Read on to learn how Quizlet’s iOS app works and get answers to FAQs!

Finding sets to study

Students and teachers on Quizlet are creating new study sets all the time. This means there’s a good chance you'll be able to find a study set on the topic you’re studying by searching for sets that have already been created.

To search for study sets, tap the magnifying glass at the bottom of the app.

Type the topic that you’re looking to study -- the more specific, the better. For example, you’ll get more relevant results if you search for Diagram of the human heart than Anatomy.

If you find a set you would like to study, but it doesn’t contain all of the terms and definitions you need, you can make a copy of someone else's set, edit it, and save it to your account.

Creating and editing study sets on the Quizlet iOS app

To create a study set on the iOS app, tap the Create icon at the bottom of the screen. Then, tap Create study set.

Enter a set title. Then, enter a term and definition.

Quizlet Plus and Quizlet Teacher subscribers will also see an option to create sets by scanning a document.

Once you have two terms and definitions and have selected a language for your set, you can save it by pressing Done.

The app syncs with the Quizlet website, so you will be able to review your study sets anywhere you have access to the internet (offline studying available for Quizlet Plus and Quizlet Teacher subscribers.)

Studying on iOS devices

To help you study on the go, Flashcards, Learn, Write, Match and Test modes are available on the Quizlet iOS app. Spell, Gravity, and Quizlet Live are not currently supported on the app, but you can use your device’s mobile browser to study with Spell and join games of Quizlet Live.

To get started with a study session, choose a study mode at the top of the set page by tapping on the icon.


You can use Flashcards mode to review terms and definitions or questions and answers on the Quizlet website and mobile apps, just as you would paper flashcards.


Learn mode takes the guesswork out of studying by creating a personalized study plan based on your familiarity with a study set so you can master everything you need to know.

When studying with Learn, Quizlet will prompt you with different types of questions flashcards, multiple choice and written. As you answer questions correctly, you'll start to see harder question types (written, flashcards) more often than easier question types (multiple choice).


Write will prompt you with a question (either a term or definition) and you type the answer. Similar to written questions in Learn mode, Write grades your answers and shows you questions you answered incorrectly throughout a study session to make sure you master your material.


Match is an interactive learning game where you race against the clock to match your terms and definitions as quickly as possible.
