Received After 0.95 Release:
- "Not yet ready for prime time.
Your program may, in fact, be better than I realize; but you have not
not made clear to the user how to access any of the features, even the
simple act of using the demonstration sets as flashcards. Your GRE sample
contains notable spelling errors: anathema and disconsolate are misspelled.
The Chinese sample must require a font that is not available. It comes
out as gibberish. You say that the program now supports graphics in
the first field, but there is no indication of HOW to use them.
Your idea is intriguing, and I hope you can come up with a more useful
version. Please bear in mind that in addition to writing an effective
program, you must make it accessible to potential users. People who

Received Before 0.95:
- "I like the look of the program. The metallic
background is nice. It reminds
me of signs in London. Every building or park or whatever has a sign
tells you what you can do there or who works there. They often have
same metallic look and I've always regarded it
- "It's a nice program. Keep working on it. Small
is beautiful. You don't need
so many features if the ones you have are working
- "Preparing the flashcards takes a long time. My
wife said 'impressive',
because nothing happened for a long time. Then
she went to sleep."
- "[Flashcard Wizard] is very decent. I'm looking
forward to future releases."
