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.

- Basic text formatting (lists, bold font, italic,…)

Great, wish I found it earlier

reallly works quite well, I bought the Mac (OSX) and iOS versions and syncing works perfect it even syncs your progress learning and not just your flashcards.
One very minor suggestion is that imo it repeates cards too soon regardless of whether you choose “repeat soon” or repeat later” (which I think is “Hard” and “not sure” on the iOS version), Again though it works awesome nice polished interface:). I highly recommend importing spreadsheets (CSV) if you want to make lots of cards quickly.

Getting better with time!

As a medical student, I am all about efficiency and practicality. Initially I was somewhat disappointed with the application. It was not as intuitive as I hoped, but I kept toying around with it and find it quire useful. After several weeks, I am 100% satisfied with it. One of my initial frustrations with the product was from the autocorrect feature, but that can be disabled. Overall, I would recommend it to anyone and it beats keeping up with multiple decks of paper flash cards.

An Excellent tool for studying!

This is a very useful app. Its creators should be rewarded with at least an Essential award from the App store. Its intuitive design is easy to use quickly and it works seamlessly well with iCloud and my iPhone. I only wish I started using this app long ago in Grad School; flashcards are an effective, but often forgotten tool for getting a lot of information organized inside one’s head very quickly. Well Done!
