FlashBack - Free App
« am: 10. November 2014, 22:34:04 »
Hi gang,

 

I've just released a free Backgammon Flash Card app for Android and iOS devices called FlashBack.

 

Play Store link (Android); App Store link (iOS). 

 

FlashBack helps you absorb large sets of essential backgammon information by presenting flashcards according to an optimized learning algorithm.  Each card shows a question.  Tap on the question to see the answer.  Choose Hard, So-So, or Easy to rate the card.  In Train-mode, cards rated Hard will be shown more often than cards rated Easy.

 

Decks in this initial release:

    The Opening Roll at all scores in a 5-point match
    Two and Three Checker Bearoff cube actions
    Match Equity Values in the 9-point match
    Take Points (Live Cube and Dead) in the 9-point match

 . . . with more decks on the way.

 

Features:

    Multiple board themes
    Adjustable animation speed
    Practice pip-counting with Show/Hide pips
    Tap on a play to see it demonstrated on the board
    Swap position to view Cube Action from Doubler's or Taker's perspective
    Hints! Backgammon theory organized by topic

I hope you’ll check it out.  You can see a demo at my (revamped) website here.  But why demo when the app is free?  :)   

 

Happy to answer questions, give interviews, offer live demos at any time.  As you can tell, I'm eager to get the word out. 

 

I've also set up the new Fortuitous Press Forums, the best place to make suggestions and offer feedback. 

 

All the best,

Jeremy Bagai

Meint Phil Simborg seine Aussagen hier

ernst oder ist es sarkastisch gemeint weil die app von Jeremy kostenlos angeboten wird?

Das meint er ernst. Er hat allen Schülern eine Mail geschickt und für die App die Werbetrommel gerührt.

Hast Du den Link gelesen? Werbetrommel rühren widerspricht den Aussagen in dem Posting diametral. Ich habe mich auch gefragt, ob das einer seiner üblichen Scherze ist, oder ob der das ernst meint. Ich tendiere zu Scherz, bin mir aber unsicher.

Das ist ein typischer Phil Beitrag. Er hat in der Tat einen Hang zur Ironie und skurrilem Humor. Aus seinem Posting lese: Er kennt und schätzt Jeremy Bagai. Die App ist für ihn unglaublicherweise kostenlos (er lebt ja in erster Linie vom Unterricht).

Hier seine E-Mail:


An excellent learning tool:

Phil meint im Forum bei http://www.fortuitouspress.com dazu:

"I just downloaded the new app and looked at it briefly and it appears to be a terrific learning tool. Congratulations on your excellent work and “gift” to the backgammon community. Let me know how I can help support your continuing work and marketing in the future."

LG,
Susanne

Mir gefällt Flashback gut - es ist aber für alle weiteren Karten kostenpflichtig.
Arbeitet jemand schon länger damit?
Seid Ihr zufrieden?
