• 13 April 2015Soon: Review new cards in order

    Started work today on an option to review new cards (the blue pile) in their original RTK ordering. This update should be live this week !

    Up to now flashcard reviews have always used shuffling in order to provide a stronger test. However in retrospect I agree with forum poster john555 that: "in the initial memorizing stages it's useful to review in Heisig order because your memory of a specific kanji is reinforced by what comes before and after" (ie. characters built on components introduced in earlier characters). It will be an option!

    I should probably add a checkbox as well to the Custom Review page so you can chose to review any range of cards in order.

    Once I have the new "Review Options" page up, I might look into adding a few more that have been asked before. One is to display the On Yomi (reading) on the flashcards. This could provide an additional cue for remembering the characters. Let me know what you think!
