Anki Mobile takes up too much storage

Is there any way to not download cards onto my phone. It’s taking up too much storage. Is it possible to do it only online on my phone with wifi so that the cards don’t need to be downloaded?

AnkiMobile is designed to function offline, so it needs to download your media files up front. If you need to free up space, there are a couple of things you could try:

  • reduce the number of automatic backups in the preferences screen
  • use the “check media” function to clean up any unused media files
  • split some of your decks off into a separate profile, by using the computer version to export certain decks, then deleting them from your main profile.
