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.

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, which is a separate purchase)

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).

Note: This app is a single, one-time purchase. No subscriptions, no in-app purchases, no ads. The App Store might list the app as having in-app purchases, but those are only for backwards compatibility with an earlier version of the app. With this download, you get all features right away.

The best Flashcard app out there!

This will be the first review I have ever written, mainly because I am beyond satisfied with this product.

I have had FlashCard Hero since my freshman year of college almost a decade ago and it has only gotten better. I stick with it because at the time, even the name brand flash card apps did not have the functionality Flash Card Hero had, such as attaching a document or—the best part—generating multiple choice questions.

As I now study for a big test, Flash Card Hero is my go-to and always has been a life saver. Taking screenshots of concepts then adapting them into questions has been saving me mountains of time. The best part? It syncs across all my devices. I truly do love this app. At first, I was using it to teach myself new vocabulary I would come across but now this app is crucial to my future success. The crazy thing is I believe it’s a single person developing this app. I could be wrong but that makes me appreciate it more. This single person has helped more people than they can imagine. Thank you for your contribution to our lives.

What I would recommend is DARK MODE flash cards. I would very much appreciate that feature because I tend to study into the night and the white cards don’t help the eyes that late into the night. This would be a much appreciated feature. For anyone looking for a great flash card app, you’ve found your winner!

Awesome transition from Duolingo TinyCards

I recently switched to Flashcard Hero after hearing from Duolingo that they are shutting down their TinyCards service. My main goal was to find a new flashcard app that had a nice user experience on both iOS and OS X and was able to speak the flashcards in multiple languages (including spanish). After downloading the app on my phone and laptop, I had a hard time importing my Duolingo cards because Duolingo didn't export the data in a logical format within their CSV export. I emailed FlashCard Hero to see if they could help me avoid manually rebuilding 900 flash cards. Rico emailed back quickly saying he was building a script for me so he could convert tinycard's export format into Flashcard Hero decks. A day or two later I got an email with my data, converted perfectly into Flashcard Hero decks that required no manual entry from me. Thank you Flashcard Hero for the awesome transition and apps!

Great App, suggestions for extra features that love to have

This is a great app and I love using it everyday. I add my Flashcards on my Mac and have them synced over iCloud to study them on my phone. I have over different stack of cards, each for a topic, and each is organized as folders and sub folders so I can find any card quickly if I need to. There are two features that I REALLY REALLY wished the app had. One is that it would allow you to study multiple stack of cards together. I have 10 different topics and have to go through them one by one. The second is a web interface so u could use it on any computer I see. I ask this because I do use a third non Mac computer for coding and would like to be able to add cards while having them easily synced over iCloud.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for your feedback and your kind words. I added your suggestion to my to do list. Currently the workaround for studying multiple decks at once would be to combine them into a single decks as separate topics. You can still study those separately or all at once. For syncing with Windows devices, iCloud Drive is available for Windows so that you can sync cards across iPhone/iPad/Mac and Windows (search for "iCloud Windows" to find the official download link from Apple). If you'd like more details here, feel free to get in touch by email. Cheers, Rico
