About Intelligent Flashcards:
The app also contains an Intelligent Wordlist Maker and Intelligent Flashcard system. The algorithm helps you to quickly and efficiently pick only the words you don’t know for study in the flashcard system. Rather than force you to go through the entire list at once, the system guides you through the list by frequency bands, allowing you to add words little by little, just as you need them or when you have time. Based on the well documented science of “spaced-repetition”, it systematically and efficiently helps you to review the words several times over a period of a month, giving you extra time with the words that are giving you difficulty.
