Flash Study is an easy to use flashcard app. It allows you to create decks and cards without any distraction like: ads and tons of features you'll never use.
The goal of this app is to bring to you a clean and easy way to have your flashcards in your pocket.
Flashcards are cards in which one side has a question and the other one the answer, after flipping all the cards of the deck for about 2 or 3 times you'll have most of the cards memorized!
- Create as many decks and cards as you want.
- Choose if you want to see checked cards or not.
- Clean and beautiful design.
- Animations (but not slow so you don't get too distracted while studying).
- Percentage of checking cards right on home screen.
- No ads.
- Easy to use.
- Supports all devices.
- Share to Twitter and Facebook.
Why you should use flashcards:
"Flashcards engage “active recall”
When you look at the front side of a flashcard and think of the answer, you are engaging a mental faculty known as active recall. "
"Flashcards utilize your metacognitive faculties.
When you reveal the answer side of a flashcard to assess your correctness, you are essentially asking yourself “How did my answer compare to this correct answer?” and “How well did I know (or not know) it?” This act of self-reflection is known as metacognition. Research shows that applying metacognition tends to ingrain memories deeper into your knowledge."
Flashcards allow for confidence-based repetition
Because flashcards exist loosely, rather than tied to a book or document, you are able to separate them into piles based on whether (or how often) you need to study them again. This practice of confidence-based repetition is proven by decades of research to be the most scientifically optimized way to improve memory performance.

How is ‘Receptive Colours’ Different From Other Vocab Apps?
Receptive Colours is an Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) program for students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) or other learning difficulties to learn language. This educational app is developed from an evidence-based teaching methodology, ‘Discrete Trial Teaching’, to maximise learning. This app is also suitable for typically developing students.
•Take pictures or upload photos from album to custom-make your own colours!
•Record your own voice for your own colours!
Clear Learning Goals
•Specific target colours can be selected by you or by the computer for your child to learn!
Game Mode and Learning Mode
•Learning mode: Learn 2-3 colours systematically until mastery!
•Game mode: Play all the colours for fun with supervision!
•3 different pictures for the each colour and different themes to promote generalization learning.
Specially designed features in ‘Learning Mode’
•Effective prompt and prompt fading procedures to promote learning of colours.
•When the correct answer is selected, expanded trial (a different instruction) will be issued in the next trial to prevent robotic responding.
•Test trial (target colour) will be issued again after the expanded trial to ensure learning of the colour.
•When the wrong answer is selected, immediate corrective feedback will be issued and the screen will be locked (inter-trial interval) to prevent random playing.
•You can only earn star if you answer correctly at the 1st touch.
•Focus to learn 2-3 colours at a time until mastery!
•Scoreboard with success rate for each colour for evaluation of learning progress!
