    • Bulk export all of your existing starred words
    • Bulk export all of your starred words with a certain tag (Starred tab / long-press on tag)
    • Auto-export flashcard whenever you star a word
    • Four card types:

      • Phonetic Question – answer is the hanzi and meaning
      • Meaning Question – answer is the hanzi and pronunciation

    • Click on Phonetic (or play button) to hear audio
    • Click on “Links” in answer to quickly view the word in many of the supported websites (e.g. hanzicraft, characterpop, baidu, jukuu)
    • Anki supports the same tagging system as Hanping, so your tags are carried over to Anki when you export
    • Create an Anki account so that you can sync to study your words on the Anki website or any other Android/iOS device you have an Anki client installed
    • Note: exported flashcards are not clickable (e.g. cannot play audio) when studied on Anki clients other than AnkiDroid

    Nice work! I bought the pro version of the app because of the ankidroid export function. I also bought the abc dictionary for the example sentences. Could you include the example sentences in the generated vocabulary cards? And more options in general to customize the anki export feature would always been Nice 🙂 . Thank you.

    • Hi, thanks! It’s quite tricky deciding what to include/exclude from the flashcards. I tried exporting the entire definition but often the ABC C-E is too verbose for when people want to quickly check the answer. You can also click on the Hanzi to see the full definition.

      Making everything customisable would be very useful (and difficult to implement). I’ll look into it. Thanks again.

    Hi. Is there any way to add just the Hanping voice files to Anki cards? I already have my own cards, so I only want to add the voice files.

    • There is no way to include Hanping audio files in the Anki deck. However, you can include a Play button that uses Hanping to play the audio. This would only work on Android of course. Please see the Hanping Anki card templates and CSS for more information.
