    It’s kind of a rip off. You can hardly do anything without updating to pro which is really expensive. -sad customer ☹️

  • Great app but they pirate your info

    By Lovejoy Ranch
    I’ve used this app for a number of years now. It works good for me and I used to give it five stars until I realized that they flat out stole my content, 5,000+ flashcards created with a lot of work, and repackaged it for sale as premium content. All without asking me for it or providing compensation. Now I’m just waiting for the class action lawsuit.

  • “Can’t Connect” iPhone XR

    By MDeter67
    I’m online WiFi is working and have cellular connection but the app says “can’t connect” when saving profile information. I would like my name to be hidden but I can’t hide my last name. It appears there may be some internal server error since it can’t connect when on WiFi or cellular . Fixed the issue, apparently both first and last name have to be filled out or it crashes and can’t connect.
  • I use everyday

    By Jcmanster
    I ran into this app perhaps over 5 years ago and used it on and off. However 3 years ago I really committed to studying a few specific subjects a day. I think this is most useful if you choose the subjects most relevant to classes you are taking as both an aid or substitute depending on the content. The other thing is you can make your own flash cards too and share them if you choose. Discount Code: TREBLEBASS91 Thanks
  • Terrible

    By @refund requested 25
    I used the app to study for an exam. The content was not that great. I specifically un subscribed prior to the next billing cycle because my test was during the first cycle. These folks charged me and my apple ID didn’t show any subscriptions. Asked for a refund and they immediately responded with your request is not eligible for a refund. I will NEVER use anything associated with this app again.
  • Very Disappointed

    I’ve PURCHASED Brainscape years ago to practice my Spanish vocabulary from time to time. Now I go to open the app, I sign in, and all of my lessons are locked... lessons I’ve already started and almost finished are now prompting me to purchase a subscription to BEGIN the lesson??? There is no option to restore purchases..... So apparently since they have decided to move to a subscription based payment plan following all of these other developers, my money was wasted and my progress is lost. Very disappointing. I will be looking at other options.
  • Great app
