Software wishlist

I’d really like a decent vocabulary trainer for my phone. It would be great if I could use the 30 minutes I spent on the tram to work for a quick training session. And it should be able to synchronize  its data and learning statistics with my desktop app. I like and use I GNU it (though it’s management of the boxes is not quite clear to me) for my desktop. I couldn’t find a proper app for the phone, the closest one was a java app which had massive problems with umlauts – really problematic if finnish is the language you want to train yourself in.
Seems what is missing is some sort of VIF – a vocabulary interchange format. Some common ground might be the XML format chosen by the KDE guys for KVocTrain. But honestly, single-char XML tag names?!
