Fantastic integration with the Amboss platform in my existing flashcard decks

AMBOSS is worth the money on it's own IMO, and this addon is a nice perk! Really appreciate having it. Small bug, the link to the "support" page doesn't work from the AMBOSS toolbar within the app, but haven't encountered any other issues so far

Awesome, and the reason I bought a subscription.
Anyway of getting rid of the underlying of all the terms though? Very distractiing

the moment i saw an opportunity to rate this, i ran to do so, i honestly can't do anki without amboss anymore and that's just the truth.

Love this add-on! Only suggestion I would have is to allow the option to click, instead of hover, to display the Amboss popup.

Get this and you can practically use Anki as your chief learning source and not just a study aid. Use the hotkeys to save time. Devs are responsive to feedback!

So helpful to keep reinforcing definitions!!

Immensely beneficial to hover over a word/explanation instead of having to enter amboss library itself

Fantastic add-on. Changed how I do Anki.

Great add-on! Totally worth the money especially if you can get a school discount. Remember to change the color of the underline to be close to the background color of your cards so you don't get eye strain.

Big fan. Main reason why I have Amboss is for this addon. You guys did it right on this one

Absolutely gamechanging add-on.

If you don't have this addon you are missing out. This is a must-have for medical school!

The best add-on to have while studying medicine

I'm the first review??? This is definitely one of, if not the most valuable Anki addon for medical school. It's a must if you use Amboss already.
Learning requires 3 steps in sequential order. 1. Understand 2. Remembering/memorizing. 3. Applying/practice.
Anki is valuable for memorizing, but not great for learning/understanding. You should understand cards before doing them, so you aren't just memorizing meaningless facts. This add-on lets you fill in your knowledge gaps directly from within Anki. It is a huge time saver. I tried giving it two thumbs up, but I couldn't. I'm tempted to make another account just to give this another thumbs up.
