Tough Cookies is a modern flash cards study and management app that runs cross-platform on Windows, Mac, and Linux.

With TC you can create text- and image-based flash cards using a simple editor or Markdown. Files are stored on your local disk and can thus be added to any VCS.

Content can be stored and managed within folders and units. Repetition dates are set according to your study schedule. TC stays out of your way and lets you focus on studying, not on managing your cards.


Spaced Repetition

Dropping flash cards into boxes will automatically schedule future reviews. Spaced repetition is a proven technique to quickly and reliably learn and remember new things.

Simple Editing

TC features a streamlined editor that lets you focus on the content, not on the format. Flash Cards will always look nice and crisp.

Tidy up the Clutter

Flash Cards can be collected inside units, which can be collected inside folders, which can be collected inside other folders. Keeps your stuff tidy.
