Being able to see all of the HY facts for a topic from within one card is great for understanding the concepts as a whole- much better than trying to learn everything separately and trying to integrate later!

This is a killer addition to Picmonic. Thanks to Picmonic I’m already crushing practice exams and still have 7+ months to study!

Fantastic idea to integrate the Picmonics with Anki.

Having instant access to the Picmonics related to the content I am reviewing; it really helps cement the material when trying to review as many cards as possible every day.

I like how it allows you to see the Picmonic very quickly through simply hovering over the underlined word. I think it is so great as it adds an image to the Anki flashcards that you already have. It saves you time from having to add Picmonics to the answers manually.

It’s nice that suggested Picmonics I may have never seen are also shown within Anki and hyperlinked.
