Making a simple yet highly relevant entry into the Business category of the App Store is Essential Finance (Free!) for iPhone and iPad, which includes a collection of essential finance terminology to help you learn them and speak to your clients with greater confidence.
I really like the idea of using flashcards for learning, especially in the context of iOS apps, because they are applicable to just about every context and field of study; finance and business are certainly no exceptions to this rule!
This is a simple little app that has been designed to help you easily and efficiently learn a variety of basic financial words and terms through the medium of flashcards, and on offer are more than 100 different flashcards for you to work through.
If you’ve heard a specific word or phrase through the day and you’re not sure what it means but are too embarrassed to ask someone then you’ll be pleased to know that you can just use the integrated search facility to find the terms you need in seconds flat.

"Fave" and "Ignore" Cards Based On What You've Learnt
Essential Finance (Free!) also includes a Faves Deck to which you can add your most frequently used cards until you’ve learnt them; this is ideal for those terms that you keep getting confused about and need to keep referring to in order to remind yourself.
What’s more, the Ignore Deck can be used to hide cards that you’ve already learnt, and there is also a handy feature for shuffling the flashcards so that you can test your knowledge in a more randomized manner.
