"This app is very convenient for getting some quick studying in when walking from class to class or waiting at a bus stop etc. I highly recommend it especially for college students."

"I like being able to study two ways: playing the matching game as well as drilling with the flashcards."

Don't like our flash cards? Then make your own.

Simple Flash Card Maker lets you easily make your own flash cards. Either right there on your iOS device, or make them even more quickly on your computer (mac or pc) and import them using iTunes.

You can even download them ready made from the millions of sets available on Or make your own flashcards on (using your mac or pc) and share them. ( is a free website).

Or you download our ready made decks from within the app (for FREE). We currently have decks for Japanese, Chinese and the SAT.

Each card can have combinations of text, images, sound or video.

The text can be in any language that you can enter using your keyboard.
Images and Video can come direct from your camera, from your albums or from your mac/pc.
Sound can be recorded live, from your music, or imported from your mac/pc using iTunes.

Cards within your deck can be marked to be included (or not) when you are doing drills.
This lets you learn the cards 10 at a time. Easily add 10 more when you master those. And after you have learned those 10, easily drill yourself on the whole deck so far. 10 at a time is a great way to learn even a very large deck.

Easily drill just the last 10 cards at the tap of a button.

During a drill you can see either the front, the back or both. Or you can rotate to landscape and see "Just the Card", one side of the card filling the entire screen.

You can also do a multichoice drill and choose from one of four answers.

If you get a card right it is removed from that drill (not the deck). If you get it wrong it's shuffled back in and it will come back again later. Keep going until you get them all right.

You can also play a simple memory game (face up or face down) to test your knowledge of the cards by finding pairs of matching cards.

Simple Flash Card Maker is great for elementary maths and for learning to read.
It is indispensable for language study, and for learning vocabulary.
Use it to memorise your favorite Bible verses.
Or cram key facts for upcoming examinations.

Video takes it to a whole new level beyond old fashioned paper flash cards.
Kids can learn from short videos instead of just static text or images.
They can record their own voices for names of animals.

Video is also great for learning things like sign language where complicated diagrams usually just make it harder to get started.

Regular practise and review is the only way to memorise anything using flash cards.
You always have your phone with you, so use those spare moments throughout the day to review your deck and you will be amazed at how quickly your knowledge grows.

What’s New

Version 4.0

Added AirDrop to make it much easier to transfer decks to and from your Mac.

Added Update, so if you import the same file again, it will automatically update the existing deck instead of making another one.
This will preserve your settings for which cards are included or not.

Added a unique identifier to each card.
So now if you export the deck the identifier will be included.
This makes things more consistent when matching cards during Update.
If you update from a text file without identifiers, the matching should still be correct as long as the front of each card is unique.

We added the idea of packs within a deck.
You can now easily include whole packs within a deck.
In a text file you can delineate the packs with a line which has only ~~

Once a card is ignored it will still be included in drills every now and then to make sure you still know it.
This is a huge help in retention and revision.
If you still know it when it is reintroduced, it will be much less likely to be reintroduced again later.
If you have forgotten it, it will be introduced more frequently until you know it again.
If you view the list of cards of a deck you will see that the ones you have ignored now have green backgrounds in that list.
The intensity of that green shows how well you know it. It will get deeper every time it is reintroduced and you get it correct.

Works for us

We really appreciate the ability to use this program like regular index cards but also have video and sound. My son is studying sign language and this is the only program we know that allows us to type or say a word he is studying and then have the answer demonstrated in a video. My kids prefer to use this app to study than regular cards and we don't lose these. The program is not super intuitive. It took a little longer to figure out. The graphics are mediocre. But it has been a huge help in our schoolwork from vocabulary to spelling to sign language to math and more. Thank you!
