STUDYBLUE Flashcards is an application that has been available on iPhone and Android for a little while (2009 for the iPhone), but now has finally been able to go universal and find its way to the iPad. It started as a student project from the University of Wisconsin at Madison, has been around since. Using the application users can make flashcards to study for different subjects from, with a plethora of features surrounding how it keeps track of what you do and don’t get right.
Here is the description of features for the new version, dubbed 6.0:
+ MAKE FLASHCARDS. Use text, pictures, and audio to create flashcards right on your iPhone or iPad.
+ STUDY STATS. Focus on toughest materials, go hard on “the wrongs”, and take pride in your progress.
+ SEARCH. Find online flashcards and notes from millions of classmate-created materials.
+ REMINDERS. Alerts put an end to forgetting about those 67 biology terms you have to study.
+ STUDY SAVER. Had to bail on a study session? Pick it back up where you left off.
+ MESSAGES. Contact classmates to ask questions or collaborate.
The change log for the update simply states “Your digital backpack is now on your iPad, too.” It’s a welcome to the iPad education section of the App Store.
