Quizlet and ended support for Flashcards Deluxe. Below is information on:

Transfering Flashcards from Quizlet to Flashcards Deluxe


You can still transfer text-only flashcards from Quizlet:
  1. At quizlet.com, view the set you want to transfer
  2. Tap the round blue button with 3 dots ... (near the top under the set name)
  3. Export
  4. Click "Copy Text"
    You can now paste into a spreadsheet... or into our website and transfer using the steps below:
  5. Go to OrangeOrApple.com and click "Upload" at top-right
  6. Enter a deck code (you create; used to find your flashcards)
  7. Enter a deck name
  8. Paste your copied text into the "Flashcard Text" box
  9. Click "Upload Flashcards"
  10. In Flashcards Deluxe, tap + (add deck), Private Deck, and enter your Deck Code, Download"


Optional: If your flashcards have new-lines within a side, Quizlet's default export format won't work correctly. (A single card will become multiple cards.) Below are steps to handle this using Microsoft Word:
  1. In Quizlet, use the following export options:
    • Between term and definition: Tab
    • Between rows: ~ (or another character you ar not using)
  2. Paste into Word
  3. Find-Replace (ctrl-h). We'll convert new-lines within a side to | :
    • Find: ^p
    • Replace: |
    • Replace All
  4. Find-Replace (ctrl-h). We'll fix separators between cards:
    • Find: ~ (what you used to export)
    • Replace: ^p
    • Replace All

Moving already downloaded flashcards from Quizlet to Dropbox or Google Drive


If you used to maintain your flashcards on Quizlet, consider moving them to either Dropbox or Google Drive. You can create a free Dropbox account at dropbox.com or a Google account at drive.google.com if you don't have one.

Creating and maintaining flashcards will then happen in a spreadsheet instead of at Quizlet.com.

Dropbox: ideal if you want to use Excel to enter your flashcards
Google Drive: ideal if you want to use an online spreadsheet to enter flashcards


To Export Flashcards to Dropbox or Google Drive:

  1. Tap "Edit" then tap deck to export
    • Note the "Deck Code" here. This is a link to the online source data. If this starts with "Q:" (for Quizlet), this will be updated to either "D:" or "G:" after exporting to Dropbox or Google Drive.
  2. Tap "Export / Share"
  3. Tap either "Dropbox" or "Google Drive"
  4. Turn on "Export Media Files" (if appropriate) and "Export Statistics" (optional). If exporting to Dropbox, also change the format to "Excel" (recommended). Export.
    • Exporting statistics is a good idea as a backup, but it will also clutter your spreadsheet, and when updating from Dropbox/Google Drive to the app, you'll be asked which statistics to keep (what's in the app or what's in Dropbox/Google Drive).

Finding your flashcards in Dropbox or Google Drive
  • Dropbox:   /Dropbox/Apps/Flashcards Deluxe/   or   /Dropbox/Flashcards Deluxe/
    Google:     /Flashcards Deluxe/

Updating from Dropbox/Google Drive to Flashcards Deluxe
  • You can now edit your flashcards by editing the Excel file in Dropbox or the spreadsheet in Google Drive. After making changes there, you'll want to update the flashcards in the app. To do so, tap "Edit" at main Decks screen, tap deck to update, then "Download / Update".
