simple learning is a sophisticated and easy to use learning app for your own educational content such as vocabularies, definitions, synonyms, or technical terms.

5/17/2012The app has real strengths (Quizlet support, categories, ease of use, best compatibility with the Metro style) but is more appropriate for small sets and shorter training periods. Simple Learning targets school students, while Kleio is best for life-long learners. The lack of an online synchronization made me drop a star. After several weeks of memorization of 350 words imported from Quizlet, I've lost all repetition history and downloaded sets on an app update. The ability to save the progress is a serious impediment in the long term. I've also come to appreciate the advantage of the 5 buttons. The 5 introduce a randomization factor, spreading the cards more evenly in the future. With Yes/No options, most cards end up due the same day. Combined with an irregular repetition behavior, it leads to large concentrations of cards. The only differentiator is to miss ocasionally the answers. Another minor aspect is the number of cards displayed on the start tile, which is limited at 99.
4/29/2012Version 3 introduces two most important features: Quizlet support and ability to reverse the cards. I find most interesting how the author automatized the Leitner 5 box system without having 5 buttons to chose from every time and how this works in tandem with the input box - confirmation method to provide simplicity and flexibility. Introduce support for private sets, ability to review a category at a time, and synthetized word pronunciation, and you will have the perfect system for language learning.
10/11/2011Needs an option to export cards, or else when I get a new phone I loose everything! Kleio is better because of this
9/18/2011$1.99 and you have to manually create cards within the app? For that price you should be able to publish cards to a website and be able to download to the app.
