Like Lingua.ly but it works, any ideas?

Lingua.ly used to be my go-to for this purpose but it seems to be having a lot of troubles with their android app and I cannot access their site for some reason.

I know you can create custom courses on Memrise for this reason but you have to be on a desktop computer to do this.

i would suggest either tinycards (same people as those who made duolingo), or quizlet. (i think that tinycards may only be on ios though, but i am not sure)

Tinycards...it's temporarily down at the moment, so no one can access it right now.

If you use computer, tinycards.duolingo.com/web

But the website's down. The app's not.

You can create your own cards on Tinycards? Didn't know about that.

I don't have an Apple device and it's a bit disappointing that website is down.

I don't know about Lingua.ly and as you mentioned their site is not available atm so I can't check it out, but I've been using Flashcards Deluxe for quite some time now and are very content with it! I've heard of many others but have no experience with them so can't compare sorry ;)

Their web page does not show much information anymore either. https://lingua.ly/ I guess there is very probably something really very seriously wrong as that site has already been down for weeks now (using the Android version). At least when trying 3 weeks ago and now again always the same message 'oops something went wrong OK'.

Is there a good app out there for creating custom Flashcards on the go?

To create flashcards on the go on my mobile telephone (iOS or Android) I typically use Quizlet. You can even create them without Internet connection. Then when there is Internet connection they are automatically synchronized to the Quizlet servers on the Internet. Really a great app in this regard.


Otherwise when access to a desktop computer with a text editor:

1) The best and easiest way to create flashcards is to create comma separated lists in your favorite text editor. E.g. Notepad++, Vim, Emacs, TSE, ...

2) E.g. an English - French comma separated list could be

a girl, une fille

a house, une maison

a bicycle, une bicyclette

3) Save it to a file, e.g. yourfile.txt

4) Then upload and import it in the app (e.g. in Quizlet goto http://www.quizlet.com then in the menu there is an option to 'import')

5) You can use e.g. the apps

Anki (website + app): http://www.anki.com

Memrise (website + app): http://www.memrise.com

Quizlet (website + app): http://www.quizlet.com

6) I typically use Quizlet. Because you can learn your lists offline, so if no Internet connection. You also have text to speech. In the Quizlet 'Pro' version you can also add your own or public images files.

7) In combination with Google Translate, which also allows you to use offline (by using earlier downloaded dictionaries). http://translate.google.com

8) So ideal when you are abroad, e.g. on vacation, with little Internet connection.

9) Recommended is to use the (paid version, there is also a free version) app 'Flashcards de Luxe' http://www.flashcardsdeluxe.com you can download on it your own uploaded lists or other lists from Quizlet. It is a really great app, you can record your own voice (can be stored), draw and hand write text on your mobile telephone (that will not be stored). And you have text to speech for many languages available. Also can you search in your words lists.
