StudyBlue has always been one of my favorite online flashcard services, especially since it added integration with Evernote. StudyBlue’s mobile app was a great, distraction-free way to absorb the cards after I created them on my computer, and now, the company has added the long-overdue ability to create new cards directly on your phone.

Beyond the obvious added convenience, using a phone has its own advantages. If you own an iPhone 4S or Android device, you can use the built-in dictation software to create new flashcards verbally, which probably improves your recall as well. You can also take advantage of your phone’s camera to create visual flashcards, as seen in the video below.

StudyBlue is free, and awesome. Go check out their site to sign up, and then grab the iOS or Android app.
