About this app

The Mnemosyne software resembles a traditional flash-card program to help you memorise question/answer pairs, but with an important twist: it uses a sophisticated algorithm to schedule the best time for a card to come up for review. Difficult cards that you tend to forget quickly will be scheduled more often, while Mnemosyne won't waste your time on things you remember well.

IMPORTANT: this is not stand-alone software, but requires the desktop client from mnemosyne-proj.org to create cards. Instructions on how to set up the sync server can be found here: http://mnemosyne-proj.org/help/syncing

For more details on Android specific issues, see here: http://mnemosyne-proj.org/help/android-client

PLEASE DO NOT USE THE REVIEWS FOR SUPPORT REQUESTS, but use https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/mnemosyne-proj-users, as we read that more often than the review comments on Google play.

SAMSUNG S9 USERS, if you don't see the menu, turn ofF full screen support for Mnemosyne (see step 7 here https://videotron.tmtx.ca/en/topic/samsung_galaxys9/using_full_screen_mode.html)

Great potential, but it's simply not user friendly. I finally got the database on my phone after numerous failed attempts at syncing from the computer... You still have basic access and cannot go through tiered subject cards... In other words, it'll appear in order and you cannot skip to other subjects. Great idea and great potential though

In the desktop app, you can use "deactivate cards" and then "save this set for later use". These sets can then be used in the Android app as well. I guess this is what you want. If you have tips for making the sync instructions better, please let them know! You can get in touch e.g. through our google groups.

Edited: updated from * to ***: There were serious issues with syncing, that somehow resolved themselves by doing then on different router. Also, file migration is possible, as described in developers reply. The mobile version is just the client, with only basic options. No changes to decks can be done from it, so new words can't be added, or the old words edited over mobile.Any changes to decks have to be done on PC and then synced to mobile. If you want mobile tool only, this is not for you.

Of course you can just manually copy default.db back and forth if that is what you want :-) Don't hesitate to get in touch with us at https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/mnemosyne-proj-users , the reviews are not suited to do customer support.

Can't do much in phone except syncing. Android app is not upto to the expected level when compared with desktop version. This app is worse when compared to other flash card apps. Please improve UI & Functionality of the app. Your desktop version is a beast.

What's new

- Target Android X
- Fix swipe down from top not working on some Samsung devices
- Update to latest version of libmnemosyne, faster startup for large databases

IMPORTANT: because of Google's new policies, we need to store your database in a different place, so you could need to resync from scratch.
