The new version of the Apple watch (series 4) has a significant improvement in its battery life. I'd love to do some reviews using my watch. There's a speech function in the accessibility of Apple devices that allows TTS on-the-fly generation (https://www.reddit.com/r/medicalschoolanki/comments/9t383u/how_to_use_tts_with_ios_anki_app/). Please, make Anki available to Apple Watch! :)

    Hi Nicolas,

    The 4th/5th gen watches are certainly an improvement, and I'm continuing to keep an eye on demand for this, but I'm afraid it's not at the top of the todo list at the moment.

    Just Wanted to chip in that I'd be very happy if this existed too.

    I'd really want to do anki flashcards whenever I can take a minute on my Apple Watch!

    +1 yeah this would be really really useful with the loads of medschool anki I review. Maybe a swipe left/right for again/good & hard press for options like going back to decks? Or flexible settings in the ankimobile app.

    I read every post that is made here, and appreciate it is something some of you are quite keen on. A watch app may come in the future, but I'm afraid it's unlikely to happen in the short term, as there are other tasks that will benefit a greater number of users that need to take priority.

    I'm skeptical that in the use cases commonly cited here (especially medical school students) that having ANKI on a watch is necessarily superior to or more quickly accessible than on a mobile device. Don't get me wrong - I appreciate the desire to insert ANKI into every spare moment, but I think if you really sat down and clocked how much extra time you spent on the extra time needed to use the phone version, the time savings and usability gains are largely negligible. There is of course the potential situation where a watch is preferable because using a phone would be frowned upon (for some reason checking a watch in some cases is less socially unacceptable than checking a phone).
