This application utilizes the extensive educational resources offered by Quizlet to provide users with eight different educational aides, exercises, and games. The app's vast collection of swipe-through flashcards don't simply offer up information. Instead, they challenge users to test their own comprehension. Each card offers users interactive questions that mentally engage them and encourage their development within their chosen foreign language. Should users get stumped by a card, they simply click on it and a thorough explanation of its given topic or word will be revealed immediately. The app includes a varied list of game-themed learning activities as well, with eight in all. These "Touch & Drag" games use a fun mix of imagery and wordplay, challenging students to learn and understand foreign words while giving them an entertaining mobile experience as well.
FlashCards by TouchLanguage also offers multiple choice Knowledge Quizzes which are specially designed to test their understanding of words they have reviewed through the app. Just like any other mobile gaming app, a points system tracks the player's performance games too, rewarding them for good play and motivating them to learn. Though the app has an educational focus - and no shortage of educational tools on hand for users - its emphasis on vibrant graphics and dynamic touch-based interaction help it become a pleasurable experience rather than a dry educational one. Indeed, this attention to the user experience shines through, positioning FlashCards as one of the premiere language and vocabulary expanding education apps available for iOS.
