Flash Cards Redesigned for iPad and iPhone


One of our most popular apps, SAS Flash Cards, launched today with a brand new look-and-feel. This release responds to many helpful recommendations, suggestions, and questions we've received from users. We hope you like it, and we hope you let us know your thoughts as we begin planning the next version. In addition to the face lift, you'll notice that we've added the following:


One of the most requested features was to sync flash cards across devices. To do this, log-in using your SAS Curriculum Pathways account or create your FREE account today. Learn more about signing up for Curriculum Pathways in this post.

PrintMixed Decks

Another popular request was the ability to mix card and question types in a single deck. Decks can now include any combination of text, images, sound, or math cards with true/false, multiple choice, fill-in-the-blank, or plain question types.


PrintImproved Editing

We improved editing, so it's now easier to make changes or fix a typo. You can change the title of decks you create at any time. You can also fix any card in your deck and add or remove cards at your leisure.


sharingInstant Sharing

You can now easily share decks of flash cards with friends without waiting for deck approval. And you can make decks public, unlisted, or private. Public decks can be accessed by any SAS Flash Cards user. Unlisted decks can be shared using a link provided by the app and therefore are visible only to users who have received the link. Private decks can be accessed with your account only.




To complement the use of SAS Flash Cards on your iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch, we've also launched a web version in our IdeaLab. This is a pre-release of the web version that will come out later this spring. Your flash cards are synced across mobile devices and the web with this update. You can take the web version of Flash Cards for a test drive here. Let us know what you think of the web version as we continue to fine-tune the final details.
