Perfect replacement for paper I was starting to learn Japanese and using paper flashcards to test myself on vocabulary. I ran out of cards and then discovered this app which enables me to do everything I was doing with the cards and even more. I love how it tracks what you got right or wrong and can even differentiate between a 'strong' correct (I've definitely remembered) and a weaker correct (I had to think about it). It integrates with some online tools I haven't tried, and can even include pictures and audio as you want it.
When it comes to flash cards and language learning your best friend is spaced repetition but the spaced repetition with this app was way too confusing to set up and the default settings were useless. A lot of work was put into this app but needs to be revised and simplified
Language is not my game to play, I've always been of the mind that paper flashcards were the gateway to new language. Yet, one semester into Hebrew and there were rogue flashcards in my car, jacket pockets, book bag, and scattered about my office. This app does an amazing job of determining which words come easy and those I need to work on. Its also a great way to learn new words: I typically start with the multiple choice option, then move to the "spelling" feature (going from more easy to more challenging). The app allows you to break large "decks" (say 100 or so words) into smaller intervals of cards (I use 10 card intervals.) As you move through the intervals, it keeps the more challenging words and replaces learned words with new cards. It has worked incredibly well for Hebrew: I use the google handwriting keyboard to "write in" the Hebrew words en lieu of learning the Hebrew keyboard. It also records your pronunciation of the words which helps with learning words without vowel marks. The features are endless: on the one hand, it takes some time to really navigate through the maze of settings (the help feature is handy and well organized), on the other, you can modify the app to work in whatever way suites your needs. Ultimately, the strongest feature of the app is its use of varied approaches to learning and memorization. In other words, it does more just flipping virtual cards.
Love: Best in class, rich in features period. Hate: App UI is really need to be redesign. Import instruction guide is convoluted and may not 100% accurate. If you just want simple flashcards, then is may OK. But when you want to make serious flashcards with multiple answers and import quiz in Excel format from PC, it may take couple hours to guess how it works.
Amazing app. You can tell it is a labour of love by someone who uses it - as a language student it's everything I need (and then some - the level of functionality is bewildering). Import/update from Google Drive is fantastic - so easy to maintain my master list on a computer and easily pull updates through to the deck. Absolutely worth the modest price for great functionality and no ads.
I love it since 7 years I changed from iPhone to Samsung Note 3 and I bought the app again for android. This app is perfect. Thank you dear developer (and best regards from Prof. Dr. Bingo)
