Kindle Flashcard Creator

Kindle Dictionary Definition Lookup

(English Only)

The inbuilt flash card app for the Kindle isn't the best. There's no effective learning mechanism. No recall testing. No spaced repetition.

Therefore you need some flashcards, compatible with popular smart flashcard platforms, such as Anki.

Use this website to parse your unknown words into flashcards and download them for your favourite flashcard platform.
