App Reviews

  • Very helpful app overall with some glitches

    By pcbrp
    The overall app is quite good and provided me a valuable certification study aid that is more portable and flexible than a stack of 3x5 cards. The breadth of available topics is huge and the cost reasonable. Ease of use and fast downloading of decks get positive marks. On the downside the decks that I made use of had some inaccuracies and errors. While there is a mechanism for submitting feedback it is very glitchy and relies on the user to know realise the error exists. While it’s probably understandable that given the breadth of topics available that internal company monitoring for accuracy is not feasible it means that “buyer beware” prevails and the quality of a deck appears dependent upon whoever uploaded it in the first place for the quality and accuracy of questions and answers.
  • Good, but...

    By Mtkaczuk9
    It’s a good app if you don’t mind making all of your own cards, but it’s a pain to edit them, or even do some very simple things unless you pay a monthly fee or like $200 for life. It is too expensive, and not worth it. I’d recommend trying some new flash card apps
  • Great Classroom App

    By jpaxtor
    This is by far one of the best apps for teachers. I’m a Spanish teacher, and I use this app all the time for my students. I have used it for years. I always add the vocabulary words for my students because I know they wouldn’t really study vocabulary if I didn’t make it easily accessible to them. This has saved quite a few of my students! They love it!
  • So good!

    My five year old loves it!
  • Using it for test prep since 2014

    By Tingtongchai
    I’ve used this countless times to study for college, pilot license, and career related tests for the past four years. Great system, I have it installed on my tablet and phone. I love that it will repeat the cards you know least more often. Very helpful tool, and beats carrying around 500 flash cards. My only complaint is making cards on the website vs. seeing them on the app. The formatting can get changed and look unclean.the content is still there, though, the line breaks just don’t always happen the way you created the card.
