Anki is a powerful, intelligent flashcard program. It is designed for serious studiers who need to memorize information as efficiently as possible.
Anki offers a number of things lacking in other flashcard programs:
- A proven spaced repetition algorithm that learns from your answers and schedules reviews at the optimum time.
- Seamless integration with the online and open source desktop versions. You can synchronize all your decks with the touch of a button, and if your Apple device is ever lost or broken, you can continue reviewing with the desktop until it is replaced.
- Support for scientific markup with LaTeX.
- Support for furigana for Japanese.
- A wealth of statistics are stored in your deck as you review, and can be inspected within the app. These statistics can help you plan your future studies, and are a source of motivation.
- Flexible card display format that allows you to display an arbitrary number of fields on the front and back of cards.
Other notable features:
- Full support for offline images and audio.
- Your font and color settings in the desktop client are respected, and scaled to fit the mobile screen. You can adjust the scaling.
- The ability to undo reviews, card suspensions and more.
- Swipes, taps and buttons can all be configured to allow quick reviews and quick access to various features.
While it is possible to add and edit material within the app, initial creation of card decks requires a free AnkiOnline account, or iOS3.2+ and access to the free desktop software. You can use the desktop software to download shared, pre-made decks, and then add those decks to the app via either AnkiOnline or iTunes. More information is available on the support page.
Please note that this app assumes you have had some experience with the free desktop or online versions of Anki already. If you have never used Anki before, please consider watching the intro videos on the Anki website and trying out the desktop version before purchasing this app.
