I think this is the best study app ever because it is the ONLY app which has taught me something! I also absolutely DESPISE studying, and I think a lot of people do to. But this app makes it way more fun than regular flash cards! Although you do have to pay for a lot of stuff and it is a lot of money, every one must be reminded that IT WAS YOUR OWN DECISION TO BUY IT!!!!!!! THEY DID NOT FORCE YOU!!!!!!! I have a tip for everyone who has the app or doesn't: don't waste your money on an app! I mean, apps are stupid games on a stupid device. Why should you buy stuff that you probably won't use for a lifetime? The people who make the apps can just go and earn there own money out in the streets or in a proper job. Anyway, great app!!!!


Like the app; pretty petty methods of encouraging usage

A cute puppy dies every day I don’t study; seriously? Do a brainstorming session and come up with pithy yet less teenage memes to drive use.


Amazing app

Really well done.
I love the beautiful, easy-to-use design and colors and such
I love the tips and notifications
And I love the idea that you can suggest an edit, which makes it so that the app is in constant improvement
I have only tried the student mode yet, and I'm currently using it for fun and curiosity to learn about the Greco-roman mythology
The way of teaching is really effective and unique; using flashcards and repetition depending on the level of each user, which makes it much more fun and easy to memorize and learn
It's like one of my hobbies to use this app now
I am looking forward to the other mythology lessons after I am done with Greco-roman mythology, and who knows, it's so good that I might just buy brainscape's other lessons varying from languages to history to all different kinds of things I need help with
It is really worth it
Keep it up!
