versions !
Have adored Anki for so long - it will be a pity to see it go in the reverse direction...

Excellent App

Siraj Samsudeen
As a companion to the anki desktop, this app is very good. We should be able to download the decks from this app as in desktop. Also sync should be non-blocking
