Best flash card app for learning languages


I have tried other flash card apps. I am using this one because because you can easily add words to a prior list (even import a huge list), easily find words you added via alphabetical list and search (great for when you notice an error and need to change a card) and the editing is fast and easy (although you can’t edit on the fly/within a lesson, nor mark words for later editing).

Still I’ve dumped both Quizlet and TinyCards because of the pain they cause if you want to edit your list or find a card.

My favorite application


One of the most useful application I've worked with. I really like its simple and clear design as well as possibility to increase my language level.

I like the app


It is one of the best apps I've ever used. everything is very accessible and understandable. But need to fix some bugs. Thanks
