App Reviews

  • Life saver

    By dvirtuous31
    This app is a lifesaver! It helped me pass my realestate exam.
  • Best study app

    By cvp96
    Especially in the sciences and in standardize test preparation. Love it.
  • Ninja CPA FAR

    By Dbrian514
    Worst, horrible technical support. Trying to upgrade with the Ninja CPA FAR flash cards and they won’t give me access to the new flash cards I paid for. Wasted so much of my time with them and they still haven’t resolved my issue.
  • ONLY CHAPTER ONE Deck for each subject...

    By BarPrepStudentFEB2019
    Extremely disappointed in the MBE Bar Boost flashcards app... although the app advertises that BarBoost “INCLUDES” 52 decks totaling 2,500 flashcards it ACTUALLY only has ONE DECK for the first chapter of each of the eight legal subjects (=8 decks), which averages roughly around 30-50 flashcards (so at most 400/2,500 flashcards AND 8/52 decks the app advertised to “include”). You pay $50 only to have pay an additional fee to unlock the other 44 decks...
  • Dissatisfied

    By victorsmith15
    I love the app but I’m dissatisfied because I upgraded to the pro version to unlock all of my decks inside of the lessons that I was studying but the decks remained locked.
  • Terrible App

    By Pals070
    Makes it hard to cancel subscription. $9.99 each month is wasteful. Now it’s even hard to put a review.
  • Love this app

    By Seawonderful
    I absolutely love this app, however I think one thing you guys should add is the ability while studying the flash cards is to be able to write the answer, instead of just looking at it and rating if you know it or not.

    By lilbit_tori
    Made custom flash cards with my own subject. Very easy! Very helpful hopefully I pass my test!! UPDATE: It’s Dec 2018 and I still love this app, I’m so glad that the developers keep it updated for the new iOS! It’s a flash card app and it also has a website with the same features. Anyways, you create custom flashcards and each time the card comes up you rate it 1-5 of how well you know the answer if you rate it 1-3 it will come up more frequently, 4-5 will come up occasionally. The app will keep doing this until they are all at 5. I’ve never really liked flash cards, but I loveeee this app!
  • Basic info you pay highly for

    By avatarmax
    Critical pass much better
  • Better than Duolingo or Babbel for languages

    By Debbie Mueller
    I love learning languages with Brainscape The other apps make you go over and over material even if you already know it Brainscape let’s me go at my pace, fast or slow depending on which language I am studying. I use some other resources to supplement my vocabulary and idiom use. Their algorithm for showing me concepts seems to be truly optimized for memory retention. Request to Brainscape: more vocabulary please
