Firecracker


Firecracker helps pre-medical and medical students learn faster and remember everything. It is the most advanced learning platform for the next generation of physicians.

Firecracker quizzes you on the material you need to know to ace your classes, the MCAT, Shelf exams and the USMLE. Our platform synthesizes and condenses content from top sources into key facts perfect for studying. Taking quizzes not only shows you how well you understand the material, but also reinforces what you've studied. Most people forget 32% of what they've just studied. But don't worry, Firecracker will make sure you review something until you master it!

Firecracker will recommend you review something at just the right time — right before you forget it. This saves you time and tells your brain to move the facts from short-term to long-term memory. Well, at least that's what Harvard Medical researchers say.

Good app but... I've been with this company since the days of gunner training! They're very innovative, so I'm pretty sure kinks will get fixed eventually. My major complaint with the app is the inability to do just study questions as opposed to lumping study n review questions together! I'm forced to go to my laptop to do study questions and using the app for just review questions

Major improvements! Everything major is fixed and it's running great! Love it. Only things lacking are speed and a night/dark mode. (The white is harsh on my eyes). Those would give you 5 stars.

New Version - No Changes My previous review is in quotes - even with the new version, nothing has changed. Same old white, blank screen shows up... "I also own a Samsung Note 10.1 and a Samsung Galaxy S3 and am getting the same white screen problem mentioned in several other reviews on both devices. Cannot get passed the blank, white screen to access the app. Any way to fix this?"
