Friendly, intelligent flash cards?

I’m curious about Anki. I’m not sure why I’d ever need more than a small paper notebook, about the size of index cards? I suppose Anki is easier to carry, as it could live on my phone I guess? But writing things into the paper notebook helps me remember those things.

Anki limits how much you review. I have 10000+ cards across my decks but the program arranges them in such a way that I’m only reviewing the ones that are most likely to have been forgotten, which is 50-100 on any given day. I don’t think you can accomplish this with a notebook.

Also it supports more volume. If you’re tracking learned words with a paper notebook it will usually be in the form of “word” – “translation” – “pronounciation”. In Anki the common practice is to include full sentences that provide context, and sometimes even embed audio. For science cards I’ll add graphics as well. It is not possible to fit tens of thousands of cards, each containing multiple sentences or a graphic, on a notebook.

Thank you for these comments regarding Anki. It sounds useful. I can imagine having the full context of the sentence helps a lot.
