Question:
I am a network consultant. I have a Velo500. I do not know SuperMemo. Can your software be useful for my clients?
Answer:
SuperMemo is a program for everyone who needs to constantly remember some facts or figures. Windows CE version is supposed to provide everyone with "perfect memory" at the cost of limited repetitions/rehearsals that can be done while on a train, in a restaurant, while waiting in line or in other circumstances when you can pick your palmtop and spend 1-3 minutes on refreshing your memory. We hope that this form of learning will makes handheld SuperMemo very popular
