"Fave" and "Ignore" Cards Based On What You've Learnt

Essential Finance (Free!) also includes a Faves Deck to which you can add your most frequently used cards until you’ve learnt them; this is ideal for those terms that you keep getting confused about and need to keep referring to in order to remind yourself.

What’s more, the Ignore Deck can be used to hide cards that you’ve already learnt, and there is also a handy feature for shuffling the flashcards so that you can test your knowledge in a more randomized manner.
