Anki 2.0.44 Pick
Software Product Description
Anki is based on a theory called spaced repetition. In simple terms, it means that each time you review some material, you should wait longer than last time before reviewing it again. This maximizes the time spent studying difficult material and minimizes the time spent reviewing things you already know. The concept is simple, but the vast majority of memory trainers and flashcard programs out there either avoid the concept all together, or implement inflexible and suboptimal methods that were originally designed for pen and paper.
Anki's primary target is people studying Japanese, and Japanese native speakers studying English. However, it can be used to remember anything at all, and there are some users who are studying Chinese and possibly other languages with it.

Other Thoughts: A very good flashcard software, also very good for learners of Asian languages. It's open source and many free flashcard sets from other users are available on the homepage.
