    The scheduling is all day based. We are adding cramming modes in version 2, which is coming soon.

    For now, in order to cram you should probably just use the non-lesson slideshows. Wrong notes are repeated a number of times, so it works a bit like a Leitner method.

    Have the cramming mode been added now? Can you explain me how to find it?

    Yes, on the Mac, there is a cram mode. Just double click any stack, and choose 'Cramming' as the study schedule.
    To refresh the due notes, use Notes > Update Due Status of All Notes.

    Will the cramming mode be available for iOS, too (or is it already?)

    The plan is to add it, but I can't give any time frame.
    If you sync with the Mac, the Mac schedules the notes. So if you are using the cram mode on the Mac, you are effectively using it on the iPhone too, though you would need to sync after each slideshow to get new due notes, which may not be ideal.

    Note that if you study a standard slideshow on iPhone, and mark a note wrong, by default it is repeated up to 4 times in the current slideshow. This is very similar to a short term leitner, where wrong notes are repeated often.

    Kind regards,

    Thank you for the answer, Drew!

    Unfortunately, this (and the missing cloud sync) is a "deal breaker" for me. I really enjoy the look and feel of the desktop client, but being able to revise effectively on the iPhone is kind of essential.

    However, good to hear that you are working on it, maybe I can switch back to mental case once the iOS app has been updated.
