Flashcard tool for mobile app

Hey everyone!

I just found the flashcard and word review tools on the Duolingo website; I hadn't known about them until now because I always use the mobile app. I think the flashcard tool would be a great addition to the app so we can review our words on the go!

Please, Duolingo, add flashcards for those of us without a home computer!

A great idea. Even a small, seperate, flashcard app so I can flip through it while I sit on the bus.

Have a lingot.

Thank you! :)

I would love to see this functionality in the mobile app too! Even a simple list look up with major word forms, especially for verbs, would suffice.

Just in case someone is still interested in this, I've made a simple mobile app for this. It shows your list of known words (same as in "Words" section) and allows to test yourself using flashcards (same as in "Review flashcards" section), it also works in offline. To login, use same credentials as for Duolingo site. (Your login and password are sent only to Duolingo servers)

Thank you this is exactly what I was hoping for - have a lingot!

Wow, this is amazing! Exactly what I've been scouring the internet for Thankyou!

I'd like to see the flash cards on the app as well as the audio of the word/phrase to help with the recall

Try ankisrs.net.

Anki flash cards are more powerful and flexible than Duo's and they work on mobile. In fact, you can sync them across platforms.

You can build your own deck or download a pre-built. You can add audio, images or movie clips to cards. You can adjust the refresh rate on individual cards on the fly or let the anki algorithm manage it for you.

I use a pre built deck of the one thousand most common words in French. I built another deck for verb tense conjugation plus a deck of Sitesurf's comments, selected about.com bits and interesting Duo examples.

I have my p.c. anki set up for type to answer which means when it flashes the front card, it waits for me to type in the answer which is then matched letter for letter with the front card. The default setting which is better for mobile is just to display the cards rather than require typed in answers.

It's free.

Check it out. See if it suits your purpose.

Anki sounds a lot like Memrise, which is brilliant for this, available for Android and Apple (as well as online), and has ready-made decks for a lot of Duolingo courses. And is free, of course.

But I don't think it is a simple matter on Memrise to add movie clips, rap rhythms, melodies, animations, images or whatever helps you remember the material.

Thanks for the suggestion!

That is a really good app; I'm still only 60% of my way through the Italian course, though, so I don't think the pre-built decks will have only the words I know. I'll definitely try Ankisrs for my Digital Media Arts classes, though!

September 25, 2014


The course on memrise is broken up by the structure on Duolingo so you can use it as you learn :) (even get a head start)

I tend to find the best combo is Duolingo for some grammar and memrise for recalling all the info.

Me too, yes, please! I would really like to have flashcards in the Duolingo Android app.

November 25, 2015



This should help you. :)

July 19, 2016


Thank you!

July 20, 2016


You're welcome!

Having flashcards and words in the Duolingo Android app would be a great plus!

November 25, 2015


Came here to ask for exactly the same thing ! I know there's many more solutions for flash cards out there, but a flashcard functionality from Duolingo, where It updates itself according to what my performance is showing, is the best thing ever !

There are tons of other apps, but I don't use none, I'm not interested in making flash cards I won't use, Duolingo's offering can be different though, since I'm studying its courses, and sometimes I'm on the go and don't have the time to put my headphones up and start typing ! Just want to hover over the words I need to know (or get to know) today. Thank you so much.

I found this thread earlier this week, and they've just announced TinyCards today. Great timing, and I'm excited to have something tied directly to my Duolingo progress.

July 19, 2016


It's iOS only as of now. :(

July 19, 2016


I know, I thought the app and website would be released today...oh well.

July 19, 2016


I discovered the app yesterday and came here today to see if anyone had found a mass card creation shortcut. Doing them one at a time within the app is tedious and hideously time consuming when you've got hundreds or thousands of cards to input e.g. my entire Duolingo Italian word list.

Maybe this will be a feature of the website for Tiny Cards?

January 23, 2017


I got a new phone, can I pick up where I left-off with the old one so I don't have to start from the beginning?

August 15, 2017
