I think Supermemo is the fastest way to learn characters.
Really I do, but I made this thread to help people set it up on their palm, not to hype up Supermemo (too much ).
First take a look at www.supermemo.com to get an idea about how supermemo works.
Then go to www.mapletop.com to purchase your copy of supermemo for the palm.
Next you have to choose a Chinese OS for the palm. I just got done testing these three.
dyts.com/en/ (the CJKOS that many people are familiar with)
youbesoft.com/ (came pakaged with my palm)
pd.com.tw (Palm Dragon)
I’ve been using the YouBeSoft package for almost three months now. Today I tried those other 2 OS’s and it turns out that Palm Dragon is the best looking of the 3. So good looking that I’m going to buy that one even though YouBeSoft came free. CJKOS looked the worst. I tested the three softwares on a Tungsten T, so maybe the others look better on different versions of Palm (but I’ve read the Palm Dragon really is the best looking). You can test CJKOS and PD for free (not sure about UBsoft).
If you need help installing Palm Dragon (because it lacks English instructions) see: www.geocities.com/palmroc/palm_dragon.html (these setup instructions are for an older version of the software, but they were still helpful for me)
After you’ve bought Supermemo and installed a Chinese OS, the only thing left to do is create a database of flash cards which is really easy to do.
