Students and parents alike will appreciate this excellent program, originally developed by a medical student when he couldn’t find a program that met his needs. PyFlashCards 0.3.0 lets you create your own custom flash cards, helping users to learn and retain important facts no matter what they are studying. Not only that, but the software allows the use of html tags so that important concepts can easily be highlighted, something that I found very helpful.
No matter what learning style a person has, pyFlashCards 0.3.0 can create study aids that are tailored perfectly to his or her requirements. As a visual learner, I especially appreciate the fact that the program supports the addition of images on the cards. Another plus is the Sebastian Leitner box system, which makes sure you don’t get bored to death by constant repetition of things already learned. It does this by sorting the cards based on how well you know them. The better you know the information, the less often you see the card, so you can focus on learning the things you don’t know. There is even Unicode support, so cards can be created in virtually any language.
Beyond the basics, pyFlashCards 0.3.0 has some great added features that users who have been frustrated by other flashcard creation programs will appreciate. It will run on Windows, Linux, and Mac, thanks to the fact that it is a wxPython-based program, so more people can use it. It allows the importing and exporting of XML and has html coding shortcuts to simplify card creation. This software is great, very easy to use and definitely a cut above anything else I’ve tried. I would recommend this to anybody who is in school or who has kids in school.
