Use cards to capture individual ideas, sketch diagrams, or type detailed notes.

Ratings and Reviews
Good idea, lacking useful features and innovation
I really like the idea of handwriting Flashcards; however, this program is almost useless due to the lack of useful features and very not intuitive to use. My recommendations for future improvements are below:
1. Don't reinvent the wheel. Go get ideas from other flash card apps and combine useful features and get rid of useless ones. Some useful features are:
- easy to use menu (use common sense and use beta testers for feedback)
- handwriting feature with different pen styles and colors
- accessibilities to writing panel and tools (see Notability and similar note taking apps)
- quiz mode, flash card mode, matching, fill in the blank (see Quizlet and similar apps)
2. Full version costs too much for such a poor app. Perhaps with serious improvements. Unless you can make it better than all others on the market, or combine key features, it's really not worth downloading.
3. I'm tired writing recommendations. Look around at other similar apps before wasting time making new ones.
Good luck and hope to see some future improvements.
Too many unanswered Qs = deleted
Since the Index Card app hasn't seen an update since 2015, I looked for competing apps. This could be *the* one, but the dev has left open too many Qs for me to invest in the paid version. Neither here nor at the website can I locate a list detailing the difference between the freebie and paid version. A few of my (predictable!) Qs:
✧︎︎︎ Is the Pro also an island app, i.e. no syncing?
✧︎︎︎ Standard Share Sheet access in the Pro version?
✧︎︎︎ Standard print capability in the Pro version?
Since the dev couldn't be bothered to tell us the differences, I can't be bothered with the app. Freebie deleted. The hunt continues.
Not fully for storyboard!
Unfortunately, storyboard lacks a very important feature: reorder cards. For now the order of cards is entirely free. If you want reorder them you have to do it manually. If there are lots of cards, that could be a nightmare.
the cards in a storyboard are supposed to be in strict order, that is how the story goes. So to be a storyboard app, Cardflow needs add this feature.
I tried the link function, I think it is a meaningless feature.
Thanks for the feedback. It is possible to order the cards by text using Magic Arrange. By prefixing the text with a serial number ("001.", "002.") you should be able to maintain a strict order.
Would love to hear details about your needs, particularly for reordering cards. Feel free to ping us via the support / feedback link. Thanks.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
