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.

Recent changes:
* Fix for some topics that had concepts shown out of order
* Sync the number of recalls across devices
* Additional options for 'Question Feedback' (found in the pause menu during a quiz)

Can't even do flagged study questions. And the correct review questions.

Does not sync The app doesn't sync well with the account. I have chosen the "normal mode" of learning on my account, but my app only seems to use the "legendary mode" for learning. Also, the app doesn't mix the questions from the different topics. It only goes in order so I don't answer questions from all my topics. And the number of questions to complete is different on the website and in the app.

Its ok I don't like that when I narrow down subjects, the app still goes through the questions in order. I want questions from all of fungus mixed together, not 10 candida questions then 10 of something else. If I only wanted the more specific topic I would have narrowed it down further. And still no offline capacity

Doesn't sync with pc No point in also having this app if it doesn't also sync with my PC.

Poor design, mediocre functionality The interface is unintuitive, unorthodox (does not follow any android design norms), and poorly responsive (takes a few moments to register your touch). Information on topics is disorganized and out of order, making it extremely difficult to study in some cases. Pretty much every aspect about this app needs some major overhaul.
