Study Effectively:
• Study smarter whenever you have a few minutes with 5 powerful study algorithms as we track your progress automatically
• Study faster in our distraction free app designed to get you directly to the task at hand
• Study easier using our simple but powerful functionality with the ability to carry around thousands of cards in your pocket

One of the most powerful and popular tools for studying has always been 2-sided index cards otherwise known as flash cards or note cards. Notecards is an application to help you study through the use of virtual flash cards. We let you study your way, while enhancing your experience with the power of the digital world.

While you are studying, Notecards tracks how well you do so you can easily find what cards you are worst and best at. We use those statistics to create 4 powerful and configurable study algorithms:
1. Review: Study all the cards at once
2. Divide and Conquer: Cards are divided into smaller groups. Once you have mastered a group, move on to the next group.
3. Start Small: Start out with a small number of cards. Once that group has been mastered, more cards are added to the group until you are studying all the cards.
4. Practice Worst: Practice all your worst cards until you master them.

You can also customize your study sessions with the following options:
• Study in a fixed or shuffled order
• Study front-to-back or back-to-front
• Have the cards spoken out to you
• Use timers to study without looking or force you to remember things more quickly

Notecards also contains the following features to make creating and organizing your content easier:
• Organize your content into as many folders and subfolders as you like. You can even choose to study all of the content in a parent folder at one time.
• Search across all of your content at once
• An interface optimized to create many cards at once
• Send your cards to another user
• Quickly resume studying content you recently studied, right from the apps home screen

It can be extremely valuable to create your own cards, however, sometimes it makes sense to save time by purchasing premium study content. For that, we have an ever growing catalog of content that goes well beyond what most users can or should create for themselves.

What’s New

Version 3.9.0

Updated for iOS 14, but more importantly, we're sad to say we've removed functionality that depends on ongoing costs for us:
- Sharing
- Content Store
We will be shutting down our servers soon as we can no longer justify running them so this functionality will break in existing versions. However, all of your existing content, including content you've purchased in the past, will continue to function as normal.

Amazing Study Tool!!

This app has helped me enormously with studying French! The app design is simple and easy to learn. Organization of cards is very easy with folders and decks. The search bar allows for quick access to filed cards. The best study tool in this app is the “card study tracker” as I like to call it... the app “tracks” your correct and incorrect cards and gives them scores based on how many times you have correctly chosen the answer or definition. When you have studied a deck a few times, you can go back and choose to study “your worst ones” based on the tracking. Or you could study in short bursts with the “quick study” option or classically study then all at once!
I would recommend this app to anyone who loved paper note cards and wants to try digital note cards!

Awesome app!

I am studying for the NCE, National Counseling Exam, and there is ALOT of material to study; 9 different areas in counseling. The study guide is 800 pages!! 👀 So, I bought notecards and decided to write out my material. Well, I got tired of that pretty quickly. I explored for a few days and found this app which has been a LIFESAVER! I can talk to text which is less time than writing the notecards out. I can create “decks” which helps organize the areas of study I need. Also, it’s on my phone so I don’t need to carry around notecards! I can study a few minutes while waiting. It’s easy and convenient.

Information Lost

So, all in all this app is great. I’m giving it two stars for one major reason. I was studying through some cards, tried to start over half way through, and when I went back through it just kept ending at that same point in the cards. It wouldn’t let me study the whole set.

So, after closing and clearing the app, and then shutting off my phone and restarting it, it continued to not let me study the entire set. It just got to that same card and asked me if I was finished studying or wanted to start over. I opted into each of them, but the app just wouldn’t let me get past that point.

Finally, out of options, I thought that perhaps if I deleted the app, it would stop asking me half way through if I was finished studying. Well, the good news is it didn’t ask me anymore. The bad news is that it not only deleted that set of cards, but all of my information.

Gone. It’s all gone. Hours of copying and pasting information is all gone. I have a premium account. This app should store all of my information. There are many other apps out there that store information.

Now, I have to spend five or more hours recreating what I was studying onto new notecards. This time I’ll make sure to create a Word doc first, but this is something the creators should fix. Even if they can’t store it in such cases as mine. They should integrate with Evernote or another service that can.
