  1. Is there anyone who has used http://reflectapp.io for space repetition? What is your comments and best practice if you use it quite often?
  2. Maybe you can try the Card View and Expanded Card View mode. It is not exactly a flash card but maybe you can use it as it it.
  3. I don't like duplicates since it will cause problem if I occasionally want to update it a little bit. I am so tired to find a proper software to implement this Flash Card + Space Repetition. I have been looking for and compared many of them - Anki, Reflect and Nimblenotes but unfortunately, none of which was proper for me. So I may go back to this very initiative way by creating proper notes and practice it in Evernote and no where else. No tool is perfect but we need to practice and make it better and better. Thanks for all your replies and let's call it a day
  4. For creating flash cards, this software NimbleNotes may worth a try but you have to create manually.
  5. I think changing the tag is not very convenient comparing with my dynamic saved search way since it is one time setup.
  6. For example, I have a note going to my space repetition circle today on 2017-07-30, so I tag this note with 'reflect'. Then, this note will in my saved search result day1 (tag:"reflect" created:day-9 -created:day-8 -tag:"mastered"), which is the first time I review this note; then tomorrow on 2017-07-31, I will review it again since it is my saved search result day2 (tag:"reflect" created:day-2 -created:day-1 -tag:"mastered"); it will go like this and so on. The last time review will happen when I check the saved search day27 (tag:"reflect" created:day-27 -created:day-26 -tag:"mastered"). So you see, this is very dynamic since I check all these 5 saved searches every day to make sure I review all notes. In fact, I can combine the first 3 saved searches together to tag:"reflect" created:day-3 -tag:"mastered" to reduce the saved search numbers from 5 to 3.
  7. I tried it and it is great. (i even tell mac to say my name ) I even run some sample in the link your provided - https://dev.evernote.com/doc/articles/applescript.php, and that is interesting. I think I can do more in mac using this script not only for Evernote. I decide to learn this script from the Apple Developers Forum.
  8. I would like to learn using apple scripts to develop some specific features. I guess the Evernote developer forum to the right place to go. Do you have some recommend websites/books to learn this?
  9. I am reviewing on an interval basis saying every 1,2,3,9,27 days for my notes with 'reflect' tag. Your way may not meet this requirement. So I created some saved search to achieve this, which is easy to setup and practical. Here is one example of my saved searches: tag:"reflect" created:day-9 -created:day-8 -tag:"mastered" So this is for the noted 9 days ago. I can create other similar saved searches for other days. Here is how it works: Tag notes with 'reflect' flag on its creation if I decide to space repeat it Open all these saved searches and review them on daily basis Tag it with "mastered" when I master this notes so that it won't show in my further review One benefit of the system is dynamic: it follows this flow when the day comes to review a note, and no need further manual actions. How do you think of this approach?
  10. Yeah, I am serious. I hope I can bear the UI but before I make my mind. I would like to try something else although Anki should be the most reliable software for space repletion. I found this one Reflect which seems quite handy, so I may try it for a while. Using Anki as a habit requires strong discipline but the effort pays.
  11. You're genius. It works well now after your fix. By the way, I used Evernote for quite a few years but I am pretty new to Anki, which doesn't look so good at first glance. Maybe I will keep using it for a while till I can say whether it is proper for me or not for space repetition. In the meanwhile, I found another software 'Reflect' which could turn notes in Evernote for repetition. I bet you must use Anki, do you still use it? How do you feel and do you have other recommend software for space repetition (it's best to relate Evernote since I have tons of stuffs there)?
  12. I encounter this error when importing my notes to Anki. can you help? An error occurred in an add-on.

  13. No, it won't when it is in the title. Even, I tried to quote it using intitle:“some_” but failed.
