Studies is the app to help you master your studies — whatever they may be — on macOS and iOS.

Some things in life just have to be memorized. Facts, formulas, words, pictures, dates, procedures, even names and faces. Everything you do includes information that needs to reside in your head. Studies can help with that.

Studies is a study card app for the serious student. It's a tool to expand your knowledge, and it doesn't matter what it is you want to learn — medicine, law, language, history, piloting, fine art, music, martial arts — from simple day-to-day tidbits, to knowledge of life changing importance. Studies is an app to help you achieve your learning goals.

There are Studies apps for Mac, iPhone, and iPad, and they sync up beautifully via iCloud. Start studying in class with Studies for Mac, continue on the bus ride home with Studies for iPhone, and finish off on the sofa with Studies for iPad.

(Note: Studies was formerly called Mental Case.)

Poor performance with large decks

resident doc

I loved this app until I hit about 500 cards. To be fair, about a third of my cards contain a picture. At this point, however, adding a card started taking 10-20 seconds, which didn’t fit my work flow. The switch to Anki wasn’t easy but was worth it. Anki, unlike Studies, handles large decks without blinking. I’m now up to 20k cards, also many with pictures, and there is absolutely no delay in performance. I also like the ability Anki has to grade a card as hard/moderate/easy and it’s database-like features which automate making similar cards.

Overall, Studies served me well when I only had a bit to learn, but once I started to depend on it to hold more info, it let me down.

Extremely slow and keeps crashing.


This is the worst app to study with. It keeps freezing, keeps crashing, and takes forever to create/study notes. extremely decreases productivity. Mental case worked 100x better. Every since then, I have had trouble with this app.

This helped me pass a very important exam. ( I actually crammed) But, with the help of this app, was able to pull through! Thanks!
