Hot Potatoes is a simple-to-use program which allows you to create an interactive multiple choice or short-answer text, jumbled-sentence exercises, crosswords, matching/ordering and gap-fill exercises that you can publish online.

The interface of the application is plain and easy to work with. Upon initialization, you can set a username and choose the language to work in.

So, you can select between 'JQuiz', 'JCross', 'JMix', 'JCloze', 'JMatch' and 'The Masher'. Each of these modules comes with its own range of configurable settings. They focus on the appearance, user strings, buttons, index, picture, links, HTML tables, media objects and grid management, among others.

Furthermore, you can alter the default source files and configuration file location, translate the interface, view help contents and a tutorial, as well as use the undo, cut, copy and paste functions.

The application runs on a low-to-moderate amount of CPU and system memory, is pretty responsive to commands and supports keyboard shortcuts. No error dialogs have been displayed during our tests and Hot Potatoes did not freeze or crash; we have not experienced any issues. Thanks to its intuitive layout, Hot Potatoes' features should be seamlessly figured out by users of any experience level. Unfortunately, the app has not received updates for long while.
