In the classroom, StudyDroid Flashcards 2.0 may be a way for teachers or students to create and share packs of flashcards to study for upcoming tests and prep for standardized tests or college entrance exams. Students with Facebook accounts and StudyDroid accounts can use the link on the StudyDroid website to access one another's packs.Continue reading Show less
StudyDroid Flashcards 2.0 is the companion app to the create-and-share flashcard website StudyDroid (www.StudyDroid.com). You can search the website (which contains ads) for flashcard packs -- created by other users -- on an almost endless supply of topics. Create flashcards yourself on the app or the website, add images if you want, and sync and review them; you'll just have to set up a username and password account on the website first. Note: All flashcard packs that users make default to public sharing, unless you activate the "private" setting. This means you can find flashcards on thousands of subjects -- not all appropriate for kids, and some that include titles with swearing or inappropriate language. Tap on the "+" to add a new pack on your mobile device or sync packs from the website. Give the pack a name, add new cards, or view the ones you have as a list. When studying, tap "known" for a card you've learned. Syncing is easy; simply enter username and password on your mobile device.Continue reading Show less
As kids study with the digital flashcards, any card they master can be labeled "known," and it moves to the back of the digital pack, letting them focus on cards they're still learning. A quiz feature is an option on the paid version of the app. (The 2.0 version of this app also links to other flashcard websites/apps, such as Quizlet.) Otherwise, it's your standard flashcard fare.
