What is an APKG file?

The APKG file format was developed by Daniel Elmes as a data file type. These .apkg data files are generated by the Anki program. This software allows users of Windows desktops and laptops, Mac OS X computers and widely used mobile platforms like Android and iOS to create digital flash cards.Exported digital flash cards that are designed using the Anki software are stored in these .apkg files. Version 2 of the Anki program uses the APKG format.To open these APKG files, simply use the Anki software. Other newer versions of this program have compatibility support for creating and opening .apkg files. Older versions of Anki use the .anki file format.

Software that will open, convert or fix APKG files

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
