Introducing CCS Cards - A flashcard Progressive Web App for the USMLE Step 3
Sep 28, 2022
We are proud to introduce a new feature/service of CCSCases.com which we are calling CCS Cards. CCS Cards is a flashcard app that is a collection of 3000 bite sized facts formatted in flashcards that will help with both the multiple choice and CCS portion of the USMLE Step 3.
We've worked hard to make it a good experience and have used some great technology. Here is a list of features:
This is a progressive web app (PWA). It does not require any permissions to run unlike most apps downloaded from an app store
There are over 3000 bite sized USMLE Step 3 flashcards.
Designed for use on a phone or tablet (but also works on a desktop)
Progress is synced between devices
You only need to download the flashcards once to a particular device (you might need to redownload if there are updates to the flashcards)
You can install the app on your phone like a normal app. For Android, you click your browser options and then "Install App". For iOS, you click share icon and then "Add to Home Screen."
If you don't want to install on your phone, you can just login to cards.ccscases.com each time. You should not have to download the flashcards again unless you've deleted your cache or are using incognito/private browser (which disables cache saving).
You can use the flashcards offline (all progress with be synced to our servers after you are back online). We require that you sync at least once every 2-3 days
You can use the standard study mode or spaced learning where you review flashcards you missed more frequently than flashcards you get correct
Ability to favorite a flashcard
Ability to change color of the App
Dark Mode ability
Tap to flip / Swipe up to mark correct / Swipe down to mark incorrect / Swipe left to go to next flashcard / Swipe right to go to previous flashcard
Can study by category if desired
Comes free with a CCSCases.com subscription.
Note: this feature is not available on a demo account.
We hope you try it out. You can try it out here. You login to the site by using the same login/password that you use on app.ccscases.com. The technology is different, so when you login, it will create a new account for the flashcards, so if you change your password on app.ccscases.com, it will not automatically change on cards.ccscases.com.
