Hi there! I’m Tes. I develop websites and apps for iOS.
My big hobby is learning languages (currently Russian), and when I arrive at that learning stage where you have to memorize a bunch of new words I like to use an SRS for that. And it’s of course handy when it’s an app on my phone, so I can study a bit at a time when in the metro, bus, etc.
About this site
Well.. I had this spreadsheet. After researching the market for my flash card app (Vocab Ninja) I had a ginormous spreadsheet with ALL the details on ALL the similar apps on the App Store. It took half a minute just to open that beast.
And then I figured the gathered information might be useful for other users. So here you go. Here’s all the info. I hope you find it useful.
On this website you can find all the flash card apps that:
- can contain at least a few different stacks (languages, subjects) and let you select which stack you want to study at a given time
- let you make or import your own stacks. Apps that come with a fixed stack, like for 1 specific language, are excluded. There are just too many of those.
- let you study in a ‘show question, then answer’ manner, because that’s how the old skool paper cards work, but also because active recall is a very efficient way to study. Although some apps may contain extra study methods like: multiple choice, fill-the-gap, typing out an answer, etc.
- are in active development: The app should have been released or updated in the last 2 years.
If you know of an app that’s missing, have questions, remarks, tips,.. please let me know.
I also check the Education category of the App Store for new apps every 2 weeks, and I’ll try an already included app again after an update that adds functionality.
