Genius helps you memorize things. Genius organizes your information and carefully chooses questions using an intelligent "spaced repetition" method that’s based on your past performance. It performs fuzzy answer checking and even highlights errors visually.
Use Genius to study vocabulary words, foreign language phrases, historical events, religious texts, legal definitions, formal speeches, marketing points—anything you need to memorize!

This is GREAT software, simple, well designed, and wicked effective. I use(d) this in my Anthropology, Scientific History, and other concept and detail intensive classes in combination with OmniOutliner. Typing up lectures in Omni and then creating Qs in Genius from those notes played a large part in my acing my toughest college courses. AWESOME.

Quite good, though it feels... incomplete.
I should mention I have yet to find a flash-card program that I like, though.

this is now stable - it was updated on 2006-08-28 and now supports intel macs. Incidentally - I've just put up a genius file for HTML 4.01 here:

stable indeed. however, the text file import doesn't like UTF-8 files with exotic characters or scripts (although the program itself has no problems with unicode characters...)

Hmmm... It seems it hasn't been updated since 2004. Stable?
