Make your own flash cards and take the pressure out of test preparation. Flashcard Hero keeps track of what
facts you already know so you can focus on what you don’t know and save a lot of time.
Beyond your average-vocab-app: We made Flashcard Hero for those of you who want to fit more than a few words on each card. You can add images, lists, and use text formatting to structure your content. Cards even expand as you add more text so you can take notes during class and turn them into study cards later. All decks can easily be shared with others via the web.
- iCloud Drive integration (compatible with the Flashcard Hero iPhone/iPad app)
- 3 study modes: Answer covered, Multiple choice tests, Typing the answer
- Audio output (text to speech) of text on cards in over 30 languages
- Group cards by topic (e.g. text book chapters)
- Add images from your Mac and the Internet
- Basic text formatting (lists, bold font, italic,…)
- Many deck cover styles
- Difficulty level for each card
- Group cards using the Leitner study system (similar to spaced repetition)
- Detailed study session summaries
- Take notes during class; cards expand automatically
- Import decks you already have (.tsv and .csv format, Quizlet.com)
- Share decks via the web
- Print decks
- Export as PDF and lecture notes
FOR TEACHERS AND EDUCATORS:
- Compatible with the Remote Control feature of the iOS app. You can use the iOS app as a remote to control the study mode on the Mac while you are projecting on a big screen.
A note about iCloud Drive:
Starting with version 2.0 of the Mac app, using iCloud Drive requires at least Mac OS X Yosemite and iOS 8.
This is just the beginning. If you’d like to see a certain feature, let us know through the feedback menu in the app.
What's New in Version 2.6
- Solved problem with image copy & paste not working on macOS Sierra 10.12.4
- Improved importing cards from CSV and TSV files
Would be nice if the study screen took up less real estate. There is no need for the virtual sheet of paper. That and it would be better to have configurable keyboard shortcuts to navigate through a study session. As it is now, it requires a lot of extra hand movements to study a deck. The speaking feature is really useless. Who wants to learn to speak like a robot?
Also, why isn’t the edit mode a table? You’re taking the flash CARD analogy too far. It also takes up too much space and I have to scroll forever to see the next card. At least make this configurable.
Import took a little bit of tweaking, but works great for TSV and CSV. One thing this app does that most others don’t: I can select the specific decks I want to study at one time.
If you could improve the UI and tighten up a few other features, this could be a 5 star app. Right now, the UI makes it a 3 (or even a 2).
