Teacher Review

MCAT by Sprockit Apps is a flashcard-based app for the Medical College Admission Test. The app comes with a full list of 2028 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 the question or the answer, 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 suffices as a simple, lightweight tool for revision, and can be extended through in-app purchases which grant the user the ability to shuffle the flashcards, create new categories for their flashcards and test their knowledge of the content of the flashcards through a multiple choice quiz. These features would add a lot of extra value to the app, as users may get too familiar with the order of the cards as they are, and the linearity can lead to the same question being asked multiple times but in slightly different ways. Alongside this, the multiple choice quiz would be a great way of measuring the user’s success with the app and prove that it is truly working.
The app makes good use of space, keeping the main controls tucked in the corners of the screen, with a sliding panel for choosing which flags and categories to display. There is also an options section where users can choose to delete or edit a card or add a new one. Adding a new card is nice and easy, simply giving the user a template for a two-sided flashcard which they can fill out and allowing them to file it under a category.
MCAT is a great reference and revision app, and will be useful for anyone in the lead up to their exams. Studies have shown that flashcards, when used properly, can engage a student’s active recall and can be a very effective method of study. However, one of the factors behind this is that the content can be moved about and organised, and it’s a little bit of a shame that the most useful functions that this app could offer are locked behind a pay-wall, especially for a paid app. That being said, this app is very simple, very quick, and is likely to fit your needs out of the box.
