But to make the story short: I failed. 2.99 € was too much. To be honest, I was deeply disappointed. The mentioned amount of money is nearly nothing in comparison to the iPhone itself or even in comparison to one single cup of coffee during the lecture breaks.

To avoid any misunderstanding: the App is far from being too expensive.It's rather too cheap!!

Sad state of affairs when we can buy our kids iPhones (or give them our hand-me-downs so we can buy ourselves the newest version!) but won’t pony up for an educational app. On the flip-side; could it be a communications thing? Kids want apps all the time and many parents disable their childrens’ ability to buy them because they get out of control. Maybe it’s not that the parents won’t support educational enhancements, but it’s the fact that the kids went home and said “I’ve got to buy an app for school...” and they didn’t quite believe their children?

Anywho - I use this app (initially) for rote memorization of testable topics. Hopefully I’ll also leverage it for more fun and interesting stuff (languages) later on.

I'm utilizing FCD to learn French, Spanish and Dutch. I've been fixated on learning dialects for quite a long time and still can't seem to arrive at an abnormal state of familiarity with these dialects and am presently more decided than any other time in recent memory. In my assurance, I'm utilizing all better than ever not too bad strategies to help my advancement. In this manner, FCD has turned into my new closest companion.

I use FCF for language learning and it's very helpful so far. My English is good enough now so I just started to learn Chinese. Thank you so much for the very useful app 😊

To study languages - English at the moment, whenever I come across a term I don't know, I'll add it to the deck.
Have used it in the past for other languages (greek, hebrew but also html, css, java script :D )
For spoken Languages I like the TTS option, so you can read and listen. I've also used spelling and multiple choice options in the past.
Thanks for this great app. 8-)

Hi Katya I remember reading how you use this app to learn or improve square dancing and thinking that seemed like a really unusual application for flash cards. I only use it for foreign languages so far. I’ve learned Japanese to a B2 level (JLPT N2) successfully with the app. I occasionally use it to cram other information but Japanese and the Kanji were the big achievement that I’m proud of thanks to this app. About a year ago I started learning Korean. I’m using the app extensively for that and as before I keep experimenting with my flash cards trying to improve them. It’s pretty amazing that I’ve been using this app for over ten years and the developer has consistently supported it. Most of my other apps that I liked were popular and supported for a couple years but then fell by the wayside. Flash cards deluxe justified my getting an iPod touch back in the day and it’s up there with YouTube and Google news for most used apps for me.

Japanese. I spend huge amounts of time setting up and using multi-sided cards with FCD!!

Risking thread drift. . . I just stumbled on a method for capturing images, sound and subtitles from Netflix Japanese language shows. Involves ShareX and a couple of Chrome extensions: Yomichan and Language Learning with Netflix. Will post to a new or different thread. . .

I have just started using this app.
I am an avid flashcard user (old school: hand written on cards) which I used to learn Italian.
I am now getting to grips with it to learn Turkish (just for fun) - although I would prefer an easier input method (i.e. a webpage like quizlet), it seems like a great way to learn digitally (and save some paper)

I have used it years ago to learn German and I just returned to it to learn Farsil !! Works beautifully, and actually, the fact that you can have more than two sides to a card is fantastically useful to learn Farsil.

I've used FCD for two years in a combination of learning Thai and Korean.. and it's a CORE part fo my language learning! I go through peaks of troughs of usage but ultimately it's my number 1 app!!
