I would very much like to use the Anki deck made by hinekidori, 10k Vocab by WK level. Problem is, I can download it on my ipad mini using the MEGA app, and I have installed Ankiapp, but I can’t open the deck in Anki (i.e. I haven’t found a way to do it). I have also fed the anki search engine all kinds of things, but I couldn’t find it. Help?
I have it running on my iPad. Here’s what you do:
- Install Anki app on my MacBook Pro. That is always the first step. It has to be on a desktop / notebook computer.
- Download Hinekidori’s MEGA file.
- Import Hinekidori’s file into the desktop / notebook version of Anki. (Use the import button at the bottom.)
- Create an account on the ankiweb web site.
- Synchronise your Anki deck (with the AnkiWeb server) by clicking on the circle button (two arrows chasing) on the top right corner.
- You will be prompted for your AnkiWeb username and password.
- After the synchronisation is complete, you will notice that you can access the same deck on the AnkiWeb site.
- Now, go to the iPad.
- Install the Anki app.
- I can’t remember exactly what I did next. I would suggest tapping on “Synchronise” and hope that Anki asks for your AnkiWeb username / password. That should lead to the download of your deck.
Since reading your question, I opened my iPad and noticed there is an “import from iTunes” option. You might save a lot of time, and avoid using the AnkiWeb site, if you simply place the “collection.apkg file in the Documents folder via iTunes”.
Have you found this app? AnkiMobile
I might have to sync via Anki server only, not via MEGA app; that is, you need the desktop version of Anki too.
Downloading via iTunes made me search for the corresponding button. Instead, I found under Help a link to a download site from anki, via which I can import stuff from other apps, i.e. Documents 5 by Readdle and Dropbox. So it should work now without desktop, fingers crossed. Anyway, thanks for your help!!
