I’ve been an avid user of Anki for about a year now and, a month ago, I purchased the AnkiMobile app. However, I know that due to Apple’s safety requirements, add-ons can’t be added through the app.
I was wondering whether any native capability for a feature like this (Remaining time (for Anki 2.1) - AnkiWeb) would be coming soon - I know AnkiDroid has a feature like this already.
Merry Christmas too!
This was a built-in feature in Anki years ago, but was removed as it a) wasn’t very accurate if you were taking a variable amount of time/editing some cards/etc, and b) was pretty demotivating when you had a large backlog. It may come back one day, but probably only if those points can be addressed somehow.
Ok; it’s better if there’s not one at all than an inaccurate one. Many thanks for all the hard work you do with Anki once again!
There are plugins for this, but it would be pretty hard if not impossible to overcome the issues listed; how is a plugin going to gauge “motivation”? And also if you step away or spend time editing. There’s a reason all the “time remaining” dialogs in computers are all pretty universally bad.
