I have been using Anki for a year with no problems. Last week I purchased Anki Mobile so that I could use flashcards on the go, but no media shows up on the cards on my mobile device. I have checked the box “Synchronize audio and images too” on my desktop app preferences, and I have left the desktop app running all night to give it time to sync everything. When I “Check Media” on my mobile device, it essentially tells me every file is missing. Most of this media is from Anking, but some of it is screenshots from flash cards I’ve made manually.
Also, I can no longer search for Anking cards by tags in my desktop app. All my tags are still typed out in the “tags” box when I edit at my cards, but it’s like Anki isn’t recognizing them as tags. When I select a tag, it says “0 of 0 cards shown.” This essentially makes my entire Anking deck useless. I don’t have the same problem with the cards that I have made and tagged manually.
This has been frustrating because not only was the $25 app mostly useless; it also messed up my desktop cards.
