Share a deck by email

Note: When you use the built-in Share menu, your own study statistics are not included in the shared deck. If you would like to share a deck including your study statistics, locate the deck in Finder and send that file.

Share a deck through a link

Note: When you use the built-in Share menu, your own study statistics are not included in the shared deck. If you would like to share a deck including your study statistics, locate the deck in Finder and send that file.

The deck is uploaded to flashcardhero.com. Everybody that you send the shared link to can then download the cards.

Shared links expire automatically after 30 days.

Export a deck as printable PDF

Cards are arranged for double-sided printing, 4 cards per page.

Note: If contents of a card do not fit on a printed card, that card is highlighted with a red background. Try to split up large cards into multiple smaller ones to make sure that they fit on a printed card.

Note 2: Cards exported as PDF are meant for printing only and cannot be imported back into the app. If you would like to be able to use the cards with the app later on, share the “.flashcards” file directly.

Export a deck as lecture notes

With the lecture notes format, cards and topics are added to a PDF document one after another taking up as much room as needed (in contrast to the fixed-size printable PDF export option).

Note : Cards exported as lecture notes PDF are meant for printing only and cannot be imported back into the app. If you would like to be able to use the cards with the app later on, share the “.flashcards” file directly.

Import cards from Cram.com

Please note that Cram.com does not allow 3rd party apps like Flashcard Hero and others to import cards anymore.

The menu “Import from Cram.com” will be removed from the app with the next update.

Importing cards from Quizlet.com does still work, so please use Quizlet.com instead.

Import cards from Flashcardhero.com

Imported cards are added to the deck that is currently open.

Import cards from .tsv or .csv files

Both, the .tsv and .csv format, do not support images or text formatting (only plain text). If possible, always prefer sharing your decks directly through the app or by sharing “.flashcards” files directly.

For the .tsv format, the question and answer have to be separated by a single Tab character, one card per line.

For the .csv format, the question and answer have to be separated by a comma “,” – one card per line.
