What can Flashcards do for you?
Decks can be exported and saved in any place on your hard disk. In addition to that Flashcards allows you to share a deck with your friends via email with just a few clicks. Collaboration makes fun.
A wonderful way to study:
Select the deck and press "Study". It is that easy. Flashcards will show you the cards one by one. You can type in your answer and Flashcards will automatically detect whether your answer is right or wrong.
Smart decks allow you to specify a set of rules that determine which cards the deck will contain. For example, you could have a smart deck that always contains cards you recently studied and answered wrong.
Flashcards comes with a formula editor. The formula editor lets you create graphical formulas by typing in a LaTeX style text. For example, you can then drop the formula on any card. That's the best way to learn formulas of nearly any complexity.
Exporting to iPhoto:
Do you own an iPod or an iPhone? Great! Flashcards lets you export decks as a series of images directly to iPhoto with just a few clicks. You can then use iTunes to sync them onto your iPod or iPhone and study on the go.
* Mac OS X 10.6 or later
* 1.9 MB
Pricing and Availability:
For a limited time, Flashcards 3.4 is $9.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide through the Mac App Store in the Education category.
