SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 9, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Quizlet, the largest user-generated consumer learning platform in the US, announced new features today that will make studying easier and more fun as students begin to prepare for the first test days of the school year.
Better grades are just a swipe away thanks to swipe flashcards on Quizlet's free iOS and Android apps.

Only available on Quizlet's mobile apps, swipe flashcards are helping students learn more content more quickly. Check out how the swipe studying feature works here.
Creating custom study sets on Quizlet is now easier and more efficient thanks to new advanced content creation features.

New rich text formatting options allow users to highlight main ideas, underline key concepts and bold important terms to study with more focus. These advanced features help break down dense information, emphasize important material and better organize comprehensive study sets. Smart scanning and rich text content creation features are available to Quizlet Plus and Quizlet Teacher subscribers.
