What's New in Version 1.0.3
Jasper updates v8 OLP
Inferior to other mobile Q-banks.
If you are buying a qbank for its mobile capabilities, this certainly is NOT the one to get. For starters, the app has not been updated in two years by kaplan. The general feel of the exam is that it is a Cold War relic in that it is clunky, old, and you wonder how people ever used it on a daily basis. (My guess is that nobody uses this on a daily basis). It takes several minutes for exams to load. You cannot pause an exam and take another exam. The aspect ratio of some questions is wonky, it lacks many of the features UWorld has, much of the time my paused quizzes never reload and I'm standing there like an idiot in a white coat draining battery and cursing out my phone.
In sum, I feel like Kaplan has this app solely so they can advertise that they have an app, not to actually help learners in any meaningful way. If you bought this qbank for the mobile capabilities you should demand your money back.
Could be improved...
I love the kaplan qbank, but this app could definitely use some improvements! First of all, it would great if they could develop an iPad version... Secondly, I don't mind not being able to review the questions on the app, it would be nice but would probably take up quite a bit of space. I would however really like to be able to somehow mark questions that I want to review later! It's very annoying to have to reread every question on my computer to find the ones I want to take notes on or review at a later time. Needs an update pretty badly! The app is rough at best.
My two complaints (like other reviewers) is the disconnect between the desktop version and the iPhone app, especially with regard to "marking" questions. You can do so during a single block but then all the marked questions somehow disappear when you review the test on the desktop version. Very inconvenient.
Also, it'd be nice to see how many questions for each category are available (total and unused). When your using the Qbank to study for tests, it's nice to plan ahead to get through all available questions in a particular specialty/organ system.
Please update this app soon!
