      Memrise vs Anki
      pros, cons and recent comments
      Very difficult to create your own cards with memrise

      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 vs Anki
      pros, cons and recent comments
      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.

      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!
