Still issues

I love the concept of being able to do questions during a commute, walking the dog, etc. The content is good but there are still app issues. One of the biggest annoyances is the speed resets to 1x each question even though the indicator still shows the speed from the last question (2x). In that case to get back to 2x speed you have to cycle through all the speeds .5, 1, 1.25, 1.5, back to 2x. It gets super annoying when each question is only a few minutes long meaning every few minutes you have to interact with your phone. One of the biggest appeals of audio questions is hitting play and not having to interact with your phone. Having to change the speed each question or settle for 1x is more than annoying for those of us who have become accustomed to lectures and videos at faster speeds. Please fix this issue and I’ll change it to 5 stars. I just started using the app but it seems to be a great bang for your buck if you can get some extra, easy studying done during your commute.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for the feedback. The more, the better. We’ll add it to the list of fixes for the next updated version (should be about a week). But yeah, that’s annoying AF 🤦‍♂️

Can’t do med school without this

The Audio Qbank is probably my biggest med school resource. I used it for Step 1 and now I’m using it for shelf exams and Step 2 CK studying. The question bank is actually pretty big and challenging plus it’s allowed me to visit my girlfriend on the weekends without feeling guilty about wasting time driving. 10/10 recommend

Love ITB

Great content! Love to use this while working out. My only recommendation would be to make the qbank scripted and add a search function in order to quickly access info. Many times I’m like “I remember listening to something on ITB” but it’s hard to retrieve the info efficiently.
