I've been working on a flashcards app for a few weeks now. I'm writing it in Mono (an opensource reimplimentation of C# that also includes class libraries for Gtk, Gnome, and other Linuxy stuff). The idea is that it'll allow me to learn Mono and Italian at the same time, because I'm trying to learn Italian in time for my semester in France this summer.

Anyway, since I got tired of coding, I thought I'd document my progress a little bit, for posterity.

The main window:

This screenshot shows the edit mode of the app. Right now that's the default mode the app starts in. Clicking the "Start" button in the toolbar switches to the currently unimplemented question asking mode.

Adding a card:

So far the only things that've been implemented are adding cards, removing cards, editing cards, and saving the list of cards into an XML file. Once I add the open command I'll at least be able to start compiling lists of questions.

The next step is opening decks of cards. Then, a first stab at question mode. Once I do that, I'll probably start working on my vision for the final interface, where the app keeps track of and lists all of your decks of cards instead of just letting you work with one deck at a time. By the time I finish that I'll probably be in France anyway.
