[prMac.com] Philippsburg, Germany - Independent software developer Christian Kienle today announced Ebbinghaus 3.1 for Mac OS X. Ebbinghaus is an easy-to-use flash card application with a beautiful iTunes-like user interface. Organize your cards in decks, folders and smart decks. When selecting a deck, its cards will be shown in a table. Each card has a progress indicator so that you see your overall performance at a glance. Ebbinghaus was a German psychologist, who invented the learning curve.
Ebbinghaus 3.1 comes with two new features. Decks can now be exported and saved in any place on your hard disk. In addition to that Ebbinghaus 3.1 allows you to share a deck with your friends via email with just a few clicks. Collaboration makes fun.
A wonderful way to study:
Select the deck and press "Study". It is that easy. Ebbinghaus will show you the cards one by one. You can type in your answer and Ebbinghaus will automatically detect whether your answer is right or wrong.
Smart decks allow you to specify a set of rules that determine which cards the deck will contain. For example, you could have a smart deck that always contains cards you recently studied and answered wrong.
Ebbinghaus comes with a formula editor. The formula editor lets you create graphical formulas by typing in a LaTeX style text. For example, you can then drop the formula on any card. That's the best way to learn formulas of nearly any complexity.
Exporting to iPhoto:
Do you own an iPod or an iPhone? Great! Ebbinghaus lets you export decks as a series of images directly to iPhoto with just a few clicks. You can then use iTunes to sync them onto your iPod or iPhone and study on the go.
