I really like this app, its main purpose is revision. It has many subjects and levels to choose from as well as specific exam boards so that you're not revising the stuff that you don't need to! You can select your subjects so you don't need to go through the initial process every time and it keeps track of your progress. The quizzes can be done of a specific unit or a random selection of your course topics. You can choose the amount of questions in each quiz from 5 to 25. After each quiz it gives you your percentage of correct answers and you can see your results for each unit. Therefore helping you spot your weaknesses and improve upon them. When redoing a quiz, your results get added to your previous one which gives you an average overall for that subject and also an accurate interpretation of what level you're working at.
In settings you have the option of being shown the correct answer after every question, none of the questions, or just the ones you get wrong. Also there is the option to do it under timed conditions, which will be useful closer to the exams. Its also useful as you can dip in and out with this app, and revise even when you only have a few minutes and of course having it on a mobile device makes it easier to take with you than all of your course notes!

Unfortunately there is a down side with the Psychology subject on this app as where the lecturers have discretion over which studies to use, this can mean that not every single one can be covered in the app.
