Pretty good overall! Firecracker is implemented with my school's curriculum which is great!
Ross Medical student and this app is great for not only learning the material but also quizzing yourself to gage your understanding.
This new version of the app is great, but the daily count is always off by however many cards that were done the day before. Also sometimes the number of flash cards I've done changes through out the day earlier today the progress bar said I had done 45 cars but now it says 40.
The app. feels a bit "clunky" and buggy at times. The interaction with images/figures seems like it could improve. Sometimes it feels like the figures provided in an answer-explanation are too general. It's a difficult task, but it would be interesting to see the FC team create illustrations that complement specific answers.
It locks my study mode in step 2 when I'm studying for step 1, essentially making the service useless. Have talked to 4 different people who respond as if nothing is wrong. Fix the problem and I'll happily delete this review Side note Great tool but UI needs serious work. Every time I close my phone my current study session is gone! And it is impossible to review already seen questions without starting over every time or spring all your review in one sitting. Anki has this figured out. You all should be anki first, then do all that fancy stuff like cases and references.
Very helpful for baseline review. I didn't use it as my only resource, but I always started here for exams and clerkships. The app works pretty smoothly once you understand the organization and it's always nice to have flashcards and questions on the phone for review in between OR cases or when I'm not otherwise busy. Used this for medical school, 2nd and 3rd years, mostly for STEP and shelf study
