Flashcards that put learning on auto pilot and help you to retain information MUCH longer with less effort.

How it works-

SmartCards+ suggests a daily review based on your ongoing performance on each flashcard. Suggested reviews are scheduled based on a sophisticated algorithm that predicts when you are likely to forget a card and shows it to you before that happens. Using proven spaced repetition concepts, cards you know well will be shown less and less over time while cards you forget will be reviewed more frequently until they are back into long term memory. It's an amazingly efficient way to learn and retain large amounts of material.

Cram with Custom Reviews Anytime-

SmartCards+ has smart filters to help you easily create custom reviews based on your needs. Easily review cards based on tags, performance over time, recall strength and more.

Create your own flashcards or import premade flashcard decks-

Easily create your own flashcards with text images and sound. You can also import pre-made decks from other popular flashcard programs.

Already Indispensable

I’ve only been using this for two weeks and I know I would be floundering without it. I am learning HànZì (Chinese characters) and as the number of characters I am supposed to know increases, the greater the challenge in remembering them all. I am also learning spoken Chinese and that means even more to memorize.

Smart Cards allows me to import the ANKI decks from both courses, prioritize cards I’m having trouble with (the app already keeps track of the ones you don’t know) so I don’t waste time on characters, words or phrases I already know well. The decks I’m importing have a small sound clip with the correct pronunciation. SmartCards handles those seamlessly.

There are features to this app I haven’t explored yet and I’m sure I’ll get around to it. But, if I can use the app ‘straight out of the box’ and have it work out for me, I think that’s a win for me. And if it’s working this well, that’s five stars in my book.

I am using this for French and Cisco CCNP studies and I love it. I find it much more user friendly than Anki and the interface is modern and easy to use.
The spaced repetition algorithm works very well for my brain and I am memorizing much.
Getting decks off of the Anki website is a snap, I have not tried getting decks off of Quizlet so I can’t speak to it.
Also, you can’t beat the price for a year of use, around $7 is way better than over double that for Anki’s app.
This is a winner.

Easy to use app, but I can’t use the camera feature

This app is wonderful, I use it for medical school and I find it easy to use, however you have to finish a whole deck before it logs your progress, like you can’t do half the deck, close the app and start later, it will delete all your progress and act as if you never did any of the cards in the deck. I can’t get the camera feature to work. When I try to take a picture of illustrations the camera just shows up black as if there is nothing to take a picture of. It is the only app that does that, my camera works fine, so I have to take a picture with the camera, save it, and then add it into the flash card, but I’d save a lot of time if the camera just worked.

Progress is always logged- you don't need to finish the whole deck!

The camera works- but you need to grant the camera permission either the first time you use the app or later in the settings app.
