I'd pay for an app that has the practical audio-visual chinese vocab and grammar points in flashcard form for android. Just saying.

Those cards are pretty neat. I don't have an android mobile phone. I still prefer flipping cards anyway. There has been a lot of work devoted to creating the original set. I know Truant had a very bad turn of events. I also know you don't think it is worth updating. If you nor Truant can make this concept work for money, please I beg of you.... release these cards and or the original PDF files in double sided printable format to the public domain.

I still would buy them, but if you don't want to sell. Don't let all that work die without helping anyone. Thanks.

No, sorry. The cards were made up in contact sheets that are not suitable for use on a smartphone. Back in the day Truant made a small sample of cards in a one-card-per-page pdf, but this was never done for all the cards. If you're looking for the raw data, then this link has all five books' worth in machine-readable format. It's easy to convert that data for use with any number of flashcard programs, and it's more up-to-date than the data we put together for the original flashcards.
