More options than Right/Wrong

Hi, I'd just like to make a suggestion for Mental Case.

It would be really helpful if there were more options for grading yourself on a flashcard than right or wrong. Many of the answers in my flashcards have multiple elements, and sometimes I know some but not all of them. It would be nice to be able to say "I got this partially right" rather than just right or wrong. Maybe instead of right or wrong, we could grade the difficulty from 1-3 or 1-5, where 1 is very easy and 5 is very difficult. Then the algorithm could serve us better in terms of knowing how long to wait before making the card due again in the future.

Let me also say that this is a beautiful app overall and I greatly indebted to its creators and the people who continue improving it.

If anyone else agrees with me, or has comments about this, please post so we can push for this change in a future release.

    Hi Rick,

    Thanks for getting in touch with us! Currently there is no such feature in Mental Case. I’ve submitted this as a feature request for you. Please bear in mind that while we consider all ideas, not every suggestion will ultimately be implemented.

    We appreciate your interest and kind words, please let us know if we can help you with anything else.
