StudyArcade is a studying tool for the iPhone and iPod touch, growing every day to become suitable to any need. Using StudyArcade, you can use different games to study nearly any topic imaginable. With over a million facts being studied by students all around the world, it offers a great solution to your studying needs.
The "Discover" section of StudyArcade allows you to download content to study right away, but you can also create your own content or download content from your Anki, ChinesePod, FrenchPod, SpanishPod, or ItalianPod account. Content (called facts) can include pictures, sounds, text, and more. With all of StudyArcade's many options, you are sure to be able to study whatever you need!
A quick overview of how to start using StudyArcade:
* Download facts by opening the "Discover" section, where you are connected to over 100,000 pre-packaged facts for free!
* Open the "Knowledge" section to add a few facts of your own
* Open the "Settings" section to download facts from your Anki or Praxis Language accounts
* Open the "Play" section to use a game to study, such as Flashcards or QuizMe
As you study, StudyArcade uses an intelligent system to choose which facts study. You can choose to cram for tests, review old information, and so on. This Spaced Repetition Software (SRS) helps to tailor your studies to your personal needs.
With the free version of StudyArcade, every time you study 500 facts you earn another download from the Discover section. With StudyArcadePro, you are able to download as many facts as you wish without restriction.
Soon, StudyArcade will support even more features, including:
* Sharing your content (facts) with other users, providing even more free and easy content to access
* Synchronization with the inZania.com server, so that your progress and content is saved online
* A web interface and PC/Mac/Linux interface for StudyArcade, so you can use it on your computer!
I sincerely hope you enjoy using StudyArcade as much as I have enjoyed making it. It is constantly growing and expanding, and I always enjoy hearing feedback and suggestions from users. Please contact staff@inZania.com if you have any comments, questions, criticism, or just want to discuss studying!

Great app, but mispellings.
This app is wonderful, and it really helps with my Spanish and my Japanese studying. However, with Spanish I noticed that several of the words are mispelled in Spanish and English. It wasn't a huge problem for me, since I knew the correct spellings, but I just wanted to point that there are some errors.
Other than that, this app is great for studying outside of class. And the best part is that it doesn't feel like studying! I hope that the developer will increase the limit for the fact packs in the free version. (hint hint)
Running like a Champ!! (Ignore prior posts on bugs-all solved)
I have been using this for a long while now, and was one of the first to complain when it went down with the Anki update. Though it took a bit, the developer update the program and it is running wonderfully now; even better than before in my opinion.
Unbeatable flexibility and ease of use for free. Gotta love that.
Anki updated its version of desktop application to 1.2 and its server also.
Should we expect an update from StudyArcade?
It's a really cool app, and I would really like to use it with Anki.
Kudos to the developer for making it free. :)
