KhatzuMemo Update: Back to Basic UI, More Stats, Extra Reps Fix

And the update shall be upon its shoulders! And its name, shall be call-ed, wonderful! Update! The migh… OK, never mind. KhatzuMemo has again been updated. Important new features:

  • UI: The UI has returned to its very basic roots. However, the default font size has been increased, and there’s also the addition of ample margin space that so many people had requested.
  • Stats: There is more statistical information now to help you analyze, manage and direct your learning progress. Mostly I just added median values since those aren’t as prone to skewing as the mean. More representative measures of central tendency: it’s the gift that keeps giving.
  • Date Display: This is minor, but…dates are displayed with proper singular/plural units now: “1 month” rather than “1 months”. A part of me couldn’t care less, but one of my CS professors brainwashed me into caring about this sort of thing.
  • Extra Reps: KhatzuMemo had the problem that it would offer you extra reps to do whether or not you had any…to do. The problem has now been fixed. Extra reps are now only offered if and when they exist.

    Thanks for the continuous updates to the tool! Unfortunately I haven’t been able to access it through my mobile phone (Softbank) since the update was completed. The login screen just shows up as a white blank screen.

    Hi again,

    I apologize. I read your update once more, cleared my cookies on the mobile phone and it now works. So sorry. My bad…..

    I was going to sign up and try it out, but the 6 character minimum on username and 10 character minimum on password deterred me… I’d like to use one of my usual low-security username/password combos since this isn’t like… banking info or anything. Any chance you could lower the minimums a bit?

    Love your site to the nth power!! Been a fan of it since December 2008. Anyways, I’ve been reading the archives pertaining to SRS. In one of your posts, you wondered whether a non-Japanese mobile phone would be capable of kanji input(or was it using KhatzuMemo?)

    Well, I don’t know if this info has been mentioned,but the Iphone 3G is capable of doing so. I can attest to this fact because I live in Miami, Florida. I currently own an Iphone…and tested KhatzuMemo to see if it would be compatible. So yeah it works!…

    I wanted this to work because, like you, I don’t want to lug around my 6lb laptop that only gets 2.5 hours of battery life everywhere I go. And the minor, maybe major in some circumstances, mission of acquiring an IME and/or Japanese text editor felt like a pain in the abstract as I don’t have fast-access internet at my house.

    So, My goal was to find an efficient and less messy solution…and the 3G Iphone works wonders!!!

    Keep spreading the knowledge, Khatzu, because at least I’m listening and acting on most of your tips…Brother, as a fellow L2 learner, you’ve got my deepest respect.

    With my Chinese reps I am always given 100 reps per day, but for some reason with my Korean reps I only get anywhere from 4-25 per day. I have about 200 Korean items so far, but shouldnt the number of daily reps be higher than that?

    The new style looks perfect. Simple, font is perfect size, everything is clear…makes it more motivating to do reps. Thanks!

    Just a point, in Mozilla Firefox 3.0.8, the progress in the progress bar is smaller than it should be, ie it looks half full at 66%. Is there something I can do to fix that or is that Khatzumemo?

    Something strange on the Add Items page. The English text is HUEG LIEK XBOX and the Japanese words are so tiny you have to squint. Is it just me?
