Cardboard brings flashcards to life. Spend less time configuring and more time getting better grades. The only app that lets you see lots of cards at once, so you can review a whole vocabulary set minutes before the exam.

Contact me from within the app if you have any questions.

Your cards look great in Cardboard. Tap a deck and watch the cards fly into place. Each screen flows into the next. Customize your board with one of four background fabrics. Pick a font for your cards. Do you need text centered on the front and left-aligned on the back? You can adjust that too.

You should be able to jump from the 3rd card in a set to the 72nd without getting bored. You can flip through your cards in order or use the preview slider to find the card you’re looking for, no matter where it is in the set.

Play the memory game and get fast at pairing terms and definitions. Choose from three board sizes to craft the perfect challenge. The Starred Only mode lets you narrow your focus to cards you've marked important with a star.

Use the powerful Google Docs integration to import two-column spreadsheets. Paste an image URL into a cell and Cardboard will download the image. Keep your data safe in the cloud. Your friends or students can import spreadsheets you share.

Cardboard integrates with, the largest flash cards website around. Access millions of free sets on the arts, literature, languages, math, science, history, standardized tests, health-care, law, and real estate.
