By Brainscape

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Find, create, and share SMART FLASHCARDS on any device. DOUBLE your learning speed using the most effective study system on the planet. Keep all your content in sync across Brainscape’s website and all your iOS devices.

Brainscape works by personalizing the TIMING of each flashcard repetition, using proven cognitive science. Whether you’re learning a language, preparing for a test, or just acquiring some fun trivia, Brainscape spaces the repetition of each bite-sized concept based on exactly the right interval for YOUR brain.

All you have to do is rate how well you know each concept, on a scale of 1-5, and Brainscape determines the right time to quiz you again. It's strangely addicting and is scientifically proven to slash your required study time.

So where do all of Brainscape’s great flashcards come from? Three places:

THE WORLD’S TOP EXPERTS. Brainscape partners with top publishers, schools, and educators to create flashcards for subjects as diverse as Foreign Languages, MCAT, Music Theory, SAT prep, AP Exams, Series 7 prep, and Sports Trivia.

YOUR PEERS. Top students, professors, teachers, and businesses around the world have created over 1 million subjects that are available to search on our Marketplace.

YOU! You can easily create multimedia flashcards very easily both on Brainscape’s website AND within the app itself. You can also share your decks with your classmates and collaboratively develop content together.

Creating, sharing, and finding great user-generated flashcards is FREE. And Brainscape's new Pro subscription option gives you access to unlimited premium content AND premium features such as bookmarks, browse mode, card reversibility, an ad-free flashcard creation experience, and a bunch of new features coming in later versions.

The Brainscape Pro subscription can be purchased within the app, in billing increments of Monthly ($9.99 billed monthly), Semiannually ($29.99 billed every 6 months), and Annually ($35.99 billed yearly), as well as a Lifetime subscription option for $79.99.

You can cancel auto-renewal any time by going to Account Settings; the cancellation will apply after the active subscription period is complete.

Definitely Recommend!

I first found out about Brainscape Senior year of high school. My friend recommended it and I absolutely LOVED it! I got it when everything was free, but I liked it so much that when they came up with "Pro" I chose to buy the one year subscription (thinking I wouldn't use it after high school). However, I continued to use it through college and STILL love it! So much that when the year was over I upgraded to the lifetime subscription. This app got me through some of my toughest classes. It also helped me study for HOSA state which I then qualified for HOSA nationals and went even further! I couldn't have done it without this app! I will do anything for my grades and success in life, and Brainscape proved to me that I'm even willing to pay for a subscription to help me study! Definitely recommend! Even if you're not planning on buying the Pro.

the best!!

just the rockinist flashcard app ever! does everything i want it too! u can even export ur flashcard as an excel file to reference the information another way. works beautifully. these developers are geNius! thanks so much gang for making a great app for those of us who need to be reminded of what we need to know. ive used it for school and work and always to great success. the only improvements I'd suggest after years of use is (1) if u could edit cards from the cards (while ur studying them), (2) if you could SEARCH the cards in your library easier (without searching ALL flash cards) with a more generous search bar (because then Brainscape would also be an in INCREdIBLE quick reference guide).

Many great features, a few deficiencies

I have the full Bar Boost set, which I love! I've told many of my classmates about it. However, I've noticed quite a few spelling, grammar, and even content errors, which is worrisome.

Then there is the issue of the main app. I downloaded the free version and it mixed in with my bar cards, which just created a mess and I could no longer get an accurate assessment of my progress on the bar cards. Also, it wouldn't let me study any cards from the main categories. I think it was counting the bar cards as my daily free ones? Even though I paid for the full set.

I ended up deleting the main app after about 10 minutes. I may try again after the bar exam.
