    Hello all, I am excited to announce the availability of FlashCards++ (purchase on iTunes) for iPhone and iPod Touch. I'm a grad student (history Phd) and have been looking for a good flash card app to help learn languages, but none really have fit the bill - they are either too complicated, do things I don't want them to do (and are too slow as a result), or can't handle the large number of vocab words that I want to learn.

    So... I wrote my own! The two keys that I focused on were (1) the ability to import cards from Quizlet.com and FlashcardsExchange.com, and (2) the implementation of the awesome SuperMemo algorithm. FlashCards++ is not affiliated with SuperMemo in any way but i wanted to be able to use the "spaced repetition" algorithm, which no app seems to implement--or if it tries to, it uses a pared-down algorithm which does not have the same advantages.

    Anyway, you can check out the app at my website www.iphoneflashcards.com (including a video) and purchase it on the app store at http://bit.ly/iphoneflashcards. It goes for $2.99.

    Please feel free to ask any questions here or give feature suggestions. I am working on a new version with automatic backup (using drop box) and that should hopefully be available within a few weeks.

    If you want a promo code, here's how: tweet about the app or write about it in your blog (include a link to the site) between now & Friday, July 31. Respond here with a link to your tweet or blog post, and I will choose 5 random people who have done so next Sunday and send you promo codes.
