MiniPauker 1.1.1 final release is out! - Sun, 26 Sep 2010 14:59:16 -0000

The new stable version of MiniPauker, 1.1.1, has been released.

When you upgrade MiniPauker, stored sessions are NOT preserved. You need to migrate them manually into the new
version by exporting them into files from the old version and importing those files into the new one and
saving them as sessions.

The list of changes is too long to repeat it here, check the release notes. There are various usability improvements targetted especially at easing and speeding up the use of MP, such as the new Save & Quit menu. Sessions have been renamed to Lessons, long lessons are being loaded in the background while you can already start repeating/learning the first cards etc.

Works on the future version 1.1.2 will start soon.

Version 1.1.06 to be released soon... - Mon, 02 Aug 2010 09:54:43 -0000

MiniPauker 1.1.06 will be released in a few days. It fixes the look&feel and assignment of actions to phone keys (especially while learning).

HELP US WITH TESTING FOR 1.1.1! - Fri, 23 Jul 2010 09:34:15 -0000

The release of MiniPauker 1.1.1 is very close, we only need to test the last preview version 1.1.05 thoroughly to ensure high quality of the final release. Anybody's help is highly welcomed, even if only minor. Version 1.1.1 will be released based on 1.1.05 after 30 days without any new bug report being opened.

Download and install either the version MiniPauker_1.1.05-debug or MiniPauker_1.1.05 and just use it as you normally do, or perhaps try also the functionality that you normally do not use. You can download some sample Pauker files from . It would be great if you could also check that the Help is clear enough.

Tell us whenever you encounter some error or some strange, unexpected, or unintuitive behavior or text. Report any such problem via the MiniPauker's tracker at

Beware that stored sessions (newly named lessons) are not preserved when you install a new version, you need to export them into files and import those files into the new version.

See the release notes for 1.1.05 to learn what is new or changed.


New feaures release 0.30 - Sat, 23 May 2009 16:03:19 -0000

A new version with few new features:
* Added "repeat new", i.e. repeat unlearned cards = card's you haven't learned using the application. Good if you have actually learned them elsewhere as I often do.
* Used often with "repeat new", you can select in the preferences that you want the cards to be presented in a random order rather than always in the same (usually alphabetical) one.
* Support for reading files on Siemens mobiles that don't support the FileConnection API but have their custom file access. The file must be named lessons.pau.gz and be stored in the top folder.
* If your mobile doesn't support file access, you can embed a lesson file directly in the application - you put a file lesson.pau.gz into the MiniPauker.jar before you put it on your phone. You may do it by renaming the *.jar file to, putting the lesson inside and renaming it back to end with .jar. In this case do not use the MiniPauker.jad file at all or, if it can't be installed without it, change in it the value of 'MIDlet-Jar-Size:' to correspond to the new size of the jar in bytes (but it may be difficult to find out the true size).
* Added help with detailed instructions for various functions of the app.
* Hopefully an improvement of keys allocation so it should be easier to use the app.
* Reading of stored session loads first 100 cards and then continues in the background (loading in chunks of 100 ) so that you can start working with those loaded so far. Good for slow phones like Siemens CX65, Siemens ME75. You can check the progress in main menu > statistics.

Bugfix release 0.28 - Sat, 30 Sep 2006 20:24:26 -0000

- bugfix: highest possible batch no. is now 8 (not >8 than before)

- font color now black as wanted by some people.

Bugfix release 0.26 and 0.27 - Sat, 02 Sep 2006 22:36:33 -0000

0.26 Bugfix: Now Pauker files with lesson descriptor can be loaded.

0.27 Bugfix: Import/Export from/to Pauker/MiniPauker was working, but the cards were out of sync in terms of the time-stamps.

Release 0.25 - Feature Complete - Sun, 20 Aug 2006 19:10:26 -0000

MiniPauker is now feature complete - at least until it is stable. Therefore you can only expect bugfix releases for the next commming updates :)


+ feature: draw cards randomly.
+ feature: cards who are not learnt in "ultrashortterm" go back to be relearnt immediately in next round.
+ feature: settings side A->B or side B->A.

+ fixed UTF-8 (Sony Ericsson).
+ fixed progress bar.
+ fixed exception handling in background tasks (displayed now as an alert).
+ fixed umlauts.

+ UI polished
+ code cleanup.

Release: 0.24 - Wed, 16 Aug 2006 23:19:25 -0000

Finally I got around to fix some annoying issues:

- Bugfix: Import/Export works now - hopefully - on all devices which support the file connection API JSR-75. Exception are those (stupid) mobiles which need a code signing certificate).

- Feature: if JSR-75 is not available on the phone the im/export functionality is disabled completely which is not misleading users.

- Error log is now available as a "sub-screen" on the statistics page within MiniPauker.

- Enjoy! As usual the jad/jar and a prc for Palm devices.

Donations for code signing certificate avtivated - Tue, 04 Jul 2006 10:02:35 -0000

The latest phone generation (eg. Nokia S60 3rd) does support file in/output for MiniPauker's import/export functionality. Sounds good so far, doesn't it ...

BUT: I have to sign MiniPauker with a code signing certificate, otherwise file input/output just doesn't work and an Exception is thrown. I really do not like this idea, as it does NOT fit into an OpenSource project at all (the cheapest certificate, accepted by most phones, is 160$ per year:\).

So any donations will be used to buy such a certificate ! The sooner I got enough money, the earlier you'll have the chance to try a certified MiniPauker.

Sorry for this :(

Thanks for any amount. I don't want to spend 160$ on my own, but if we all together make this going it would be of great help!

Enjoy MiniPauker, all the best,

Release: 0.23 - Mon, 19 Jun 2006 09:05:47 -0000

Bugfix: UTF-8 was not correctly exported (again), so hopefully it works for everyone now!

Bugfix: OutOfMemory at exporting cards on some devices. This shouldn't happen any more, but export CAN take quite a while on some devices!

Feature: Ability to browse an error log. Java exceptions can be displayed directly on the device now (thanks to J2mePolish), which hopefully gives some real world feedback ...

Have a lot of fun!
