Flashcard Clean-Up: Prepping for Good Things to Come

My name is Katie Cooper and as Community Manager, I am here to listen to your rants, raves, praise, and anything else in between as it relates to your studying experience on StudyBlue.  [BLOG POST SPOILER ALERT] I will also be keeping you savvy about recent information on major site activities and updates.

A flashcard ‘clean-up’ has been scheduled for the near future as a means of adjusting minor flashcard formatting errors that occur when copying and pasting material from an outside source (i.e. Microsoft Word) into STUDYBLUE.  In anticipation for near future releases (hint: rhymes with ‘iFad gap’), this measure will allow for a more consistent card-viewing experience across multiple platforms, as well as improve our ability to show you related flashcard content through searches and provide accurate character counts.  Most of the formatting modifications made to flashcards will be unnoticeable and while we do not expect any problems to surface as a result, we will be monitoring carefully in the days to follow.

If you notice any major changes to your study experience, please contact us for review on a one-to-one basis.  After the updates have been made to the site on Friday morning, you can expect future flashcards (specifically ones with information copied and pasted from another source) to be automatically formatted accordingly.

This ‘clean-up’ will require a planned temporary site outage, affecting both the website and mobile apps, on Wednesday, February 1.  Please visit our community page for more information.

    I am having a lot of trouble with Studyblue on my ipad. I have a keyboard and studyblue doesn’t turn to the side on the main page. Also, the main issue is, i cannot go from the term to the definition with the tab key whereas on my laptop i could. i also cannot go to the next card with the tab key. This slows me down a lot and i am now looking for another note taking website because i need to be able to push the tab key as a short cut instead of having to tap my ipad everytime i was to go from the term to the definition then to the next card i am creating. PLEASE FIX THIS!

      Thanks for giving StudyBlue a try. We are working on an iPad app and it should be out soon.

    I find it really annoying that I cannot access my flashcards on iPad. If I go to Studyblue.com via Safari on my iPad, I get routed to a page that tells me to download the Studyblue app for iPhone and there’s no way for me to access the full site. This is a HUGE oversight as I have a final tomorrow and no way to use my iPad to study. My iPhone screen is just too small to use for a full 3 hours study session and I can’t take my large iMac with me to a coffee shop to study. Really disappointed that I spent so much time inputting my flashcards only to not be able to use them on my iPad.

      Laura – An iPad app is in the works and set to be released in the very near future. Something worth checking out might also be the free app called ‘Dophin Browser’ available in the iTunes App Store. The browser offers a ‘Desktop Mode’, which allows you to view any website as if you were doing so from a computer.
