App Reviews

  • Awesome

    By Molhobics
    It's a good app for who wants to memorize words, specially for me that study Japanese.
  • Great way to Memorize. Buggy app.

    By afeedback
    This app has great potential. It allows me to go over words that i don’t know over and over again until it becomes solidified in my head. I almost considered buying the premium version of the app. However, as much as Brainscape is a great app for its flash cards, it is extremely buggy. First, it relies heavily on its internet connection. If you try to study these flash cards while in the middle of a commute and the mobile network becomes spotty it crashes when you finish. If you want to double check a meaning on a card and you quickly switch apps and come back, the app freezes. It somehow saves progress which I assume is due to its constant connection to the internet, but my inability to switch between apps while memorizing is hindering to my learning process. I even tried to find a way to contact someone from Brainscape to talk about these things, but for some reason it says that there’s no email attached to the app even though when I go to my account my email info is in there. There was even a Brainscape representative that emailed me to promote the premium version so they do have my contact info so why doesn’t the app reflect that. I love the way the app works and would like to use it for a longer period of time, but if these problems persist it’ll become hard for me to do so.
  • Excellent study tool. Use it all the time

    If bought this when I started studying Chinese. The combination of creating my own flash cards from my textbook and downloading other people’s Chinese study flash cards has made my studies fly! Thanks for a great tool.
  • Too expensive

    By robodog girl
    I find it hard to believe that I would have to pay so much money for something as needed as resetting my "confidences" if I'm trying to study a second time. It really frustrates me that I'm stuck with this app because I do not want to have to recreate my many decks of flashcards on a new app.
  • Learning on the go

    By Dannare
    Easy to use. Easy to find relevant topics. Digital flashcards are a great way to take learning on the go with you.
  • Great app

    By Jdhdjdhdh
    I downloaded several flashcards apps to see which one had the best diversity of study options, and though it costs to acquire the options I wanted it seems worth it to me. Like- being able to reverse or shuffle the deck, having deck categories and being able to study them together or alone. Most free apps just don't make the cut for what I need to really study effectively. I was looking for an app that was ideal for making my own flashcards, and not only did I like this one the best for flashcard creating, but it also actually has a pretty wide variety of already made decks that can be download and studied that I like to utilize for the fun of it sometimes. The one thing I really really wish was available was being able to put a gif, an animated photo, or even a video on a flashcard. I haven't yet found a flashcard app that has this option available but it would be so helpful! I am studying sign-language and an animated photo or video option would be perfect. Brainscape would be the ultimate flashcard app if they added a feature like that!
  • Great features, too expensive

    By JFellows
    Brainscape had all the features I need, but like many apps these days, the developers push for subscription pricing. The lowest option is $2.99/mo. That's around $35/yr making it a very expensive app over time. I just want a reasonable flashcard app for a reasonable one-time price. Using Brainscape is like renting a Lexus just to drive a block to the grocery store. Too many bells and whistles make this app too pricey for my needs.
  • Pro doesn’t work

    By TXpodcast fan
    So far pro subscription hasn’t registered with the app... will update if that changes.
  • Thanks.

    By cnblue1999
    Glad I can make flash cards.
  • Definitely a great app

    By Tron🤘🏾
    It's entirely way more convenient having flash cards on your phone. I work 2 jobs and still go to school while still trying to do activities on the side and this app really, really helps man. Able to study at work and anywhere else without carrying a bulk of flash cards.
