Have an iPad? Try Cardboard for iPad.

Touchcards 2 makes it easy to learn all kinds of things. You can import flashcards from popular sites like Quizlet and StudyStack. Lots of great decks are waiting for you, or you can make your own.

Pick from a variety of proven review methods, including the Leitner system and a matching game. Challenge yourself or your friends to beat your high score.

You can optionally provide an answer to each card when you flip it. Touchcards uses this information to present comprehension statistics and optimize the review set. You can also tell Touchcards to start out by showing you the back of each flash card.

Earn Achievement points by using different parts of the app. You can unlock features when you have enough points.

If you need to create your own flash cards and don’t want to use Quizlet or StudyStack, you can create a simple spreadsheet in Google Docs. See an example if you need help.

Reviews

THE flash card app! I am really impressed with this app. – Grafted in! Praise Adonai!

This app has helped me In my Spanish class immensely, the tools for reviewing words that you are having the most trouble with are immensely helpful. And it imports from quizlet! Best $2 ever spent – Delenai

I started with the free version and it worked well so I went with the paid version. I have downloaded both from Quizlet and StudyStack without any problem. The ability to change font size is great. – abq-sv

Note

Touchcards isn’t affiliated with Quizlet, StudyStack, or Google Docs.

Requirements

iPhone or iPod Touch running OS 3.0 or later.

Instructions

The easiest sets to import are the public ones you can find on Quizlet and StudyStack. As a shortcut, just copy/paste the deck’s unique numeric identifier into Touchcards to import. You can create a simple spreadsheet in Google Docs with one column for the front of the cards and another for the back. See the tutorial link above.

Why two versions?

Touchcards 2 is a complete rewrite and has many of the features users asked about. It wraps a better experience around the original. At the same time, many others wanted to keep Touchcards simple. It’s great at what it does and has helped thousands study better, and it runs on older devices. Pick what fits, and thank you for your support.
