Quiz Shuffling I have observed that when I take the quiz for my deck, the order in which I learned them does not change. As I keep taking these quizzes, I have further observed that I recall the first set and last set of words extraordinary better than the middle set. This phenomenon is termed, 'the serial position effect' in psychology. I would suggest a shuffling algorithm for taking a quiz, to engage the brain areas responsible for memory construction and recollection. Doing so, will promote better retention of words.
Too Little Time to Answer I love all kinds of flash cards... And I like preparing unique decks. I think this app probably deserves a 3, but I'm very new at this. So far I have not found a way to make up my own decks. The answers to choose from are VERY long and I barely have time to read through them before I have to make a choice.
Could be better It sucks that you can't make your owns cards without having it to be an ACTUAL word. I was going to use this for my Emergency Medical Responder Acronyms but it only had to be words in the dictionary so that really sucked. Other than that it does help for like History or SAT words.
Trustworthy Developers Great for learning as definitions are succinct and timed quizzes test knowledge over cheating skills. Excellent design with reference to old school note-cards that never go out of style. The slider to progress through a pack of cards seems awkward at first unless it is a built in safety for the app's integrity - which in that case it just takes some time to get used to. Each deck is just the right amount for learning a group of definitions.
Good app. The only problem I have with it is I had several books with hundreds of words set up, got a new phone and can't remember my password! All gone now because there is no way to retrieve it. Why do I need a freakin password anyway? !
Disappointed There should be an option to add mathematics flash cards as well. It's upsetting that words that I am using to increase my high schooler's vocabulary, are not even found. Some definitions ate too vague for my liking. Shenanigans can not be found. Technically, I can understand why, but I would still like to have those options available.
