Teacher Review

PCAT by Sprockit Apps is a flashcard-based app designed with the Pharmacy College Admission Test in mind. The app comes with a full list of 1201 built-in flash cards with a question on one side and an answer on the other. Users can swipe through these cards and test their memory with side, as well as editing the existing cards and creating their own ones. Users can choose to filter their flashcards by certain categories and can flag cards to revisit later.
The app is very simplistic in design, there are no menus to trawl through and every useful feature or option is available in a single tab. There is also a large amount of content available, between chemistry, biology, vocabulary and necessary quantitative facts and figures. The ability to add your own flashcard is also useful and easy to do, simply needing content for the question, content for the answer and a category.
The app’s most useful features however, are locked behind in-app purchases. For 69p each (at time of writing), users can shuffle the order of the flashcards, create a new category for more customization options or even take a multiple choice quiz based on the content of the app. The latter two would be especially useful, as one of my main criticisms of the app is how linear it is. There are certain cards where the question requires you to fill in the blanks, but the card after may be the same sentence with different blanks. This is less likely to make the user think about the presented information than it is to encourage them to just memorize a set sentence. The multiple choice quiz would also be very helpful as a means of measuring understanding, something which this app does not otherwise do.
In short, this is a very useful app for quick reference and low-level revision, but will not help the user truly understand the information being presented. The app is very lightweight however, and fits its purpose to a tee, though it would be nice to see one or two of the optional features included with the app; the app is not free to begin with, and things such as a shuffle button feel like they should be basic functionality.
