Family movie night? There's an app for that
Download our new mobile app on iOS and Android.
A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Kids can learn to memorize facts about many subjects via the flashcards created and shared on StudyDroid: Flashcards 2.0. Teens can search the website for flashcard packs on an almost endless supply of topics -- from anatomy to Spanish vocabulary, from astronomy to zoology -- created by others. They also can learn to create digital flashcards themselves on the app or the website, with images if desired, and sync them to their mobile devices. Once teens figure out the tricky user interface, StudyDroid is an OK tool for entering and studying flashcards -- but there are better options available.
Ease of Play
This app is not as easy to use as some other flashcard-based apps. The app's user interface isn't as intuitive as the website itself. The website-app connection is almost essential, which teens may not understand at first when downloading or paying for the app. Users likely will need to dig into the tutorials on the website to get a good grasp of the app. Once they understand how to use it, there are numerous settings to customize flashcards.
Violence & Scariness
All flashcards are user-submitted and no oversight is suggested. Some of the online flashcard sets may reference violence or contain violent images.

Sex, Romance & Nudity
All flashcards are user-submitted and no oversight is suggested. A few of the online flashcard sets reference sex, either in academic or simply lurid contexts.

All flashcards are user-submitted and no oversight is suggested. Lots of swear words such as "s--t," "bitch," "f--k" used in titles of the flashcards.

Products & Purchases
The website (users have to use the website to get the full use of this app) contains prominent ads throughout. The free version of the app contains ads; the paid version does not. The Quiz feature is unavailable in the free version.
Drinking, Drugs & Smoking
A few of the user-submitted online flashcard sets reference drugs, but this is usually in an academic context.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that StudyDroid Flashcards 2.0 is the rather complicated companion app to the create-and-share flashcard website StudyDroid. Teens can search the website for flashcard packs on an almost endless supply of topics created by others. They also can create flashcards themselves on the app or the website (after they create a user account) -- with images, if desired -- sync, and review them. Any card mastered can be labeled "Known," and it moves to the back of the digital pack. A quiz feature is an option in the paid version of the app. All flashcard packs that users make for themselves default to public sharing, unless they activate the "private" setting, which means users can find flashcards on thousands of topics, not all appropriate for kids. The 2.0 version also links to other flashcard website/apps, such as Quizlet.
Is It Any Good?
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.
