iDoRecall (iDR) is a unique spaced-repetition flashcard app because you can create flashcards (recalls) that are linked to specific facts, concepts, formulas, and other nuggets of knowledge in your learning materials that you want to remember.

When you practice memory retrieval with your recalls, if you struggle with an answer, you are always one click away from seeing the source material at the exact location where you learned it so that you can quickly refresh your memory in the context where you learned it.

When reading a file in your library, you will see the following tools in the document viewer's toolbar which you can click and use to create a recall linked to an area of interest.

iDoRecall's tools for creating recalls
  1. On the left is the Pin Tool which enables you to drop a pin at your area of interest in the file.

  2. In the middle is the Highlight Tool. Use it to select and highlight text in your file. The recall creation form will open with the highlighted text pre-populating the A (answer) field.

  3. The tool on the right is the Marquee Tool for drawing a marquee around your area of interest.
