iPhone Flashcard Apps

Published on Sunday, May 24, 2009 in , , ,

TouchcardsA little less than a year ago, my quest to see flashcard development on the iPhone was sated for the first time, when I found iFlipr. The idea is already starting to spread, and now you have a wider choice of iPhone flashcard programs!

While there are many responses in the iPhone App Store when you search for Flashcards, most of them are dedicated to a pre-set topic, such as beginning Spanish or medical terminology. For this list, I'm going to focus on customizable flashcard programs. This also is not intended as a review of each program, but rather an overview of what's available and what features are offered.

Many of these programs use a version of Leitner System, so that you can learn more efficiently by studying more difficult material more frequently.

Here's what I've found so far, in alphabetical order by App name:
