Touchcards

Choose from among hundreds of thousands of flashcards or make your own.

Touchcards supports loading cards from Quizlet and StudyStack, two of the most popular flash card sharing sites on the web. Thousands of great free sets are already available, and you can always create your own. You get the benefits of the hard work you or other people have put into creating sets on
Quizlet and StudyStack, but also have the freedom to study the cards on your own.

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, with one column for questions (the front of a card) and one column for answers (the flipside of a card). Publish your spreadsheet as a web page and tell Touchcards where to find the set.

Thousands of free flash cards are already available, covering topics in math, Spanish, French, English, music, anatomy, the GRE, MCAT, SAT, LSAT, weather, body parts, history, algebra, geometry, chemistry, accounting, and many more.

Flashcards can be an integral part of learning new material. Increase retention and build a mental model around the material. In short, you’ll do better on tests.

Performs as promised. No more, no less. – ialsohatemacs

It’s a rare time when the app you download does what you want without the confusion – BcHaos

this is the best free flashcard app for the simple reasons that it works seamlessly with Google Docs!! – dankauffman

I like this app because I can import my studystack and quizlet flash cards – I was worried I would have to type them into another app, but accessing my flashcards was easy – medstu_1

Note

Touchcards isn’t affiliated with Quizlet, StudyStack, or Google Docs. It’s a tool to review flashcard sets.

Requirements

iPhone or iPod Touch running OS 2.2.1 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.

Google Docs works fine but can be a little more tricky. It’s easiest to look at this image tutorial if you need help.
