There should be a Picmonic for EVERYTHING!!!

I NEVER take the time to write reviews but I just couldn’t let the opportunity to shout to the mountaintops about this app! I just downloaded the app four days ago and will have learned almost half of my Nursing textbook. I am so grateful that I found out about Picmonic before I finished nursing school because now I have the confidence to really and truly understand the concepts that are being taught. I am literally so excited to learn every topic that there is a Picmonic for. I truly hope that they are able to expand into other topics beyond the medical field because I am going to be a customer for life and I will be sure to recommend Picmonic to very person I know. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!! This has restored my passion for learning.

The app is simply not good

I have to say I love the service but the app is simply awful. The offline feature doesn't work (it says it's all downloaded but I get failed to load image along with the text, and that's after I put my phone on airplane mode since even if there's a little signal when I'm underground it will try to load from that and will keep trying to load forever). And that's not to mention the fact that offline quizzes (maybe the most important feature to actually retain the information) is not supported.
Also I gave up on trying to use it on the iPad since it thinks you are trying to access the service on both your phone and the iPad at the same time, their solution was to quit one app completely before opening the other which resulted in me doing this dance of alternating quitting and opening until I simply deleted it from the iPad and made a web link to access it on safari. Anyway the app is basically a source of stress and frustration when Picmonic is supposed to be an aid during an already stressful period in our lives.

The videos lack detail for USMLE step 1

I bought the subscription for step 1 and I am currently toward the end of my first year moving on to the second year. The videos are not enough detail. I love the illustrations and the organization with first aid reference page but the video doesn’t cover things in the first aid, it’s just barely touching the material. Not all the topics in pathoma are covered, this is annoying because then I have to go look for sources elsewhere to cover everything. Sometimes the examples and illustrations use more of a difficult language, my friend whose English is not her first language sometimes don’t understand some of the illustrations, I would suggest to make it little more simple so everyone understands. Please add some pathophysiology details to the videos, right now these videos are better for nursing school but the selling cover reads USMLE step 1. I don’t see the videos to be to that level yet, it needs major improvements and needs to cover more topics in north first aid and pathoma.
