The flashcards work great on my IPad! I really like the super mix and the sound. Will you be adding an option to add users own cards?

Kudos to Eric for a job well done!

I'm glad yall are working on it! My iPad experience was not as good as Cheryl's. But using it on pc or mac is great! Keep up the great work!

Cheryl,
Good to hear you're liking them. But bear in mind that the current iPad version is more like an alpha. Eric's team is redoing the navigation and the flow of graphics so that the whole experience on the iPad really makes a difference. That's our first priority and as soon as that's finished we'll be releasing the beta iPad version (I'm sure you'll like it).
The next priority will be releasing another set of Flashcards which we've been working on, very different than the traditional ones, which will be a lot of fun--ideal for working on the go, on the iPhone or on an Android phone. And of course something we promised a while ago and haven't finished yet, which is a redesign of this community. We know that it can be much better and are working hard to make that happen.
And then your idea of user generated Flashcards sounds very interesting. Definitely something we need to look at carefully.
Hope this answers your question. And yes, kudos to Eric.

Griffin,
As I said to Cheryl, we're haven't released our beta iPad version yet. What you see right now is going to be changed.

Cheers!

Thanks,

Harold,

The Spanish flashcards are up and running. Go to the top of this page, and under My Commons, click on the flashcard link.

An interesting problem has cropped up: all the answers are being displayed onscreen. For example, I selected Italian 2 > lesson 16 > Old School > Linear. The first word in Italian is Prendere, and underneath it is To Take. Just for the heck of it, I switched to Spanish and saw the same problem.

At first I thought this might be happening because I upgraded to Firefox 4.0 yesterday, but the problem is also occurring in Safari.

I'm actually not seeing a link for Flashcards under My Commons. All I have is My Account, My Posts, My Points, My Subscriptions, and Logout. And yes, I did register. Still not seeing Flashcards though.

Is anyone else having the same issue?

I'm using the French flashcards on my computer. Sometimes "Session Complete" flashes up before I have even started. I understand that this is still a beta version. The flashcards are a great idea. Will they be available on CD-Rom? The whole Fluenz experience has been so helpful. I feel I am making great progress. Thanks

Judith,
Thanks for the feedback. We've sent your notes to the technical team to check up on that bug. We'll certainly think about incorporating the flashcards on our DVDs. Thank you again and congrats on your progress.

Judith,

Was this happening after you'd click the Go button? I.e. you would then immediately get the Session Complete message and then the page would refresh? If so, this should be fixed now.

After I make my selections from the drop down menus and I press the go button I am unable to start the session as there appears to be nothing there??? It almost looks like the dialogue box is off the top of the screen. The strange thing is that it previously worked fine. Anyone else having this issue?

Craig,
We're tweaking the functionality a great deal. It will be back up and the new version will be far better than before. The process has certainly been cumbersome but we hope the results will be worth the wait and hassle.

Mike,

If you simply refresh the page, do you still get this black screen?

You know what would be nice, but very difficult? One that uses voice recognition rather than typing. I depend heavily on the index cards as they are to force the content into my brain.
