Declan Arabic FlashCards is a foreign language vocabulary learning tool by Declan Software. It includes around 1,300 words and phrases, each with a native speaker audio recording. Words are organized into approximately 30 WordFiles with each WordFile containing up to 50 words.
The Learning List: The words are learned based on a Learning List. The Learning List contains a subset of all the words in the WordFile – 10 words by default (although this can be changed by users). The Learning List allows users to concentrate learning a small group of words at any one time. Once a word is learned (by reviewing the Learning List and completing the Exercises) it is removed from the Learning List and is replaced by another, as yet unlearned word from the WordFile. This continues until the whole WordFile is learned.
Exercises: Words in the learning list should first be Reviewed using the “Review Learning List” option. Then users can move to the Exercises which include the Meaning Exercise, the Word Exercise, the Spelling Exercise and the Listening Exercise. Once all the exercises have been correctly completed, the word is marked as complete, removed from the Learning List and replaced by a new word. However, if the user gets one answer wrong in any of the exercises, then all the exercises must be completed again for that one word. This ensures comprehensive learning and retention.
Managing the Learning List: After a new WordFile is loaded the Learning List size is automatically set to 10. The number of words in the Learning List can be set by adding or removing words to the Learning List in the “Review Words” feature. In the “Task” menu select “All Words in WordFile” and then return to the main page. The select “Review All WordFile Words”. As you progress through the words in the WordFile words can be added to and dropped from the Learning List using the “Add to Learning List” / “Drop from Learning List” button.
Loading new WordFiles: To switch to another wordfile simply press the “Load Another WordFile” button and then select the WordFile you desire from the “Load WordFile” table.

Ratings and Reviews
Wide ranging, if expensive app with a good mixture of techniques to allow you to learn a vast array of words. In particular, the verbs and adjectives included are relevant and useful to have for conversation and media work. Two criticisms, mind: the total dearth of updates, and the frequent rendering of ه instead of ة as a feminine marker. Please correct and update - and, whilst you're at it, allow a spelling test of all 50 words in a given learning list without having to complete the listening exercises in 10-word chunks each time.
Ta Marbuta (ة)
The app looks really good Al-Hamdulillaah. At the moment I only have one concern, it's about NOT having Ta Marbuta (ة) on a word that has Ta Marbuta (ة) instead you have the letter ha (ه). For example: ثلاثة is written as ثلاثه with ha(ه). We only pronounce the ha(ه) when we stop but we still have to write the Ta Marbuta(ة) when we write the word.
If you can fix this problem with the word that has Ta Marbuta(ة) then it will be a great help insha-'Allaah, it won't be confusing when you spell two words that goes together ie صلاة الفجر. Then insha-'Allaah you'll have a 5 star app.
Very useful and well thought out app
This is an excellent tool for intermediate level Arabic students trying to improve their vocabulary, especially since the addition of the custom word files with manual addition of new words. My only reservation (and why I withheld one star) is that you can't seem to get your words out of your device and onto your computer (for instance if you want to print them out and revise them on paper).
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
