PocketStackz - New Feature Requests / card include slider
« on: September 21, 2009, 07:14:01 PM »
It would be great having the sliders for selecting which cards should be included, the way it is in Stackz for PC. Your programs are really great, I've already got spoiled by the PC version and don't want to miss this great functionality on my new phone! :D

Stackz - New Feature Requests / discrete points in the include slider
« on: September 21, 2009, 06:57:39 PM »
First: Stackz is really really great! Thank you guys so much!

I especially like the slider used for in-/excluding cards based on the current color mode. I'm mostly using the RepeatAdvisor with the option "double refresh interval on each success in level 5", because this is exactly what I want to do with mastered cards. There is only one problem: the slider is divided into ~15 discrete points. When I begin learning a new lesson, I have refresh intervals of several days. But my good cards are up at 150 days. So I can only select all the cards I have to refresh in the next 10 days together. However, in the first learning phase there is a huge difference between 10 and 0 days.

So far, I have thought of two ways to solve this problem: One possibility is to use an exponential scale: when cards are near to expiring, I can choose points close to one another in time, whereas cards far away in the future are mapped closer together. This could be implemented as a check on the menu that appears when right-clicking the slider. This way, most users won't ever notice it, but those interested in configuring the slider would find it quite intuitively.

Another (maybe even better) way is to slightly modify the Retention Manager dialog: The text box next to "Uncritical", which for the moment simply shows in numbers where you put the sliders (e.g. "0-11.1 Days Reserve"), could be editable, so you could write "0-1 Days Reserve" there and get the specified cards.

Only making the slider continuous won't solve the problem, as it would be very hard to select the desired points correctly (and I suppose you had a good reason for making it discrete...). Please let me know what you think about this.

Stackz - Bug Reports / crash on F5 in edit dialog
« on: May 27, 2009, 04:28:14 PM »
I'm still discovering new, cool features in the Stackz - Dictionary Edition. When I'm in the edit dialog (select some stacks and press F2 or choose edit from the context menu), I selected an entry which was written in Hiragana and pressed F5 (same with right click - Convert to Kanji) - magic - there is a small window with kanji propositions (each with translation) popping up. This is wonderful! When I pressed F5 while having another word (or the same) selected, Stackz crashed - Windows error report dialog. It is perfectly reproducible, I rebooted and restarted Stackz several times. The first time it works great, the second time it crashes. If I close the edit dialog after the first time and reopen it with the same (or other) cards I can again look up one kanji, it crashes when pressing F5 the second time (immediately, the small window doesn't get visible).

I hope you can sort this out, it would be such a great feature! I really love Stackz!
