mac (Archived) Request flash card memorization function

Recommended Posts

For me and I believe for many of the others, the main function of Evernote is to take notes for important information during reading. Thus, an incorporated flash card function similar to SuperMemo would make Evernote really powerful!

I used to use Supermemo & loved it. However, I suspect the whole flash card functionality that Supermemo had is probably beyond the scope of Evernote, at least at this time. Supermemo was designed to be a flash card app, so it kept track of what cards you'd already looked at (so it would cycle through them all) and what answers you got right/wrong (so it could re-ask ones you'd missed), etc.

However, if you really wanted to move to Evernote from Supermemo, it's certainly easy enough to make each question a note & have to scroll down for the answer & tag the questions according to whatever task/test/etc they apply to. You could then add a space to each note, after looking at the question. This would change the modified date & so you could sort ascending on modified date to find the notes you've not looked at recently. Certainly not on par with Supermemo. But then, like I said, I rather doubt this would be very high on EN's list, at least for a long time.

Thanks! You're right, we shouldn't solely rely on the computer and software. I once heard that people who has the best memory rarely use pen and notebook, but focusing, :lol:

Umm...that's not what I thought I said. :lol: I love Supermemo...but it's probably (like, in really, really, probably) beyond the scope of Evernote's focus.

I know this is an old topic, but my non-profit, public-charity the Paper Upgrade Project offers a free flashcard program that reads from Evernote. It's called EZFlashcards (www.ezflashcards.com). StudyBlue is a paid service that offers similar features.
