Vocabulary is a vocabulary trainer for SailfishOS designed to be used independent of the language you want to learn.

Adaptive training mode

The adaptive training mode is designed in a way that prefers new / unknown vocabulary over known vocabulary.

Each vocabulary gets a priority between 1 and 100 which starts at 100. Every time a vocabulary is remembered correctly the priority gets reduced (default: by 3), for every mistake the priority is increased (default: by 10). For every priority point the vocabulary gets an additional chance of getting drawn from the vocabulary pool.

"Add vocabulary"-page could be a lot more efficient. Saving the new vocabulary could be handled with Dialog so you could just swipe it to save it. Also enter key press in the first TextArea should change the focus to the second one and not to the parent. Already made these changes to the app in my phone when I got annoyed adding quite few new words to the app.

EDIT: Ah, the app's source is on github. There wasn't a link in the description so I didn't realize earlier. I will contribute the changes I made and create a pull request later if you haven't made them yourself before that.

Hi, thank you for your multiple Japanese related apps. Years ago I used the great N900 and had this app as my favourite when travelling afew weeks in Japan http://thenokiareview.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/10/KanaTest-For-Maemo.jpg

It would be a very nice touch to bring the statistical approach of vocabulary to the hiragana and katakana apps. I realise it must be a very heavy task but that is something that would greatly benefit both apps.
