Some ideas...

First of all, I just would like to say that Mental Case is an incredible app! As a first year med student, it has been tremendously beneficial & borderline essential to my doing well. I am extremely excited about the upcoming 2.0 release & all of its new features (most especially, the "learn by date" feature). Here are some ideas I have had:

  1. I have many large cases; all are >75 but some break 300. These large cases make for extremely long lessons. If there were a way to break the lessons up into smaller chunks, that would be great. (This was mentioned by another poster, as well, in "4 suggestions.)
  2. This may be a 2.0 feature but, could there a way to access flashcards through the mac app? Many of my classmates add flashcards to the site and better integration between the two would be nice.
  3. I'm a heavy user of the "quick snapshot" & "quick complete note" from the taskbar. I think adding crosshairs to the snapshot would improve it & also the ability to take a snapshot & add it to a complete note. (Recently, I've been using the screenshot app, "Skitch", to take a snapshot then opening a "quick complete note" and dragging the picture to it. )
  4. Often I use images as prompts for ID'ing certain structures, etc. Could you increase the size of those on the desktop & maybe add a "zoom" feature on the iphone version (maybe via double-tap or something)?

Again, thanks for making such a helpful program.

    Hi Alex,
    Think we have most of your requests covered in version 2.
    Note that double tap of an image on iPhone already does zoom it.
    Kind regards,
