"Great flashcard program but a bit quirky"
The desktop program works well for most users, and it has a variety of plug-ins that expand its capability for things like Japanese vocabulary. It is possible to present flash cards in more than one form (eg: user sees the 'front' and answers with the 'back' or vice versa) and the program adjusts the scheduling for the 'front' and 'back' separately based on accuracy of recall. Basic card design is fairly simple, and it is fairly easy to import text files. There are versions for mobile devices. I use the Windows version on my Win 7 computer at home and the iPhone version on my iPod Touch - but the iPhone version is NOT free. I have read that there is also an Android version but I don't know anything about it. Using the portable version allows me to do my learning 'homework' whether I am near the home PC or not.
Like anything else, there is a learning curve. The basic program seems to be the product of one programmer working by himself. That means the documentation/support information is a bit uneven.
A really useful flashcard program with some quirks. It has really helped me in my foreign language study.
