Really love the app and using it successfully for memorising Japanese sentences.

However, I have a series of audio stories in Japanese (each 10-20mins) and I want to listen to one per day and cycle through the series until I've listened to each story a set number of times. I like the notifications ("10 cards due" etc.) and clearing them out is a great motivator for me. I've tried the spaced repetition mode but the cards tend to pile up and more than one card per day is too much for this deck and the other modes don't seem to have a one card per round per day setting or notifications. Is there some way to set the app up to do what I want?

Thanks.

Hi,

Notifications are only supported with Spaced Repetition mode. Spaced Repetition mode doesn't seem appropriate for your purpose.

If you are using Android, my app can't pause audio (yet), which might be a big problem. For iOS, you can swipe up or down on the sound-play button to bring up a more advanced screen that will allow you to pause and loop sections.

Just using "Ordered" card-order mode might be appropriate. You can keep track of either "review count" or "streak" (number of times in a row you've gotten a card right) to gauge progress. Note that answering wrong will reset streak to 0. If you like streak but don't want the streak to potentially drop so much on wrong answer, use "short term goal" card-order mode and see options there to drop streak on wrong by desired amount.

If you want to limit cards, go to Deck Options > Cards to Study. For example, you can show cards that have a review count less than 5, so that once you've reviewed a card 5 times it will get removed from study.

For notifications, you might considering using another to-do type app for that.

Thanks for the quick reply. I realise that a flashcard app is probably not designed to do what I want but thought it couldn't hurt to ask. I just really like using your app and it would be nice to keep all my practice material in one place.
