Anki

Version: 2.0.0 || Release Date: 2012-10-26 || License: GPL Developer: Damien Elmes | App Owner: faledrol

Anki is a program designed to help you remember facts (such as words and phrases in a foreign language) as easily, quickly and efficiently as possible. To do this, it tracks how well you remember each fact, and uses that information to optimally schedule review times. With a minimal amount of effort, you can greatly increase the amount of material you remember, making study more productive, and more fun.

Anki is based on a theory called spaced repetition. In simple terms, it means that each time you review some material, you should wait longer than last time before reviewing it again. This maximizes the time spent studying difficult material and minimizes the time spent reviewing things you already know. The concept is simple, but the vast majority of memory trainers and flashcard programs out there either avoid the concept all together, or implement inflexible and suboptimal methods that were originally designed for pen and paper.

While Anki can be used for studying anything, it also ships with special features designed to make studying Japanese and English easier: integrated dictionary lookups, missing kanji reports, and more. Sample decks are also provided for Russian.

really good little app. I am enjoying using it.

It's now at the top of my list for Chinese study applications - the Pinyin Toolkit combined with Anki is an absolute killer, and it seems like the developer is really responsive and constantly working on updates which is really nice to see.

Seems to have a good community around the app as well.

Cheers, and keep up the good work!

Great program. I've been using it for months in classes and it's a fantastic way to retain information for tests and after the course is complete.

This is a great App, works very well and really helps to work. The setup of a new card set is very easy once you get the concept around the interface and it really helps learning faster.

and as Alf says, share your own!

Looking nice. If only it didn't have the same name as my brother's divorced wife... : / Either she, or this application will have to change their name.

Looks interesting, would love to see a lot more languages supported (let's show them how open source software is done!)
