    I like this because it makes it soooo much easier to study for tests at school. I don’t like studying but this isn’t hard. I also like how they have you rate how well you think you know a card. I definitely will be using for a long time!
  • Really good

    *edit 2* App is great but lowering this a star because of price. I am wealthy so the cost is no problem to me. I have literally recommended this highly to maybe 20+ people either in school or studying languages. 1 person tried it. The rest just look and think a flash card app is too expensive. $10 for a high school kid or a college kid who primarily will use this is a lot. I paid for the $79 to own without thinking about it. The one person I did talk into buying this is also wealthy with kids so bought a few licenses. He also jokingly mentioned that he had trouble getting people to buy this. I’m in sales so I understand there are some smart guys behind this that want to make money. The problem is they probably could have had 10x more money if they had offered this at a price that is tailored to the crowd using this. Personally feel the price is worth it but trying to get kids to see this is a losing battle. For now this is tailored to rich kids going to MIT or Harvard or wealthy business people like me who need this or who have kids. I travel internationally and meet literally hundreds of people who could benefit from this. Sadly the millions of people who would pay $1 or $2 for this cannot benefit. Imagine a world where every teacher is recommending thus to kids for specific classes. My best friend is a teacher in nyc public schools and laughed at that idea with the current cost I do not leave many reviews but I thought this deserved one. I am using Brainscape to learn Spanish l. I also downloaded and paid for 4 other apps including babbel, fluentU, Duolingo etc. I used Brainscape for 2 days and then switched over and used babbel a few days as well as the others. I found that the speed of my learning/ memorization ability was 10x that of something like babbel. Babbel is so so slow with all the games and repeating and filling in blanks. After 2 days and maybe 8 hours I had barely learned anything. FluentU was great for building a spanish ear but it is also hard to learn new content watching children’s shows. After playing with all of the various learn Spanish apps for 2 weeks and at least 5 hours a day I quickly discovered that Brainscape vs babbel learning can be compared to driving a fararri vs a ford pickup truck. Brainscape is easy, fast and efficient. I wish it had a few things such as the ability to swipe back to a previous card or better cut/paste ability if I want to look up or save words but I can’t really complain much. I kept fluentU for a while as it is valuable to train your Spanish ear. *Edit* One addition to my comments with the Spanish cards is an annoyance that I think slows my learning process in Brainscape. They sometimes shove 2,3,or 4 ways of saying things into one card. Sometimes some of these could be moved off into separate cards. Some make sense to have together. It really slows down my learning process because I have to keep coming back to a card much much longer to remember there are 3 ways to say something. It would help if they said in the card there are 3 ways of saying X. I’ve had to skip a few cards out of frustration because it was slowing me way down or I’m just angry because there are too many concepts on a card. I think after 100 hours studying, this probably waisted many hours.

  • Mixed

    The app is somewhere between a great one and a scam. You do not know upfront that you’re just paying for an opportunity to pay more. I understand the need to have a functioning business model, but there is not enough warning of the limits of the app when you first get it. BTW, the issues with the app were doubly disappointing because the company has an introductory Spanish app that is very good
  • forgot to make app better than others

    By vfjingdrcbji
    if you make anniphone app, it should take 30 seconds max to hightlight, copy and paste text from any browser ito a flashcard. like every other fc app out there, this dev is clueless. making a new app no simpler or faster than every competitor out there is a waste of user’s time. you have to go back and forth instead of just forward. ux design is supposed ti solve probkems, not copy competitor’s dumb mistakes.

    I just wished this worked. It's an app and a website that is great! The only thing is, is that when I did two hours worth of work of entering in stuff it lost it.
