This allows you to mentally test your knowledge of that character. You can check if you were correct by pressing anywhere on the screen and revealing the answer.

By activating "shuffle" in the options view, you will study flash cards in a random order within their decks. Any time you want to reshuffle the decks, all you need to do is shake your iPhone or iPod Touch to get a new randomized card order.
