    Default how to find flashcards for istudy ?

    Does anybody now if there is some kind of free repository of prefabricated flashcards? I googled and found flashcard exchange, which is free for online use, but for downloading you will have to pay a fee. Anything else?

    If you're interested, I've actually written a quick script that, if you feed it the words on, say, http://www.flashcardexchange.com/fla.../533386?page=4 , it will turn them into the correct format for istudy. I'd need somewhere to upload it though...

    (you highlight everything from "to send" to "zwemmen" and paste it in, and then the other pages as well if you'd like, and hit run, and it'll do the rest - there's quite a lot of whitespace it has to sort out, which is what this is for)

    I was looking for ways to make it work also yesterday for revision.

    What you can do is make two plain text files (.txt, no formatting etc) called answers.txt and questions.txt

    Each questions is on its own line, like wise for each answer.

    EG.

    Questions.txt

    what is 1 + 1?
    what is an iphone?

    Answers.txt

    2
    A phone made by apple


    :p

    If you look for iflashcards on google code (same as istudy) then you can find instructions there.

    PS. if you email flashcardexchange and ask them for the iphone format the'll say what i said for free.

    I know this is what the iflashcards site says; rather I was actually looking for a way to automate the process of extracting a set of 'cards' from the flashcards website rather than having to copy/paste and then fiddle all the whitespace etc for myself. In the end, I've gone for a different method to the one I mentioned above, but it works quite happily. Now comes the hard bit - actually learning stuff

    Unhappy

    i would like to see that script, was thinking about doing something myself, but i thought: ask first...

    why don't you upload the script on the usual sites? rs or ff? that 's free at least or pm me if you can send it via mail

    Stupid internet connection - give me a minute and I'll put it up on RS

    Oh, of note, I changed the method for this one - the other method was too dodgy. Copy the source code for the "View Card List" page into the input box and hit run.

    No problems.

    Ah...hmm, I didn't consider that case as I've only looked at a couple of pages. If you point out a page where this comes up, I'd be happy to take another look at it

    i just paid for it.

    They have made an istudy version.

    at first they were having trouble with page breaks (aka when the person hits "enter/return" in the answer or question) but I think they either fixed that or are working on it.

    I will let you know if they fixed it this weekend.
