A review by AppVee (2 min): www.youtube.com/watch?v=AJdapPtNKpM
(the interface changed a bit since, but the app mostly works the same)

Note: The developer recommends to keep stacks small, like 100 cards. Probably also because it might be hard for you to edit a bigger stack on the website (all cards are shown in the same page).

"the usefulness of this app can't be overstated. i can carry all of my flashcards on my iphone. not to mention that, but there is a growing user community where you can share cards with others. i highly recommend this app!"

Greatest App Ever!
"This app is awesome. Hands down. It's a create your own flashcards app, so there isn't too much to do beyond that. However, what you do with these flashcards is the best part. Watch the initial video, and off you go into making cards for ALL your classes without wasting any paper!"

Excellent in its simplicity!
"What else is there to say. It works and extremely well."

Great for any student
"I just got this app, and was able to create and use a deck for history vocabulary in no time, all on my iphone.
Its a super tool for anyone who likes to study on-the-go."

Best app I have!!!
"I have purchased many apps... to the point that I need to get control of myself... but I'm so glad I purchased this one. I have tried all the 'flash card' apps... and this one blows the others away. I love the fact that I can create a spreadsheet with questions and answers... and then simply copy and paste them into the create section on iflipr.com. This is awesome. I use it for my kids in school... and to memorize things form my business.

Thank you so much! well worth the price."
