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.

Customer Reviews

Definitely the BEST in it's class!

I am a veteran user of Brainscape. For over 5 years, this has been our go to app for our academics. As a homeschooler, tools are very important; this makes effective tools a precious commodity. I appreciate the premium decks and the ability to make my own subjects and decks within each subject. I also love the ability to see how much my children have studied and mastered the subject matter, with the share and monitoring features. You have both online and in app platforms that integrate seamlessly. One of the strongest values of using Brainscape, is the TOP NOTCH customer support. Their customer satisfaction and experience is definitely their number one priority. You are not alone while using this app and have the confidence that help is just an answered email away! BRAVO BRAINSCAPE...From one of your #1 Fans!!

Best flash card app ever!

I have used this app to create flash cards on my tablet for years now. It lets you create endless decks of flash cards, all organized under personalized subjects.

The "study" feature is so cool - it hides the answer from you until you are ready to see it. The best part is that it has you rate how well you knew each flash card on a 5-color scale, with purple being "Not At All"; orange, yellow and green being somewhere in between, and blue being "Perfectly." The app will rotate the cards that you didn't know perfectly back in until you learn them -- it is like having a personal tutor!

Again, I have mainly used this app for me, personally, to study everything from Spanish to tests for getting my teacher certification.

Coming up short for the price

I have an unlimited subscription but for this price the app is coming up short. I cannot search my lists while in iOS (must use a computer which I don't have easy access to) and I also cannot directly edit a card while studying when I find an error. Instead I am required to manually sift through my entire list of cards which can be tedious when there are over 300 cards in the deck. In addition the inability to upload images in iOS is a dealbreaker. Instead you must use a computer which then renders the decks uneditable in iOS.
In summary:
1. No search function in iOS
2. No ability to switch to edit mode in IOS
3. Can't upload images/sounds in iOS
