Great study app

Bottom Line: Flexible flashcard app that makes studying easier and more efficient. Seems stable and mature, I haven’t had a single problem yet.

For me the most important part of studying is putting together the concepts in a way I understand and then reviewing that until it’s locked in. The best way I’ve ever found to do that is to make flash cards or study sheets. Mental Case 2 helps me do this on my computer making the whole process more efficient and flexible. I’m using it to study languages and mathematical concepts alike. I don’t think there is any limit to what you could study with this.

-Multi-facet flashcards, make a five sided flashcard to study a verb, its meaning and its various conjugations
-Programmed study periods - it keeps track of how often you study and what you keep getting wrong
-Simple online backup to dropbox or iCloud - don’t have to worry about losing those carefully constructed flahs cards
-Also syncs with iPhone app which seems nice though I don’t have an iPhone


So I used this for a while a year or so ago then came back to it. I have had no end of confusion until I figured out that there is a new version of this app… Mental Case 2. This new version has a new icon on the phone that does not match the icon on the MAC. This really seemed like something that would not have to be looked out for. Amazing the amount of trouble that can be caused over the silly things. Why would you make the Mental case 2 Mac APP and the mental case 1 ios app icons match but not the MC2 and MC2??

I tried them all!

I have tried several flashcard software, but this one is the best. It takes ALOT of getting used to the interface, but you get the hang of it eventually.
On the ios, I really like the flexibility and card tracking of Flashcards Deluxe, but it doesn’t have an osx component; Suprememo doesn’t have an ios component, so I’m sticking with Mental Case until either of the other flashcard software “fixes” their deficiency.
