    Hey Daniel. Thank you for your great feedback! While the option to import images and audio via csv is not available, I've pass this along to our devs team just in case this might be something they can consider in the future.

    If you have time, you may want to join Brainscape's Discord Community and share your suggestions and feedback over there. Click here for more information. Thanks!

    Please return my money, I paid for 6 months. And I expected to be able to upload my cards, it's several thousand cards with audio and images. But not only can I not upload audio, I can't even upload explanations for the cards. Your import only supports 2 fields. I won't be able to use your system, I was misled by the presence of export and import, which I couldn't fully check because I couldn't check the upload of pictures and audio in the free version. You deceived me, I won't be able to use your product. Give me my money back.

    I think audio and video imports will unlikely be automatable as you can generate huge costs in short time if you try to push thousands of images and audio to their cloud storage (though they could use preprocessing to limit the resolution, size and maybe even total storage per deck).

    It's true that the  import/export is quite a limiting factor and there are also problems with the encoding when importing text in different languages (the only workaround is to use google sheets but it's a workaround which for most people will take a few hours to stumble their way to).

    Through the import/export feature feels like an alpha test given all it's problems, the real problem is that I have not found a better application to handle flashcard functionality. It's a shame Brainscape can't invest a bit to polish the import/export feature but it's the risk they take. For €20 a month I think a competing app could be created in a matter of months for 1/4 the monthly sub price. I probably would have done that myself but the included flash card sets can be pretty amazing. I found a French language one and it's really perfect. 0 effort and 0 additional cost to me so, yeah, although the import export is really not a feature that should be advertised as anything other than alpha (beta if you're feeling generous), the rest of the service can't be beaten. At least I haven't found anything that beats it yet.
