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!

The Superior Flashcard App

That’s right Quizlet, eat your heart out. As a graduate student studying physical therapy, I have tried every Flashcard application in an attempt to optimize my studying. Flashcard Hero has consistently come out on top. With their most recent update, I can use the “tab” and arrow keys on my keyboard when using my iPad. This has made making cards significantly faster. It should be noted, Quizlet does NOT support such features. I can also seamlessly import photos into my cards for no extra charge (again, I’m looking at you, Quizlet). This application is helping me pass my graduate classes and I could not be more pleased with the improvements they’ve made over the last year. Keep it up, Flashcard Hero!

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.

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 desktop 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.
