I tried the desktop version first and the audio plays automatically every time you see the card. On the app this isn't happening, which is seriously detrimental to language learning. As an aside, in language decks the user should be asked to translate from the target language into their primary language first, THEN from their primary language into the target language.
I tried to send this feedback directly, but the app said I needed an email address attached to my account to do so, despite the fact that I do have an email address attached to my account and double checked this fact.
Fun app to practice words!
Awesome and fun.
Tiny Cards, as in tiny amount of content 2/5
By Glenna Ann
I dowloaded this app as a study tool for the two languages I am practicing through Duolingo, Spanish & Irish. I come to find out that Duolingo itself only has eleven official companion decks paired with the lessons. They don’t even have an official one for Irish. The only Irish deck that pops up is a personal deck that has typos and only sort of correlates to the lessons on Duolingo. Seeing as how this app is supposed to be a companion app to Duolingo, I am very disappointed that they don’t have decks for all available lessons. The decks they actually have are very helpful, but they need to expand their content.
We should have the option to separate our decks of cards into specific units to better organize.
Cool idea 4/5
By Tune Addict
I like that I can do these for just 10 min a day!
Great for practice. 5/5
Really good for practicing things you know or need to remember.
Good App, Distracting Animation 3/5
Almost perfect app. Super helpful. Problem: when I stop to study a card an animation shows up that says “study then swipe” repeatedly as a banner on the screen. Having ADHD, I can’t focus with a bright colored moving thing on the screen so I’m forced to go to the next card whether or not I adequately reviewed it. I’ve been using the app for a bit and it still happens, so it’s not just a beginner tutorial.
If you’re better at focusing than me, this app is just fine.
As is, I’m just about ready to walk away from it.
Love it so far 4/5
I've only been using the app a few days but I like it so far.
Says there is a notification when there isn't on the home scrn 1/5
Don't get me to use the app more because you put a false notification there on the home screen. I don't like being tricked like that. It's also very annoying. It's a shame because it is a good app.
Kind of frustrating 3/5
I really enjoy this app and feel I am learning a lot. I’m using it for polish currently. It is frustrating that the audio does not always work. Polish words are hard as it is and not being able to hear them is frustrating! I do feel I am learning more than I do from duolingo itself!
I like the quizzes after a set of cards and how I'm able to retake it to strengthen my memory. It really makes learning more enjoyable.
Great learning tool 5/5
I use this duolingo and it's great to practice with before you take the tests and quizzes on duolingo so you don't make mistakes and have to stop mid quiz because you get 5 wrong you gotta wait for turns to regenerate
Helpful and easy to use 4/5
Visual aids with the reinforcement of sound is quite beneficial.
Fast skill drilling 5/5
This is an awesome app that allows you to drill basic language knowledge and quickly recall what you have learned in Duolingo. I recommended to anybody that is committed to learning French.
Not for beginners 3/5
I got this app to correlate my lessons with Duolingo. I opened the app and started my first basics lesson. I was overwhelmed! It went on to show me a few cards with words connected to phrases/pictures but then it would ask me to type out words with like 8 letters in them. I didn’t mind that but when I misplaced letters and went to look at the spelling errors I made and connect it to the correct answer the card would swipe away and it would start with the next question before I could even look at what I just wrote. I feel like if you are far in your Duolingo lessons this might be a good app but I deleted it after a few wrong answers with no explanation because I knew it would be of no help to me. Also, if you could include a turtle version of the sound that would be nice as that helps me connect the letters in the word to the sound. Hopefully I will be able to use this app in the future because flash cards are proven to improve the memory significantly.
It was great til this update! I can't get back to a functioning area
Love but one thing 4/5
By Hanna wight
I love this App!! But something is missing from it. There needs to be something you can write on see you can remember what you're learning or if there's a test you need to have somewhere to write down some information.
Duolingo, it's not 3/5
I teach European Portuguese in a public school in MA. It's disappointing that Duolingo has a 1 size fits all attitude towards languages, as witnessed by the absence of a Luso-african / European Portuguese course. But at least Duolingo recognizes European Portuguese vocabulary and doesn't tell you you're wrong for calling what it thinks ought to be a "menina" a "rapariga." Tinycards doesn't do that.
so helpful 5/5
I can't swipe!!! 1/5
I thought that this app would let me learn new languages, and this isn't it! I much prefer its cousin, Duolingo.
Great supplement to Duolingo 5/5
Tinycards works great when used alongside Duolingo. Tinycards makes sure you know the vocab and Duolingo takes care of everything else. Makes learning Spanish very accessible, in my experience.
This app is absolutely amazing! It's helping me so much that it's unbelievable! You need to get this app if you want to learn a new language!
By Monty Sue here
This is a wonderful addition while learning the beginning of French
Love it 5/5
One day, I wanted to learn a different language, but the one I had was really boring and I never had interest in it. Then the ad for Tiny Cards come to me and it looked a lot more fun than the one I had. So I said,"Ok, I will try it and see what it is like and if I don't like it, then I will delete it." Probably five minutes into the app I had already loved it and learned two new verbs that really helped me put sentences together. If I were you, I would get it. 👍
Helpful until it's not 2/5
This app was critical when I noticed that duolingo (Spanish for English speaking) wasn't testing me on all the words in each of their sections. The only way to get some words down solid was to review tiny cards, even though it didn't count toward my duolingo xp. I'm only on the last topic of the first section of duolingo and I see that in tiny cards, not all of the words in that section are there. Mis and mío are nowhere to be found in the possessive section of tiny cards, as an example. They built these apps to compliment each other, but they don't do that well.
Fun way to learn. 5/5
By Swedish trip
Hope it helps me when I get to Japan!
Great Memory enhancement 5/5
By Shaun in Brooklyn
German can be tricky. Duolingo and Tiny Cards are great to refresh or learn. Do it daily.
There are no words 5/5
This app is great!! I love it to death! It makes studying what I've already learned from Duolingo so much more fun! When I use Duolingo I usually write everything in my notebook. I still do even with this app, but when I want to get something through my head well, then I use this app to help me memorize everything I need to know! If you're looking for a good way to test yourself, this is the PERFECT app! I highly recommend both Duolingo AND Tinycards as a couple.
I feel like learning a new language got a whole easier since I started using this along with the Duolingo app 💚💚
Very good but some minor issues 4/5
First off, my review is based on the Italian deck for English speakers. Overall this app works very well for memorizing words and even verb tenses. The way the app forces you to work in both languages is effective and has generally helped my learning. In addition, the app itself is very stable.
The issues I've run into are with the restrictive answers. For example, in one exercise, the clue is 'he is' and TV is looking for the Italian translation of 'è' with no pronoun, marking 'lui è' as incorrect (which it isn't). Then in the next exercise, 'he has' is expected to be 'lui ha' and not 'ha' ( both of which are correct).
Similarly, words that have multiple translations can be marked wrong, even if the translation is correct.
Lastly, singular you and plural you are not labeled well and can be marked wrong if one doesn't give the answer TC expects. For example, 'you eat' could be 'mangi' or 'mangiate' depending on singular or plural, but no hint is given as to what TC is looking for.
Loving it 5/5
This is a great supplement to doulingo! I am loving both!!!
Duolingo quality 4/5
Great app and platform for learning. I did run into quite a few problems with the top Ukrainian decks. Cards would require answers to include words like "Transliteration:" and some cards would have both the Ukrainian and English word on them, then you had to select the answer in Ukrainian, which makes no sense. The app itself is great, but the user decks, for now at least, are pretty rough.
Great app 5/5
I'm trying to learn Italian and this has been very helpful.
Great study tool! 5/5
Perfect for when you have some extra time.
By Riley Mom
Using to learn Italian. These cards purport to be part of Duolingo (also too flawed). In many instances the card definitions are different from the definitions in Duolingo app. Sometimes their answer is wrong. An answer is labeled incorrect if you answer with a contraction, e.g., you're instead of you are. Some of the English spellings marked incorrect are correct. While fixing bugs is good, they would do better spending more time editing and correcting their content. Frustrating waste of time. Memrise is much better.
Surprisingly helpful 4/5
I used this in conjunction with the Duolingo app. Tiny Cards was a great refresher each morning before I started a new lesson in Duolingo. I only wish there was more vocabulary!
By Miley Mz
Combining the flash cards with Duolingo is helpful in memorizing key words and phrases. Merci!
Too confusing 1/5
Flashcards is a good idea, but I don't understand how this app works at all. It was way too confusing to figure out how to use it.
Happy with the results 5/5
The app works as advertised and is a great companion to Duolingo. Of course it can be extended for other areas of learning.
So cute 5/5
It's only been a day but I already love it. It's easy to use, helpful, and so cute. 😝
Tiny Cards enhance my learning of a foreign language 5/5
So Easy and Relaxing to use as a compliment with the learning program Duolingo. Really grateful for this resource of Learning.
Great app 5/5
I never take the time to review, but I am now! I love this app so much because it's a great way for me to study on the go. I am a college student and find this app so helpful when I have quizzes coming up.
Great tool for learning 5/5
I wish these kinds of tools for learning were around when I was a kid.
Found it ! 5/5
I was looking for an app to create my own flashcards to learn new english words but I couldn't find any useful one until I downloaded this amazing app from Duolingo, like the original app this one is very useful with a great UX .
Best Flash Card App 5/5
I've used a couple but this is the only one I really like and I feel works for me. The interface is easy, the sounds and animations are well designed and enhance the experience, and the thought out into the order and how you learn is good. I wish my school would do official flash cards thought luckily the community has created enough of what I need.
So my name is Lisa DiProperzio and no one sees my decks. I have been writing Q&As and no one is responding. Also a Gurkha named Indy made a deck called Its still here. Amd on a card she said the glitch is still here WITH MY PROFILE ONE IT! Please fix this
Great little helper to Duo 5/5
Great little app to add to ones Duolingo regiment. Also has many other flash cards for science, history, and more. Fun to spend a few minutes on a day.
I can't believe this is Free!!!!!!
