Make your own flash cards and take the pressure out of test preparation. Flashcard Hero keeps track of what
facts you already know so you can focus on what you don’t know and save a lot of time.

Beyond your average-vocab-app: We made Flashcard Hero for those of you who want to fit more than a few words on each card. You can add images, lists, and use text formatting to structure your content. Cards even expand as you add more text so you can take notes during class and turn them into study cards later. All decks can easily be shared with others via the web.


- iCloud Drive integration (compatible with the Flashcard Hero iPhone/iPad app)

- 3 study modes: Answer covered, Multiple choice tests, Typing the answer

- Audio output (text to speech) of text on cards in over 30 languages

- Group cards by topic (e.g. text book chapters)

- Add images from your Mac and the Internet

- Basic text formatting (lists, bold font, italic,…)

- Many deck cover styles

- Difficulty level for each card

- Group cards using the Leitner study system (similar to spaced repetition)

- Detailed study session summaries

- Take notes during class; cards expand automatically

- Import decks you already have (.tsv and .csv format, Quizlet.com)

- Share decks via the web

- Print decks

- Export as PDF and lecture notes


- Compatible with the Remote Control feature of the iOS app. You can use the iOS app as a remote to control the study mode on the Mac while you are projecting on a big screen.

A note about iCloud Drive:

Starting with version 2.0 of the Mac app, using iCloud Drive requires at least Mac OS X Yosemite and iOS 8.

This is probably the greatest app, ever. - ^ And that is an understatement. Honestly, I went through every demo of apps for flashcards that the app store provides. I began with Smartr until it crashed and didn’t become available in the US anymore. Contacted them and then NO reply. I was going to consider, Mental Case but it was kind of pricey for electronic flashcards. I started with the demo of Flashcard Hero and was really impressed by the simplicity. Considering I’m a college student, I barely have any time to learn the way an app works nowadays so it is a + when it’s extremely SIMPLE. I also contacted the main person of this app directly (you can find his e-mail on the flashcardhero.com website) and gave him some ideas that he could add to make the app a tiny bit better than it already is. I got a quick response within a few hours; this shows not only dedication, but persistence in wanting to make it perfect. I suggested an iPad app, and a search bar for when people are looking for one precise flashcard within their whole stack. I told all my friends about it and the two main girls I study with already purchased it to use for other classes. When studying with friends, it helps to have the flashcards in full screen and have each one of them assure that the other one knows it. I probably would have completely failed Theories of Personality exam without this app, so thanks! Everyone should try the app! There’s a demo if you’re a tad bit hesitant!

Version 2.0
Review by Catk2

Requires unnecessary OS upgrade - For an application that is relatively simple, requiring an OS X upgrade to v10.10 means older MacBooks must cannot use current features of the paid Mac version with their iOS 8 devices. Older MacBooks suffer in performance with the current OS versions, and don't gain any significant features. This is lazy engineering.

Version 2.4.2
Review by golten

Great, wish I found it earlier - reallly works quite well, I bought the Mac (OSX) and iOS versions and syncing works perfect it even syncs your progress learning and not just your flashcards. One very minor suggestion is that imo it repeates cards too soon regardless of whether you choose “repeat soon” or repeat later” (which I think is “Hard” and “not sure” on the iOS version), Again though it works awesome nice polished interface:). I highly recommend importing spreadsheets (CSV) if you want to make lots of cards quickly.

Version 2.4.2
Review by Chalati

Getting better with time! - As a medical student, I am all about efficiency and practicality. Initially I was somewhat disappointed with the application. It was not as intuitive as I hoped, but I kept toying around with it and find it quire useful. After several weeks, I am 100% satisfied with it. One of my initial frustrations with the product was from the autocorrect feature, but that can be disabled. Overall, I would recommend it to anyone and it beats keeping up with multiple decks of paper flash cards.

Review by KrisMuse

Works well, syncs well - This app does all I’d expect from a flash card app. You can insert images into the answers. In addition to studying the material as flash cards it can create multiple choice tests. You can import and export in several formats and from at least two websites. It syncs well with the iOS app for studying on the go.
