I was looking for a cheap way to study flash cards. Well, cheap, and not bulky, e.g. not paper. How brilliant would it be if there was a simple app (or "Active Content") that I could purchase for a few dollars that would convert popular sites like FlaschCardExchange or Quizlet flash cards to the Kindle! So I searched...and searched....and searched.
Nothing. No one is doing this. So many folks are going for Kindle Fire, or have some other touchpad that have plenty of flash card options. Me, I just don't want to carry around that much entertainment, with that low of battery life. I love the E-ink Kindle BECAUSE it is less powerful, more focused, cheap, and has a gargantuan battery life.
So I created one. Well, I had one of my talented developers create one. It was functional in his first 8 hours of development. It's rough around the edges, but so extremely useful, it can't be overstated. This is an amazing way to study a never ending source of flash cards. Any flashcards you find on Quizlet.com can be exported immediatly to .mobi, and transferred right into your documents folder on your kindle. That's it!

It's a free tool, so please send over a message if you enjoy using it. Currently, you can only use Quizlet flash cards, but later on I will probably add others, should the tool get popular.
Can someone please get excited about this? I am geeking out about it. This is easily the best method of studying on your E-ink Kindle. Otherwise, you are stuck buying the many one-off flashcard apps on the Kindle shop that are about $3 per subject, and not flexible.
