Ratings and Reviews
Not really flash cards...
It's a reasonable app for study, but misleadingly titled in my opinion. I generally associate the term "flash cards" with a study technique where information to be memorized is on one side of a card and you go through the stack and answer questions, flipping them to test your memory. That's certainly what all the other "flash card" apps do! This app doesn't do that, it's just a heap of drawings like the ones in the screenshots with no actual "flash card" functionality for memorization and self-testing.
I would rate this as merely ok, a nice set of quick summaries on a lot of topics, but not quite what I was looking for unfortunately. I already own several books with this sort of thing...
Overall, an excellent way to revise for exams and to provide quick references. It would be great if bookmarking system was incorporated into the app. Looking forward to this much-needed feature in the upcoming updates!
one of the best
I like this one more than any of the other reference cards I've got at this price
