      NameLessGO Anki >>> Quizlet and Brainscape + It is free, open source, active community, a lot of add-ons -> customization. - It is hard to use without a guide-> have to watch/read guide content. OBS: AnkiApp is not part of Anki (only AnkiWeb, AnkiMobile, AnkiDroid)

    1. Have fun while learning a foreign language with Memrise. The more you enjoy learning, the more (and quicker) your skills will develop. This is why entertainment mixed with real-life, relevant content is at the very core of the Memrise language learning experience.

      Memrise used to be an efficient SRS for self-created flashcard decks, now it's mostly worthless unless you pay a monthly fee, which a popup prompts you to do every 3 minutes or so.

      Quizlet does not used a spaced repetition system, which is the primary feature of Anki.

      Web interface is oversized, cumbersome, and not as powerful. Large decks will freeze on webpages easily.

      nicklucianocorona It's way better than Anki. Simpler and more intuitive interface and way more efficient in creating cards from notes. IMO, it fully replaces Anki.

      ldthorne96foo It's much easier to create new cards, the app itself is much cleaner. Just signed up for the paid version to get the cloud syncing between my home and work computers, and it's worked seamlessly so far! 10/10 recommend!

      Mnemosyne (named for the Greek goddess of memory, Mnemosyne) is spaced repetition software developed from 2003 until the present. The software is similar to SuperMemo, commercial software developed by Piotr Wozniak.
      Mnemosyne vs Anki opinions
      Almost everyone thinks Mnemosyne is a great alternative to Anki.
      Buster_Blue Very similar in look and function, to Anki. Mnemosyne isn't as customizable, but it's easier on beginners.

      SuperMemo (from "Super Memory") is a learning method and software package developed by SuperMemo World in Poland from 1985 to the present.
      Almost everyone thinks SuperMemo is a great alternative to Anki.
    5. Learning with Texts (LWT) is a free tool for Language Learning by reading & listening to texts, saving & reviewing vocab. Prerequisites are an installed LAMP/WAMP/MAMP (local web server & database) software and a modern web browser.
      This alternative is disputed. Learning with Texts is still a legitimate alternative to Anki, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
