Flashcards are the ideal learning tool, especially when the student creates the cards himself -- something about the act of writing out the prompt and the answer sets the learning in motion. The Flashcards Study Helper iPhone app explodes the concept.
Other flashcard apps found in the iTunes App Store either offer a pre-selected set of cards or, if they allow the user to create their own, that must happen via the iPhone itself. Flashcards Study Helper lets the user create the flashcards both in the iPhone and via a Web interface that allows a user to download the flashcards to the phone.
Other advantages to the Web interface are the abilities to add images to flashcards and share cards with others.
Flashcards Study Pro allows for easy categorization via keyword, so that cards specific to different subjects can be easily found. Four different test modes allow for skimming of cards or repeating cards the user got wrong. A test mode runs through each card once and tracks how well the user knows his stuff.
As we move further into the digital age, it’s only natural that old tried-and-true methods of learning change. Flashcards, it seems, aren’t going anywhere, and rightly so. Flashcards Study Helper actually improves on the flashcard method and allows for easier customization and organization.
