Hey everyone! I just released my first major app called FlashDroids. FlashDroids allows you to create flash cards on your Android powered device. In addition to your own flash cards, there is an in-app marketplace(all free) that allows you to download other user's decks. The app supports Honeycomb, and Android versions 2.2 and up. Additionally, by visiting flashdroids.com, you can create new decks, view others, and even study your cards; all from your browser. Once you create your new decks, or add some from the marketplace, you can simply sync them in-app and they will all appear. I also added folders which allows you to organize all of your cards and decks.

I really spent a lot of time on this trying to make it the perfect application. Obviously it can never be perfect, that is why I need your help. If you purchase FlashDroids($.99), I would appreciate if you let me feedback here, or email me, or on http://flashdroids.com. I really want this app to work for all people and I believe we can accomplish that.

Thanks!

Do you have any screen shots of the actually flash card?

It looks to me like all the screenshots are of the list of cards, not the card itself. Personally I couldn't buy this app without seeing that.

Just my $0.02

Sorry forgot all about that, lol. I will get some put on there asap. I kept the actual cards very simple as to not distract from the studying experience. I plan to add settings allowing you to change the view of them.
Here is a quick one:


I plan to add settings to allow for font size changes, colors, etc. in a future update.

I feel like i'm obliged to comment because of DJ. I have an Incredible 2 and had been in contact with him for his involvement with this forum over google+ and he helped me get informed about root for my phone. I was unaware that the INC2 didn't have root since I was an iphone user until a month ago ( :D ). I got sort of an alpha version to help find bugs. I am a current student attending UofArizona and find this app to be very helpful when studying. I didn't think it was going to be good or useful, but now that I have it and have been in communication with DJ about what needs to be fixed, it is very close to perfect. Of course there are bug's and such right now, but while i'm at work and was trying to study for my summer classes, this became very useful. It's nice to see some school oriented apps, as there is a lack of variety right now. Hope this takes off!

Awesome idea! I will recommend some of my college bound emplyoees check it out. I wish I had something like this while I was still in school. Although at the time I had a blackberry storm so I dont think anything could have helped me...

Pushed out another update last night. The features just keep coming! Also, added support for all devices down to 1.6. I was using some apis that I didn't need too, so I removed those so more people can create a great studying experience.

Changelog:
(New) Added support for all Android devices 1.6 and up.
(New) Study all decks in a folder at one time. Go to the folder, press the icon in the upper right.
(Fix) Make deck description clear when creating multiple decks.
(Updated) Added study entire folder text to Help screen.
