Mnemosyne is a straightforward flashcard application that features powerful spaced repetition options in order to help you improve the learning process.
The program makes use of an advanced algorithm for displaying cards that are scheduled for repetition.
Users are given the freedom to rate their answers on a scale of 0-5 and depending on this particular choice, the app schedules the next repetition of the card. This way, you can focus on difficult cards rather than wasting your time on things that you already know.
The uncluttered interface provides a seamless navigation throughout the program’s features. While it gives rookies the chance to easily tweak the dedicated parameters, advanced users may take advantages of plugins and scripts in order to customize the working space.
Mnemosyne gives you the possibility to create your own database with flashcards, and you can add a new card to the list by picking the type (front-to-back, front-to-back and back-to-front, or vocabulary).
You may insert images (e.g. JPG, BMP, PNG, GIF, TIF), audio files (WAV, MP3, OGG), videos (e.g. MOV, MP4), and Flash files (SWF file format), select an initial grade, add tags, preview the cards, edit or delete cards, as well as check out a list with all generated flashcards and view details about them, such as question, answer, tag, grade, next and last repetitions.
What’s more, you are allowed to import data from pre-made Mnemosyne databases, SuperMemo collections, and text files, export learning data (decks of cards that include questions and answers) to MEM database files, as well as carry out synchronization operations between other computers.
Learning progress statistics
Mnemosyne provides details about the current card (e.g. grade, easiness, learning repetition, lapses, average thinking time) and reveals graphs that record data about various subjects, such as easiness, grades, learned and added cards, retention score, and scheduled cards. Additionally, the tool lets you find duplicate questions and deactivate cards.
Several tweaking parameters are put at your disposal in order to help you show new cards in the order they were added or random order, alter the card text in terms of font, font style, size, and color, and change the background color of the cards.
An overall excellent learning utility
To sum things up, Mnemosyne proves to be a reliable piece of software that combines ease of use with plenty of customization options through plugins and scripts in order to help you optimize your learning process.
