Flash Card Apps
When I first began learning Spanish, it was important for me to consistently review and reinforce what I was learning. In fact, that is still very important today and will be forever. I reviewed reading, computer and audio materials and would take notes of a few concepts I was learning and glance at them throughout the day. Before smartphones, I used index cards for review. Now I do virtually everything on my PC or my iPhone.
I recently had a need for a flash cards app and away I went to the app store. In my research, one particular website about flashcards apps was very useful. I suggest you visit flashcardapps.info to view information about 167 flashcard apps for the iPhone and iPad.
That website owner gives a few features you need to consider when trying to find the best flash card app for you:
- Ability to download ready-made cards from Quizlet, Study Stack, Flashcard Exchange or the ProVoc library
- Ability to share stacks over wi-fi, bluetooth or email
- Import and export spreadsheets and textfiles
- Ability to track and change your flash card stacks
- Sync across multiple devices
- Sounds, images, text-to-speech
