I have a Japanese learning app and one of the phrases it gave me was "kare wa watashinohahadesu" and the other was "Kare wa watashi no ani ototodesu."
I was wondering why there was the difference in including the "ani" between who we are introducing.

Hello Rachel - I think you need a new app. Your two sentences translate to
"He is my mother"
"He is my older brother younger brother"

And 'younger brother' isn't even spelled right...

I think you would be doing yourself a favor to just pick up the 'Genki' textbook if you're interested in learning Japanese. It's a good idea to make sure that you get a copy with the accompanying audio CD included ... used copies (which are of course cheaper) may have lost or never had the CD so be careful.
