Although it can be used on its own, I like to think of AnkiMobile for iOS as an extension of the computer application (which runs on almost anything) to be used when you’re away from your computer. Study on your Mac, PC, or Linux computer, sync, then pick up your phone. While you’re waiting for your girlfriend to finish shopping, whip it out and study some of those cards (using the incredible Anki memory algorithm, of course). When she’s done studying, put your phone away and come back home. Sync, and you can start back up on your computer again. It’s great, works well, and is definitely worth the $25 (pretty steep for an iPhone app, but I’m a big fan of supporting individuals who make really great things).
- Sync Anki on your computer with your phone so you can start up right where you left off on the go.
- Nice interface, works well, enjoyable to use.
- A great addition to Anki on your computer — something I can’t live without, now.
- If $25 is too steep, there are other cheaper/free Anki apps in the app store (though I like this one the best . . . and plus . . . support!).
- Add Dropbox to the mix to sync media to your decks, too!
- Both iPhone & iPad supported.
- iOS users have to spend $25 (though this is the only way Anki makes any money, and it feels good to support the creator, I think!).
- Getting things over from your computer can be somewhat difficult at first if you’re not a somewhat tech savvy person.
Anki mobile for iOS is a great app — will be too expensive for some, but if you use it a lot it’s paid back very quickly (as in, you’re being paid back in knowledge, which has a good exchange rate I hear). If you have an iOS device, I totally recommend this app. Make sure you use it a lot, though. There are a ton of 5-minute periods where you can study, you just have to remember you have a pocket full of potential knowledge ready to be studied!
