@ Jeff Minnis ... comment 47

Here is the result of running StudyX:

"An unknown error has occured [sic] while activating or while checking activation validity. Please contact support."

That was using real information!!

You say "We planned on only requiring a name and email, you can always put fake info in any parts you are not comfortable filling out." So, I tried using some random information and had the same result.

Then, this message appears:
"Please wait while the registration process" [which isn't even a complete sentence]

After that, another window appears which states:
"An error has occurred. StudyX will attempt to continue. This error has been logged to the Event Viewer app log."

Then another message says:
"Application not found"

At this point, it's totally stuck on "step 3."

Obviously, you do not know your own program. 30 minutes down the drain including the download and GOTD activation process.

I like it. Lots of premade flash templates. Questions are timed so you can race the clock. Much like a game in concept. All subjects at all levels - for example there are many premade sets on college level organic chemistry. I might have a tough time at $40, but for free this is good. Definitely worth a try.

Downloaded & installed 7 from a very quick look this appears to be a reasonable flash card program. The best part for me is the extensive language files that come with it & the worst is the standard English tts voice that it uses when you select the voice option,it is awful, think "Danger will Robinson".
I started trying to learn french a few years ago & thought a flash card program might help me learn verbs etc, and I spent many days over a period of time researching, finding & trying all the freeware flash card programs I could get my hands on, there were not that many I could find then, there maybe more now.
The important thing for me was that sound files & picture imports were supported, as in my opinion hearing the proper pronunciation of the language you are trying to learn is very important, many of the programs did not support sound.

The best non-online programs I found to create your own cards for any subject were:

1. Mnemosyne http://mnemosyne-proj.org/features
2. Teach 2000 http://www.teach2000.org/index.php?hl=english
3. Anki http://ankisrs.net/

I chose to use Anki, as it seemed to have the most extensive features, is highly customisable & was & still is being actively developed. It really is a great program & in my opinion it is probably the best flash card program out there, freeware or commercial, Other people may know better, it would be great to hear what others would recommend or know of.
The other great free program, if you just want to learn just a language is "Byki Express" http://www.byki.com/ .
This is a absolutely superb program, which has a great feature which not only allows you to play sound files, but will play them at a slowed down rate at the click of a button, to allow you to hear the pronunciation clearly. If that was not enough there are thousands of free flash card lists of many different languages, available for download at "List Central" on the site. Currently there are 2088 for french alone! Some of these are provide by Byki, but most are uploaded from other users, not all have sound, but those that have are clearly marked. Check it out for yourself & see if you are as impressed as I am.
Hope that this information is of interest to some people, as I just wanted to give a little back & to thank all the people who regularly review, & make constructive comments about the software offered on this site, very often pointing us to excellent freeware alternatives.............. We all know who they are!
I would also like to thank all the software developers who offer us there software free of charge for a day. The chance to try your products if they are of interest without having to commit large amounts of money first, is fantastic, thank you again.

Put fake info? What is the point? Why not just have all that information optional? Also why is there not privacy policy?
I do like your software, but the price tag of $30.90 (Is that US $) is way too much when there are free alternatives available. Please make the price tag more realistic so someone who looks at it's price will actually consider buying it.
Also your site needs a lot more polishing. It seems like a child designed the site. If you want people to take you seriously then please make some big changes to your site and put a Privacy Policy and a Disclaimer there.
Do not ask people to input fake info into forms as it gives people an impression that you might be giving fake information too to get things done. Not a good idea for a company that wants to do serious business. Just change the option for those input boxes to optional or if you are not willing to do that then definitely make sure that you have a Privacy Policy in place at-least on your site and I cannot stress this enough.
I can only hope that you are a responsible developer and business and will take this as constructive criticism (It's not really even criticism, it's more a suggestion).

Hi GAOTD
This program my be suitable for some people and they may find useful, but in my case it is not.
I intered my feild of study, which is "Internal Medicine" and I hit the search button. The program came up with many many referance sources for the questions.
The questions were so naive that I laughed, for example:
Q: Age 60 to 70?
A:1.the gene which....
2.the drug of choice for treating...
3.the enzyme elevated in...
4.the age we must...
What choice should even a lay man make?
So, I need to find answers to these two questions:
1.How can I expand the data base of the program?
2.How can I find an alternative.
Thanks GAOTD?

Thanks everyone!

Our goal is to make learning more fun. We have over 30 million study files including files for medical students.

We planned on only requiring a name and email, you can always put fake info in any parts you are not comfortable filling out.

Studying never stops, enjoy learning!

This is the type of program you must have a need of to appreciate.
If you already have an alternative program or system, you probably won't appreciate this. If you have no need to study, then you won't appreciate it either. On the other hand, I for example, am always looking for new or better ways to study the Bible. This program has several downloadable files for bible Study.

And with Over 30 million study files available for free via download, chances are pretty good, you could find files for whatever it is you want to study.

So a Big Thanks to Jeff Computers and GOTD...

My program is very good, I downloaded this program a long time ago when the GOTD released, I was using similar direct programs. This software has the benefit of response that Jeff gives if send questions to him myself here in Brazil sent questions and ideas and was always very well attended. I understand that most benefited by this program are children and the elderly.

I turn 60 in a month or so & I have a couple of college degrees & a University degree (Under doctorate) and contrary to what was said before - ALL levels of education required "passing test or exams" - it was proof that you had inhale, regurgitated, and were able to spit out the ideas in terms you were able to remodel & understand. Hell, I didn't even have a calculator until my 1st semester of private college (one of "those" students) - and I didn't have a computer & a "dot-matrix printer" until I was working 2 jobs - owing one of my first companies & starting University (late-bloomer - started University at 35 & I DID take 5 years to finish & I worked for others & owned my own companies (worked them basically as part-time jobs - everything from writing code fixes in a few different "ancient" languages now to turning wrenches on the physical box - to developing new ways to utilize all the stuff that was coming at me. Everything was a "TEST" & I now wish that I had had different programs like this to keep my mind focussed - instead of an ocean of data & me trying to swim the depths "looking" for the "right" answer. Thkx GOTD & JeffComputers. As for #1 there is "Ctrl+C & Ctrl+V" or even using a mouse to highlight & "right-click" to pick your choice (maybe you could use the flash cards to find alternatives - just joking - Have a great day all.
(And yes I did work with punch card computers to develop databases for different companies.)

Some of the best minds Britain produced came from utter poverty, their success came from understanding of what they were taught not learning like parrots, today's inner city schools would be heaven compared to those times.
My good fortune was leaving an abysmal school in England which produced the most miserable and boring time in my studies to a school in Scotland by the name of Darroch.
There inspired teaching made learning something I looked forward to every day particularly in science and mathematics, two teachers who brought their subjects to life.
Because of them I became a professional mechanical engineer, marine chief engineer and lastly did a postgraduate in computing.
If I had remained at the first school I would have dropped out from education and had a much less rewarding life.
If teachers are allowed to teach and inspire children they will produce much happier and successful adults.

"No wonder my teacher friends find their job so uninspiring and their pupils become bored by the parrot learning systems we have in place, we educate to pass tests!"
"Just to add a little meat to my comment #5,TED Talks have many excellent speakers on education, one in particular speaks well against today’s method of learning."
.
I'm not going to pretend to have all the answers, & I tend to discount any one person or group claiming that they do. I will say my mom's a retired teacher with as much enthusiasm, if not more for teaching than when she was younger & still in the classroom. And she's in her 90s. Practically speaking, teaching for decades, the 2 greatest hurdles she ever found were people that weren't teachers getting in the way, saying how teaching should work, and people becoming teachers who shouldn't have... In the US the best & brightest were actively discouraged from going into teaching because there were no jobs, the quality of professors teaching education declined, and somewhere the whole thing started becoming political. On top of that many western societies changed in the last couple of decades, making teachers' job harder. Tech advanced at a tremendous rate, only nobody trained them in it, & those in charge of the schools failed by & large to support it.

It's too easy then to find problems with today's educational systems, just like it's too easy to propose solutions to one or a few parts of broken systems. What it will take however is a Much more holistic approach, a wiser use of funding, & perhaps a bit of humility on the part of those who've never tried to teach as a career. TED is maybe cool, but I have to wonder what would happen if you stuck one of their generally well-known, probably wealthy speakers, in an inner city school behind a teacher's desk? ;)

#22: "I wanted to try this to memorize all guitar chord variations. "

Imprinting memory works best, forming the strongest memories when more than one sense is involved. If you have a particularly strong memory of something, of some event, you'll likely remember all sorts of details, like smells & sounds & feelings. If you wanted to use flash cards then I'd humbly suggest pairing them with playing the chord, for the sensations as you move your fingers into place, coupled with the sound of the chord, reinforcing the notation you saw.

* * *

#24: "I am in Jamaica, we do not have postal codes, so can not register with the demanded personal detail that is excessive."

People on GOTD frequently talk about using temporary or even bogus e-mail addresses -- I very seriously doubt someone from Jeff Computers is going to mail you anything or show up at your door. ;)

* * *

#27: "Please don’t bother responding with the hype that is currently around Asperger’s and Autism...
If this guy actually has a mental – a-hem, learning – disability, then maybe this software will benefit someone with a similar disability."

.
Who knows? And I mean that very literally, Who Knows?

It's extremely easy to doubt or even make fun of something you personally disagree with, or have no knowledge of. Millions of people suffer from the same illness or illnesses that cause my disability, it may well have been around for hundreds of years if not longer, but science hasn't figured out what causes it yet, so some people & governments etc. still deny it exists. All I can say is that *IF* our negative karma guns really work, we're causing a population boom in Hades with such people. :) My brain's broken, I lost the ability to read/write a few times, & while I still can't write well at all, I've collected lots of methods etc. that help enough that I can type something like this post.

Flash cards, real or in software, may help or not. PCs can sometimes help, sometimes in unexpected ways -- I can barely print or hand write, but I can use a keyboard because each key has a picture of a character on it.

Purely FWIW, there's been more than plenty of research on memory & learning, so if that's something you're interested in for yourself or one of your children etc. do pursue it, trying different things to see what works best for those involved -- we're all different & there's no canned approach that works for everyone. At it's root forming new memories is about repetition, reinforcing what we remember & learn, but there are quite a few ways to go about that, so again find what works. If flash cards do it for you, great, but they're not for everyone, so don't feel badly if they don't work, & don't force them on a child that hates them.

Personally I'd question the multiple choice approach simply because research on scoring well on tests shows how to game the system -- you can get better than 50:50 odds of getting the question correct without knowing the answer. That kind of defeats the purpose of studying, though I could see how it might make the software more popular by allowing people to get more questions right & boosting their ego. [If you're curious check out the course & books etc. on preparing for & taking tests -- there's quite a bit for example written on how to get better scores on college entrance exams.]

I do not like giving away my personal info to anyone on the Internet. It is scary and utterly careless to do so. Therefore I decided to use my fake personal data, fake phone number, and a fake email address. It worked. I was able to register the software. But after playing with it for a while, I decided to uninstall it anyway. It’s not for me.

Didn't check this out, but a couple other alternatives should be the program Anki, which I have found very useful for studying geography and language, and the website Quizlet.com, which has games and tools to study lists.

Sporcle.com is another great site to help learn things, but it's a little different in direction, but worth trying out. If you guys find that this program tops all those sites, may need to give it a try, but it's unlikely that they'll upset this collection based upon current reviews?

Coincidentally enough, I've been looking at many flashcard programs that are available, both free and paid. I was not aware of this program prior to this GAOTD, so I was pleased to see it.

It downloaded and installed fine on a Win7 computer. The Terms of Use refer to only a 30 day shareware and what you can or can't do with it as shareware. Most people click through it without reading, I just got curious enough to peruse it. At least it was short.

As others have stated, the registration process demands too much private information. I had no problem giving them an obviously fake address and phone number. When they can prove that my personal information is transferred and stored securely, I'll then consider if I want them to have it.

As for the program itself - it looks quite a bit dated, especially considering that this guy developed this after 2003. If this was a very powerful program, you could maybe overlook the interface, but it isn't. As far as I can tell by using the program a little and reading the help file, there is no support for images or video. Considering that the free Mnemosyne does, that is a problem. It does have an option to read the question/answer to you - it's a very computerized female voice. I don't know if it is installed or is using the Windows reader.

It has some games reminiscent of the old DOS/Win95 games that incorporate the flashcard information. There is a really boring blocky maze game. You click the block in front of your player to move it to that block. If the block looks like a door, it throws up a question. If you answer correctly, you can move onto that block and then beyond. There is no music or anything, which may be a blessing in disguise. I was bored - and annoyed when I tried it. I can't imagine some kid today will play it. Remember the game where you had to defend your city from incoming missiles by shooting them down (Missile Command?). I liked that game. They have a version of this. It's boring, confusing, and your gun doesn't always work. Randomly, and when you finish a "level", a question is thrown up in your face. You get money, but for what I don't know. There is the background cityscape, but nothing happens on that. There is a tiny little factory building in the middle, but apparently that isn't important to protect either. You need to make sure the missiles don't hit the flat ground. The very definition of not fun.

The program does easily search quizlet.com database and import into the program. If you want to use it offline, you'll need to save these to your computer before closing the program.

I took a look at the "About Us" page. The company is based out of Missouri. The guy describes himself as having Asperger's, which apparently now makes your a genius no one understands, and then goes on to claim that Bill Gates suffers from Asperger's and maybe even full-blown autism based on some shoddy opinion piece and the fact that "Gates responded well to the computer too". Seriously? (Please don't bother responding with the hype that is currently around Asperger's and Autism)

Which brings me to my final point. If this guy actually has a mental - a-hem, learning - disability, then maybe this software will benefit someone with a similar disability. What I find amazingly boring both visually and mentally may be just what someone else needs, which is why I am refraining from giving this a big thumbs-down. I'm also not giving it a thumbs-up, because it does not meet the basic standards of freeware that is available.

I still use flash cards to remember some of thhe stuff I learned many years ago, and I find the system quite useful.

I'm sure StudyX is another flash cards software which you can make use if you're into it. However, I didn't download it because it is lack of a very important feature: multi-platform.

There're some very good flash card systems which can work on your desktop and mobile phone, so commuting will not be a waste of time anymore.

Try Ankiweb, for example.

There is no point in my even trying to use this program, and I would have use for it. As it was for the user in Japan, I am in Jamaica, we do not have postal codes, so can not register with the demanded personal detail that is excessive. For a program that tries to teach, the developer needs to learn practicality before trying to go global (as with GAOTD).

The other detail is that there is a need to be able to 'edit' the downloaded questions for not everyone speaks American... I speak English.

Installed on Win8.1-x64 (twice, because didn't notice that the Software Informer window contained the serial number)
The translation to my native language was no better than what Google Translate would have done (if not worse).
I wanted to try this to memorize all guitar chord variations. On initial start, the program suggested that first I need to find out whether my field of interest is already available or not. I was thrilled by the idea that I just can start the studying part.
I searched for 'guitar' and the first result "Guitar Chord (all you need)" sounded like what I was looking for. I selected it and clicked on the button [Add to StudyX]. Nothing happened. Searched to documentation: there was nothing written about the "Search Content" window.
Already have the feeling that the program is half-bake.
I'll give it another try and input the chords myself.

Pros:
The library of cards already available is impressive. The automatic questions when you type in an answer is pretty cool too.

Cons:
The need to have my name, address and phone number is not cool. I always get a tad paranoid when people want overly detailed information about me.

The use of the multiple-choice format is a bit of a let-down, I find. I'd much rather see a system that would dynamically compare a typed answer to the recorded answer, so it would be possible to have long sentences or even paragraphs as answers, without having to get the wording letter-perfect.

The interface is too cluttered, and needs to be cleaned up. The clutter is bad when you're trying to focus on learning, and a lot of the functionality of the clutter could be hidden in tool bar menus or right-click menus, to leave the space clear for the main purpose.

Alternatives:
I checked out the Mnemosyne software as suggested by Hermann in comment #7. While simpler in layout and use, I find it much superior in the process of memorizing and learning, as it will not tell you the answer up front (as it does in a multiple-choice test), but rather you will have to know the answer (or not) and then ask to see the answer. It'll also show you your cards based on how well you remember them, so the hard ones are shown more frequently.

If you go with Mnemosyne, though, I'd suggest using Notepad to type out your answer before showing the card, as there is no real interaction with Mnemosyne, apart from showing the answer.

This was fun :) Brought a smile to my face, though it'll take some time to get used to the controls. The questions repeat often but you just have to "next" your way out of it. Looks & feels basic but runs its course without any problem. Thanks guys :) :)

Great software, but no privacy policy.
No privacy policy while installing or on the developer's site. If you are asking for personal information then you must have a privacy policy in place.

@Jeff Computers please post a privacy policy on your site before asking for personal information.

Sorry, as soon as it asked for address, tel number etc. I deleted it. They don't need this information for me to use the software so I'm not being forced into giving it.

Regarding my previous comment, here's a proof, and it's not even the program I was thinking of. This one is from 1988, based on same concept as the giweaway.

This comment and my former one is regarding the description of the software, which is plain silly. It may well be quite good, but it is by no means the World's first.

Will not activate using my Japanese details even though I tried 3 different ways. I have contacted support and will update if I find a fix

After reading the website info, I'm thinking this does not support graphics on the flashcard (e.g., identify the object shown here). Can anyone confirm/deny this? Thx

Sadly I run it. It does no go further than the attempt to connect to a server.

Seems it's trying to connect to a server and either server is down or it does not use IE proxy settings. This leads to failing registration.

Also Trial does not work due the same connecting problem.

Very sad !!!

Developer should either build in Proxy support or use Windows/IE proxy settings.

somebody forget to write that Basic.NET apps require .NET framework. Since I dont like that sh!y and don't installed that apps in not usefull for me. I'm waiting for pure win32, portable application.

One more thing- there are in directory of application files named Copy of something.jpg, Copy of somethingXXX.some - why as end user I have to see that mess!

Quick Launch Icon not works even I points to good folder on disk :( dunno know why. I just pressed it and OS says - this link is not useful, delete it?

Please try you app before! launch.

hi all - installed easily enough in win7 64bit prof. however when i started using it and testing the english built in questions it all got a bit strange. there is a question about keats that appeared four times before i gave up. the first time all went well but on all subsequent occasions the options offered for the answer did not include the actual answer as correctly given first time asked. i cannot help but wonder if any of the questions are wrong.

If I recall correctly I saw general purpose flash card learning software on Atari ST and Mac in the late 80s.

Doubt that this is the same software.
