Flashcard Program: great to remember lists

Flashcard programs such as Anki apply the principles of spaced repetition. They are the modern equivalent of physical flash cards. The advantages of using these programs is that they:

  • sync between desktop, phone and tablet devices
  • Keep track of which cards need more repetition and which cards don’t.

Check out this review on Anki by PC world:

And also the Anki Website.
