Progress on the next release of Flashcard Wizard: 1.0
May 10th - I have just released Flashcard Wizard 0.95 and hope to have the full shareware version released in June when I get some time to work on the List Review and Quiz Modes which will be powerful and feature pack. I need more time for these since they, especially the Quiz Mode, will involve some complicated coding.
Features Coming to a Version Near You...
The current beta release of Flashcard Wizard contains only one of the three modes of study which will eventually included - the flashcard mode. There are also a number of other features that have been disabled because they are still not fully operational. Below is an outline of some of those features:
List Review is the second study mode and very useful for increasing study efficiency. Interval Study available.
This mode of study is the traditional quiz study setting where answers are inputed and graded by the software.
A powerful Sort command will be available...
A fast Find command will be available...
Customize colors, buttons, and backgrounds!
