For Immediate Release
ROLLING MEADOWS, Illinois–October 14, 2003–Digital Meadow today announced the release of Studycard Studio 2.0, and the free Studycard Studio Lite 2.0. The new versions are the latest major update to Digital Meadow’s multimedia flashcard applications for Mac OS X and OS 9.
Studycard Studio 2.0 offers the ability to print individual cards or multiple cards per sheet, with the question on the front and the answer on the back. Users can even print on perforated card sheets available at most office supply stores. What’s more, by printing to a PDF file, users can view and study their cards in a variety of applications, including Acrobat Reader or Keynote, and on different platforms, including Palm OS.
The new version imports and exports text, CSV (comma separated values) and iFlash files encoded as styled text, RTF (Rich Text Format) or Unicode, allowing users to create their cards using virtually any text editor or spreadsheet application. The features allow for exchange between other flashcard applications that support these formats. By selecting a card to use as a template, users can import all their cards preformatted.
Users can also import from EDICT and CEDICT Japanese and Chinese dictionaries and use them to enhance their vocabulary. A variety of these free dictionary files exist on the web for downloading.
The new version has improved performance in order to facilitate importing and studying very large documents such as dictionaries. It can now smoothly handle 100,000 or more cards in a document.
