New in Firecracker: Do questions by subject, reschedule questions & more!

Posted by on Jan 28, 2013 8:58:28 AM

Hi Firecrackers!

As promised, we're working full speed to get all the Gunner Training features you love onto Firecracker. Here's what we've just released:

  • Answer your daily Review questions by subject (Immuno, Biochem, etc).
  • Clear your daily Review and/or questions by rescheduling them for the future. You can spread them out over 7, 14, 21, or 30 days.
  • Answer all your Study questions, daily Review questions, upcoming Review questions, and Catch-up questions all at once, or by subject. Have a microbio test coming up? No problem! Use this feature to make sure you review just microbio material.
  • 3 ways to Catch up on material from days you skipped: 1) reviewing the related topics, 2) simply doing the questions you missed, and 3) adding your Catch-up questions to your review schedule.

Note: Study questions (formerly "New" questions) come from topics that you have never been quizzed on before. You will see Study questions when you flag a topic for the first time or if we add new material to a topic you have already flagged. Catch-up questions (formerly "Skipped" questions) are Review questions that you did not answer on the day they were scheduled.

But that's not all! There is a special bonus feature that we threw in there. The first 10 people who post a description of the feature publicly on our Facebook fan page or tweet us @firecrackerinc BEFORE this Wednesday, Jan 30th at 11:59pm Eastern Standard Time gets 1 free month!
