When I have turned new users onto Anki, they begin by downloading the mobile app and then trying to import a shared deck from Ankiweb. Importing often fails, especially on iOS, I imagine because the apkg file is download to local storage and then imported. This seems to block new users from using the app, and only the determined first-time users are the ones who download Anki desktop, import the deck there and then sync it to mobile.
- Is importing from ankiweb directly to mobile (for first time users) on your roadmap?
- How could importing from ankiweb directly to mobile work? One idea would be have ankiweb send the entire deck contents via JSON/HTTP instead of an apkg file. Then clients could “import” that link and parse the deck contents into a new local deck and sync that with the server… Curious to hear your thoughts.
