Quiz Cards is designed as an aid for studying and learning. It is a Java application that can be used to create sets of flash cards and then quiz yourself with them.
Quiz Cards has the following features:
- two-sided cards are collected into stacks
- each side of a card may contain either a picture, text or two strings of text (e.g. a meaning of a word and an example using that word)
- different types of cards may be mixed within a single stack
- the images or text of a card may have a sound file associated with it and you can quiz yourself with those sounds
- stacks can contain cards sets which are used to organize the cards in a stack into different groupings
- you can quiz yourself on the cards in a set or on all the cards in the stack
- as you learn the information on a card during a quiz you can drop it from the quiz and concentrate on the remaining cards
- cards can marked "Learned" and you can quiz yourself on Unlearned, Learned or All cards
- XML is used as the format for the stack file
