Love it! But needs Dark Mode

I love the app and find very useful to study. The only issue I have with it is that it doesn't have a dark mode. Staring a white screen can be very straining on the eyes which prevents me (and I'm sure other user) from using it as much as I could. Otherwise, great app!

Developer Response ,

Hi there, you beat me to it by one day! An update (v2.9.2) with support for macOS Mojave's Dark Mode is uploading to the App Store right now :) If you run into anything else, let me know. I'm always open for feedback. Cheers, Rico (the developer).

Helped me pass my accreditation exam

I bought Flashcard Hero to prep for my APR exam. It was the first test I'd taken since college. I was never a flashcard person, but I couldn't bring myself to study from a giant PDF. This program and its iPhone app component made all the difference. After I turned the study guide into a series of flashcards, I turned those moments of micro-boredom on the train, waiting in a line, etc. into multiple choice moments. The program offers an impressive range of features for the modest price. I used them all -- even the remote control option! It prevented studying from feeling like a burdonsome chore, and I passed the exam on the first try.

Well worth the purchase!

I downloaded the Lite version and quickly purchased the full version using the in-app purchase option. I also purchased the companion iOS app. This app is awesome, and has helped me tremendously. My favorite feature is the iCloud Drive integration; everything stays in sync perfectly between my Mac and iPhone. I mainly use dictation to write my flash cards, and that works great and speeds up the creation process. The study features are great as well.

I never buy apps, but I am sure glad I bought these. Highly recommended!
