This is a free lite version which has a LIMIT of 4 decks and 6 cards per deck. The paid version does not have this restriction.
Flashcards Deluxe is an easy to use, yet powerful flashcard app which you can use to study just about anything you want. I use this app for my own Chinese studies, and am constantly improving it to make it better for myself and others.

• Spelling tests (listen to audio and use keyboard to answer)
• Searchable listing of your cards that allows you to easily look up other terms as you study
• Organize decks in folders and combine decks for studying

You can create flashcards either on your computer or directly within the app. If you don't want to make your own, you can browse and download flashcards from the app's Shared Library.
Creating cards on your computer is an easy process of making a two column list of questions and answers in a text editor or spreadsheet, copy/pasting your list into our website, and then downloading it to your device. You can also transfer flashcards using Dropbox, Google Docs or even your own web server.
Praise for the PAID version:

Ratings and Reviews
How is $4 too pricey?
Some reviews have people asking how is the full version worth $4? A pack of 100 flash cards costs $1. Some flash card apps are free. But those flash cards can only be used once and those apps are crrrraaaaap. When you are looking for an app that you will DEPEND on to learn vocabulary, equations, languages, etc. this is going to be an app you will use for the entire life of your phone. Not to mention the creator gives major updates that somehow reinvent the (flashcard) wheel every few months. Angry Birds will only give you a month or two TOPS of fun for $1 and who cares about their updates. So if you are using this app on a daily basis or even a monthly basis, in the end this app will have cost you nothing in comparison to the four measely dollars you invested. I don't understand how people pay $5-$10 on Fifa games and Madden games every year when they give you nothing in return but a few afternoons and two plane trips of entertainment. This isn't just another flashcard app. This is the CREME DE LA CREME of flash card apps and Will always be one of my main 4 apps on my iphone.
The BEST Flashcard app available
Do the negative reviews turn you away?
If answered yes, please read this review and also my review on the full version of "Flashcards Deluxe".
This app has helped me significantly. I got C's and D's in high school. When I finally started college I mostly got C's with a couple of B's and even a few D's. I started using this app for Anatomy & Physiology and my grades sky rocketed. This past year I got straight A's.
Check out my review on the full version of this app. "Flashcard Deluxe" is absolutely the best flashcard program!
Oct. 2011 update
I just finished reading some of the negative reviews; most of them address issues that concern usability. I asked myself after reading the reviews, "Is this operation error or 'operator error"? And have concluded that the complaints stem from the user not taking the time to learn the program.
While at first I admit I was stumped when first learning SOME of the features like creating new decks and cards, I learned to read the manual.
Reading the manuel is crucial to understanding ALL the features found in this app.
The user guide, found on developers web site, addresses all the negative reviews I read.
I've also found the (?) button answers many of the questions I come across when using app.
Don't let the negative reviews scare you away. If you are a serious student and want to learn; buy "Flashcards Deluxe". Once you learn all the features of this great app you will be glad you did.
Great Customer Service
I was looking for a specific feature in a flash card app that would let me create AUDIO flash cards. I want to be able to hear the study material as I work out/clean house, etc (without looking at the screen or having to "flip" cards). Well this app works beautifully! I thought I would have to record my own voice "saying" the material on the flashcards, BUT this app has a "text to speech" feature that does it for me!! Now I can even study via Bluetooth as I drive to work! Awesome! I say great customer service because I emailed the developer and he responded with my questions right away with a personal email. Check out his blog question and answers on-line too. Very helpful. I am def willing to pay $4 to someone who CARES about the app, WORKS on making it better, and RESPONDS to what people want in a study tool. May you make millions--here's my four bucks in the pot! ;) $$$k
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
