April 12th, 2010 - SPB Software, a leading maker of mobile applications, has announced the release of SPB Flash Cards for Android - a learning software tool created to help language students expand their vocabulary quickly and easily. The application, enhanced by smartphone technologies including photos, algorithms and detailed statistics, is supplementing existing teaching methods to create more flexible learning for language students.
Flash Cards, available for purchase from the Android Market, provides great assistance to those learning a new language. They offer a different and more varied way to learn, through the use of mental agility exercises and images. Available on all touchscreen phones running Google Android and OS version 1.5, the application provides over 1000 cards in 15 languages including Czech, German, English, French and Chinese, all dubbed by native speakers.
"The cards are going a long way in eliminating the reliance on direct word-to-word translation," explained SPB Software CEO, Sebastian Schmidt. "Rarely does taking a word, translating it into the mother tongue and substituting it with the foreign equivalent, produce the best results."
With expanding working hours and larger families, people no longer have the time to sit in classrooms or in front of the computer. In this sense, the mobile has given people the flexibility to learn how they want and when they want.
"Learning is a very individual process which people tackle in different ways," Sebastian added. "SPB Flashcards for Android lets the learner take a step back from the 'one size fits all' approach and explore techniques that work for them."
