    "Simple to use, but with advanced memorization features!"

    January 09, 2011   |   By Tokyo-Paul

    Version: iFlash 2.8.1

    Pros

    After evaluating a number of flash-card products, I chose iFlash, and have been using it for a while to teach my sons Japanese. It's working very well. I wish I had had something like this when I was in school!

    Cons

    Not yet available in the Mac App Store. Hopefully soon...

    Summary

    This is the best flash card memorization application I've found for the Mac.

    Summary

    "This is an AMAZING and simple flash card program!!!"

    November 21, 2006   |   By Erika Varga

    Version: iFlash 2.6

    Pros

    It has an extremely simple and intuitive layout. It follows the basic Mac layout. It's laid out very similar to Mac's Mail program, which I like. I also love how when in "Study" mode, you're able to make the whole background go black. This really helps minimize desktop distractions.

    Cons

    I wish this program was free!!

    A full-featured flash card app at the pinnacle of Mac-like-ness. The interval studying option is very handy.

    "Best Out There"

    March 04, 2006   |   By VersionTrackerUserOpinion

    Version: iFlash 2.7.2

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    My name is Konrad and a long time ago I developed a Macintosh flashcard program called Flashcard Wizard. I included a feature that I believe all high quality flashcard programs should have: interval study.

    Though the program was not bad in its day, I never updated it for OS X and have discontinued development. Since then, I think the two best flashcard solutions currently available for the Macintosh are Studycard Studio and iFlash. Both of them implement a form of interval study, which keeps track of your performance and only prompts you to review those words that you should be getting close to forgetting. Both devleopers have been very responsive to emails and suggestions for improvements and features.

    Now, after a year or so, I now really must say that iFlash has to be my favorite. While Studycard continues to be a very solid application with unique features and strengths of its own, iFlash is now by far the easier to use, fully featured, and extremely stable. Here is what I like particularly:
    1) solid implementation of interval study
    2) extremely simple to use interface with a list view, pop up windows for editing individual cards
    3) strong support for unicode so that means I can review all Asian languages in the program (but it is UTF-16 rather than UTF-8 which I would have preferred)
    4) very "mac like" feel to the whole program
    5) wonderful "deck library" where you can upload, share, and download flashcard files - built into the application
    6) multiple ways of studying - my favorite is interval study which I believe is most useful in the long run but Davey gives you the option of choosing yourself.
    7) lots of preferences and options for tailoring it to your needs but not in such a way that confuses or clutters the screen (which I completely failed to do in my own effort at designing a flashcard program)
    8) full export and import features - with customizable import so that I could take all my old flashcard files from other apps (including my own) and plug them straight into iFlash

    Areas for improvement in future versions:
    1) some better documentation
    2) smoother "review until all are correct" kind of feature during interval study

    This is well worth the price but gives you full unrestricted use for 2 weeks to check it out...try downloading some of the great decks out there to test it...

    Davey is a young programmer and I think we should all support his future development of this program!

    "Good product"

    December 06, 2005   |   By smolka

    Version: iFlash 2.6.4

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    iFlash is a reliable product, which is actively supported, and it has a good set of features. It is very easy to set up a deck of cards, and the software works like advertised. I have not made use of the audio possibilities myself, but it is good to know that iFlash supports that.

    What I would like to request, to stimulate my appetite in learning vocab, is some graphs of recent study session scores. For Hebrew, FoundationStone (freeware!) has a brilliant set of graphs, which iFlash (which supports more languages, but has less features) does not.

    Overall, highly recommended.

    "Brilliant alternative to paper flash cards!"

    October 26, 2005   |   By sushi dc

    Version: iFlash 2.6.3

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I'm currently using iFlash to learn a foreign language. I've found it quite easy to setup and use daily. Its ability to keep track of what you have memorized and how well you know a card via scoring is very well implemented. My foreign language has it's own character set, and with iFlash I can have 3 (or more) sided cards to accomodate English, Phonetic and Foreign language. This is a very well done app, incredible interface too. I enjoy using iFlash so much that I forget I'm studying and I find that I'm learning at a faster pace now.

    "Best one I tried"

    August 03, 2005   |   By macfancier

    Version: iFlash 2.5.5

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I downloaded several from Version Tracker to help with my basic German studies, and this one outshone all the others. The interface is intuitive and sleek like OSX, it offers versatility in the way the cards are shown to you and how they are marked "known," and offers a "card deck" exchange option on the website to share or download other people's cards.
