I cannot log in using ankimobile. My username and password are correct. I double checked and am able to login on ankiweb. When I try to do so on ankimobile I get "Login Failed Incorrect username or password. Please try again" This doesn't work my my second account either.

    I can't seem to reproduce this I'm afraid. Please try changing your password to something else in the Account tab of ankiweb.net, then attempt to sync again - does that help?

    Ok, I have managed to reproduce it. If you make a mistake entering your password the first time, the same mistaken password is getting reused when you try again. Please force close the app, and then after starting it again, tap on sync, and provided you enter the password correctly it should work. If you make a mistake, please repeat the force-close process.


    Sorry for the confusion here, and I'll fix this bug in the next update.

    The force close app on my iPhone technique worked for me. Thanks!
