How to create and share digital flash cards on your iPhone and iPad [App for that]

Our challenge this week was to find an app that would allow my parents, who are taking a Spanish class together, to create flashcards of vocabulary that could be shared on two iPhones and one iPad. With the Spring semester well on it's way and the first round of tests approaching, my parents surely are not the only our student readers that looking for ways to be better, more efficient studiers.

With over half a million apps for just about everything, you’d figure there’d have to be at least one in the App Store for this. But with so many apps, it can be hard to find the one you want. That’s where we come in. We’re sorting through the App Store and we’re going to help find just exactly the app for that.

App for that: gFlash+/gFlashPro - Flashcards & Tests

gFlashPro has turned out to be the perfect solution. First, you create a spreadsheet with Google Docs where one column is the vocabulary term, and a second column is the definition -- or in my parents's case, the English and Spanish versions of the words. Each row in your spreadsheet then gets transformed into a flash card after you connect gPlushPro to you Google account and download the spreadsheet. Since the flashcards are tied to Google, they are easily shared on multiple devices. If you wanted, you can even share the Google documents with your classmates, so that they, too, can download the flashcards for studying on the go.

There are two version of this apps: gFlash+ and gFlashPro. The former is free to purchase and supported by ads. gFlashPro is ad free and includes addition features like the ability to Delete, "forget", and move cards in the deck. You also get free access to more than 50 million cardsets from Quizlet and StudyStack.

  • There has got to be a better, non-google docs solution out there...
  • I use AnkiMobile. It's an SRS app. It doesn't use Google anything, syncs with the Anki desktop apps, and supports formatting of the card content. The iOS version is very expensive, but it is free on almost every desktop OS I've seen it on.
  • The standard for flashcards is . There are several apps that you can upload quizlet data into. You can probably already find the vocabulary for most Spanish books. Be careful to check spelling though.
    The app I use is flashcards.
