    Made custom flash cards with my own subject. Very easy! Very helpful hopefully I pass my test!! UPDATE: It’s Dec 2018 and I still love this app, I’m so glad that the developers keep it updated for the new iOS! It’s a flash card app and it also has a website with the same features. Anyways, you create custom flashcards and each time the card comes up you rate it 1-5 of how well you know the answer if you rate it 1-3 it will come up more frequently, 4-5 will come up occasionally. The app will keep doing this until they are all at 5. I’ve never really liked flash cards, but I loveeee this app!

    First off, I don’t usually write reviews for apps but trust me when I say this app is amazing!!! I’m a student in high school and I use this app for anything and everything that I need to study. It easy to use and you can actually use it anywhere without WiFi or data. It’s not like those other flashcard app that say you can use them anywhere. This app will change your life.
  • Basic info you pay highly for

    Critical pass much better
  • Better than Duolingo or Babbel for languages

    By Debbie Mueller
    I love learning languages with Brainscape The other apps make you go over and over material even if you already know it Brainscape let’s me go at my pace, fast or slow depending on which language I am studying. I use some other resources to supplement my vocabulary and idiom use. Their algorithm for showing me concepts seems to be truly optimized for memory retention. Request to Brainscape: more vocabulary please
  • Life changing app

    This app allows me to study on the go or at home. When I don't have Internet I can write up flash cards on my iPad and up load them when I get internet. The only thing I wish this app did is one let you flag cards so that you can find it and fix mistakes and two that they had an app for windows 10 so that I can write up cards on my laptop with it's full size keyboard and then upload from that app when I have internet
  • Meh. No adding images from app, just via web.

    No adding images from app, just via web. Prepopulated decks don't exactly match so inevitably study stuff u don't need for your actual class.
  • Best way to learn Spanish

    By computerlinx
    I recommend a Pro version because it has more options for you to learn faster.
