Master your Studies. On macOS, iPadOS and iOS.

Some things in life just have to be memorized. Words, facts, formulas, pictures, dates, procedures, even names and faces. Everything you do includes information that needs to reside in your head. Studies can help with that.

Studies is a flashcard app for the serious student. It's a tool to extend your knowledge, and it doesn't matter what you want to learn — a new language, medicine, law, history, driving, fine art, music — from simple day-to-day tidbits, to knowledge of life changing importance. Studies is an app to help you achieve your learning goals.

There are Studies apps for iPhone, iPad, and Mac (separate purchase), and they sync up beautifully via iCloud. Start studying in class with Studies for Mac, continue on the bus ride home with Studies for iPhone, and finish off on the sofa with Studies for iPad.

(Note: Studies was formerly called Mental Case.)

Nearly perfect

I’ve been using this app for several years—since back when it was still Mental Case—and I’ve been very happy with its flexibility, effectiveness, and the improvements made over the years. One feature request that I’d love to see implemented is the ability to sort stacks (and/or search results) automatically by a given field, like by the date a note is created or in alphabetical order. The default order (notes are in stack by the date created) is generally what I want, but I have some stacks with thousands of cards and often find myself swiping for ages to scroll to the end in order to see the most recent few notes. The ability to manually reorder stacks is nice, but with very large stacks it’s not practical, especially if I, say, want to toggle between alphabetical and date created. This is a minor shortcoming, however: I use this app nearly every day and highly recommend it to anyone who works in a field requiring commitment of large amounts of information to memory!

Highly recommend, but still needs improvement

I’m currently studying to be an electrical engineer. I was looking for a good flash card app that would allow me to create flash cards on any of my devices, as well as study on any of them without always having an internet connection. I use it on an iPhone 6s+, an iPad Pro, a MacBook Pro, and a Mac mini. What I like most about it is having my flash cards with me everywhere I am, whether that be sitting in a doctor’s office, studying at the library, or sitting at home at my desk. Believe me, my stack of notecards had gotten too large to carry around! I just purchased the writing tool for use on my iPad Pro and was a little disappointed in the response with the Apple Pencil. I decided to try a regular stylus instead and had even worse luck. My finger works great! Unfortunately, I don’t write or draw well with my finger, and I want to be able to get the flash cards for my high level math classes to look right. I have had this app for about a year now, and I can definitely say the developer is working to get things right. I recommend it to all my classmates who have Apple devices. I hope better Apple Pencil support is coming soon... With iOS 11, I think a lot more students are going to be using iPad Pros, and this could easily become the best app out there for this purpose!

First rate app

This app offers ease and flexibility that makes language learning pleasant, effective, and portable. The interface allows users to study each card slowly and thoroughly or allows users to review large amounts of information quickly. Users can easily set aside difficult words to study at a later time. The app efficiently and accurately imports hundreds of cards from an excel file in Dropbox. Overall, an A+.
