I am dissatisfied with the Flashcard Lab app. After upgrading to the Pro Unlimited version, I found little difference from the basic version, other than a final congratulatory message. The app restricts adding more than four words per tab in a spreadsheet, failing to recognize a fifth word—an unreasonable limitation for an app designed to handle extensive vocabulary lists. Despite its reasonable price of $10.99 for the Pro version, I regret my purchase. It's disappointing that such a subpar product is available on the Google extensions platform, which typically maintains my trust. Additionally, the customer support was somewhat unhelpful, merely pointing out that only four headers or labels are allowed and redirecting me to a YouTube tutorial. I do not recommend this app if you require flexibility and extensive functionality.

I only installed this extension yesterday to assist with studying for an exam. It's pretty straightforward to use and enables you to add cards to the forgotten list. It's helping me with my studies and for a one- off small charge I'm happy with the extension.

I would like to disclose that I am 20 which makes me a target demographic for a lot of these software companies creating note-taking apps, trying to sell success, and over-emphasizing the contribution the tool has on your results. I was a former Remnotes user and left due to not wanting a subscription or payment and not wanting to pay for the lifetime membership. It served me well but was much more than a flash card lab which you can look at as a pro or a con. Which led me to Flashcard lab. The reality is that flashcards can only hold pieces of information not concepts, and notes are only high-yield if you can rewrite the concepts in ways that relate to your current frame of reference before the memory consolidates. Flashcard Lab is an excellent app. It maintains the benefits of the traditional method of flashcards while enhancing it with sheets, which opens the doors for integrating and adding sheets. Addons like Talarian GPT for sheets, supercharge your sheets with ai allowing you to automate aspects of flashcard creation, which can be a double-edged sword since you are spending less time making flashcards and more time reviewing but you lose the learning opportunity from creating flashcards. This is where I kind of missed remotes since I would write notes while exposing myself to new content. Where this add-on shines is in its simplicity and ability to create printable flashcards. The app is simple which allows you to do more learning of the coursework than the software in the room. There has not been much to talk about us since. If you're familiar with sheets you know. The app is amazing I love how it integrates with Drive. Would be cool if you could play flashcards like quizlit so you can listen while working out. This is free in comparison to using remote and key mapping software. I also wish that the printing was more paper-friendly. Also, the flashcards end up being useless fresh out of the press, since there is no form of order in which the flashcards are placed. It is essentially useless. There needs to be a Question answer mirror/alignment. So the answer could be in the same row and column in the Google doc. This would also allow you to print double-sided and save paper and cut it out so it looks like an actual flash card. Especially if you use an Epson printer and use a printing paper with gsm around 250gsm or higher than the average paper thickness. Edit: You have to play around with the settings to get the results you want. Switch to "manual"

I can’t remember if I left a review already,, but I've been using this for a minute, mainly for those classic flashcards. It's clutch for me since I'm always on my computer for studying. I love typing my notes.. Helps me nail down those tough concepts and the general understanding of my subjects. Flashcards aren't my main study method, but this one's a solid backup. And props to the team—they're on it with quick responses. Love the fact that it’s now on ios. Thanks team

It works to make flash cards. No control over formatting of cards or text but it makes flashcards fine and there are very few app options for this. Also, amazing customer support. I emailed once about an issue, not expecting a reply, and I received very quick and helpful response.

Very deceptive. It is listed as free. You can do practically nothing with this as a free app as you are limited to reviewing 10 cards per set until you pay. This should not be listed as a free app - that is an abuse of the word "free". Uninstalled in 10 minutes.

Sometimes a simple app is exactly what you want and need. “Flashcard Lab” is exactly that. It makes creating and reviewing flashcards a breeze. I love the fact that it makes use of all the features in google sheets, allowing me to modify existing flashcard, create new cards and study anywhere. Today I had a question and reached out to the developer via email. I hit send, and wandered over to refill my coffee cup. I had an answer before I returned to my computer. Just unbelievable! I would have been happy with an answer in under 24 hours. Continued developer involvement in a product is a sure fire sign that the produce will continue to evolve and improve. Keep up the great work. Alan
