StudyBlue [iOS Universal; Free]

Incorporating games into the learning process can be a useful approach, but sometimes students just need a simple set of notecards in order to learn new content. One of the best flash card tools is StudyBlue, which provides mobile access to notes, flashcards and study guides.

The app allows parents, teachers or students to create custom flashcard sets and study sets with both their own material and recommended content based on the subject that is being studied. Study sets can include images as well as audio.

If there is no time to assemble a custom study set, students can search through over 250+ million student-authored flashcards and notes as well as use the app’s Study Guide feature to automatically assemble a guide based on the subject that needs to be reviewed.
