Applications for Education
Putting flashcards on a phone isn't going to revolutionize education, but it does make it a little easier for students to study on the go. Students are far more likely to remember to take their phones with them wherever they go than they are to grab a stack of index cards they've written on. If your students need some digital flashcards, have them search Test Soup for a set that fits their needs.
