SuperMemo World has quietly released SuperMemo 2008. Most of the new features are clearly designed for incremental reading fanatics, but there is one feature that might be somewhat useful to language learners: You can now input your sleeping hours and SuperMemo will try to estimate whether you are sleepy or fresh when you’re reviewing your items. If it determines you are sleepy, it will assume that your grades are below your normal ability, and will give them a small bump to adjust for the sleepiness.
In other SuperMemo news, there may finally be a way to edit items comfortably on SuperMemo for Pocket PC. Zaid Ahmad wrote to me saying that he has used a free app called MyMobiler to control his Pocket PC from his desktop, including copying & pasting text from his PC to his Pocket PC. This would mean that you can create and edit items remotely on your Pocket PC, while taking advantage of a real keyboard and software dictionaries.
