Pretty good except....
I was using this app to help my daughter with special needs study vocabulary, science, and social studies subjects. Creating the cards manually is pretty easy, my daughter sometimes does it herself. You can also create different types of tests like fill in the blank, and multiple choice. The biggest problem I am having is that when taking the multiple choice quiz, the app does not tell you if you got the answer right or wrong. It does give you a score after the quiz is completed, but I have not been able to understand what the number means, nor does it tell you which cards you got wrong. If you take the practice session you can see right away if you select the correct answer. Unfortunately the practice session does not give you a score. This method would be fine if I was using the app myself, but it makes it difficult to track my daughter's progress.
This is a great app! Highly recommended!
SAS Flash Cards is a great app. You can create your own flash card decks and even add pictures and sound. I have been very impressed with it. I use it all the time to review for my college courses. The development team is also very responsive. When I had an issue, I was emailed back for additional information within about 30 mins and had a resolution within about an hour and a half.
You can share your own decks with others and there are a lot of user created decks that are pre-made and available for download to the app.
The design of the app is very attractive and there are a lot of features this app has that other similar apps don't have. I recommend this app highly for anyone studying for exams or school.
The current version has a couple of very important omissions
The current version has a couple of very important omissions:
1) Inability to save user created decks to a user’s computer. The only ability to upload to SAS servers is not enough and not practical if a deck is created for a personal use. I am studying a new language and I add words to a deck every couple of days, but I cannot share my deck (from iPad) to my iPod. Would be good to have an ability to use iTunes file sharing or just e-mailing decks.
2) For the back of the cards (solution/answer) it is needed to have a possibility to add images also as the part of the solution/answer.
