CleverDeck uses spaced repetition algorithms to make learning much more efficient and longer-lasting. Tell the app whether or not you remember something by swiping cards right or left. CleverDeck schedules your reviews for you, while giving you new cards each day.
CleverDeck is especially useful for language learners who want an efficient way to learn vocabulary. CleverDeck includes 3000-word decks for most major languages. Decks were created with the help of teachers and language professionals and include high-quality, hand-picked imagery, native-speaker audio, example sentences, and transliterations. Decks are customizable so you can study words as you discover them in your daily life - or you can use the default order, roughly organized by frequency.
CleverDeck can also be used to create completely custom decks and cards. Use CleverDeck to study anything: medical terminology, the periodic table, trivia, and everything else that fits on a card. Cards can include four fields, an image, and audio.
Other CleverDeck features include:
- Sync between devices.
- Customize card display to create audio or image-only cards
- Study cards in multiple ways using siblings
- Customize the spaced repetition algorithm
- Edit our cards to use your own sentences or images
- Create "three-sided" cards to, for example, quiz yourself on foreign language sentences.
- Prioritize cards by category.
- Cache future content if you're planning a trip.
- Visualize your progress and view stats on your retention.
- Quick and very personal support (I'm an indie developer and emails go straight to my inbox.)
CleverDeck is always free for you to create your own decks and cards. An auto-renewable subscription is required for unlimited access to CleverDeck's premium content. The app contains a freemium model that should let you decide whether it's worth paying for.
CleverDeck subscriptions are auto-renewable which means that once purchased they will be auto-renewed within 24 hours prior to the end of the subscription period. You can subscribe to CleverDeck for one month or one year terms. CleverDeck subscriptions provide full access to all of CleverDeck's premium content (lifting the 100 card limit of the free version). Your iTunes Account will continue to be charged until you cancel the subscription at least 24 hours before period end. You can manage or cancel your subscriptions by going to your Account Settings on your device. Payment will be charged to your iTunes account at the confirmation of your purchase.

Ratings and Reviews
I was looking for an app like this because I was intrigued with spaced repetition. I also like how you can opt for what you want to see on the front and back of the cards, for instance when I learn language I like to just hear The word to acquire it by listening before I try to delve into speaking and reading. This app allows me to set it up that way. And then later I could reset the deck and set it up to see the English prompt, then try to speak it from recall.
I wish I could just buy the app and be done with the purchase, because I’m using one and my son is using one and that’s costing six dollars per month now, three dollars each. One glitch that I notified the developer about is that when I slide the category to change settings for that category (example, Spanish), sometimes it is for a different category (example, French). Then other times, it is in sync.
This app is BY FAR the best way to learn foreign language vocab. Other apps have spaced repetition, but only this one has the correct pronunciation (ie. real person, not a robot) and pictures to reinforce. The cards were recorded by native language teachers.
This is the app I’ve been searching for now for so many years!!!! Why would anyone waste their time making inferior cards with Anki?
Is it easy? Of course not. But it really really works with time and patience...
App no longer supported?
Update, 7 Jan 21: So sad this app no longer appears to be supported...was a premium member, but now I can’t log in or access my deck beyond the first 100 cards. So sad! Have emailed the developer several times, but no luck. Loved this app and would add it again if it works.
Been practicing with the French deck for a few weeks - love this app! The graphics are really professional and vibrant, and often interesting or funny, making the words more memorable. The pronunciations sound natural, not too fast or slow, as if I’m overhearing something in real life instead of listening to a robot. The sentences/usage examples are also fun and great for putting the word in perspective. My one recommendation would be to add an option to hear the sentence being pronounced as well.
For me, five new cards a day are plenty, which gives me time to review and really learn the ones I’ve missed without feeling pressured. I can honestly say I look forward to using this app every day - the cards are like a good book I love reading again and again. In fact, that’s the next app I’d recommend: a deck with a sentence on each card, that tells a story as you go along. Please make that!
I hope this developer adds more apps to help language learners - I would give this ten stars if I could. So helpful - thank you!
