Flashcards: Learn for your exams alone or in multi-player mode
Flashcards is an iPhone application for mobile studying. It is suitable as a mobile and dynamic solution for studying independent from the location of the student. Usable like a physical flashcard, where you put the question and the answer each on one side, you do the same here with sets of virtual flashcards. Swipe-to-browse and the direct editing capabilities make it feel natural for the user to use the application. It tracks your learning progress by storing the rating you give yourself for answering a question. Also included is a 2-person mode in which one person can decide, which question the other one has to answer. This helps with complex questions and brings some fun into the learning process.
