Today we release a bugfix version to address two bugs (thanks to our users for reporting them!):
After a longer pause we are back with an exciting new release, addressing many of our user’s needs:
The Flashcards ToGo app allows you to directly create new flashcards within the app on your phone. For entering many cards - and when you have access to a computer with a normal keyboard - this may not be the most efficient way, as typing on your phone may be rather slow…
So what are the alternatives to that?
…can I still use Flashcards ToGo? For example to memorize biology terms?
Yes, you can!
Although the standard course configuration speaks of a “source” and “target”, and offers you some default “languages” to choose for source and target, you can as well define your own language or topic (like “biology”) or use generic topics like “front” and “back” to represent the front and back side of your cards.
To define a new language/topic:
After you have defined a language/topic in this way, you can choose this language/topic in any of your courses as either the source or the target.
Note: In one of the next versions we will provide generic “front” and “back” default languages/icons so you can easily name your course “Physics”, and choose the front and back languages as your default icons, see this proposal on our uservoice forum and vote for it if it’s important for you!
(Another option would be to offer an option to create courses with one icon only, where the icon represents the subject, e.g. Biology. Please create another proposal on our uservoice site if you want that feature!)
Since version 1.5 a learning session can be configured very flexible with the following parameters:
Please note that the configuration is persisted, so the next time you start a learning session it remembers your last settings.
Prior to version 1.5 Flashcards ToGo did not deal well with the case of importing e.g. 200 cards: All of them were due immediately, but you cannot memorize 200 facts at once.
To address this, in version 1.5 a lifecycle for cards was introduced consisting of four states:
Thus, the typical lifecycle of a card would be TODO (as long as one side is missing) => NEW => ACTIVE => KNOWN.
If you hit any issues, please let us know (see the Feedback page for details).
I’m excited to announce two new events:
The following permissions are required by the app and will be listed when installing it:
