[prMac.com] Ma On Shan, Hong Kong - bambooapps is pleased to announce Keep Your Word 2.0, an important update to their popular vocabulary and flashcard cataloger and trainer for Macintosh and iPhone devices. Keep Your Word lets language students and educators alike build their own dictionary by classifying and grouping terms exactly as they wish.
Specifically oriented towards learning a vocabulary, or a list of terms, Keep Your Word features a comfortable and easy-to-use iTunes-like interface. The application places emphasis on three different stages (Collect, Classify and Memorize) to better help learn any language.
Keep Your Word is designed to:
* Let you build a dictionary of terms
* Organize and classify words
* Find words quickly
* Do exercises
Serving as a collection of words to remember, users collect all the words they need to study, then add sound, images, and other metadata, such as comments, or keyword tags. Word collections can then be organized by static categories, or by using Keep Your Word's smart groups based on the collection's metadata (tag-based, date-based, etc.).
Keep Your Word features six different exercise modes, including a flashcard quiz, written tests, memory review, and a unique Quick Quiz. Keep Your Word automatically tracks study progress, and optionally selects the words for the exercise modes according to spaced repetition algorithms. Combined with Keep Your Word's exercise modes and tracking, helps dramatically with retention. And with bambooapps' free and complementary iPhone client, makes studying on-the-go a breeze.
* Comfortable and simple User Interface
* Six different Exercise Modes
* Add sound, images, and other metadata
* Tracks study progress

"I started the development of Keep Your Word when I started studying Cantonese," said Cesar Tardaguila, founder of bambooapps. "I noticed that none of the available tools could fit my needs, such as easy word cataloging, and quick word finding."
* Mac OS X Version 10.5 Leopard or later (Snow Leopard Compatible)
* Universal Binary for PowerPC and Intel
* 5.6 MB Hard Drive space
* Internet Connection
