Very much so. Especially in software form, like Anki, which incorporates spaced repetition, which optimizes the review schedule.

I do not believe much in flash cards but I still use Anki a lot because they will list and order your images in the browser and because searches are quick, which simplify editing. It is also easy to mark your cards and filter them. I just wished the exported file could be opened in Words.

Thanks for that, Josh.

I just don't know how safe it is to download on my phone and since I don't want to take any chance with it, I will pass on this one.

I think that the plugins require the desktop version of the software.

That's a bit like asking how beneficial paper is in memorizing... it depends on how you use it!

Review is essential if you want to keep something in your memory, and flashcards can help with that, but the cards are just paper (or virtual paper).... you can put good content on them, or bad. You can make good useful flashcards, or poorly made, almost useless ones.
