Hi Clemens,

You should not use "Learn more", under normal circumstances.

Before an exam, you can use the cram mode.

To clarify, the problem is a mistake in the OP's understanding of SRS and memory, not a defect of Anki(Droid). You aren't supposed to review early because not only does it wreck havoc on Anki's intervals but also because it can weaken your memory.  Remember that memories are replaced on recall and reforged with appropriate strength, one strong factor of which is the time since last recall.
