Creation of cards
Easy to create packs of cards – key features include:
Playback of cards
Moving between questions and answers
The user is able to view the card between questions and answers by flipping the smart phone or tablet forward and back, or by touching the screen when the cards are in the play mode.
Moving between the individual cards
The user is required to slide their finger from right to left to move forward and left to right to move back through the cards on the screen.
Card Template Layouts
The user can select from 17 template layouts to create a variation of flashcards within the question and answers cards. A number of templates have an area to insert a photo, image or video.
The card template layout remains consistent throughout the pack. If you select to change the text or border colour palette, the change will be consistent throughout the pack.
To change the template text, just click on the text and change it, then press done. You will note that all the text in the pack will have changed.
Users can select from a range of fonts, font sizes, colours and symbols.
Images, sounds and videos may accompany each individual card to enhance the visual effect of the cards.
Mathematical and scientific symbols are just some of the wide range of technical symbols available within the app.
Many symbols will register with the text to speech function, for example °C is said as degrees Celsius, m3 is said as cubic metres.
Images : Library or Camera
Images can be selected from your personal device library or photos can be taken live with a camera. Downloaded royalty free or purchase images from image photo providers on the Internet.
Images may be subject to copyright. Confirm your rights before uploading any image, picture or photo.
During the creation of the cards the user can record their own recordings for a period of up to 30 seconds on each card throughout the pack.
The user may create their own short 30-second video for personal use, or for presentations on all cards where the photo icon appears.
The user can insert a YouTube URL in the image /video section of a card.
Reader timer and Question Pause Bar (Auto play mode)
Removes the auto sequencing of the cards, allowing the creator to set the reading time.
This allows the user to extend the time between question and answer in auto play.
Reader timer and Question Pause Bar is a pop up function lasting 3 sec, re touch screen to activate.
Other visual monitoring methods
You can also link your device to a TV and hear and view the flash cards selected while relaxed or doing chores.
Sequential or random play mode.
Before playing the pack of cards the user can set the play mode in sequential or random mode.
Play mode settings
Play manually – you control the card viewing.
Auto play – plays the cards without touching the screen.
Auto play and loop – this continues to repeat the card pack.
The user can select a play mode that allows a manual movement of the cards between Question and Answer and other packs of cards; or an auto play mode being hands free, allowing you to put on your headphones and listen to the pack or view the pack from a distance.
Mute Sound recording
This function allows the user to switch on or off the personal recording that has been created on individual cards.
Text to Speech
This function allows the user to switch on or off the text to speech function.
Auto- show question only
This function allows the user to self-test the knowledge gained by only hearing the question and not the answer.
Male /Female voice
This function allows the user to choose between a male or female voice while using the text to speech mode.
This function allows the user a preset count down time before the card commences to play. This allows time for the user to position the device in their pocket and listen with headphones or place on a table and link to a larger TV or monitor.
The user is required to create a Dropbox account. This will allow the user to store and share the packs of cards created.
The latest encoding program is utilised to protect the card packs between the device and server.
A pack of cards that have been created remains the property of the creator. The editing on the cards can only be changed through an admin password created by the pack creator.
Other users of the pack can only view the card packs.
When the cards are shared with others via a share code, a password can be installed to protect the pack from multiple downloads. The quantity of packs can also be selected for downloading, this provides further protection for the card packs.
Once a created pack of cards has been downloaded to a secondary device, the card pack can only be viewed, not edited.
The card pack or packs that have been shared can’t be modified or pasted onto other users of the Flip Flash Cards app. Only the creator of the pack can authorize the number of packs available via the share code and password.
When the creator transfers their work from their device to Flip Flash Cards web server or Dropbox, the set of cards are changed into a format that prevents any changes being made to the card pack questions or answers and remain the intellectual right of the creator.
The flashcards can only be altered through the authority of the creator and admin password.
All information provided to Flip Flash Cards is not open to the public domain. Your information submitted through the lodgement of your pack or packs via the Flip Flash Cards web store will be viewed and filed by Flip Flash Cards Pty Ltd. The applicant is able to make changes through various checks and passwords and cannot be altered or changed once moved out of the creator’s device, e.g. sent to the server or posted online (?).
Web or Email Links
When creating a pack of cards the user can select through the link on the card and insert a web address or email address. This allows others users to view the creators web site or forward an email.
When a new user has downloaded the pack and plays it, the user can press on the image icon and this will take the user to the creator’s web page or produce an email page to write to the user.
Once the pack of cards has been uploaded to the server, the owner of the created pack is given a share code. This share code will appear at the bottom of the card pack icon only. If the creator wishes to share a pack to friends they only need to provide the user with the share code and, if created, the password.
Post Packs of cards via Share Code
The creator can post the packs of cards created via Twitter and Facebook or select to email the share code to individuals or work groups.
Packs can be branded with a logo, a link and text. A selection of background colour palettes are available.
The Flip Flash Cards app will be distributed throughout 23 countries.
