Rebuilt (final one) from the ground up

PDF2Anki Version 3 is a completely in-house rebuilt application that addresses many of your concerns regarding our last one.

Whilst rebuilding PDF2Anki from version 2 to the current version 3, we have completely rethought how the flashcard generation process occurs with 30+ enhancements, fixes and quality of life features. We heard you about the lacking flashcard amount, the inability to map where the flashcard came from which page, the lack of customisability ... It has now all been introduced into version 3 of PDF2Anki.

As our backend and database has also been rebuilt for optimisation and speed, your current flashcards saved in PDF2Anki v2 is not saved and migrated to the current version. Your plan and subscription will be automatically carried over amongst first sign up with the same email /gmail used from v2 of PDF2Anki. If there are any troubles regarding this, please contact us via the Intercom button at the bottom right corner.

We greatly enhanced the flashcard amount with a redesigned side-by-side interface

Redesigned flashcard editing page

We introduced a dual-view, allowing you to see PDF slides and manage flashcards side by side. You can now easily toggle and switch between each individual pages of your PDF and see which flashcards are generated from each page. This is compatible with either the default flashcard mode, cloze mode or the multiple choice questions mode.

We have addressed many of the stability issues regarding user experience and hope the newer version will bring more stability and refinements. Please don’t hesitant to contact us if you spot any issues or refinement ideas.

As usual, you will be able to view and see your deck history with your associated PDFs in the sidebar and in the main dashboard view to quickly go back to the deck, and download it or review directly within PDF2Anki.
