Got questions? We've got answers.

When you sign in using Facebook sign in, Google sign in, or Apple sign in, the app uses your credentials from those platforms to grant access. If you have signed up manually (by using an email address and password that you created), you can change your password by accessing your profile or by clicking the FORGOT PASSWORD link on the login screen.

If you originally signed up using Facebook Login, this is no longer supported. You can reset your password using the "forgot password" link on the login screen. Just be sure to use the same email address you use for Facebook. If this doesn't work, please reach out so we can change your login credentials.

If you need to reset your password, click the "forgot password" link on the login screen. 

If you are trying to login using your username/password from one of my online programs, you'll need to create a profile that's just for the app...they're not the same 🙂

There are three ways to upgrade your account and gain access to over 6,000 flashcards and the ability to repeat missed questions.

  • Click on any slide deck that has a lock icon
  • Click on UPGRADE in the side menu
  • Click on UPGRADE from the score screen

Subscriptions are managed through the Google Play Store and your Apple subscriptions (go to settings, click on your name, then subscriptions). If you wish to fully delete your account, you can do that from your profile inside the app.

Sorry, we don’t have that functionality at this time…but hope to add it in a future update. If you would like to sign up for the annual plan, simply cancel the account and sign up again under the annual plan when your current billing period ends.

We do not provide refunds since the digital item is provided immediately and you can preview the app by using the lite version. Of course, you can cancel at any time by accessing your profile from the side menu.

The free version of the app includes a sample of cards in each category. The premium version is available through a low monthly subscription or annual subscription which grants you access to all cards in all categories. The premium version also saves your quiz results so you can see where you need to focus your efforts and enables you to repeat missed cards.

The cards will advance on their own after you select “GOT IT” or “MISSED IT.” A simple swipe left or right will also advance you forward to the next card or take you back to the previous card. 

You can view the cards in offline mode, but you’ll need an internet connection in order to select GOT IT or MISSED IT.

Logging in each time protects your information and keeps your account secure. 

If your payment fails, you’ll retain access to the app, but will not have access to premium cards or functions. Once your payment is up-to-date, you will regain access to the premium version.
