This is a simple application geared towards urology residents and 4th year medical students interested in urology looking for flashcards on a plethora of urologic topics. There are over 1500 different flashcards that cover the entire scope of urology. The cards consist of questions covering pathology, pathophysiology, management, treatment, and pharmacology related to urologic diseases. All information is provided in text format with the option to ‘reveal’ or ‘hide’ the answers to the questions as well as the ability to ‘star’ questions for easy access later.
Sexiness of Interface/Ease of Use:
This app has a very simple user interface, making it easy to move back and forth between cards; however, by not having a table of contents section to separate the cards based on their topic, it was very difficult to find the content that the user may specifically be interested in. Also, if the user goes back to the main menu, the cards start over again instead of saving the user’s place, making it difficult to navigate to the specific card the user was viewing.
This app is useful for 4th year medical students and urology residents. It is not intended or useful for patients or practicing urologists.
A solid app for urology residents to quickly navigate through often-tested facts covering a large number of topics across the entire scope of urologic disease processes. By not separating cards into different categories, I found the content very difficult to navigate through. Looking forward to future updates that may fix the navigation issues.
