  • Great learning tool

    By Mattimclellan11
    I need Spanish for my job, and this app keeps me refreshed and the Spanish course is thorough enough that I also am learning many new words and phrases. I also use creole for mission work. While the current French Creole course is great and helpful, I do wish a full course of Haitian Creole would be available in the future to help with verb tenses and conjugations.
  • Perfect

  • Excellent App & Company

    By SKC
    I’ve been using Brainscape since 2013. It’s a great app to increase memorization and learning. Their flashcard algorithm maximizes fast and easy memorization. They also have a wide range of card collections: Latin, GRE vocabulary, Geography, Music Theory (including Ear Trainers!), Spanish, French and many more. It’s a great way to learn basic vocabulary for a language. Also to study for exams such as the MCAT and CPA. They are also an excellent company with good practices. I recently had an issue with them and it was resolved quickly and easily with excellent communication. Highly recommended.
  • Good but not the best

    By Pankajshukla
    I upgraded but disheartened when came to know that I cannot add image from my iPhone. It should also allow multi choices and other options like tagging when a card is related to multiple subjects. Also, it should allow me to add any card in between instead of adding at the last.

  • Meh. You get almost nothing but pay a lot

    Where's the beef? Not here.
  • So far so good

    By YuriyVL
    Simple to use and effective. Free features are good enough to get started.
  • Nice app...if you are willing to pay

    By Chelsea.H.M.
    The app seems to be well made however it wants you to pay in order to access the shuffle feature. I wouldn't mind paying a one time fee for that option however they want to charge my card, monthly. I think that's ridiculous. Really defeats the purpose of using flash cards. Not worth paying for premium when that's literally the only feature I want/need. These people are scam artists.
