Hands On With Anki Overdrive

The item(s) you want to add may not be available for purchase from your Wish List in the future.  We had access to the Speed kit (£20), which includes several more straights, the Collision kit (£30), which adds a crossroads for crash-based mayhem, the Launch kit (£30), which adds jump and landing sections, and a Corner kit (£20), which includes several extra corner sections.<img src="https://image.cdn.ispot.tv/ad/7z4V/ankidrive-battle-cars-small-3.jpg" width="252" />

It is very natural to want to pause the scheduler, so that you come back to find Anki in the same state as you left it. However, a pause feature would actually do more harm than good, as while it's easy to pause a computer program, it's impossible to pause human memory.

I was also concerned about this issue, and have instead taken a nice medium path: After changing a password, I would try to log into the service at approximately the same intervals the Anki algorithm dictates until I feel the interval is long enough (i.e. I can reproduce it after two weeks with no reminder, which corresponds to a forgetting curve of about a month later).

The default setting of 20 minutes tells Anki that cards should be shown early if they have a delay of less than 20 minutes and there's nothing else to do. If you set this to 0, Anki will always wait the full delay, showing the congratulations screen until the remaining cards are ready to be reviewed.

Moving on from the pleasingly original concept showcased in last year's Scalextric-style Anki Drive , Overdrive brings snap-together track, new cars and game modes to the franchise in which real-life vehicles automatically steer themselves around the slot-less track as competitors use the app to hit the perfect racing line, control speed and trigger virtual laser fire, EMP blasts or drop mines.
