Terrible Update Issues- please change it back!!!
By Emily Klingman
I am so upset. I have used quizlet for years since starting in medical school and have hundreds of flashcard sets. In the past few months, it has been glitchy but the recent update in the past month really destroyed it. My cards keep getting shuffled without me using the shuffle feature and it is wasting huge amounts of time to place them back in order, especially since there is no easy way to do this. Sometimes, cards are also not saved somehow. Again, I have been using this app for years so I know it has not always been this way. Also, the phone update made it so that you cannot turn your phone sideways to see the cards which makes cards with a lot of text on them difficult to read. You also used to be able to enlarge pictures and zoom in very well on your phone, but now you can’t do either. You also can’t go through the cards on your phone as easily as before by simply swiping left or right. The new system is much more complicated and annoying to use. The appearance of the cards also do not look as clean as they did before, by trying to make them look more like a stack of paper flashcards. I have relied on quizlet for a long time and recommended it to many people. Please please please change it back to how it was before!!!!!
The update ruined everything
Please fix the app. I have relied on quizlet through nursing school. It is my everything when it comes to studying. The new update, which happened a couple of days ago, has made quizlet unreliable and defective. I’m so upset. Now, when I go to add to a set, and click add notecard, it doesn’t jump to the end and continue the set. Instead, it inserts it as like, card 3. Right at the beginning. I have to scroll through 200+ notecards to get to the end. It’s way too easy to accidentally DELETE a note card! Never to know what it was again. ALSO.. if I try to delete that random blank one that was inserted in the beginning, it shuffles the order of my notecards. The order they are in is very important in what I’m studying. Then I go to “set to original order” and it doesn’t change it back. They’re stuck. It’s touchy, finicky. ANOTHER EX- If I go to add a new notecard, I type whatever question I want into the front, click the “flip”, type the answer in the back, and if I flip it back to the front to add something, what I typed has disappeared. I now have to retype it all out. It’s like I have to save each and every notecard in fear they’ll delete or the text will go away. Please... I’m BEGGING you to save my college career by bringing the original Quizlet back. Thank you
Quizlet Makes Studying Easier and More Effective
Quizlet is part of the reason I am able to maintain a 4.0 college gpa! I find that simply the act of creating my flash card sets familiarizes me with the material enough that I will only have to review it a few times before the test. Flash card sets are a great way to organize the information that is actually important for the test and by having it on an app, you can look over flash cards anytime you have five minutes! I love that I can add photos to note cards! The only thing I wish is that I could put the photo on the “term”side instead of the “definition” side so that when I am studying my flash cards by term, I am shown the photo and prompted to give the indicated answer.
I also wish you could have more than one diagram per study set and that there was a way to study multiple sets combined together or to bulk-edit the notecards, such as splitting one set into two separate sets by simply checking the cards you wanted to “transfer” to a new set.
Amazing study app
I bought the premium for $12 for a year because I knew how many Flashcards I used. I love flashcards. Buying the premium included so many other things that I really enjoy. You should really get this app if you make a lot of flashcards to study. The service also turns your cards into different varieties of questions that are very helpful to test your knowledge like multiple choice and fill in the blank. The premium also has a night setting which is great too.
I have two complaints which are very frustrating. The syncing of the app between devices. I have added flash cards, appropriately exited and saved the flash cards, and exited the app on my iPad. The next day I tried reviewing the flash cards on my iPhone Quizlet app and half of the terms disappeared. Now I have to re-read 20 pages to find the terms I put down. Be mindful of this potential issue!
My second complaint is editing the flash cards on my iPhone. Whenever I try editing a sentence it only lets me edit one word before it send me to the very end of the sentence. So I have to go back and forth by adding one letter and space at a time when editing words in a sentence. It is so annoying and very frustrating!
I updated to iPad OS today and quizlet is glitching.. I’m bummed.. I love this app for the Flashcards but... I was trying to add more cards earlier and instead of being able to push tab to go to the next box I have to reach up and flip the card then once done putting the definition in I have to reach up and press done which takes me back to the list then to start another card i have to press the plus sign at the bottom of the screen.. It was way to easy to move through input sections with the tab key.. I’m baffled as to why you would change that to a much more complicated entry process.. AND once I’ve done all that and got my information in the way I would like it and get through anther card or two I look up to see that the program is duplicating my definition in the term box all on it’s own.. after having to go back and correct 5 or more of them I’m throwing up my hands.. i don’t have time to fiddle with a faulty complicated app.. I loved Quizlet until these changes were made and I pay for the subscription but I won’t be doing that anymore.. I hope you guys get these things lined out soon, but if the entry process will remain the same I’ll gladly take my money elsewhere...

Quizlet makes it difficult to cancel a subscription, and the company minimizes visibility in finding how to cancel. I haven't owned a subscription service that is so difficult to cancel. I will say at least an email reminder is sent that my subscription will auto-renew. (Maybe that’s mandated?) That is where making it intuitive ends. There’s no link to manage your subscription nor go to quizlet in the email. Ok, I’ll let that go to the possibility that the makers of the email aren’t great at their job. So i perform the next step to open my quizlet app on my phone and enter into my account settings. I click on the very small fine print (nice play) at the bottom to cancel my subscription service. But wait, I’m not able to cancel my subscription. The message is hyperlinked, however, it brings me to the quizlet help center. I type in cancel subscription, but then it says I need to go to where I paid for the app. (I.e. google play, apple, or quizlet). The journey to cancel doesn’t end there, but my time writing this review does. Shrewd play quizlet. Very shrewd indeed...
Love it!! Great way to study!

I love quizlet because it allows me to study and create sets for all of my exams and tests in school. It’s perfect because I can label diagrams and create flash cards to help me remember certain terms. I like to use quizlet as a “study guide” whenever I’m putting terms into a set so that I can review everything I’ll need to know for a upcoming test. This is really ideal during finals week 😂😅📚, although I would only recommend one thing. I think that it would be even more helpful if there were a couple more ways to learn my terms. I was thinking that there could be a writing feature where you can use your finger to draw/write the answers out so that they can stick in your brain a bit more. Maybe you could also have the ability to draw (I know that you could upload a picture, but..) an image on the flash card to help you remember the term a bit more. Overall it really is a great app 👍🏻 to study 📖 with whether you are on the go or just at home.
I LOVE this app, it’s so amazing!

I’ve had Quizlet for my whole entire school career, and it has saved my grades on sooo many occasions. Especially in anatomy, Spanish and medical terminology. Having Quizlet allowed me to study efficiently and effectively. And also for having it for so long, allowed me to see the app grow. It’s enhanced algorithm allowed me to barely type a medical term and it would automatically show up in suggestions, then when I selected the definition, it too automatically had three variations of the definition without me barley even having to type a thing. This perk allowed me to build multiple sets in a breeze, and left me more time to study. There’s just so much more but I don’t want this review to go on forever. So I would highly suggest this app for anyone who needs to study a lot and to do it efficiently, even if you pay for the premium feature, it’s so helpful for when you’d need a picture or any other effect, the very few bucks you’d spend are 100% worth it!
This app is a lifesaver
Quizlet rocks! I use it to study for all my exams, and the best part is that you don’t have to lug around a bunch of flashcards everywhere. You can make your own study sets, look at other people that are studying the same thing, and you can invite people you know to join your class. You can share your flashcards and study them together. My friends and I have been doing that—we have a class, and we divide up the flashcard-making and then share them so we don’t have to make a gazillion flashcards. Also, if you’re really competitive (which I definitely am) they have some really fun and cool games to help you practice, and you can try to beat your friends’ score. The “Learn” setting is really effective; it focuses on the things you need to practice and also introduces newer cards. This app is basically everything you need to ace your exams and tests all in one place. No more taking binders, folders, backpacks, and index card boxes to the library for me!😂
Simply the BEST flashcard app.

I tried out several flash card apps, and it's almost ridiculous how much better this one was than the others. It's very easy to keep the cards organized and edited. I love the fact that I can log into the website to create and modify the cards, and then access and edit them from anywhere with the app. The program even detected the languages that I was typing in on each side of the card for me, and offers the special symbols for each language to easily insert as I type! The cards can be randomized and it's easy to switch to testing from one side of the card to the other. You can even generate quizzes and games based upon your card sets! This is just a wonderful, easy-to-use study aid that I highly recommend if you're looking for a good mobile flashcard app.
Update: I’ve recently upgraded to Quizlet Plus, and I wish I’d done so a long time ago! So many useful features, especially long term learning!
