Default Flashcards. . . the hunt continues

Please Login to Remove!

Hi guys. Forgive the cross-post with HoFo, but my question seems to have stumped the folks over there. Here's what I'm looking for:
I'm looking for a BB equivalent of the excellent flashcard application/suite Pocketlearn PocketLearn - The mobile learning system for Windows/Windows Mobile.

Here's what I need: I have to generate custom content for weird terminology in my fields (I teach martial arts, and some other related things). I only need text (no images or anything), and need room for a hundred words or so on the definition side of the card. I have around 300-500 cards.

So far I've tried Tango, StudyMe, and the Java version of Pocketlearn. Tango and StudyMe are incredibly kludgy or incomprehensible to use, and the java version of PocketLearn won't run on my BB 8320. I've emailed the (very nice) folks at PocketLearn to ask for an updated/BB specific app.

In the meantime, I can't believe there's nothing out there that lets me custom-create quizzes based on simple text files. There are a few pre-made flashcard suites, I see (for doctors and such), but nothing that seems to do what I need.

So, does anyone have any ideas?

Default In the same boat as you...

I've been looking for flashcards that will work on the blackberry as well. I've resorted to other variants (i.e. flashcards for cellphones). One that I've found that seems to work (although, I might end up going back to my PPC only because of personal preference and familiarity) is MobilePrep. I tried studygo, studycell/cellpup, etc. but found them to be clumsy and not intuitive. MobilePrep folks seem to be respond (although be prepared for delays), and is in the process of expanding capability.

Good Luck!

If you do find of a better looking flashcard application, I would appreciate it if you could let me know. I hate the idea of carrying my PPC and BB, but will do it if no other better option arises.

Default Flashcards for Blackberries

I've used Stuycell recently (and in the past) and they have significantly changed their product which has made it much easier to use.

I am studying for the Chartered Financial Analyst exam and would also like to make my own flash cards on the blackberry. It would seem like an easy program to create (if one knew how to program for the bb!).

My company will have some free Flashcards code available for beta in a few weeks. Please send me an email if you'd like to be an early adopter - I expect it'll probably just work for Pearl/Curve tho....

Default A free flashcard and trivia application called gFlash+

Consider trying a free application called gFlash+, a flashcard / trivia game application from gWhiz. gFlash+ can be used to study for exams or test a userís trivia knowledge. Users can even create and share flashcard sets with other BlackBerry users via the gWhiz catalog or email.

You can get more information at gwhizmobile.com or download the application OTA at m.gwhizmobile.com. The download includes both gFlash+ and gCalc, a free university level graphing calculator.

There is a promo code that has just been released for Cram.

Just enter code: CRAMFORPRESIDENT and it discounts the software by 15% on the SimpleLeap website.
