Index Anki cards in iOS/macOS Spotlight


It would be a killer feature if all our cards are indexed in spotlight, and we can search them instantly and when clicking on the result, it takes us directly to the card to review/study it.

I use Anki mostly for social/humanitarian studies, and in a particular situation I would like to remember something from my cards. Like, I’m sitting with a group of academics and I would like to mention some recent stats on rape issues in the world. I can immediately search the card using spotlight, see it and its answer, study/review it. This effects the brain because I interacted with the card in a unique time/place. Studies show that when you link an information (card) with some specific time/place, it would be harder to forget it later.

On iOS you can trigger a search of your Anki notes with a long press on the app‘s icon already
