Anki and Dropbox

Ok I get it that you can’t download pre-made decks to iPad, and that’s a pity! A few years back my laptop was set on top of a hot hob so no laptop just an iPad !

Anyway I’ve been having a look on my Dropbox account and I’ve come across an old folder going back to '21. It is the same as what I was using. If it is the template I was using can I download it to my iPad?

How would I check, how would I download

Thanks for any advice

You should be able to add a downloaded deck to AnkiMobile. Where are you encountering the problem?

Yes, you can download .apkg files and then tap on them to open them in AnkiMobile. You should be able to do so whether it’s via a website download, or via DropBox.

Thanks for the replies but the problem now seems fixed
I had Anki on my iPhone but not on my iPad. After much messing around I remembered you had to sync done so and now everything seems normal

Purely of interest , for I don’t need it now, how would I have transported the Dropbox version the folder and put in into Anki. Dropbox has three files: the read me, what is the image for this word and of course Irish Gaelic (21-3-19).apkg . If I had to do so how would I have moved that from Dropbox to Anki I note that the are all separated words

If I click on the apkg folder I’m advised that apkg files cannot be previewed, To view this file open it on your computer. Could that be because I originally downloaded it on to the laptop

As I said more educational than need :+1:

If AnkiMobile is installed on the iOS device, tapping on an .apkg file should open it in AnkiMobile.
