Futaba is a flexible, fun app that can be used by individuals or groups of up to 4 per device. Currently, it is available as a free version and a “classroom” edition, priced at £4.99.
Futaba basically makes flashcard learning into a game. The free version comes with some good sets for younger learners, such as sounds and number bonds to ten, but it is somewhat American. The paid version allows you to make up your own sets, and it is here that the app really comes into its own – you can use your own audio, images and text to revise any topic. I have used this with upper primary very successfully and I could see it working well in secondary too, for anything that needs to be memorised – vocabulary, equations etc.
If you visit the publisher’s website, you can get much more information, including a helpful 10-minute “how to” video.
