Hear2Rise is an innovative flashcard app. Unlike other apps that incorporate images and text, Hear2Rise focuses exclusively on audio. This simple approach yields powerful results, making the tasks of creating, using, and sharing cards simple beyond compare.

Want to learn Spanish? Just dictate the Spanish words and corresponding translation into the app, one after the other, using our simple UI. Already know Spanish and want to learn French? Just do the same thing, dictate the Spanish word followed by the French translation. Want to learn the multiplication table? Again, dictate your challenge and the corresponding response, and that's it. You could create 20 cards in less than a minute.

Spell Prep is a spelling learning game for children, containing three rounds and a quiz. When you get all the correct words, you will get stickers that can be customized. The app has hundreds of stickers for kids and word lists with grades. The higher the grade, the harder the word will be.
