For a free app, FLIPCARDS is a quite useful flashcard tool. The flashcards created within the app are quite lovely, with bright colors and text and your own photos to keep things interesting. Creating and editing the flashcards and navigating around the app is not always intuitive, but viewing them is simple and fun.

The integration with Quizlet is a mixed bag. Access to the flashcard sets on Quizlet has a high potential for learning, but also for exposure to inappropriate and inaccurate content. In addition, while some of the features included on the Quizlet site are available here, such as sorting search results by most studied, alphabetical, or most recently added, others are missing -- like the ability to browse by category or transform flashcards into quizzes and test yourself. Users interested in additional functionality can check out the pro version of the app.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
