Version 2.14 šŸš€

Just one feature this time šŸ™ƒ but super important

Code Block Support šŸ‘ØšŸ»ā€šŸ’»

it works with Roam Research, Markdown, Evernote (full notes), and Local Cards.

We use it internally to learn about Kotlin and Swift.

Version 2.13 šŸš€

Evernote Spaced Repetition Card (1-Column)

Most of our Evernote users rely on 2-Column tables to create their Flashcards. With 2.13, we are introducing a 1-Column table ā€” which creates a pure Spaced Repetition Card (a card without question). This is great for a variety of use-cases like reflection, quotes, highlights, etc.

Evernote Highlights

You can now use Evernote Highlights / 2-column / 1-column tables simultaneously in a single note. Each element of the note will be extracted to an individual card. You can use "Ignore .. " switches to control what gets recognized šŸ‘

OneNote Spaced Repetition Card (ā­ļø tag)

With 2.13, we are introducing a ā­ļø tag ā€” which creates a pure Spaced Repetition Card (a card without question). This is great for a variety of use-cases like reflection, quotes, highlights, etc. To use it ā€” tag the first line of your Spaced Repetition Card šŸ‘

Review Flow: Re-Review Red "After few cards"

Typically during the review flow, you would review your šŸ”“ cards at the end.

With 2.13, you can push cards "after few cards" so that at the end, there is nothing to re-review šŸ‘Œ

Markdown: Support for nested tags in one-liners

Now you can use nested tags with your one-liners. e.g. #lecture/lesson (Bear and Obsidian have support for nested tags šŸ‘ )

Sorting: Oldest First

We've added a new way of sorting your cards šŸ‘Œ

That's it!

Version 2.12 šŸš€

.CSV Support

Sometimes you want to keep things simple ā€” .CSV files are super simple šŸ‘Œ

You can use Google Sheets, Excel or even plain text files to create your cards.

See this Google Sheet as an example:

image

That's it. Three columns.

How to import šŸ‘† ?

  1. File ā†’ Download ā†’ .csv
  2. Open NeuraCache ā†’ import .csv

Markdown: Obsidian "Fold Indent" support

Many of our users use Obsidian "Fold-Indent" to structure their cards.

This is now correctly supported in NeuraCache šŸ‘Œ

image

Markdown: One-Liner separator (: or ::)

You can now choose between ":" and "::" for your one-liner separator šŸ‘Œ

image

Markdown: New card serves as - - - during import

Previously you would need to finish each card with a horizontal rule "- - -" for each card to be recognized correctly. Starting with 2.12 you can now use other cards as an indicator where the previous card ends. This makes a lot of sense in files where you only keep cards only. See example below šŸ‘‡

before 2.12

no need for "- - -" in 2.12+

Evernote & OneNote: "Ignore Full Notes" Switch

This should have been there a long time ago šŸ˜…

If you enable this switch, NeuraCache will skip full notes.

NeuraCache will sync only two-column tables (Evernote) and tagged cards (OneNote).

This is great if you want to re-use your existing notebooks/sections/tags but don't want to clutter NeuraCache with existing notes.

Version 2.11 šŸš€

Big update folks, here we go:

iCloud Backup

All your Local NeuraCache notes, along with Tags, are backed up to your iCloud account šŸ‘

All card progress from all other integrations is backed up on the iCloud (not the notes themselves).

iCloud backup allows you to move the data between the phones and ensure your data is safe for the future. We will also be adding an "Export" feature to store the data locally where you choose.

ā­ļø Favourites

This is a no-brainer šŸ™ƒšŸ§  You can favorite any card and then access them quickly via the study tab.

Share Text to NeuraCache

This feature has the most significant implications. It enables many new workflows that were not possible previously.

šŸ‘‰ You can share any text directly to the NeuraCache app

NeuraCache app will create a Flashcard or a Regular Card without a need to open up the app šŸ‘Œ The card will come back to you via Spaced Repetition automatically.

Remember all those insights you encounter on your mobile? now you can make them work for you šŸ‘

See this example of sharing a Kindle Highlight to the NeuraCache app šŸ‘‡

Queue/Deck Sorting

Another no-brainer šŸ™ƒšŸ§  Choose the way you want your Queue and Decks sorted.

image

Version 2.10 šŸš€

Mesmerizing Review Flow

video speed x 4

Our Today's Queue is key to great results. We wanted to create a mesmerizing (yet subtle) experience that submerges you in a review flow. We think we've got it. This version adds subtle gradient animation and sound effects šŸ”Š

Streaks

image

Streaks is another mental tool in keeping us in Today's Queue flow. Rules are simple :

Each completion of Today's Queue gives you one streak āš”ļø

Every seven streaks give you one frost ā„ļø

Frost can be used to skip a day without losing a streak

Add Local NeuraCache Cards with tags

image

Starting with this version, you can create cards directly in the NeuraCache app and group them using tags.

Lots of Design/UX tweaks

This version standardizes many design details ā€” how all screen modals behave, the coloring of links, buttons, etc.

Version 2.9 šŸš€

Today's Queue Daily Limit

Too many cards to review in the queue? This feature will help. You can cap the number of cards in the queue to any number you like.

If you reach that number, optionally, you can still review more cards if you have the time, and some cards need reviewing.

Design and UX changes

In this version, we have standardized a lot of UI/UX things. Improved the bottom sheet behavior and size, revamped the premium page, split Home settings into two, and many more. The overall experience is so much better now šŸ‘Œ

Version 2.8 šŸš€

Markdown One-Line and Micro Card Support

There are two new ways to add a flashcard in your markdown files. Previously only "Regular Flashcards" were possible.

One-Line Cards simplify the creation of atomic cards by compacting them into a one-line.

Micro Cards allow you to substitute the #flashcard tag with āš”ļø emoji (also šŸ§  is supported).

Both new types use the following format <question> : <answer> #tags.

A full specification with examples is available here:

Version 2.7 šŸš€

Latex Support

Latex support is finally here ā€” works beautifully with Roam Research and various Markdown editors like Obsidian, Typora, etc. Have a look at this video for a sneak peek šŸ‘€

ā™„ļøšŸ§  Marcin

Version 2.6 šŸš€

Roam Research: "Delete Missing Cards" switch

As we are waiting for the Roam Research API, this small feature allows mimicking Roam graph sync via the current import process.

Currently, when you export from Roam Research and import to the NeuraCache app, NeuraCache performs two operations:

  1. find and add new blocks
  2. find and update existing blocks and their children

Therefore, deleting a flashcard/spaced block in the Roam Research graph will not be reflected in the NeuraCache app when importing. You will need to delete the card manually inside NeuraCache.

The reason for this is that NeuraCache does not know if you are importing the whole graph via "Export All" or just a page with "Export".

If you are using the "Export All" in Roam, you can enable the new "Delete Missing Cards" switch in NeuraCache. When enabled, NeuraCache will remove cards that exist in NeuraCache, but were not found in the imported file.

image

This will result in sync-like behavior: creating/updating/deleting blocks.

ā™„ļøšŸ§  Marcin

Version 2.5 šŸš€

Markdown: Sync Folder

There is still a long way to make markdown sync seamless for all of our users (google drive, onedrive, dropbox), but this is a good start šŸ˜Ž

You can now specify a Root Folder on your iPhone for your markdown files (like Obsidian), ideally synced via iCloud (or some other mechanism). NeuraCache will remember it and sync your files a few times a day. You can also manually sync the folder using the "Sync Folder" button.

iOS 14 Support

We are keeping up with the future šŸ˜Ž

There were a couple of bugs (mostly visual) related to iOS 14.

All should be šŸ‘ now.

iOS 12 Support

We do not forget about the past ( this is a memory app! šŸ˜… )

NeuraCache 2.5 is available for iOS 12 (previously only 13+).

ā™„ļøšŸ§  Marcin

Version 2.4 šŸš€

Roam Research: Support for aliases in links šŸ‘Œ

All types of links should now be supported:

  • ![alias][image web link]
  • ![alias][uploaded image]
  • [alias][web link]
  • [alias](((block id)))

Also, you can now reference images from the web directly.

  • ![][image web link]

Roam Research: Embed šŸ‘Œ

NeuraCache can recognize embeds like this

{embed: ((block id))}

Now, NeuraCache also supports the default embed that is created via "/" key.

i.e.

{[[embed]]: ((block id))}

Markdown: Support for aliases in links + web images šŸ‘Œ

All types of links should now be supported, including these:

  • ![alias][image web link]
  • ![][image web link]

Older Updates šŸš€

We look forward to the future šŸ˜Ž

We moved to Notion to more easily build a knowledge base for you.
