Rory Shaffer Senior editor

Learning is a process that never stops. Whether we like it or not, we’re going to learn for as long as we live. As learning is a continual process that rarely gets to an end result, a lot of study methods have been invented. One popular method of studying involves using flashcards.
Anki is a quite famous, highly-praised and widely-used program that efficiently combines the study using flashcards with the spaced repetition learning technique.

Anki is not exactly very easy-to-use, but everyone can eventually get the hang of it without much effort. Its interface is neither a plus, nor a disadvantage. In my opinion, Anki’s strength comes from its efficiency, its versatility and from the plenitude of features that it provides, such as the synchronization feature that lets you transfer and store flashcards and related data on multiple computers and devices, the intelligent scheduler or the unique data storage system, to name only a few.

The best thing about Anki is that it is truly oriented towards efficiency. No matter if you need to learn a language, study for an exam, memorize a text or even practice guitar chords, using Anki will ensure that this process will take less time and yet will lead to much better results. This combination of versatility and efficiency leaves me no other choice but to recommend this program to anyone in need of such a tool.

There are a lot of card decks created by other users available for download, which also proves that the card creating process is an easy one and that a lot of other users have already decided to install Anki and use it on an extensive basis.

Pros

  • Allows creating cards that may contain text, images, and sound.
  • A lot of card decks created by other users can be downloaded from the website.
  • Can transfer and store flashcards and related data on multiple computers and devices.

Cons

  • Printing the cards is not supported.

What's new in version 1.2

- Fixed a bug where failing a card didn't reset its interval when per day scheduling was off.
- Set the type in answer box to use the same font as the field.
- Add Latvian translation, and updated other translations, thanks to the translators.
 

Publisher's description

Anki is a program which makes remembering things easy. Because it is a lot more efficient than traditional study methods, you can either greatly decrease your time spent studying, or greatly increase the amount you learn. Anyone who needs to remember things in their daily life can benefit from Anki. Since it is content-agnostic and supports images, audio, videos and scientific markup (via LaTeX), the possibilities are endless.
