Editors' Review

There's a reason that flashcards have remained such a popular educational tool: they work. L.A. Flash Cards is an easy-to-use program that takes all of the useful simplicity of physical flashcards and adds helpful features like audio to make your flashcards extra effective. Whether you're learning a foreign language or trying to memorize a set of words or facts for another purpose, L.A. Flash Cards can do things a set of handwritten index cards never could.

The program's interface isn't the most intuitive thing we've ever seen, but it didn't take us too long to get the hang of it. In the card creator interface, collections of cards are displayed with the question on the left and the answer on the right; on either side of the card you can edit the card color and font, insert images, and add audio. We especially liked how easy it was to add audio to a card; just click the record button, speak, and click it again. We quickly created a set of English/Spanish flashcards, saved it, and then opened the program's flashcard presenter to try it out. There are quite a few options here; you can have the cards play automatically or advance them manually, and there's a simple test mode, Leitner system mode, and an option that lets you type a response. If you don't want to use the program's built-in presenter, you can also print your flashcards or even upload them to a server for use on your mobile device. Although the program has a menu option for a Help file, we weren't able to access it; fortunately the program is straightforward enough that this isn't a huge drawback. Overall, we were quite impressed with L.A. Flash Cards, and we think it's a great choice for learners of all ages and levels.
