The app is simply not good

I have to say I love the service but the app is simply awful. The offline feature doesn't work (it says it's all downloaded but I get failed to load image along with the text, and that's after I put my phone on airplane mode since even if there's a little signal when I'm underground it will try to load from that and will keep trying to load forever). And that's not to mention the fact that offline quizzes (maybe the most important feature to actually retain the information) is not supported.
Also I gave up on trying to use it on the iPad since it thinks you are trying to access the service on both your phone and the iPad at the same time, their solution was to quit one app completely before opening the other which resulted in me doing this dance of alternating quitting and opening until I simply deleted it from the iPad and made a web link to access it on safari. Anyway the app is basically a source of stress and frustration when Picmonic is supposed to be an aid during an already stressful period in our lives.

There should be a Picmonic for EVERYTHING!!!

I NEVER take the time to write reviews but I just couldn’t let the opportunity to shout to the mountaintops about this app! I just downloaded the app four days ago and will have learned almost half of my Nursing textbook. I am so grateful that I found out about Picmonic before I finished nursing school because now I have the confidence to really and truly understand the concepts that are being taught. I am literally so excited to learn every topic that there is a Picmonic for. I truly hope that they are able to expand into other topics beyond the medical field because I am going to be a customer for life and I will be sure to recommend Picmonic to very person I know. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!! This has restored my passion for learning.

Really great !

I’m happy that this has a few of the required nursing textbooks that we have to use in class. It has picmonic a for most chapters and serves as a great overview and tester of the knowledge provided within the app. The features of story mode and educational mode are also very cool. You can speed it up and slow it down to your liking! They also have several other ways to learn the material other than testing yourself from the book. They also offer nursing concepts and test according to NCLEX type question. But that $70 phew Chileeeeeeee digging deep into my pockets for that annual fee but can’t say it isn’t worth it so far!
Ps videos are on average 45 seconds - 2minutes ! Great way to sum up a lot in a small amount of time! Love it ! I recommend!!
