Finally an offline-enabled Ham Radio study mobile app with all of the features from HamStudy.org!
Software has come a long ways in the last 30 years -- isn't it about time for an Amateur Radio study app that uses some of that new technology? Powered by the same powerful learning engine that runs the free HamStudy.org website, this app finally gives you access to the ham radio study tools from our website even when you're not connected to the internet!
- Study all current US Amateur Radio question pools (Technician, General, Amateur Extra) -- updates can be downloaded for free when they become available. Additional pools, such as the FCC commercial pools and the Canadian pools, are also available for download in the app.
- HamStudy's revolutionary Study Modes work with you to ensure you learn the questions; they automatically track your progress and adjust the pace to keep you challenged but not frustrated. User-submitted explanations help you avoid the pitfall of just memorizing answers. Synchronize with your online HamStudy.org account to prevent data loss and be able to switch devices easily.
- Unlike some apps, once you download the HamStudy.org mobile app you have access to all of the question pools -- not just the US Amateur Radio pools but also the US FCC Commercial pools some international pools as well! New pools and updates to existing pools can be downloading with the tap of a button.
- Our new "Cram" mode is perfect for those more experienced needing a fast start. Simply flag the difficulty of the question as you progress and when you switch back to Quiz mode it will use that data to optimize your learning experience.
- Practice Exams are, of course, a critical part of any study program. That said, we at HamStudy.org don't think Practice Exams are a primary study method. Practice exams are a benchmark tool! Did you know it takes an average of 81 random practice exams to see every question in the Technician pool just once? Our exams are designed to accurately simulate a real exam and then provide feedback on your progress. After the exam, press a button to study the sections where you struggled the most!
- Throughout the process, our statistics will help you track your progress and know when you are ready.
Is this app too expensive for you? Want to try things out? Well, you're in luck! Open https://hamstudy.org in mobile safari for a free study experience with all of the same features as this app! Buy the app to help support our efforts to modernize the world of amateur radio license studying and examination and to study while traveling or away from an internet connection.

Ratings and Reviews
The best $4 you can spend to go from Tech to Extra
I just sat for my exams yesterday. I took all 3 in one sitting. I passed them all; in fact, my highest score was on the Extra, 92%. I started by using the free online version and found it extremely helpful. But then I decided to spend a few dollars to get the app on my phone. I found that I had a lot of free time when I was away from home, away from the computer, so I knew that this app could help me to study when I had free time to spare. The great thing about using the free online version along with this app is that it syncs your progress between both platforms. My background, I have no experience in engineering, and I would rate my math skills as being just average. If you are planning to get licensed, do not stop with just the technician and/or the general license. With this app, you can go from 0 to Extra if you are willing to put in the time and effort.
I used the website to pass my tech. I didn’t care much for the website as I’d spend more time logging in every time then studying questions. This app is wonderful! Syncing the online account seems to be impossible but I just started fresh (not logging in other then my apple account) and it has been great! I passed my general because of the great key word highlights and brief summary of questions I don’t understand. I’m 40% into the Extra pool and after that, this app even has the commercial license exam’s! WOW! What a great app! Even has the Canadian question pool! Absolutely worth the money!
Absolutely amazing app. I used the website to pass my tech, now I’m using the app to pass my general. The way the app highlights key words is helping me tremendously. My only complaints, a night mode would be great. Also when studying flash cards a “I don’t know button” would be helpful. Sometime I genuinely have no clue so I just tap the screen and I happen to hit the right one, then I worry I won’t see that question again. Otherwise, thanks for the great app!
Update: the dev added the idk button. Also passed my general, which I give 100% credit to this app. Thanks again.
Feature requests can be submitted at features.hamstudy.org -- night mode is one that was submitted and has been voted for quite a bit, so it is under development, just has been a bit tricky. We promise it's coming, though!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
