(i.e., like the 'randomized' order will remain consistent through out the entire deck)
Also, is there a way to create decks (or sections) within decks? This would be especially handy because typically I make a 'mega deck' for my midterms, which can be broken down into individual topics. Or, do I just have to create a deck for each topic? (Either way, its not a big deal, but the app would be 'cleaner' if you could have decks within decks.)
Lastly, how do you sync between devices? It would be awesome to have it automatically sync between my Note 10.1 and Note 2.
Thanks again for the responses. This looks like it will be replacing the void Flashcards++ has created.
In the settings you can choose to ensure that cards are not in-order when reviewed. Granted, this is a bit more relevant to things that actually HAVE an order (such as my primary purpose, language learning involving alphabets), but it seems to randomize. Maybe not the MOST random, but random.
I'm not sure about creating, but when you are importing, you can "nest" a deck inside of another. As I stated, I use Anki for language learning, and the source I use utilized Anki decks. When imported, they SHOULD import directly into the larger deck, but it does not for me. By dragging it into the larger deck, it will nest into it so you can review ALL of it, or just the smaller one. This is the mobile app, mind. It does sync that way on the desktop, too. Playing with it on here, you can also drag and drop on the desktop app as well.
You simply create an AnkiWeb account. You get the option when you install. By signing in, you can set the interval or triggers for syncing. I have mine set to sync when I close the app. On all of my machines. You can even set it to download the multimedia portions of the cards, or not. I know it works because all of the decks I sync use audio files with the cards.
You can even review online using Ankiweb (but you can't work with multimedia, just text cards), if you don't have access to any of your devices using Anki.
