Teacher Review

PTCB by Sprockit Apps is a flashcard-based app designed with the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board Exam in mind. The app comes with a full list of 1004 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 either 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.
On opening the app the user is taken straight into the main content of the app, with a flashcard taking up the majority of the screen and a couple of options spread out around the screen. This allows the app to make good use of the screen space, and still allows the text to be readable, even from a distance. Users can tap a card to turn it over, tap in the corner to flag it up for more convenient access later, and can tap the options at the top of the screen for further filters and the options menu respectively. The category filters are helpfully hidden off screen, only shown when the user needs them, along with a toggle switch to only show flagged cards.
In addition to this, within the options section the user can delete or edit the current card, and even add their own custom cards. This process is simple to go through, allowing the user to enter content for the question and answer, as well as categorising the card under one of the in-built categories.
The ability to add a custom category is also available as an in-app purchase, along with a multiple choice quiz and the option to shuffle the flashcards. While the app is perfectly good at what it does in its own right, these additional features would add a large amount of value to the app, making it not just a mostly static resource but a dynamic tool; a large part of the effectiveness of flashcards is down to their ability to be physically manipulated, shuffled, moved into piles and any other technique that will allow the user to play with the content until they can almost see it as a map in their mind. It is therefore a little disappointing that this content is further locked away, especially in a paid app, but it’s clear that the developers know where the value is for this type of app.
In conclusion, PTCB is a great resource for pharmaceutical students approaching their exams, well designed and easy to access, and with the additional content it could really reinforce the user’s understanding of the content, becoming even more effective. As a niche app, definitely worth picking up if the content is relevant to you.‚Äč
