DescriptionFlux Cards helps you to have your flash cards always on you so you can learn as you go.
Study at the bus stop, after switching off your light at night or whenever you feel like having a minute.
Flux Cards always stores which cards need your attention and will let you focus on just these.
Of course you still can cram more but take care to not lose motivation.
== SUBSCRIPTIONS ==
FluxCards runs in one of three modes:
* FREE: no long streaks (cards of the selected sets will be presented for repetition at least every 16 days)
* EARLY BIRD: images, tilting screen and any future new feature contains some subscription reminder and/or is disabled. Early bird users are those that used FluxCards before the introduction of subscriptions.
* PREMIUM: no limitations for subscribers
== Getting Cards ==
Via Quizlet.com you can import over 8 million sets of cards in addition to typing them in yourself.
== Learning ==
Flux Cards uses a variation of Leitner system/spaced repetition
(Wikipedia on "spaced repetition": Spaced repetition is a learning technique that incorporates increasing intervals of time between subsequent review of previously learned material; this exploits the psychological spacing effect. Alternative names include spaced rehearsal, expanding rehearsal, graduated intervals, repetition spacing, repetition scheduling, spaced retrieval and expanded retrieval.")
Each flash card has a time stamp of when it was last shown to you and a count of times you knew the answer in a row.
The interval to show you this card again is increased with each time you knew the card.
If you don't know the card (red button) it will be shown to you in this session every some cards to get it into your short term memory.
You can set the card to not be shown in this session again (grey button).
With the first time you knew it (green button), it will be set to be repeated after some hours.
New flash cards - that is flash cards you never learned before - will only be added after you are out of cards due to be repeated.
This way you can learn for half an hour every day without getting only new cards all the time even when you start with a set of 10,000 cards.
PLEASE! If you miss a feature or don't like the background colour, don't rate at 1* and delete my app. I have quite some time at hands to improve it and giving 3* with the promise to make it 5* if XY is added is much more likely to get you the app that you want ;)
The competitors often have more buttons, timers and count downs. Flux Cards is good at presenting you the cards that you forgot. You are good at judging how long you want to stare at it per card or per day. And please, if there are cards that you constantly get wrong, reword the question. Knowing hundreds of cards but not this one is a clear sign there is something wrong with the question. Again, Flux Cards does not tell you which cards there are your problem cards. You know it better. Just hit the edit button ;)
== Stats ==
Flux Cards lets you know your learning progress. You can see when your cards will be due, how often you knew them in a row and what the estimated work load is and was in the past.
Please don't hunt for high scores but be honest when it comes to not knowing a card. I noticed how with all these stats I stronger tend to press the green button to not ruin my nice graphs, which lead me to pick stats that don't react too aggressively on single cards. Unfortunately I can't add a graph showing how honest one has been ;)
