Make your own flash cards and take the pressure out of test preparation. Flashcard Hero keeps track of what facts you already know so you can focus on what you don’t know and save a lot of time.


With the free two week trial, you can try all features of the Pro edition. After two weeks you can either upgrade or continue to use the app for free to study your own decks or those made by others.


We made Flashcard Hero for those of you who want to fit more than a few words on each card. You can add images, lists, and use text formatting to structure your content.

- Write cards on your iPhone/iPad

- Add images

- Group cards into topics

- Text formatting & lists

- Find and study only difficult cards

- iCloud Drive support (syncs with the Mac app)

Study Options:

- Memorizing cards by covering the answer

- Multiple Choice tests with randomly picked or predefined answers

- Supports studying with the Spaced Repetition System (Leitner Box System)

For Teachers and Educators:

- Compatible with the Remote Control feature of the Mac app. You can use the iOS app as a remote to control the study mode on the Mac while you are projecting on a big screen.

People use the Flashcard Hero Mac & iOS apps to study many different subjects. Here’s a short list of the most popular subjects based on the over 2 million cards that users have shared among each other so far:

- Medicine (anatomy, physiology, pharmacology, genetics)
- Psychology
- Law & business administration (economics, marketing, international law)
- History and politics
- Languages (Latin, Chinese, Greek, Italian, Spanish, German)
- Social sciences
- Music and music theory
- Space physiology (how cool is that?)
- Many more…

You see a lot of subjects in the top ranks where people have to memorize a lot of “structured” information. That’s because Flashcard Hero is designed specifically to go beyond language learning, offering more room on each card for facts, lists, and images. You can also organize cards into topics (to match chapters of a text book, for example).

Great app!

Really great app for studying. I use it study for the CCNA, French, programming, electrical engineering concepts and terms and probably will use it for a whole lot more! If you have a iPhone, you can upload your cards to the icloud and then download icloud on your pc and access the cards anytime on any device. Same thing can be accomplished with Microsoft OneDrive I'm sure.
Best part about it though is that it has a simple, user-driven algorithm based on three ratings your give the card (easy, unsure, hard). It makes the practice of repetition way easier.
It also has a multiple choice mode that is helpful. There is a lot of customization to the two different modes. Finally, I sent in a request to the developer and he responded very quickly, which is a nice plus!

Good, but can be so much better

As a graduate student pursuing my doctorate degree, I find this app extremely useful for easy and efficient exam preparation. I use this application on my iPad with a connected keyboard. As I type up the answers to my questions, I like using bulleted lists to keep things succinct and organized; however, to “tab-over”, or indent, takes an unnecessary amount of time as I have to select the bullet option in the app and then select the indent/tab-over button to move my bullet point instead of just being able to hit the tab button. Is it possible to allow for the tab key on the keyboard to indent? This way, we do not need to take our hands from the keyboard and can execute the indent function quickly and seamlessly. Having hundreds of flash cards made and many more to come, this small annoyance takes up minutes (if not eventually hours) of study time. A keyboard command to make a new flashcard would be great too.

Developer Response ,

Hi there, thanks for your feedback. Good point about the Tab key on external keyboards. I'll see if I can improve the support for Bluetooth keyboards. Should you run into anything else, please get in touch. I'm always open for feedback. Cheers, Rico.

Great App: Super effective way to study

I bought the app for my phone and computer. I love how simple and effective they are. Making sets of cards is very easy, organizing or moving cards between sets is easy, and best of all everything syncs between my phone and computer.

I do all the card setup and creation on the computer where it’s more convenient. It’s simple making quick edits on the phone if necessary. Then I can study on either platform and it keeps track of my progress. I feel like I’ve done much better with memorization since I started using this app.

Definitely recommended, worth the money!
