    Thank you for your input... The application you suggested does not provide any of the functionality that my app provides. Study Flash does not allow you to include pictures or audio. Or keep track of how you did while studying. Nor does this application provide any way to automatically cater to what you need to study.

    Thank you.

    What's with people trashing developer's work directly to the developer? He's stating it's in the new update cause possibly some people might've tried the first version out and gotten irritated at the lack of that function, and so deleted it. If they know that's been fixed, they may redownload the app and eventually tell others it's a decent app. I'd do the same as a developer. I keep up to date on a few apps that lack what I'm looking for, but show potential of getting those features. Some finance apps might be perfect if they were tweaked just a little to make new transaction entries faster.

    And the developer's right, his app offers more features than the app it's being compared to.

    Thank you Goku :) I added the feature to email me from directly in the app, hopefully people will use that to make requests for feature enhancements.

    Sparky, your friend's app is a joke compared to iFlashCardPro. The import/export "function" (if you can even call it that) is copy and paste to either email or text. In order to import cards, they must be in the correct text format, which requires that I first make cards directly on the phone in order to export them to see what the format requires. It's just criminal that Study Flash tries to charge 99 cents for that "feature". Any users who acknowledge how LAME that process is would need to make all of their cards directly on the app itself. And y'know what? That might actually be okay for the most avid text-messaging-fanatic... if it weren't for the fact that STUDY FLASH CONSTANTLY CRASHES FOR NO OBVIOUS REASON. Tell your friend I want my dollar back so I can give it to the iFlashCardPro developer as a tip for doing so much better of a job.

    For those wondering, here is exactly why iFlashCardPro is so much better for me:
    Firstly, it hasn't crashed on me yet.
    Secondly, I can easily import my notes from Google Docs which works greatly for me. I copy and paste my already-typed-out notes into a doc (I take notes on my laptop during class) and download them into the phone (without paying an additional 99 cents... and Google Docs allows me to share my notes with the others in my study group).
    Thirdly, the picture functionality is great too. I take pictures of the diagrams drawn on the whiteboards during class and easily drop them onto cards for quick and easy reference. Not many other flashcard apps even allow pictures.
    Fourthly, it isn't overcrowded with way too much information (or god-awful ads) to where it doesn't look like a flashcard anymore.
    And finally, it costs $2 and not $5. (And the $5 apps wanted me to download additional desktop software to do import/export of cards). $2 is less than a pack of flashcards at the campus bookstore and iFlashCardPro offers more than what I can get with regular flashcards.

    So if I wanted a useless app, I could get one for free (and possibly pay more for new features that are just as useless). Of if I wanted the exact same features and had some desire to put more third-party software on my computer (not all of which is free), I could pay more (lots more in some cases). So really, I'm content taking the Goldilocks approach.
