About this app

Study for your USMLE Step 1, USMLE Step 2CK, COMLEX Level 1, COMLEX Level 2, or even your PANCE while on the go. Knock out your daily Firecracker MD, Firecracker DO, or Firecracker PA review tasks directly from the Firecracker mobile app.

The Firecracker app is great for studying whenever you can find the time. You can quickly move through your Today’s To-Dos review of USMLE Step 1, USMLE Step 2, COMLEX Level 1, COMLEX Level 2, or PANCE content while waiting in line at the store, while in-between rounds one the wards, or use the Read to Me function to listen as you head to class. Now, there’s no need to wait to sit in front of a laptop computer to practice case vignette questions in Study Something Specific – just scroll to the right to get started – or take practice tests on your mobile device in Take an Exam.

The app was designed to sync your progress and performance with your desktop usage. Questions answered in either will be counted in the other. Best yet, if you lose access to an internet connection while on the move, the questions you’ve answered will sync once a connection is reestablished.

The Firecracker app is intended to act as a companion to the core Firecracker MD, Firecracker DO and Firecracker PA desktop experiences. Your USMLE Step 1, USMLE Step 2, COMLEX Level 1, COMLEX Level 2 and PANCE daily review tasks will appear in the mobile app each day, and you can create additional ‘Get Ahead’ tasks if you’d like to continue burning through your stack of high priority questions. You will also be able to solve your Daily Patient Case on the mobile app.

The app is fine except for the bugs and design flaws here and there. One of the biggest things to watch out for is that it is not able to save your progress offline. If you do 50 cards but you leave that mode before the internet comes back then prepare to see them all again soon. Most of the other glitches are minor, annoying but don't really change the overall app experience.

The app takes 2 min to load after the recent update. When I've ran into graphical glitches, I tried to submit reports to the customer support, and there is generally no response. When I got response about an app specific error, I was told to just not use the app (use the website in the internet browser). One example, the images as seen in the screenshots do not load. If this was a direct function on a browser, we could clear cache and cookies, but this is a separate application. I want to like this app especially since my school has a subscription for the student body, but the user interface and customer feedback is dismal

In general, I love firecracker as a service. However I think the andriod app could still use some work. It's gotten better in recent updates but the interface is still clunky and occasionally some functions just straight up don't work. It's still usable but it's disappointing and unacceptable that the IPad app works so much better in 2019.
