    I do not leave many reviews but I thought this deserved one. I am using Brainscape to learn Spanish l. I also downloaded and paid for 4 other apps including babbel, fluentU, Duolingo etc. I used Brainscape for 2 days and then switched over and used babbel a few days as well as the others. I found that the speed of my learning/ memorization ability was 10x that of something like babbel. Babbel is so so slow with all the games and repeating and filling in blanks. After 2 days and maybe 8 hours I had barely learned anything. FluentU was great for building a spanish ear but it is also hard to learn new content watching children’s shows. After playing with all of the various learn Spanish apps for 2 weeks and at least 5 hours a day I quickly discovered that Brainscape vs babbel learning can be compared to driving a fararri vs a ford pickup truck. Brainscape is easy, fast and efficient. I wish it had a few things such as the ability to swipe back to a previous card or better cut/paste ability if I want to look up or save words but I can’t really complain much. I kept fluentU for a while as it is valuable to train your Spanish ear. *Edit* One addition to my comments with the Spanish cards is an annoyance that I think slows my learning process in Brainscape. They sometimes shove 2,3,or 4 ways of saying things into one card. Sometimes some of these could be moved off into separate cards. Some make sense to have together. It really slows down my learning process because I have to keep coming back to a card much much longer to remember there are 3 ways to say something. It would help if they said in the card there are 3 ways of saying X. I’ve had to skip a few cards out of frustration because it was slowing me way down or I’m just angry because there are too many concepts on a card. I think after 100 hours studying, this probably waisted many hours.
  • Great application, but needs highlighting

    I love so many things about this app: keeps track of progress, repeats content I haven’t mastered, and great online tool for creating cards. Very awesome. My one request is that you add highlighting option for questions and answers from the mobile app or the ability to edit cards with rich text formatting directly from the mobile app. With highlighting I can highlight specific words or phrases to emphasize content for memorization. This would work great with long answers.
  • All y'all folks.

    I was expecting more functions , like highlighting and photo / audio insertions on ipad and iphone, beside app malfunctions in both devices. I have purchased a lifetime pro version.

    I use this app for exam review. It works very well on multiple devices and syncs your progress. You have access to other decks, created by other people. I used to write my own flash cards, but this is much more efficient. This review is an edit. Initially I had software problems with the app - my decks disappeared and I had problems getting in touch with customer support. However, that was fixed, and I didn’t have problems since.
