Anki

Anki

Anki is software which is designed to help you recall facts (e.g. words and phrases in a foreign language) as easily, effectively and promptly as possible. To do this, the software monitors how well each fact is remembered, and uses that information to optimally schedule review times.

Besides text, Anki supports multimedia, and even rendering TeX snippets in the cards. We particulary like the fact that the software synchronizes card decks to a server so that users can review the deck on other computers, a web interface or mobile devices, for which versions of Anki are also available. Even complete card decks offered by other users can be downloaded the same way. Anki offers a multitude of possibilities for learning.

Anki is extensible with plugins which can be downloaded and installed from the menu. While Anki can be used for studying anything, plugins are available with special features designed to make studying Japanese and English easier: integrated dictionary lookups, missing kanji reports, and much more.
