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).

Memorión v3.40 is out

Hi everyone. 
This new update include ways to more actively recall your answer using a whiteboard, a keyboard or audio recordings. On the answer side of the card you can compare your answer with the correct one. 
I was thinking about the whiteboard for some time now. But it was Samantha's suggestion to be able to type the answer that let me think: What the heck, let's implement it.
Also I would like to thank Serkan to take his precious time to translate the flashcards to Turkish. I am very grateful.
BTW, if you are native of a language not supported by the LanguageWizard and know German and/or English well: If you are interested in helping me with a new translation, contact me (Memorion@gmx.net), it would be really great! It would mean to translate an Excel sheet column into another, normally a few hours of work.

Memorión v3.30 is out

This release mostly aims to smooth the user experience, especially around the concept of committing cards.
There is one more plot, showing the forget rate as a function of the previous interval.
Also I incorporated many bug reports and fixed a bunch of small things.

In the background I am working on version 4 (since finishing v3.00). But depending on how smoothly things are progressing there might be a further intermediate release. We will see...

Triple Gold Award

Hi everyone, one of my older stacks reached three golden stars today, that means >3000 days average interval...
It will take awhile until the other stacks will follow, nevertheless I am happy.

Memorión v3.20 is out

This version brings 4 more plots on the Statistics Page, improvements in the Text-To-Speech handling and many more small things.

I tend to review in the morning.

Slagging leads to worse answers.

Cards I known I answer quickly, forgotten cards take longer
