Flashcard Hero

By Kitestack Software

Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.


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.

Purchase includes FREE iPhone app so you can study your cards on the go.

A note about iCloud Drive:

The app does work with iCloud Drive under Mac OS X Yosemite and iOS 8. If you have problems getting it to work, please get in touch through email (or use the feedback button in the app) and we’ll figure it out. So far, we could help everybody who got in touch.

What’s Next?
This is just the beginning. If you’d like to see a certain feature, let us know through the feedback button in the app.

[1] Cards should be in “tab separated values” format, no text formatting, multiple lines per side are OK.)

What's New in Version 1.9.2

iCloud: On Mac OS X Yosemite, the iCloud upload status is now updated as soon as the deck is uploaded to iCloud.

Customer Reviews

Easy & intuitive, great potential, & very responsive developer

I was hesistant to purchase a paid flashcard app given that there are so many free options out there, but ultimately I’m glad I did. It’s very user-friendly, and one of its coolest features is that it utilizes .pdf files for native import/export, so when you export your cards (i.e. if you wanted to print them), they’re quickly available in a pdf file —so if you wanted to, you could open said file in any pdf app and study/annonate/modify etc. Developer is also very receptive to suggestions for improvement and is prompt with responses. There are definitely some additional features/capabilities I’d like the app to have, as noted in other reviews, but what warrants the 5 star rating in my opinion is my interactions with the developer thus far.

Great App… except for iCloud syncing

The app is versatile and adaptive to just about any scenario in which memorization of facts, people, or concepts is desired. I have used the app to memorize faces to names, pertinant facts about an institution, and to gain better understanding of difficult concepts. It is best used across platforms by sending a pdf file from the Mac app to the iOS device (via email, message, etc.) then opening the pdf file in the flashcard hero app for the device. What unfortunately does not work is the syncronizing in iCloud. I’ve lost and corrupted files trying this technique. Better at this point store the files on the local Mac computer and share the pdf file between platforms, as flashcard hero opens them without error.

solid performing app- a few suggestions

I really like this app’s interface- it is clean and visually appealing.
I also appreciate how it syncs with icloud automatically and will show up on my iphone (free iphone app!).
A few suggestions which would make it a 5 star app:
1) if i’m in “study mode” on my laptop, if i put too much info on my card, i can’t rate (“easy” “unsure” “hard”) my card because the top is covering it- please make the cards “scroll-able” for the laptop app.
2) when i switch in and out of the app, the deck restarts- it would be great if i were given the option of starting over or resuming from where i left off.
3) I would like to be able to edit the card while in study mode; esp w/o losing my place in the deck
4) on the iphone app, it would be great if the card “flips” when you tap the screen, instead of swiping.

but even in its current form, this app is still worth the money!
