Help me find this flashcard program?

About a year ago, I installed a freeware program onto my Dell Axim to aid with learning. Since then, the program has been removed and I've forgotten what it was called. I'm hoping someone out there can help me.

The program was for learning languages and memorization. I remember that data to be memorized was added to the program in pairs (i.e. "Ottawa" and "Canada"). The program would display one of the two strings (Ottawa) and then show a prompt to be clicked after the user had tried to remember what the matching string was. Clicking the prompt would display the matching string (Canada). If I recall correctly, several options were displayed where the user could enter how well the text had been recalled ("I remembered it immediately", "It took a bit of thought", "I was completely wrong", ...). The program would keep track of which were memorized less correctly and show those more frequently.

If anyone can help me find this again, I'd really appreciate it.
