I have two iPads (one for work) and an iPhone that I use mental case on. I am a C-17 pilot and I use it to study a lot of our regulations and technical data. I was referred to your app from a fellow C-17 pilot who had already created several cases for study, that he sent to me via bluetooth. I have been adding to the library of study material but have found it very tedious creating new cases on my iPad. I have a PC because much of the government software I am required to use while on the road flying is not compatible with iOS (go figure right). It would be helpful if I were able to have a very basic interface on my PC to create cases for study on my iOS devices since it is much easier to type, copy & paste, etc. on a laptop than it is on an iPad or iPhone. Can you guys help? I would be willing to pay for such an App or program if it were available for sure. If it helps I have a Samsung laptop, maybe it could be offered via their "App World". Thanks for the help.

    Create an account at Flashcardexchange.com. I create my two-faceted cards using a free Google Drive account to create and store spreadsheets. Column A will be the first facet, and Column B the second facet. I then log in to flashcardexchange and click on Create Flashcards, name it, and tag it with a unique word that will let me find it easily even when not logged in. Set the Access at "Public". Scroll down and click on import options. A box opens up. Highlight and copy the fields from the spreadsheet and then paste them into the box. Click on the green Import Data Button. The cards will populate and you can edit them if necessary. Then scroll below the cards and click on the green "Create Set" button.

    Now that you have the set on Flashcard Exchange, on your mobile mental case app (premium) tap on Flashcard Exchange, and the tap on My Public Notes. The notes you create will be there. Tap on the set and then tap on Download Stack. The stack will now be on that device's mental case library. Then you may need to go into the library, tap on edit, and then the stack to make any adjustments to the template and scheduling.

    This way, the cards are created on a PC, but you study the on your iPad or iPhone.
