The world's first iPad Smart Cover app gives students a peek at digital flash cards
Saturday 11 June 2011
Popular note-taking application developer Evernote has lifted the cover on a brand new app that utilizes the iPad's Smart Cover to help you learn.
Evernote Peek is the first app on the market to interact with Apple’s magnetic Smart Cover - an accessory that automatically wakes up the iPad when lifted up at the corner.
Evernote’s free app works in tandem with the cover to turn the iPad into a digital and interactive set of customizable flash cards that are designed to help you study or strengthen your memory.
"Once you’ve connected Peek to your Evernote account and selected your study materials, you simply close the Smart Cover and peek under it to see a clue. Raise the cover further to reveal the answer. To advance to the next clue, just close the cover and repeat," explains Evernote’s Andrew Sinkov in a June 8 post on the company’s blog.
"It’s totally new, and yet feels as familiar as lifting a page," he added.
Students can add their own study guides and quizzes to the app or try their hand at the included notebooks provided by Evernote and online flashcard company StudyBlue.
