Flashcards for serious students (was Mental Case).

Overview

Studies (was Mental Case) is a flashcard app for the serious student, with editions for Mac, iPhone and iPad. It's a tool to extend your knowledge, and it doesn't matter what it is you want to learn - medicine, law, history, driving, aviation, fine art, music, or martial arts - from simple day-to-day tidbits, to knowledge of life changing importance. Studies is an app to help you achieve your learning goals.

Features:
  • Study Notes - Studies allows you to turn the information you need to learn into study notes, similar to traditional flashcards, but much more powerful. Notes can include as many sides as you like, each of which can contain text, images, audio, and even video. You can create your own, or download shared sets from Quizlet.com.
  • Due for Study - Studies includes scientifically-based learning schedules designed to make the time you spend studying as efficient as possible. Set a schedule based on your goals, from long-term learning to cramming for an exam, and Studies will automatically make notes due for study each day.
  • Study Sessions - Once you have a set of notes prepared, you can study them in beautifully presented study sessions, which make studying less of a chore. Grade yourself as you go, and studies will ensure the ones you don't know very well will reappear more often in future sessions.
  • Statistics - Everything you study is tracked by Studies. This information is used to schedule notes for future study, but also to provide statistics and predictions on how well you know the material. You can not only see how many notes you graded right or wrong, but you also have access to estimates of how long you will remember what you are studying.
  • Selective Sync with iCloud - Many of us now carry multiple Apple devices, and having your data silo-ed on one device is a drag. Studies includes iCloud sync using the latest CloudKit technology from Apple. Add notes on your desktop Mac, and they will appear on your iPhone or iPad when you come to study them later. Even your study sessions are synced, so you can start on one device, and finish on another. You can even choose what you want to sync.
  • Sharing - Studies has a multitude of different file formats to share your study notes with others. You can export an archive that can be imported into Studies (or Mental Case) on another device. You can also import and export standard text formats like CSV and TSV, which are supported by many flashcard web sites.
  • Mental Case Migration - Studies is the next generation of the app Mental Case. If you have been using Mental Case on your Mac or iOS device, you can migrate all of your data, including the study history and scheduling, to Studies when you first launch. You should even find your data takes up much less space in Studies than it did in Mental Case.

Studies 1.7.1 I am testing the potential of your application, and I am experiencing the very consistent problem of Font Size and Alignment, which works randomly. It is really buggy like hell! I confirm! It takes me 72 seconds to open a group of Stack!

Extremely pleased that I chose Studies. Reasons include: User support so far excellent (though very little has been needed) Powerful User friendly Interacts happily with Excel, a really big deal, imo Unlimited "facets" - basically, these are fields or columns in Excel lingo (build in Excel, upload to Studies, bring all fields in) Import online Quizlet files No need to "master" Studies as one must master certain other powerful "flashcard" apps - developers put the user first. By itself, Studies is powerful; used in connection with Excel, one can do, and do simply, about anything.

To learn using flashcards was quite a simple and far-from-exciting experience for me. Not more. Mental Case impressed me since the very first time I ran it. This app put the flashcards in a whole new level. It combines a beautiful, well-polished interface with a number of excellent features. Firstly, you do not need to leave Mental Case to download card sets (stacks) from the thousands available for free on Quizlet and FlashcardExpress. Stacks can be grouped in cases and freely ordered. In second place, you are not limited to the traditional two-sided cards. Mental Case 2.x can create and handle cards with multiple facets, a convenient resource to complex matters. Card editing allow user to change fonts and colors, insert images and audio and even apply stack-wide format using templates. For each stack you can define a number of controls regarding the way Mental Case will exhibit the cards. A very nice feature is the Learning Schedule option, what lets user to choose between five patterns. Mental Case will keep track of your studies and can handle the card exhibition considering a target deadline or a spaced repetition (the "long-term learning", based on an algorithm). The cards you gave wrong answers or did mark with "wrong" will be showed again after a while until you get it correctly. As small pluses Mental Case groups the recently studied and added cards, the recent wrong answers, the cards not linked to any stack or the ones due to study. Although expensive for a flashcard tool, Mental Case offers much more than any other app I tried. It can be improved in some points, as quicker card edition or more controls when searching though the stacks available on the web. Anyway, the app is quite impressive right now and a real pleasure to use.

Slow approval and too tight control by Apple on Mac App Store resulted in very slow update of software to correct bugs and add featurees. This will definitely shy away develiopers from Mac App Store, apart from hefty 30 % margin charged by Apple This is the beginning of the end of Mac App Store
