If you haven’t noticed I am huge fan of Ankidroid. I first came across it on Benny Lewis’s site a few years ago. There isn’t an app that I use as much as this. I have learnt thousands words and phrases all thanks to this app.
What are spaced repition flash cards?
We all know what flash cards are but why is Ankidroid so special? Well instead of having a stack of paper flash cards they are nicely stored in your phone. Each answer you give decides when it will appear again. For example if you view a card and you answer it correctly Ankidroid will decide when the card should appear again. If you don’t answer it correctly it will keep showing it until you answer it correctly.
Ankidroid has a great algorithm for memorising anything. It calculates when you should view certain cards and how often.
What can you add to Ankidroid?
Anything! You can study anything! I’ve seen people studying languages to mathematics to physics to computing using Ankidroid. You can add any media type making the flash cards very interactive as opposed to being plain using paper cards.
What platforms can it be used on?
Ankidroid is available for all platforms as far as I am aware, from iOS to Android to Windows PCs. It really is fantastic!
How much is it?
