Ideas for Running Anki on your Mobile Phone

Here are some thoughts I posted to the Anki forum. Like everyone hooked on Anki, I'm trying to get something running on my phone. It looks like I'll be getting a new phone with Android to run ankidroid, but thought I would offer some simple ideas up here:

1. Most phones have camera/photo support. If it were possible to export your anki queue as jpg images you could copy them to your phone and review using the photo browser. Cards you answer correctly would be deleted as you go so you can easily re-review incorrectly answered cards. The export could include front and back of the cards on a single image (just cover the answer with your credit card), or separate them into to sequential images.

2. Many devices can read text files (even my ipod nano), so an export of your anki queue as single or multiple text files would be a lot better than no anki at all. You would have to scroll through the text document on your ipod/phone/camera to review.

If I don't get a new phone I may end up implementing these ideas, but for now my preference is for a better phone.
