Fullscreen flashcard program

image I’ve put together the first version of a simple program for displaying flashcards in fullscreen, mainly as an exercise in WPF but also because its damn useful for all sorts of teaching environments. Flash cards are simple text files that anyone can edit โ€“ just load them up and hit spacebar to cycle through them. โ€œBig Flash Cardsโ€ is now at version 0.1 ๐Ÿ™‚

It supports Unicode so is perfect for Japanese lessons, for which I designed it. Example flash card files are included โ€“ they are very easy to edit and are simple text files. This is a very early version so there will be bugs.

Download Big Flash Cards (117kb zip)

Vista and Windows 7 users: just unzip and run BigFlashCards.exe
Windows XP users: You need at least version 3.0 of the .NET Framework. Download it here.

For those that care, this was developed in Visual Studio C# 2008 solely on a tiny little Dell Mini9 laptop.

  1. Really neat program!

    Been looking for something like this for awhile, beats carrying around flash cards. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Suggestions:
    – Make it so you can choose for it to either go down the list or random.
    – Ability to toggle full screen or normal screen.

    Keep up the good work!
