Are you looking for an app that will help you to make Flashcards?

The app Vocabulary Miner is there for you to save words and learn them with a spaced repetition algorithm. The Flashcard System learning method has proved very fruitful so far. It forces users to actively recall words from memory. The better you know the words, the less frequently you will practice them and vice versa.

Vocabulary Miner works on Android and iPhone and has also a complement web app.
