AnkiMobile Flashcards Review

Whati is AnkiMobile Flashcards

Anki App is a cross-platform mobile and desktop flashcard app. AnkiMobile like Reji uses spaced repetition to help users memorize and retain information but is a little less user-friendly. Anki is available for both desktop and mobile, which makes it great for everybody, no matter what device you use. 

Anki is available in 48 languages, including Greek, Portuguese, traditional and simplified Chinese, Thai, Hungarian, Russian, English, and more. It is compatible with Android, iOS, FreeBSD, macOS, Windows, and Linux.

How does it work?

As far as its interface goes, Anki keeps things simple. It’s pretty intuitive but sometimes a little confusing. At first glance, you’re not likely to understand what a filtered deck, for example, is.

Anki has one standard study mode – card flipping. You decide how many cards you want to study per day. Then, Anki will display a word, you check if you’re correct by hitting “show answer”, and then categorize the word again, hard, good or easy which corresponds to a time interval of 10 minutes, 4 days, 7 days or 10 days when you will next be tested. Anki then keeps track of which cards need to be reviewed when so that you won’t forget any. That’s actually a pretty neat feature. But sometimes it gets a bit repetitive.

Creating a new deck in Anki is definitely more labor intensive than Reji. You’ll need to add all the info yourself, one flashcard at a time, which can be time-consuming for languages with different alphabets, characters or accents you’re not familiar with. You can make text-based cards with words or cloze passages but the cloze feature is far from intuitive. The good think about Anki is it’s highly customizable. The bad thing about Anki is, you’ll have to invest some time to learn how to customize your own flashcards.

Anki does, however, have a large database of public user-created decks to choose from which list user ratings, how many cards they have and what type of content they contain.

How much does AnkiMobile cost?

AnkiMobile costs $24.99 on iOS and free on other platforms.

How to use Anki Cards

Anki cards are basically digital flashcards that you can use on both your computer and your mobile device, but they’re so, so much more than that.

Anki only shows you words that you’re on the verge of forgetting. This little trick of knowing what terms to show you, and when, is known as Spaced Repetition. It’s only one of the features of Anki. Nonetheless, let me explain what Spaced Repetition is, and why you absolutely need it in your language learning life.

The Anki app works like this: you plug in your vocab, review your words for the day, then tell Anki how easy or difficult those words were to remember. You do this by selecting: easy, medium, or hard. Anki uses this information to plug these cards into its algorithm. It then waits longer and longer to show you the cards that were easier for you to remember, and shows you the most difficult ones (the ones you got wrong) right away, as if they were brand new.

Overall Rating

Anki is a more straightforward learning platform, unlike Quizlet, which has gamification qualities. This site uses spaced repetition technology, an intellectual science technique that enables fast and extended memorization.

The program allows you to create flashcards and decks, or import decks made by other users. Its approach is very similar to Quizlet’s and can benefit anyone who needs to memorize things.

Duolingo and Memrise, for example, are really pretty programs that attempt Spaced Repetition but don’t quite hit the mark. Nobody does flashcards better than Anki cards. Pretty is great, but it’s not everything.
