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.



  • Not worth the money

    Not worth the money and takes more time getting running than its worth. Use a free tool instead
  • The Search Function Needs Some Love 🤖

    By PrincesLover
    The card browser search function is really horrible! It has a lot of annoying things. 1. It has a problem with Cyrillic uppercase. Looking for the word “котёнок” does’t show the result “Котёнок”. And looking for “Котёнок” does’t show “котёнок”. Although the search query “kitten” will find both variants—“kitten” and “Kitten”. All one can to do is to use a query like “отёнок”. Sorry me, but that’s stupid! 2. The program hasn’t got those useful find options like Match Case and Ignore Diacritics (which is on for Cyrillic symbols permanently, lol). 3. There’s no way to switch the search to the Whole Word mode from the Contains mode. And if you will try to find cards with the word “some“ you will also get results like “somebody”, “someone”, “someday”, etc. That’s not great because sometimes I want to look through my cards and study how a specific word or collocation can be used in various contexts. In this case Anki could be useful not only for repetition of the learned material, but also for the analysis of available data. 4. Also I would like to have the ability to exclude a specific field from search scope. For example I’ve got a very organized field that contains all the references, technical notes and other meta information. All that backstage stuff very often interferences with usual material that brings a huuuge mess in search process. If only I could turn it off on demand... Say, a checkbox like “Remember Last Input” in a field settings — “Exclude the Field from Search”, that grants the behavior as the tags field has. Yeah, it would be great! The program has existed for a long time (and I really like to use it!), but it still does not have many useful functions, and that’s pretty bad, unfortunately. Come on, dear developer! I know you can do this! 🦄
  • Good but not perfect

    By Adewole19970830
    I recently found Anki through internet research and have been using it throughout this whole semester on my laptop I just recently downloaded the mobile version and while I am in pressed for the price it is it should be completely Bug-free. There’s no reason the audio files from my flashcards should have any problems playing for what I paid.
  • Good but pricey

    By LegalLoli
    The iOS version is a bit overpriced.

    Best way to learn for memorizing lots of information and retaining it. The trick is to learn how to make flash cards that work for the material you want to study. A lot of the pre-made shared decks on Anki’s database are the best for studying things already reviewed by others if you’re in need of guidance or a more efficient use of time.
  • It’s good but they should add more

    By bow1929
    I have a computer but I don’t use it for anki, it’s more reliable to use the phone and when using it I wish they added like the “reverse” or typing in the answer ect.
  • Custom Sync Server

    By FlickerSoul
    Is there any chance this app support custom sync server? The internet quality in China is too bad for syncing.
  • Doesn't automatically sync

    By tripwalks
    Honestly confused why this is ranked so high. It's actually unusable as it doesn't automatically sync with cards online and those in deck.
  • 1 Stars didn’t bother reading the manual

    By Escoce
    I have been using Anki and AnkiMobile for 9 months now. First off it has a huge learning curve, but that is typical for any application that puts any real power in the hands of the user. Anki does exactly as advertised. I am not going to explain what that is, but all the 1 star reviews almost exclusively demonstrate the user did not read the manual or expected Anki to be a stay on the rails single faceted type of learning app. It isn’t. What it is is an app that allows you to create your own learning environment(s) that YOU tailor for YOUR learning needs. This app is fantastic for memorizing large amounts of single pieces of information whether that’s language study, or medical knowledge or whatever is appropriate for a managed flash card style of learning. The only thing I would have changed, and I DID recommend it on the support board, is to move deck ordering option to deck options rather than it being a global setting. I have decks I want to see new cards first and other decks I want to see new cards after reviews. The developer responded that it sounds like a good idea and he’ll think about that. That limitation however does not warrant knocking down a star. So 5 stars
  • Refund please.

    This App is so difficult and frustrating to use. I paid $25 because I expected it to be like the working Android version l.
