The Mental Faculty Mental Case
Technology was supposed to improve education. Years ago, students took notes with pen and paper; these days, laptops are as likely being used for Facebook as for studying. A recently updated app called Mental Case ($15/$30) has a chance to change how students study with their computers, by reinventing the concept of flashcards. Instead of simple text notes and scribbled images on paper cards, The Mental Faculty’s app lets you create digital cards with images and videos—a multimedia experience, complete with structured study schedules.
Version 2.0 of Mental Case comes with plenty of new features. One of the most important is the ability to import flashcards from popular flashcard sites such as Quizlet.com and FlashcardExchange.com, but there are also new study schedules—including the all-important “cramming schedule”—and more. Mental Case also syncs with the Mental Case Flashcards HD iOS app, letting you study for a few minutes wherever you may be. It’s cool enough to make even college graduates envious of what’s possible today. To celebrate the upgrade, Mental Case is being offered at half price for a limited time.
