Study on the go, with ipod touch/iphone
« on: July 10, 2008, 02:05:01 PM »
I'm a huge fan of Stackz for pocketPC!! But my pocket PC is collecting dust because its no longer convenient carry it around, along with my ipod and cellphone.

I just read that there a new study app out for the ipod touch/iphone;
http://www.flashmybrain.com/

It looks good, but I've been patiently waiting for stackz.com to release something.

So is there any new information on stackz for ipod touch/ iphone? I'm considering buying something soon...

Cheers!

I am also a huge fan of stackz.  Please make a version soon for the ipod touch/iphone.

I have tried using the software the poster mentions.  Both their iphone and desktop version.  IMO it does not cut it.

Please make one soon.  I miss stackz.   I lost my smartphone in a cab one night after a big drinkup... doh!   So am reduced to using my ipod touch.

ho hum.

Thanks,

SoldierAnt

I strongly agree - the iPhone and iPod Touch are the future of consumer electronics.  Apple is the first to bring mobile computing to the masses by reinventing the PDA as a consumer entertainment device.  Meanwhile, Palm is all but dead, and Windows Mobile will probably never be more than a niche platform in standalone PDAs and high-end smartphones.

I work as a technical adviser to language departments at my University.  The ability to carry thousands of flashcards in your pocket in electronic format - and study whenever you want - is a huge benefit for language learners.  And Stackz fills this need better than any other program I've seen.  Right now, unfortunately, students can only use mobile Stackz if they buy a PDA, which can be expensive as well as inconvenient to carry around (and kind of nerdy).  College students these days are much more likely to spend their money on an iPod or iPhone.

Of course, we can't expect the developers to make a version of Stackz for every platform.  However, the iPhone/iPod is the biggest potential growth area for Stackz at the moment.  Not only are they popular among students, but Apple also has a strong presence in educational markets, which could translate into more sales of Stackz.  If an iPod/iPhone version came out, I wouldn't hesitate to push for its adoption at my university.

Developing for the iPhone is really expensive.  Day 1 costs around around $2500 give or take and then you have to use tools, languages, and APIs that are unfamiliar to most.

An application that is already running on Mac would be much more ideal.

For those interested in a flash card system for Japanese/Chinese, you can browse the following site from your PC:

Too bad the iPhone still doesn't support Flash.
