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)
- 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)
- 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.

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!
This app is so much better than Quizlet
I have been using both FlashCard Hero, and more reluctantly: Quizlet, for years. I way more prefer FlashCard Hero. The creator is always methodically rolling out improvements, it is extremely stable, and using it is a joy.
There have been times where, because of science lab partners, I’ve had to use Quizlet to share decks with study groups, and it just does not even come close to this app.
There are clever things you can figure out, too, like how to use it as a spelling test for your child by just putting an image in the question field, and setting the app to read the answer word out loud, then your kid types it in via the type mode. I think you still need to use a desktop computer for that, though.
I look forward to the day type mode is added to the iOS versions.
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
