StudyDroid Flashcards – Eliminate Outdated Paper Flashcards.
For those students who are fond of flash cards, and have an android phone. Check out the app StudyDroid. I downloaded it the other day, and have been very pleased with it. It eliminates the need for carrying around the paper version of flash cards, and you will have it at your finger tips online or on your phone.
You can create the flash cards either on your computer or straight on your phone. By syncing it to an account on studydroid.com you can make the cards right on the computer, including adding pictures to the cards, and it will sync to your phone.
Once the cards are on your phone, simply click on that pack in the main menu and begin going through, the navigation is simple. Tap the card in order to flip it over, swipe left or right to move through the cards. Once you learn a card, place it at the back of the pile permanently. The main menu displays the % of the cards that you have marked as “learned” so that you know how close you are to mastering that deck of cards.
Positives: Simple easy to use format, ability to use pictures, syncing capabilities with your phone, ability to share your flash cards with friends via facebook. Function to mark cards as “learned” so they are put to the end of the deck.
Cons: The online entry form can sometimes be a little finicky, no fancy animations (which doesn’t bother me, but might bother others), occasionally the swiping motion is not registered and you must swipe a few times.
