Posted by firecrackerinc on Mar 8, 2013 6:57:48 PM

It's Friday in Boston and that's a beautiful thing. Beautiful for us because we have a fresh pile of snow out our windows, and beautiful for you because we have fresh pile of new features to share with you! Here's this week's lineup:

  • Better Navigation within Topics: Have you ever been studying a Topic in Firecracker and decided you want to study something from a totally different subject or category? We've made this easier for you. No longer do you have to go back to your Study Plan page or use the Search feature to look for topics. Now you can navigate to any Topic you please from within each Topic itself. Just click the Category > Subject > Sub-Subject breadcrumb beneath each Topic name. This will bring up a modal that will help you easily jump to any Topic you like.

  • Revamped Account Page: When we added the Reset Subjects feature we took the opportunity to redesign the Account page to make it a little easier to negotiate. We hope you like it!

  • Facebook Signup/Signin: Feeling lazy? Don't feel like filling out a signup or signin form? No problem. Just click the friendly Facebook button and you're all set. But saving some keystrokes is only the beginning. We're excited about linking to Facebook accounts because we have some awesome features planned that will make good use of this. Keep an eye out for more news on that front later.

That wraps up this week's feature list. We've got some seriously awesome features up our sleeves for the near future as well so stay tuned... Have a great weekend everyone! - The Firecracker Crew
