Economics Flashcards

I realize this may not be everyone's cup of tea, but I thought it might be useful for those taking econ classes in need of a low maintenance study tool. Good luck!

Please let me know if you find bugs or have issues. If you see an error or would like words to be added let me know and I can take care of it.

There should be a save feature. When you return to the menu it restarts. With more work, this could be a very useful game.

That's odd, it should save locally and only add in words if you click reset. This worked for me, but I will look into it.

Very specific educational application. Sure it is not a game.
In Flash Cards I suggest to move Next button to the right side.
In Quiz you can colour answer buttons in some colour different from question background colour.
Ask someone for help with GUI.
Good luck.

Those are good ideas, I will work on improving it!

A perfectly reasonable revision game, lots of content, simple flashcards and quiz.
It would be nice to have a menu to help me navigate the flashcards, seeing as there are 540 of them, going through them all one by one, would take ages. Seeing as the little transition between cards takes roughly a second, then (assuming the cards don't appear in random order) it would take nine minutes to get through them all.
Some way of selecting the cards I want, would make this far easier to use. A search option, or looking through cards by category. So that a student my tailor their revision to a particular topic, or set set of words they find challenging.

In quiz mode, it seems the first option is very often the correct one, I managed to have a run of well over 12 questions all with the first answer being the right one. The way the answers are selected should probably be changed.

Those issues are helpful (but complicated from a programming aspect, but I'm working on it).

Sorry about the lack of randomness, it truly is supposed to be random, but I could force it by calling back the prior selection to force it.

Neatly done. I dont like how going back to the menu completely restarts it though. Also, the 3 options given arent usually related, so it's not much of a knowledge quiz, more of a "eliminate the obvious incorrect answers." I'd find it more useful if it were harder, but thats just me.

You're right, the quiz could be better, but my hope is to get people thinking about the word before looking at the answers. Future versions could call only "related vocabulary". This would be a monumental feat from the programming perspective, but would improve the quality of the app.
