Learn how to quickly navigate your Anki Remote
The goal of this guide is to help you master your Anki Remote in 2 minutes.
Power ON: Press the START button until the Blue LED is on (about 3 seconds). Ensure you are pressing the button down fully (don’t worry it can handle it).
Power OFF: Put the Anki Remote in the GAME mode and hold the START button until the Blue LED disappears. Another option is to disconnect from Bluetooth and then hold the START button until the Blue LED disappears.
Pro-tip: To check if your Anki Remote is on or off, just press the START button for 1 second. If the light flashes blue, then your Anki Remote is on.
If you want to connect to a second device, read this section.
We have 2 pre-programmed modes built into the Anki Remote (based on popular demand from previous customers). Let's go through how to access the modes and the differences between the two.
How to switch between the two modes:
The back of the Anki Remote has the modes labeled.
KEY mode is set up this way for the visual learners who would like their Anki Remote answer keys to roughly resemble the spatial location of Anki.
GAME mode is set up this way for the Anki people who want their answer choices to go clockwise. Notice that both in Game and Key mode, the Spacebar and Good mode are closest to the center. This is important to shorten TDT (thumb distance traveled).
To customize your Anki Remote, download the Anki Remote add-on from AnkiWeb or add the following code under your Anki Add-ons:
Once you have the add-on, you can just click on any dropdown menu and change any button to whatever function you want. If there is a function you don't see, email us at [email protected] and we will try to integrate it in.
We highly recommend getting the Anki Remote addon because:
To ensure that your Anki Remote does not disconnect during your Anki sessions, we added protection to the Bluetooth connection.
However, this means that if you want to Anki on your iPad instead of your laptop. You should go into Bluetooth settings and click: "Forget This Device" or right-click Anki Remote and press "Remove."
Your Anki Remote should automatically enter pairing mode (signaled by the flashing blue lights) and will be ready to sync with your other device.
If you plan to frequently switch between multiple devices, we recommend just disconnecting from Bluetooth at the end of a session. This will let you just turn it on and connect instantly.
