Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.


An easy to use interface:
Organize your cards in decks, folders and smart decks. When selecting a deck, its cards will be shown in a table. Each card has a progress indicator so that you see your overall performance at a glance.

Smart decks, LaTeX formulas and exporting to iPhoto
Smart decks allow you to specify a set of rules that determine which cards the deck will contain. For example, you could have a smart deck that always contains cards you recently studied and answered wrong.

Flashcards comes with a formula editor. The formula editor lets you create graphical formulas by typing in a LaTeX style text. For example, you can then drop the formula on any card. That’s the best way to learn formulas of nearly any complexity.

Do you own an iPod or an iPhone? Great! Flashcards lets you export decks as a series of images directly to iPhoto with just a few clicks. You can then use iTunes to sync them onto your iPod or iPhone and study on the go.

Customer Reviews


I initially favored this app over other flashcard apps until…

Several crashes in the midst of making decks caused me to lose everything.
An update deleted all my decks (To developer's credit, the problem was resolved…. eventually, unfortunately, it was right before a test)
Mac and iPad versions do not sync and are in no way related.
Not user friendly…
You can only use two sides.
You can't customize decks very easily.

I contacted the developr to ask him about syncing between devices, but I did not receive a response.
Consequentially, I have to give this app a poor review.

Need I say more? Do yourself a favor and purchase iFlash which syncs between Mac, iPad and iPhone.

Crashing when I run Study Program

Developer response was slow but got crashing problem resolved. I am increasing rating.
<Need some serious quality control. One update deletes all cards, now this update crashes when I try to run it.>

Not worth buying

•You can't Change the names of the folders or decks
•Often times doesn't cache the contents on the back of the cards after you type them so it deletes everything and you have to re-type it. and hope it keeps it

• the review style is okay (type in answers)

This app has potential to be great but Currently isn't worth wasting your time/money on.

developers need to do some sreious testing before releasing another version/update
