Flashcards Deluxe is an easy to use, yet powerful flashcard app which you can use to study just about anything you want. I use this app for my own Chinese studies, and am constantly improving it to make it better for myself and others.

You can create flashcards either on your computer or directly within the app. If you don't want to make your own, you can browse and download flashcards from the app's Shared Library.

Creating cards on your computer is an easy process of making a two column list of questions and answers in a text editor or spreadsheet, copy/pasting your list into our website, and then downloading it to your device. (Note: iPod users will need Wi-Fi with internet access to import.) You can also transfer flashcards using Dropbox, Google Docs or even your own web server.

Ratings and Reviews

Very nice and flexible


I have looking for a flashcard app for a while and for me this is the best. If offers just the set of features I needed without the unneeded fluff I see in other apps. Creating own decks is really easy. The only thing I would say is maybe a bit of work is needed on navigation but overall it's very usable. I would recommened it for sure.

Great but....


This is the best Flashcard app I've ever used, well worth its weight in gold. However, please please please (pretty) please bring back Quizlet sync support! I'm lost without that. This app got me through my degree, please support my specialty studies by bringing that back :)

Simply the best flashcard app!


I like to learn new stuff, either because I need it for work, or simply for my own good. When I got my new iPod touch, I just HAD to get myself a flashcard application.

But I am not the kind to just download whatever app there was: I searched and tried and compared just about every flashcard app available to find the very best one.

I have been using this particular application for a while now, and quite extensively, too! In fact I use it many times per day, every day. Currently my main focus is on learning swedish and spanish, but it works for just about everything you want to burn in your memory :)

The only thing that's missing for my own usage is a way to have the app automatically split large decks into manageable number of cards during initial learning. But I haven't found any app doing it to my satisfaction anyway, and this developer was very receptive to the idea.

So all in all, this app is very complete, very easy to use, works flawlessly and if you ask my opinion, it's a real BARGAIN at that price. It's been worth a lot more to me!!

Now my friends are surprised by how quickly I'm making progress on my swedish! I'm really happy about that and that's why I took the time to review this excellent piece of software!
