Adding Features to Tiny Cards?

I just discovered the Tiny Cards app and am thoroughly enjoying it so far! However, I was hoping to find a place to request new features or at least find out about potential upcoming features. Since I couldn't find either, I thought I would post here. I hope that is all right as "Tiny Cards" is not one of the listed discussion topics. Please let me know if I need to move this discussion and where to move it to if so.

  1. I love that I am able to add multiple facts! Would it be possible to exclude certain "facts" from being a part of quizzes? They could be called "hints" or "trivia" instead. (I want to add information my students don't necessarily need to know which might help them understand a concept better, give a small amount of neat background information, or give them a helpful mnemonic - all things that fit on the card as "facts" but that I would rather not quiz students on.)

  2. A couple font formatting options would be nice: like bold, italics, and font size. But especially italics. I teach biology and would greatly appreciate the ability to italicize a word so that a student knows if it is the genus name without me having to clutter the card by typing out "Genus" or "Species name" every time. Changing fonts would be especially great for the "hints" (from suggestion #1 above).

  3. I would love to have the ability to create a group or series of decks and be able to lock decks in the series so that previous decks need to be completed first to unlock them.

  4. Along the same lines but from the student perspective, it would be nice to be able to create a playlist of decks. I have so many decks that I like, only having the ability to "favorite" them is not enough to keep them organized or to keep track of what I want to complete each day.

  5. I have heard of Duolingo being used in the classroom. Can a teacher track progress in Tiny Cards for their students? I realize this is a question, not a suggestion. But I would definitely give it a shot with my classes if this is/gets implemented.

Thanks!

I think this should probably go into the "Duolingo" category, since you're making suggestions. As for italics, have you tried pressing ctrl+i to get them, or putting things in asterisks?

The different "Duolingo" categories were specific to different languages: "Duolingo: Spanish" or something along those lines. So I would have to pick a language to put it under.

I also tried ctrl+i and a few other things. Nothing worked to display the word in italics.

I think you should try to subscribe to the main Duolingo forum... when you first go into discussion there should be a box to the right that says "subscriptions." Click edit and you can subscribe to Duolingo from English (the one with the heart and a small American flag.)

I see what you're talking about! I will go ahead and move it to the "Duolingo" topic. Thanks!

I wish I could organize the stacks in a deck. So the deck is Spanish, and stacks are 5 colors, 5 fruit, 5 objects, etc
