Hi all,

The next AnkiMobile update has been approved by Apple, and should be available to download within the next 24 hours. If you run into any problems, please let us know on the AnkiMobile section of this site.

  • Display at native resolution on the iPad Pro.
  • Support iOS9 split-screen multitasking.
  • Support shortcuts to Add and Search from the app icon on iPhone 6S.
  • Sync button now changes to yellow if changes are waiting in AnkiMobile or on the server.
  • Almost all deck options can now be configured within the app.
