Wish i could give it Zero stars  Nick_canNOT  1 star

Broke college students looking for study cards.?? This isn’t the app. $75.00 dollars to use. I might as well just study out the book FOR FREE.. Not this one keep scrolling 💯


Bug  ChrisGuerrero10  4 star

Hey there I think I found a bug in this application because each time I start it and start writing my flash cards when I get to my second flash card the app crashes and closes! Any ideas on how to fix this ? :(


Great app, but not really worth paying???  Sindereee  1 star

This is a great app for studying, but I don’t see a reason to charge students when wanting to use other user’s study cards. As a struggling college student, I’m already paying a good amount for other stuff. I understand they need to earn money but...maybe try to make it affordable for others? Can’t believe wanting to study and learn comes with a price.


IM SO MAD I HATE THIS APP  hub457  1 star

I took the time to type out 47 flash cards for a test I need to study for today and now it’s telling me I can’t even read those cards or study with them unless I upgrade! It’s like 56.99 a month and that’s ridiculous I spent so much time trying to get those cards ready and they screwed me over so definitely don’t download this trash app!


Not good  Monthbang  1 star

I read the reviews and saw how bad they were and I was trying to find an app to help me study and I thought I would give it a go anyway. It was so hard. I was not able to get past the second step to set up a class. This is not a good study app and I do not recommend it.


Learning is expensive af  Idcthisappsucked  1 star

The fact that you have to pay money to be able to study is ridiculous in my opinion.

Jeungi Min

Functional...Sort of?  Jeungi Min  2 star

I’ve been looking for a good flash card app for a while, and decided to try this one out. I like that unlike some I’ve tried, it doesn’t seem to have a limit on what you can study. While it functions decently for flash cards, the app’s layout seems like a wreck to me. I added myself as a lifelong learner to avoid having to add classes and whatnot, but it’s still required. In fact, to find your sets, you have to either put them in a class or an “interest” where you have to scroll through other people’s items you don’t need just to find yours. Otherwise, the only way I was able to view my sets was in recently studied. I just want the simple ability to have my own folders and my own sets without the cluttered feeling of shared “interest” folders. It’s honestly a turndown when what I’d like is a simple way to review flashcards whenever I want. Perhaps I’m missing something, but I think I’m going to search elsewhere until this is attended to.


No more studying apparently  Zeebmaster  1 star

I can no longer study all the cards at random! What happened? Do I have to upgrade just to do anything?

Magistra Sowell

Unresponsive  Magistra Sowell  1 star

I can no longer choose preferences for flash cards. I touch the screen to choose all, or definition but nothing happens. I tried hitting reset, still nothing. I restarted my phone, still nothing. This means I can no longer use this in class with my students. I guess I have to go back to paper if you can’t fix this.

Not the same  Kitty curry  1 star

Go back to the old version it was much better

Seriously guys why even bother

Nice  Seriously guys why even bother  5 star

Really great for studying for hsc finals thanks studyblue dudes!!!


Good portable flash cards  Hanbut  4 star

I found the app can be glitchy at times not showing cards. Also wish you could share files of flash cards not just decks. Overall it's a great way of studying my flash cards on the train or in the car. Simple and effective


Easy to use  Flik75  5 star

I am studying Indonesian since moving here six months ago. App is easy to use and is helping me a lot.


Frustrating.  Som1heeere  2 star

The interface is extremely annoying and frustrating. It could be made so much better so easily.

Rali Hart

Needs some improvement  Rali Hart  3 star

Has the ability to be a great app. Downsides: ongoing fees instead of outright purchase, free version very lacking if you want to measure improvement. Could be impressive if the developers also modify it to accept sketches directly onto the cards, and allow a choice of colour schemes. Pros: really easy to get started, otherwise well set up. I am using this to study a language.


Was great, now poor  Myspecialcherry  2 star

Originally this was a great app for students like me to study with; however after the recent update the flash cards do not work saying it's 'experiencing problems or the 'server is not working.' Please fix, I need to pass my exams

Chimp on fire

Amazing app  Chimp on fire  5 star

I have started using it to study for my yearly exams and are helping me so much. It gives you flip cards that you can mark right or wrong and study what you don't know and also they do a test for you which is really good. I also like the overview sheet that you can print out. Amazing app definitely recommend!!!


Great app  FINGRD  5 star

Having tried a few other similar apps and having trouble creating cards. The seamless excel upload, to ease of use on my phone while walking between lectures. I can't wait to put all this to task, at finals at the end of year.


Nicely designed app  plainclothesman87  4 star

Nicely designed app, good functionality. Definitely helped with my studies. Some intermittent issues with results not displaying after studying a deck.

Zahli mb

Love it  Zahli mb  5 star

A great way to cram before a test or if your more organised you can spend 10 minuets a day and ace the test. Highly recommend the app


Moving in up  Pre-Brainiac  5 star

This is a well thought app and works great!


Helped me get A's since 2010!  nikkiiiiiiiiiiiix12648273  5 star

I LOVE StudyBlue! I've been using it since 2010, from an 8th grader in high school to a current junior in college. I will probably use it forever!! I love that you can mark cards as correct or incorrect and then keep studying the wrongs until it is drilled into your brain! Recommendation: PLEASE make an app for the Apple Watch! I would love to study in line at the store, on the bus, etc when I don't feel like getting out my phone! Love love love this app! Outshines all the rest because you can sign in, access from other computers, make quizzes from your flash cards & more! Perfect way to study


So helpful!  mam72130  5 star

I love this app! It comes in handy for the person on the go as I can use my phone anywhere to study. When you get stuck somewhere waiting unexpectedly I can just pull out my phone and study! I love that I can use the microphone to speak my notes into the app! Saves me time! And as a grad student, time is precious!
