Not everyone learns efficiently through the same method. There has been countless research conducted on the matter, and while some people thrive by reading relevant literature, or by soaking it all up at the last minute, others need audio stimulation. For example, some people struggle with their reading thanks to dyslexia and other conditions. Enter Video Cards, an app that allows you to create your own audio-based flash cards.

At its most basic level, Voice Cards is a speech recorder. It’s the ability to create numerous entries that can be arranged into a playlist that makes it stand out. Voice Cards also enables you to create both questions and answers for each entry, thus making everything you could possibly need easily accessible.

You can set Voice Cards to autoplay which means you can leave it alone while you concentrate on answering the questions. This offers the added advantage of being able to get on with other things while studying – providing you’re able to multitask of course! You can also use a shake mode to make the controls even simpler although I did find the default controls and touchpad controls easier to navigate. Finally, there’s an option to shuffle the cards which keeps you on your toes so that you don’t just remember everything in the exact same order every time.

Voice Cards is a fantastic little app for students. It’s also useful for anyone who’s trying to learn something for their work. For such a low price, it really is worth a shot if you want a new way of studying.
