Announcing our GRE Vocabulary Flashcard App!

Hi all!

Magoosh_Flashcard_2Last month, we announced our GRE vocabulary flashcards that students could download and print out. At that time, we said we were working on a digital version of these flashcards. Wait no longer…

We’re excited to introduce our new GRE Vocabulary Flashcard app for Android, iOS, and web! Our GRE experts have carefully selected 1,000 of the most common and challenging words on the GRE to focus your vocabulary studying.

Why did we make the GRE flashcard app?

We wanted to make it easier for you to improve your GRE vocabulary. We’ve seen many of you make flashcards as you study and thought we’d help you out by making them for you! Instead of having to go through each individual word in order one at a time, we’ve developed a way for you to practice words you’re uncomfortable with more often.

How should you use our flashcards?

Improve your GRE score with Magoosh.


Start by selecting a deck of words. Check out the image to the right to see what the decks look like on your phone. We have 3 categories of words each with multiple decks:

  • Common: very likely to appear on the GRE
  • Basic: challenging words for many students
  • Advanced: challenging words for nearly all students

Once you’ve selected a deck of words, you can start learning. As you use the app, all you need to do is tell us whether or not you know a word. We’ll take care of the learning process from there, making sure you see the words you don’t know again and again until you master them. And if you’re ever not sure about a word, we recommend saying you don’t know it. Words you don’t know will gradually progress through our stages: from “Learning” to “Reviewing” and ultimately to “Mastered”.


How does our GRE flashcard app help you study?


Our flashcards are adaptive. That means you don’t just cycle through words and hope that rote memorization will do the trick. It won’t. The Magoosh GRE flashcards use an algorithm that employs the Spaced Repetition Technique (SRT) to help you focus on words you’re struggling with the most. As you master a word, you’ll see it less and less frequently until it becomes firmly stored in your memory.

You can take our flashcards anywhere, so all that time on the bus or waiting in line can be turned into productive study time. We sync your progress across devices so you can switch between your Android phone, iPhone, iPad, and computer without missing a word.

How can you get the app?

You can download the app in the Google Play Store of the Apple app store. Just search for Magoosh GRE Flashcards or use the buttons below.

You can also use them on the web at We can’t wait to hear what you think about it. Let us know in the comments!

    I wish the app would let you simply look at all of the lists and build your own vocabulary decks so you can study them. The pre-made decks are fine, but I know most of the words on even the advanced decks, except about 5-10 per deck. I’d rather be able to make my own deck of 50 or so that was actually words I didn’t know so I could review them, than be forced to review a bunch of words that I already know. It feels like a waste of time. That way I wouldn’t have to guess if I wanted the “advanced” or “common” words either. I could just look at everything, check what I didn’t know and have it thrown into its own deck.

    Making my own vocab cards where I have to enter every single definition also seems like a waste of time. It’s just a shame since the cards are pre-loaded that I can’t just move them around to new decks that work for me. Is there anyway you’d consider making a custom deck feature in the app?

  2. Antonio T October 13, 2016 at 2:55 pm #

    An effective variation of the ODD MEN OUT game is to make 3 piles while going through your flashcards. One list for “definitely know”, a second list for “I know this, but I may forget it in 3 days”, and lastly a list for “Don’t know”. Then I stack the flashcards with the difficult words on top. You can then save time by focusing on the “top-most” cards. This variation not only saves time but emphases your study time to learn the harder words.

    • Swaytha November 21, 2017 at 11:59 am #

      How to do this?

  3. Max October 2, 2016 at 6:02 pm #

    Thanks. Pronunciation would be great! With IPA and or sound.

  4. Gaurav March 11, 2016 at 1:14 am #

    Anything on pronunciation yet?? This app looks good but i will only take it if it comes with sound else i have better options..

  5. saketh varma February 20, 2016 at 3:13 am #

    Hi guys, great job with the app there is no better way of learning words than through your app but i feel that there should be a way to reset our progress deck wise so that we can have a fresh start if we it confounding and maybe even customize the app to club all the words into a single pile for practice purpose or something so that we find ourself not confining a particular deck nevertheless awesome work guys thank you…!!!

  6. Keerthana January 27, 2016 at 7:12 am #

    This app is so great I wanted it on my phone. Then I realized you do have mobile apps. Then I realized you don’t have it for windows phones. :/ This app seriously beats every vocab flashcards app available for windows phone.
    Also, I notice you mentioned “stay tuned for the windows phone app” in 2013 and its still not out? It would be incredibly useful for me if you released the app for windows phones. Looking forward to it! 🙂

  7. Biplav January 20, 2016 at 7:18 am #

    Great job man.. Just 30 minutes on a daily basis translated into a huge vocabulary for me..
    One small request, could you please make the flashcard app for windows phone. Please.

      Glad the app has been so helpful, Biplav! We don’t have plans to make a version for Windows phones yet, but we always take note of what people are asking for 🙂

  8. Ethan October 31, 2015 at 7:47 pm #

    I second the desire to be able to reset individual decks, instead of all of the decks at once!

  9. Roger Ganga September 27, 2015 at 6:56 am #

    Hey how can I reset my magoosh flashcards?

  10. Shreyas September 24, 2015 at 11:42 pm #

    There is a bug. Sync problem.

    I use the app on android. The app on its own works fine. When i login and check flashcards online all the review words are added to mastered words. Web to app sync is correct, but app to web sync has a bug. For this reason i use web flashcards on all devices.

    This is just a minor bug. I love this app very much.

    • Jessica Wan
      Jessica Wan September 25, 2015 at 4:50 pm #

      Hi Shreyas!

      Thanks for letting us know about this bug. I’ve alerted our engineering team and they’ll take a look. We’re glad you love the app! 🙂


  11. Naina August 16, 2015 at 6:03 am #

    Great app! really helpful but it would be more helpful if i can view all the words in a deck as a list once i’m done with it so that i need not revise the words which i already knew in order to save time

    • Jessica Wan
      Jessica Wan August 17, 2015 at 11:14 am #

    App is great but make for windows store also

  14. Vicky June 18, 2015 at 12:22 pm #

    I love the app! It makes learning vocab enjoyable and fun. Thank you for creating a great resource. The only thing I would appreciate is a list of the vocab in each category. After going through the deck, I just want to review all the words all at once and it’s hard to do with the randomized algorithm of the app. Would Magoosh be kind enough to publish this on their website?:)

    please bring app In the windowsphone

  17. Kuncham Harish September 16, 2014 at 4:31 am #

    Are these words on flashcards enough for a DECENT VERBAL score ??

    • Kevin Rocci
      Kevin September 17, 2014 at 3:57 pm #

      This is not an easy question to answer. Whether or not our flashcards are enough for you depends entirely on your starting vocabulary–the GRE can include many, many other words than what is in our list (or any list) of GRE vocabulary, which is why reading extensively is VERY important no matter what level your vocabulary is at 🙂 There’s no specific number of words you have to learn in order to reach a specific score. In part, the GRE tests English vocab in general, not just “GRE words,” and even then, there’s more involved!

  18. rajat agarwal September 5, 2014 at 11:19 am #

    App should also be available for windowsphone.

  19. raghu August 4, 2014 at 9:03 pm #

    please make this app available for windows phone too…

  20. Ronnie July 10, 2014 at 8:24 am #

    I beg you to develop a windows phone app for the GRE Vocabulary Flash Card. Please Please Please…

  21. Ananth July 6, 2014 at 2:06 pm #

    Hey Sharat,
    I construe the GRE Vocab app as an efficacious tool to learn words for GRE and I thank you guys for that.

    But, one thing which I have to underscore is that when it comes to revising the words, I find myself looking at several words again and again but some are not frequent, appearing only once or twice. This actually prolongs the time spent on revising. Is there something that could be done for this, perhaps an option to skip words(once mastered probably), if this issue is entirely based on the algorithm?

    • Jenna July 16, 2014 at 2:40 am #

      The app is very useful. But would it be possible to point out the word roots for each word on the flashcards?

      • Sharat Akasapu
        Sharat July 16, 2014 at 9:43 am #

        Thanks for the feedback, Jenna! We’re not working on that right now but I’ll forward it to the team :).

        Keep the feedback coming!

  22. Dragos May 24, 2014 at 7:31 pm #

    I love the app. It’s well done and works great on both my phone and my tablet. I have one feature request though. Could you allow the user to mark/flag a word which would automatically include that word in a custom deck? That way I could keep track of the words I consider to be most difficult. Thanks!

    • Sharat Akasapu
      Sharat May 28, 2014 at 11:38 am #

      Thank you for your feedback! We don’t currently have a way to flag a word, but I think it’s a great idea!

      We’re not working on that at the moment, but I’ll pitch it to the team and see what they think.

      We really appreciate hearing from our users about what would make Magoosh the best possible experience for them. If you think of anything else like this in your studies, feel free to send us a note!

  30. Vurhan October 29, 2013 at 4:23 pm #

    Is it possible to reset our progress? Because when I accidentally click to “I knew this word” option for once there is no way for me to see that word again. I would like to remove some words from that category or reset my progress to start from scratch. Is there any option for this. I couldnt find a way to do this.

    Many thanks for this great app!

    • Sharat Akasapu
      sharat October 29, 2013 at 5:35 pm #

      Unfortunately you can’t reset the answers in the flashcard deck right now. But we’re working on this and we’ll be sure to let you know when you can do it! In the meantime, I would recommend that you log out of the app and then create a new account…this will enable you to effectively start over.

      Thanks for the feedback!

  31. Aayush October 16, 2013 at 1:51 pm #

    Absolutely brilliant. Effective, extensive, fun and simple. Well done, guys! And yes, the pronunciation bit that everyone is requesting is a must add.

  32. Shefali October 15, 2013 at 12:04 pm #

    It would be nice to have a feature where you can review across multiple decks, after you’ve mastered all the words. I feel like it would help me greatly to assess my knowledge if I could pick, for example, 2 decks, as a review process once I’ve completed them. That clubbed with the other suggestion of setting frequency of repetition during review it would make it an unbeatable vocabulary app according to me.

    • Sharat Akasapu
      sharat October 15, 2013 at 12:59 pm #

      Hi Shefali– thanks for your feedback! We’re talking about what to include next. We’ll be sure to discuss this as part of this. Happy studying!

  33. Alex September 10, 2013 at 7:19 pm #

    The app has been very helpful for learning new words. Thank you for putting it together.

    A suggestion for the next release – while the app is great for learning, I’m finding it too time consuming word maintenance. It would be cool to adjust the repetition frequency for a quick review through each deck. It would also be helpful to have a custom deck where one could pin/unpin words.

    • Sharat Akasapu
      sharat September 11, 2013 at 10:16 am #

      Thanks for the feedback, Alex! We’ll add this to the list of features that we’re discussing!

  34. Andres September 8, 2013 at 11:56 pm #

    I absolutely love this app!! Best GRE study app that I have tested as far as effectiveness. My one and only wish is that it would have a pronunciation guide. I try to use new words in my own vocabulary to enforce them but am constantly looking to google for that part of my lessons. Other than that great job guys!

  35. Nafiz September 6, 2013 at 10:14 am #

    Hi guys,

    I wanted to provide some latest feedback as I have been using the app for quite some time now (I have gotten through all the “common words” part). After finishing a section, when returning to it after a few days for a revision, it is tough to understand whether I have gone through all the words of that section. I am implying that I am not explicitly getting the sign that I have gone through all 50 words of a section or some words are yet to come.

    This is only a problem when I am revising a section. My suggestion would be to add a explicit list of words or some kind of procedure where a user is getting to know that he has gone through all the words of a certain section when revising.

    Other than that, again, great App, great work, many many thanx for your hard work and generosity 🙂 .


    • Sharat Akasapu
      sharat September 7, 2013 at 8:19 am #

      Hi Nafiz– thanks for the feedback! We have included a status bars (mastered, learned, and reviewed) that indicate the progress you have made within each deck. We included this to help our students get a sense of their progress…but it sounds like you didn’t find this helpful?

      • Nafiz September 7, 2013 at 8:33 am #

        Hi Sharat,

        Thanx for the reply.

        Yes, I am finding the bars helpful when I am encountering a section for the first time. What I was saying is , when I return to a section for revision I have already mastered the 50 words and the Mastered bar is already full there. Hence, while going through the words for revision, I am not realizing if I have gone through all the words or some are still to come. You got my point ?


        • Sharat Akasapu
          sharat September 7, 2013 at 8:35 am #

          I understand now…thanks for clarifying :). We’re discussing potential new features to include in the app. I’ll be sure we discuss this issue as well. Thanks again!

  36. Vindhya September 6, 2013 at 9:21 am #

  40. Anil August 27, 2013 at 1:06 am #

    Hi Sharat,

    The flashcard app is great, would like to give a few suggestions for the same :-

    1. Can you plz include the related pictures / cartoons to explain the given word. It becomes easy to remember a word using pictures.
    2. Use of mnemonics also helps a lot in remembering a word.
    3. Antonyms and synonyms can also be included , as this will widen our vocabulary.
    4. Its also a good idea if there is a voice recording for pronouncing and explaining the words, making the application more like “talking flashcards”.
    5. Make the app for IELTS and TOEFL as well.

    Its also great if word roots are also introduced in flashcards. word roots also helps in learning large number of words.


    • Sharat Akasapu
      sharat August 27, 2013 at 9:27 am #

      Hi Anil– thanks for the feedback! We are considering many of these ideas for our next version of our flashcard app so it’s great to hear that you want them. I will definitely let you know when we release it…in the meantime, happy studying!

  41. Namrata August 26, 2013 at 3:53 pm #

    I recently began using the GRE Flashcards mobile app from Magoosh and cannot sufficiently illustrate the many ways in which it has helped me.

    The great points about this app are –
    a) It’s a huge enough database of words for me 😀
    b) Very easy to use
    c) If you’re honest to yourself, a great way to learn/re-learn (I like the “I didn’t know this” option ! Instead of just flipping through an endless list)
    d) Anytime, anywhere availability – and no hefty stack of cards!
    e) The cheer one feels when they encounter the very same words on practice questions (and then heave a sigh of relief because you could figure out the meaning/context 🙂 )

    Feedback –
    a) Would have loved to see pronunciation too since most of the words are new to students preparing for the GRE – we have no clue how to utter that word in public 😀

    That being said, all in all, it’s a fantastic job by Team Magoosh!

    Big thank you!

    First up, let me say you guys have done a very good job with the app. I was really looking forward to it.

    I wanted to know the ~1000 words on this app also include words from the “Magoosh GRE eBook” and the “GRE Vocabulary Flashcards” eBooks that you had previously posted.

    I have my GRE in a little over 2 weeks, was thinking of sticking to this app and not looking into any other material.

      Hi Ritu– thanks for the feedback and no problem! We’re glad you like it!

    Thanks for this great app. Should this be used in conjunction with Magoosh’s vocabulary E book? Is there 100% overlap between the two sources or can some words be found in one but not in the other? Also, how does this compare to Barron’s 1100 words book? Just trying to decide how to prioritize these resources- I take the test in 5 weeks. Thanks!

      Hi James– good question! Our ebook has ~300 words while our app has ~1000 words so our app contains words that are in the ebook.

      I’m not sure what the exact overlap is between our vocabulary app and Barron’s. I would say that our GRE experts spent quite a bit of time carefully selecting the words in our app so that our students would be able to spend their study time in the most efficient and effective way. Hope this helps!

    Best app out there. Too bad only android/ios users can take advantage of its portability. Kindle, windows phone version should follow soon. Thanks guys.

    Great so far! The adaptive review and catagories mimic how I use physical cards perfectly. A few thoughts:
    – Being dyslexic I need a pronunciation key or an audio option. This makes a big difference in helping words ‘stick’. Also I imagine non-native English speakers would be helped by this.
    – It would be great to have an option to create an automated custom deck of the words from all categories that were repeated the most.
    – I’d love decks for math concepts! I created my own physical set but would greatly benefit from a more methodical approach.

      Hi Kelly– thanks for the suggestions and feedback! We are going to continue working on our app and your comments are super helpful. Keep them coming 🙂

  54. Nafiz August 14, 2013 at 6:27 am #

    Hi guys,

    Many many thanx for your brilliant app. I was just confused about from the many word lists out there, which ones should I read. Now, I am definitely going for this one. 🙂

    I have just one suggestion if you can do it please. Please increase the number of example sentences from 1 to 3. The way I read is, I first read the example sentence then try to conjecture the meaning of the word from the context and then see the meaning. If there are more than one example it really increases the chance to remain in memory. Also, it becomes more enjoyable 🙂

    But, many many thanx again. Great work.

      Hi Nafiz– that’s exactly why we made the app! We’re glad you’re finding it helpful. Thanks for the feedback. We’re continuing to work on the app and suggestions are very helpful…keep them coming!

    I love the convenience and setup of the flashcard app. Thank you for taking the time to develop it! It makes studying vocab much easier if you don’t have to drag around multiple sets of flashcards. One suggestion that I think would take this app to a new level is the option to add your own decks. Per Magoosh’s suggestions – oftentimes I find myself writing down unfamiliar words I come upon – usually sporadically in random notebooks. It would be great if I could just whip out my app and add cards to a custom deck. Otherwise 5 stars! Thanks!

    Hi ,

    Great app guys. The USP being the source of words:Magoosh. Until now i had been using ankidroid which although had really cool adaptive features , lacked a reliable source of vocab. I had to export magoosh words from and then import them on my phone This app would surely serve my purpose. I would like to mention one point though , it happens very frequently that a user incorrectly selects whether he knew the word or not while reviewing a card. Presently , i don’t see any option to undo such an error , i hope you will include it in your future releases.

      Hi Anirudh– thanks for the note! This is one of the reasons we made this app for our students…so it would be easier for them to study words.

      Thanks for your feedback on the “undo” feature as well. We will continue to work on our app 🙂

    Hello Sharat,

    Brilliant Stuff. I`m able to see my “suggestion in action”. Already gave a five star rating in the Playstore. Any way to give 6 stars there ?? Let me know 🙂

      Thanks for the feedback, Siddharth! We spent quite some time selecting and then categorizing each of the words you find in our app so I’m glad you find it useful!

  61. Jordan August 13, 2013 at 10:09 am #

    Thanks for providing these. I have been using them the past few weeks and am amazed how GRE vocabulary studying went from overwhelming to completely manageable!

      This is exactly what we were hoping for, Jordan! Since the past few weeks, we’ve spent time carefully selecting and adding even more words that you’ll find on the GRE. We hope you continue to find the app useful as you study for the GRE!
