Memorión v5.20 has been released

  • This update brings a full visual overhaul, with new icons, new buttons and color schemes. Memorión now looks very sleek!
  • I also further reduced the number of functions of the Beginner mode to the bare essentials for learning and the Advanced mode has been removed (the user mode icon now just toggles between Beginner and Expert)
  • Long-tapping on items now switches to selection mode (according to Android standard)
Version 5.21 fixes a few bugs of the mayor release v5.20.

Memorion v5.00 is out

The last months I was just busy cranking out new Memorión versions, therefore this blog has been neglected a bit. But it was worth it!

Version 5 has become much simpler, especially for the new user.
Memorión starts now with a very cleaned up user interface, having clever automatisms work in the background. And when you become a Memorión expert, all the functions you are missing on the other flashcard programs are becoming visible and you gain full control.

Additionally, Version 5 let's already the beginner use all registers of the powerful learning engine (that previously only advanced and expert users had access to), while hiding its details completely.

Notifications will help you keeping up with learning.

v5.02 brings some tweaks and bugfixes, so now I can concentrate on the next developments.

And not to completely forget about the versions not receiving a post before:

v4.8x: you can share databases, stacks, cards, plots; weekly updates to cloud services

v4.7x: better ColorDict support, more plots and many, many bugfixes

v4.6x: learning model now incorporates delayed repeats for more efficient short-term learning

Have fun never forgetting again...

Memorión v4.50 has been released

This time I worked pretty hard on new plots.

The most important one is the daily Progress Report with smileys:

The type of smiley tells you how diligent were that day, the halo changes its color depending on how many day you have been using Memorión w/o break (up to royal purple, even I have not reach it, yet).

But  I also added 7 more plots to the statistics page, telling you how many games you have played, how many cards studied, the maturation progress and more.

This update adds functions to Copy/Paste/Swap etc configurations in ExpertConfig.

There are also a couple of bugfixes.

Memorión v4.20 is released

The stack configuration page had been very powerful, but it was too complicated, especially for newcomers.

Therefore Memorión has a new Simple Config page for the most basic needs, like changing the asking direction, the languages for the different fields, how many new cards to learn every day.

Meanwhile the old configuration page changed to the Expert Config page, the wizards being vastly simplified, a more compact layout and a fixed preview row to see all changes directly in action.

v4.21: fixed a small oversight for tablets, sorry for that (the feature to go to the configuration page directly from the card view was too last minute to be fully tested...)

Memorión 4.10 released

This version brings a feature I am thinking about since two years: Multiple-Choice (MC) cards

MC is easier than regular active recall, therefore its main purpose in Memorión is as a last resort for difficult cards (either manually or after too many lapses). But there also some categories of cards that benefit genuinely, like cards asking for images, photos and formulas.

Working on the CardEdit page, I also revamped the answer modes using the keyboard and the whiteboard, such that, when learning new cards, there is a feedback while typing and a copy mode to get the answer right.

All these answer modes can be pre-selected per stack, allowing e.g. the Hindi stacks to always show the whiteboard and for you to type the French stack with all these accents...

Memorión v4.00

And brings with it a whole new way to learn and study cards:

Card Games 
So far, there are 6 different games implemented, focusing on different aspects of passive and active memorization. There are various multiple-choice scenarios like 1-on-n, n-on-n, based on text and acoustic understanding. Special training to learn numbers. Hang-Man, you name it.
All with statistics (more to come), different levels, different selections of cards to play with.

Have as much fun with it as I and my beta-testers do.

This is really a second leg to learn stuff, repeat it before an exam, just spend some extra free time to practice your cards.
No need to commit cards (but it probably works even better on committed cards).
