useful for solidifying knowledge

I only recently got the app and am currently studying for the bar but so far I have found the cards are great and app is easy to use. Some reviewers mentioned that there is too much information on the back of the card but I have not found that to be the case— I personally prefer having more information than less and it’s just enough material for each term to help me nail down the concepts. I’m using barbri as a prep course and don’t like the cards that come with their course but dont have time to make my own. These cards track the information and material in my course outlines closely and supplement very well.

Content is solid, app is not

I am reviewing the app, as the content of the material is very good in comparison to other tools. The app lacks a few things that make them usable consistently. First, there is no way to bookmark where you are. With hundreds of cards, this is critical for ongoing studies. Second, the highlight function is near unusable. The select and drag is not normal. Something is wrong as it takes tens of seconds to try and get the right area highlighted. Critical for quick studying needs. Again, this is critical to quick study and practice. Third, it cannot remember anything from device to device. Although it knows I am logged into my phone and forces me to re-login on my iPad, it cannot show me highlights from the phone or ‘starred’ areas? Finally, unless I missed it, I cannot go to an area with all highlights. You can access starred areas and notes from the menu, but NOT highlights. This means that you need to star every card you put a highlight for this to be reasonable.... Come on. I need this to be quick, intuitive and reusable for the depth of studying being done. As a key selling point, this app should be easier to use and have better design.
