    New Flash Cards for iStudy

    I am learning japanese right now so I thought I could use the iStudy application to help me out. I made a collection of flash cards out of the edict dictionary. Currently it contains 4 categories: 499 random words from edict; 499 random verbs (transitive or intransitive, without -suru verbs) from edict; 499 random nouns from edict; 499 random adjectives from edict.

    The file is here:
    http://home.dankov.org/iflashcards/japanese_flashcards.tar.gz

    After you grab the file, put it in the /var/root/Library/iFlashCards/ directory and extract it. It will create 4 new directories with the necessary flashcards inside.

    Let me know if something is broken.

    I think it is essentially the same app... just the name changed (and apparently some new features were added) in the last build. In fact it should appear as an update in your installer... at least it did with mine.

    Thank you this is very useful ... do you have any other Japanese-learning aids (like dictionary) that we can put on the Touch?

    Many thanks

    i am planning to try and contribute to iStudy -there are a few things i would like to see implemented - but i dont know if i am going to have the time. Till then i will try to enrich whatever learning apps are out there with more resources for japanese (i know only of wedict and iStudy).

    It is very simple - go to the directory where the flashcards reside (/var/root/Library/iFlashCards/) and create a new directory (name it whatever you want). Inside it create 2 files - answers.txt and questions.txt. Each new line in those files equals a flash card entry. Of course both files have to have the same number of lines. Give it a try. If you have a large open source dictionary in Italian that you can parse - that would be great

    Wow, cool, I just tried the 499 cards you made. I think I might try to make up some flashcards too. Yours will prove extremely useful, I know! Thanks a billion.

    So, why 499? Is that a limit to the number you can have? And any method to how you chose them? I think if I can get around to it, I will try to make a few sets based on the JLPT levels... should make studying a bit easier I think.
