Flashcard Hero is intended to help you study. In this respect, the application uses the popular flashcard technique, which is mainly useful for learning factual information. Compared with using paper flashcards, this tool has the main advantage of saving you from manually keeping track of what you have already mastered.
Flashcard Hero is quite easy to use. In this sense, it is great that its interface has tabs matching the intended workflow. Thus, you can start by writing your cards, study their contents and monitor your progress. By the way, I find that classifying cards by difficulty levels as Not Studied, Difficult, Somewhat Difficult and Memorized is especially convenient to let you focus on what requires more study time.
Good news is that the application smartly manages your learning. It lets you see the list of cards you are to study in the upcoming days. Besides, if you fail to remember the facts on a given card, it is scheduled for further reviewing. What is more, the tool supports the so-called Leitner system, also known as Space Repetition. This means that you are asked to review a given card in increasing time intervals, which favors long-term over short-term memory.
As to creating cards, it is good that you can add long texts instead of just pairs of words. Luckily, text formatting and lists are also supported. Likewise, it is possible to include images and audio. Unfortunately, I could not find a way to insert video clips as well. more
