TheBrain & Anki: organize and remember

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KIeleTsCDP4]

It’s both important to organize your thoughts and remember new things. For example, wouldn’t it be great if you could just take a quick easily searchable note of the new recipe you want to try out and the key ingredients you want to add instantly when it occurred to you? And how about learning Spanish by trying to learn a few new words each day and taking a quick look at the word which you are just not able to recollect after 2 or 3 days? We found two multi-platform free tools those help people organize their stuff the way they want or train themselves remember new things using flashcards.
