Hello again, Mr. Peter! Following your suggestion, I went on to check available options. I ended up liking anki because of some automation add ons that I found very useful. However, because of the questions that I had regarding supermemo algorithms I set to test myself SM-2 and a newer version (specifically SM-8) to try and see if the bold claims from supermemo were true, since I didn't find any previous third party comparisons and I wanted to know. I conducted a two month long experiment with a set of japanese words and I reported my findings as I went through it here http://anki.tenderapp.com/discussions/effective-learning/1258-sm-2-vs-sm-15/comments/ I don't know if it's of use or interest to you, but I thought it might be of some interest. This caused another user to conduct a similar experiment that's still ongoing. I'm waiting to see what his findings are.
