    With the ability to make flash cards covering any topic, Flash Cards for Mac would be useful for users who want to improve their memory and knowledge. Available for free, the application downloads and installs quickly.

    The design of the main menu is basic, with no graphics to distinguish buttons or functions. The text labels were accurate, but a better interface would have helped new users navigate Flash Cards for Mac more effectively. By clicking on the Setup button the user can choose between two modes: Text and Picture. Here the user can also set the period between displays as well as text color and font size. "Start" and "Pause" buttons allow for navigation of a previously created set of cards. This can also be automated from a menu selection. Setting up a slideshow is poorly described, but is accomplished by dragging photo files into a designated folder on the user's computer. The answers are modified by a drop-down menu, which is clearly labeled. These can be scrambled and sorted from the main menu to change up the card sequence, making memorization easier. The user can choose between two modes: Automatic and Manual. In both modes a word appears and stays on the screen for the designated time. There is no field to enter an answer but the user can check if it's right or wrong by clicking on the "Show Answer" button. If the answer was wrong, the user needs to click on the "Incorrect" button. By checking the option "Keep Score," the user can track how many correct and incorrect answers they had.

    Flash Cards for Mac seems suitable for any user looking to improve their level of knowledge of a specific subject. Even though useful, the program could benefit from a better and clearer interface.
