Creating Digital Catalogs Using iFlipTips

iFlipTips is a new note-taking app developed by TECHtionary. It takes the concept of traditional 3×5 flashcards, and translates it into a digital tool for your iPhone and iPad. The app allows you to create digital cards, which you can then store on your iDevice, using text, images, audio recordings and video clips. The cards come in three formats: iFlipCards are question and answer cards, iFlip-Slides are slide show-style cards, while iTips-Ideas card are note-taking cards.

iFlipTips is the perfect companion for students and professionals alike, as its format makes it highly versatile, and means it can be used for a variety of tasks, from studying for exams, to keeping a digital catalogue of business stock and services. If you run your own business, you can use the iFlipTips app to create a catalogue of your products, services, or both, that you can access and share with potential customers and clients with just a few taps.

If you want to use iFlipTips to create a digital catalogue, start by organizing the folders into a system that is suitable for filing your products or services. You can add as many folders and sub-folders as you like, so you have a lot of flexibility to create a customized folder system that works for your business. Possible folder systems include organizing products and services alphabetically, and creating separate folders for different sections of the alphabet. Alternatively, you can organize products by category, for example if you sell a range of home products, you can create separate folders for each room of the house.

Once you’ve created your folders, you can start creating individual cards for each product or service. To do this, use iTips-Ideas cards or iFlip-Slides. Using the text box, provide a description of the product or service, including any information that you would want to send to clients. You can include a picture of the product in the image section, which you can take with your iPhone or iPad. If relevant, you can also record an audio description, or create a video that explains how the product or service works.

The different mediums provide you with a chance to record exactly what your business offers, and to show potential customers and clients how your product or service works in as much detail as possible. Once you’ve saved your iTips-Ideas card or iFlipSlide in the correct folder, you can share your cards with others via email, Facebook or Twitter.

iTips-Ideas cards and iFlipSlides are useful for creating a catalogue of individual items, however iFlipCards can help you in a different, but equally as important, way. Designed in a question and answer format, you can use these cards to create a Frequently Asked Questions list that you can then use to answer questions from any potential customers or collaborators. This section of the app helps you prepare for customer inquiries and presentations, and prevents you being caught off-guard by unexpected questions.

 

iFlipTips  newest additions is called iFlipTipsPro and has a iFlipTips Calendar and multicolor notepads/iDoodleGrams called iFlipPads are perfect ways to adhere to a schedule and manipulate pictures and images for a variety of note uses.  The ideas tool is useful for organizing and tracking notes, and other academic related activities. Use it to organize contacts of people you meet during your study or research, reminders or just creative drawings which can be shared via Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter or email.

Crowdsourcing Using iFlipTips – iPhone/iPad App

Crowdsourcing entails outsourcing projects or tasks to the general public. It is different from hiring contractors as the process involves advertising a task to the general public, then requesting people with suitable expertise to come forward and apply.

iFlipTips, the new study and note-taking app from TECHtionary, is useful in a variety of situations, not least when you’re attempting to complete a project through crowdsourcing. While this method of outsourcing work can be a helpful way of completing tasks quickly and at a low cost, it requires excellent project management skills, and the ability to keep track of which tasks you’ve designated to which people. As a versatile app that is fully customizable and gives you complete flexibility over the kind of information you record, and how you organize that information, iFlipTips can help you run a successful crowdsourcing project from your iPhone or iPad.

iFlipTips is divided into three different types of digital flashcard: iTips-Ideas cards, iFlipCards, and iFlip-Slides. Each different type of card has its own use when organizing a crowdsourcing project, depending on your needs and what kind of project you’re running.

iTips-Ideas cards and iFlip-Slides are helpful for preparing comprehensive instructions for the task that needs to be completed. On each card, you can include text, an image, a video clip, and an audio recording, that can help you describe with precision exactly what you want. iFlip-Slides are particularly helpful if you need to give a presentation or talk about the project, as you can use the slides as a visual aid by connecting your iPad or iPhone to a monitor or projector.

The iFlipCards section of iFlipTips enables you to create cards in a question and answer format. These cards are especially useful if you want to send a FAQ list to someone else who is working on the project.

The folder system for each section of the app can help you keep track of projects in progress. If you have multiple projects on the go, you can create a folder for each one, and then create sub-folders relating to specific areas you have outsourced to others. Alternatively, you can create a separate folder for each individual you have outsourced work to, so you can easily keep track of their tasks and deadlines.

IFlipSlides and iTips-Ideas cards can be shared with others via Facebook, Twitter and email. Not only does this enable you to share details of tasks quickly and easily with people hired through crowdsourcing, but you can also share tasks that still need doing on social networking websites to try and attract more interest.

When emailing individuals with details of a task, the app pastes the text into the body of the email, and provides a link to the video and audio recordings, which are stored on the iFlipTips server. This helps you avoid sending emails with large attachments and, because of the nature of the app, requires you to send information in bite-sized, memorable chunks, reducing the chance of misunderstanding and, consequently, the efficiency of the project.

iPhone and iPad Event Planning Apps

Whether you’re planning a small work social function, or a large company conference, the event will reflect on the organization, so needs to be well-organized and professional.

Omnifocus – $9.99 (iPhone)/$19.99 (iPad)

Omnifocus is a productivity app that you can use in conjunction with the desktop software, or as a stand-alone app. It is powerful organization system that lets you break event-planning down into different projects and individual tasks, giving you a broader idea of exactly what you need to do and when you need to do it. The iPhone and iPad organization apps are available separately.

Image Map Mailer – $1.99

iFlipTips as a Personal Organizer – iFlipDiary

With more information to remember, more tasks to complete and more appointments to attend, it’s never been more important to have a suitable personal organizer. The iFlipTips app provides a handy way to keep all your personal notes, reminders, task lists and appointments in one place. The versatile nature of the app means you can capture thoughts and ideas as they occur to you during the day, and sort them into folders that provide you with the kind of organizational system you need.

Although the iTunes app store has plenty of existing personal organization apps, often these use complex systems that require just as much time to maintain as it takes you to do the tasks themselves. The systems used by these apps are often also rigid, so you have to organize your tasks and reminders in a method specified by the app, rather than being able to create your own system. iFlipTips is simple to use, but is so customizable that you can create the kind of personal organizer system that works for you, without having the app dictate how you should capture and save your tasks.

One way of using iFlipTips as a personal organizer is to create an iTips-Ideas folder for each day of the week. To do this, click on “View” under the iTips-Ideas heading, then tap “Edit” in the top right-hand corner of the screen, before adding a folder for each week day. You can also use the sub-folders to organize your reminders for each day into individual folders, such as “Tasks” and “Appointments”, so you can retrieve the information you need quickly.

This organization system also means you can organize your week’s reminders in advance, so you don’t have to remember tasks and appointments on the day. Spending an hour each week organizing your reminders for the next seven days can save you time and stress on each individual day, as all you then have to do is look up the information and be at the required place, or complete the required task, at the specified time.

One of the key pieces of organization advice you might hear is to separate private tasks and appointments from those associated with work. Using iFlipTips as a personal organizer helps you separate out your work life from your personal life. If you use your iPhone calendar for personal appointments, you can use iFlipTips to organize work meetings and deadlines, and vice versa.

The iFlipTips app’s folders system means you can keep all information you need in one place, including shopping lists, reminders and upcoming appointments, so you don’t need to switch between different apps to get the information you need. The variety mediums used in the app – text, image, video and audio – mean you can capture information in different ways. If it takes to long to describe a design or concept you want to discuss with a colleague using text, simply take a picture or video of it to show them later.

Personal organization doesn’t have to be complicated. The iFlipTips app provides a helpful system that enables you to quickly store tasks and reminders for later, leaving you with more time to get on with doing what really matters.

 

iFlipTips Version 3.0 – Independent Review by Hannah B – iPhone/iPad App

iFlipTips is a study and training app from TECHtionary. It’s a note-taking app that I’ve enjoyed using for my studies, and in my professional life. With the recent addition of two new features, the app has become even more useful for organizing notes and appointments. Thanks to the way the app is structured, I’ve been able to access notes for study and work quickly and easily. iFlipTips has help me develop my memory skills, increase my information retention rates, and create my own customized personal organizer. It’s so useful to have all the information I need right in the palm of my hand.

The app is divided into three sections: iFlipCards, iFlipSlides and iTipsIdeas. With the latest version of the app, you can also access a calendar, which enables you to create appointments.

In each of the three sections, you can create different ‘digital flashcards’. These can contain text, and image, an audio clip and video, which is really helpful for studying as it provides me with different ways of learning: I can memorize facts from text, and I can create a diagram, audio clip or image to help me remember the information. What I love about this app is that it’s also suitable for creating and giving presentations. I’ll explain each of the different sections you can use to do this below:

iFlipCards

iFlipCards are question and answer cards, where you can write or record the question or prompt on one side of the card, then record the answer on the other side. The iFlipCards section is the perfect tool for studying, as it’s allowed me to test my knowledge and see how thoroughly I know what I’m supposed to be learning. In a professional environment, it’s also helpful for practicing for interviews, and preparing tricky questions for a Q&A session. Since it’s so easy to find the cards, you can retrieve answers quickly, and use your prepared answers for support.

iFlipSlides

iFlipSlides is a relatively new addition to the iFlipTips app that enables you to create professional-looking slide shows containing images, text, video and audio. Simply create each slide separately and then put them all together. Once you’ve finished making individual slides, you can also reorganize the order and edit them as many times as you need. iFlipSlides is the perfect tool for creating useful and informative slide shows while away from a computer. As well as helping me create interactive study notes, it’s also saved me a lot of time as I can prepare important presentations while out and about.

iTipsIdeas Cards

iTipsIdeas cards are information flashcards. These are helpful for creating a record system, digital catalogue or study notes from class. I’ve used iTipsIdeas cards to create a reading record, make an inventory of things I own, and produce end-of-module notes for my studies.

One feature of iFlipTips that allows me to use the app with such flexibility is the folders system. You can create different folders and sub-folders to store notes, which mean you can create notes for different subjects, and areas of life, from study notes to shopping lists.

The calendar is one of the most recent additional features, and expands what you can do with this app. As well as keeping all my notes for college and work in one place now, I also use the app as a personal organizer. Using the calendar feature, I can add events, notes, and choose an icon to go with event so I can tell what kind of appointment it is at a glance. What’s even more useful is that the app sends push notifications when an appointment is coming up, so it keeps track of my diary for me. (image 1 and 2)

Wherever you’re working or whatever you’re doing, iFlipTips is a valuable app that will help you improve your organization all round. The app is well worth the price for the amount of time it saves, and has been helpful for both my studies and my career.

Learning and Concentration Tips

Maintaining concentration levels is one of the hardest aspects of studying, especially if you don’t feel very passionate about the subject you’re learning. Concentration is one of the key factors behind exam success, however, and your concentration levels while studying will impact your performance in your exams. Here are some tips to help you improve your concentration, so you can make the most of your study time.

Create a quiet space

Make sure you choose somewhere quiet and free of distractions to study, where you won’t be interrupted. A polite suggestion is to put your phone on silent so you won’t be disturbed by other people. Set a rule for yourself to not answer any calls or text for a certain period of time.

Work out your most productive study time

Some people work better in the morning, while others work better in the afternoon or evening. Try to identify your ideal study time early on, and tailor your day around that. Often, it’s more psychologically rewarding to try and get as much done as possible early in the day; however different people will have different study habits.

Make sure you’ve met your basic needs

Sitting down to study when you’re tired, hungry, thirsty, or distracted by events in your personal life will hinder your concentration, no matter how good your study tools are. Make sure you’re well rested and have had something to eat and drink before you start studying. If you find you are thinking about people or events outside your study session or you are daydreaming, try not to get caught up in your thoughts and put them aside until later.

Break down large subject areas into smaller topics

Breaking down large subject areas into smaller topics helps make them less daunting. The iFlipTips app is perfect for this task, as it allows you to create digital flashcards containing text, audio, video, and images. Learning information in bite-sized pieces helps improve your concentration, and speeds up your learning process.

Do one thing at a time

Don’t try to study multiple subjects or topics at the same time, as you will just confuse yourself. If you’re feeling overwhelmed with the amount you have to learn, try creating a study plan, with hourly slots for each subject. iFlipTips is useful for ensuring you only study one thing at a time, as you can separate your flashcards into different folders, and keep relevant cards together. You can also use iFlipCards, a tool within iFlipTips, to test your knowledge of a single topic before moving on to the next.

Start the Hardest Subject area or Topic First

It’s tempting to leave the subjects we find difficult until we’ve learned all the easier topics first. Working on the hardest subjects before anything else, however, will give you more time to go back and make sure you’ve learned the information thoroughly. Taking a break between topics allows you to process the information you’ve learned, and test your recall. When organizing study notes in iFlipTips, especially if you’re using the folders to create a study calendar, arrange sub-folders and files with the hardest subjects first, so you’re not tempted to skip to the easier subjects and leave the hard work for later.

iFlipTips  newest additions is called iFlipTipsPro and has a iFlipTips

and multicolor notepads/iDoodleGrams called iFlipPads are perfect ways to adhere to a schedule and manipulate pictures and images for a variety of note

Study Tech Tool iFlipTips for iPhone/iPhone – Mobile 3×5 Postcards

iFlipTips is the new multi-purpose study iPhone/iPad app. Perfect for exam revision, creating training notes, and outlining speeches, the app is effective and easy to use. If you’re preparing for a big day, you’ll want to use iFlipTips to its full potential, so here are some tips to help you make the most of this note-taking app.

1. Use it every day

When you’re trying to commit information to memory, doing a little every day is far more effective than doing a lot once each week. Using iFlipTips everyday will make memorizing revision notes or speeches feel effortless, rather than trying to sit down and memorize everything at once. You might even find that by using this revision tool each day, you don’t have to actively try and memorize your notes – simply reading through them regularly will help you commit them to memory. Using the app every day might sound daunting, but you will find time. iFlipTips is a helpful learning app for memorizing information on the go, so next time you’re stuck in a queue, on public transport or waiting around, simply load up the app and scan through your notes.

2. Break large projects down into small chunks

Tackling large projects as a whole entity is unhelpful for your learning, bad for your motivation, and could damage your confidence in your ability to memorize information for exams, training or speeches. In the long-term, this blow to your confidence could lead you to doubt your ability to complete the exam, conduct the training or deliver a successful speech, which could have disastrous consequences. Breaking the information down into small chunks is exactly what iFlipTips is for. You can remember a three-word phrase much easier than you can remember a three-sentence paragraph, so take the time to break each part of the project down into a memorable pieces and start there. You might feel like you’re learning ‘slower’ initially, but in the long-term, using iFlipTips to make brief, simple notes is far more productive than trying to bite off more information than you can chew.

3. Use the different learning styles

The way in which you memorize certain information will depend on what kind of learning style you have, and the reason you are memorizing the information. For example, if you’re learning facts for an exam, writing notes can be helpful. If you’re preparing for a speech, conference or training session, however, recording an ideal version of the audio then listening to it might be more helpful than preparing by reading through notes. iFlipTips caters for different learning styles; to make the most of these, identify which style would be most useful for the task at hand, and try experimenting with different approaches to see which learning style best suits you.

4. Create a long-term memory plan

Most information we take in is committed only to our short-term memories. This means that after a small amount of time – as little an hour – we won’t be able to recall information we previously thought we knew. To commit information to our long-term memory, so we can recall it on demand for months and even years afterwards, you need to keep going back to the information you’re learning over a period of time. iFlipTips’ folders system can help you organize your notes by subject and chronologically, so you can keep track of which information you’ve committed to long-term memory, and which information you need to revisit.

5. Use the app in small bursts rather than a long session

Just as breaking information down into manageable chunks will help you make the most out of using iFlipTips, using the app in short, concentrated sessions two or three times per day will help make your learning more efficient. We can only concentrate for a limited amount of time, after which we’re unlikely to remember what we’re trying to learn. Instead of spending a couple of hours or so at a time with iFlipTips, break down your learning into shorter 20-30 minute blocks. Although you might feel like you are learning less because you’re using the app for a shorter amount of time, you’re more likely to remember the information later.

iFlipTips Improving your Study Skills – iPhone & iPad App

iFlipTips is a new revision app for iPhone and iPad that can help you study more efficiently with less effort. Using a flashcard-style of learning, iFlipTips can help you revise for exams, complete assignments and keep all your study notes in one place.

1.  iFlipTips encourages different styles of learning

One of the most helpful features of iFlipTips is that it caters for different learning styles. We all learn in different ways: some of us by doing, some of us by watching, some of us by reading, and others by hearing. The iTips-ideas can help people from any of these categories and it offers a flexible way to make the most of your learning style. You can use the app to record audio clips, include a picture with the tip to encourage memory by association, and utilize a variety of memory tools that will help you remember what you’re learning more effectively than simply writing the information down or reading it from a book.

2.  It makes ideas understandable

Based on traditional 3×5 flashcards, iFlipTips is perfect for breaking down complex ideas and theories into separate, more manageable pieces of information. This enables you to approach your learning step-by-step and ensure you have a comprehensive understanding of what it is you’re studying. Whether you’re learning verbal ideas or scientific and mathematic equations, you can use iFlipTips to perfect your understanding one step at a time, leaving you more confident in your ability to communicate your knowledge in an exam or assignment.

3.  It contains a question and answer format so you can test yourself

Once you’ve understood and learned what you’re studying, you can test your knowledge using part of the app called iFlipCards. This allows you to create question and answer cards so you can see what you’ve learned. Like the iTips-Ideas cards, the questions and answers can be written as text, recorded as audio or video, or presented as an image. Likewise, the answer can be recorded in written, visual, audio or video format, depending on what style of learning suits you best. This means that you can use iFlipTips not only to prepare for written exams, but also to ready yourself for viva examinations too.

4.  iFlipTips can be used for individual ideas or larger concepts

iFlipTips is a versatile app, and you can use the iFlipCards and iTips-Ideas cards to study individual items, or larger concepts. Whether you need to learn vocabulary and phrases for  a Spanish exam, an exercise workout plan or study up on the American Civil War for a history assignment, you can tailor the cards to suit your study needs. The different mediums available when recording information are particularly helpful for learning languages, as you can use iFlipTips to perfect your accent as well as the more technical aspects of vocabulary and grammar.

5.  Once you’ve written cards you can save them for easy retrieval

As well as offering multiple styles of learning, iFlipTips trumps traditional 3×5 cards in another way: organization. Using the app, you can store your iFlipCards and iTips-Ideas cards in folders on your phone, so you have easy access to them when you need them. Gone are the days of losing or forgetting your study notes; instead, you can create your very own filing system within the app so you can access notes and quizzes with just a few taps.

Presentation Development and Improving Presentation Skills Using iFlipTips

Good presentation skills are crucial. We use them in our careers and our personal lives, and utilize these skills even when we might not realize it. Developing your onsite and online (webinar) presentation skills can have a positive impact on many different areas of your life and, for that reason; it’s beneficial to improve your presentation skills, even if public speaking isn’t a key part of your job role right now.

iFlipTips is a study and training app for iPad and iPhone that revolutionizes the way we deliver and absorb information. As well as being an invaluable tool for students of all subjects, iFlipTips can also help you when you’re teaching yourself new skills. The app avoids the traditional text-based learning style, and instead focuses on providing you with a variety of tools to help you create flashcards that increase your learning speed and help you retain and recall more information in less time.

The iFlipTips app is divided into two sections: iTips-Ideas cards and iFlipCards. Each card contains four different formats: text, image, audio, and video, so you can record and store information using different mediums. When studying and improving your presentation skills, you can use these different formats to learn new skills more efficiently.

If you’re working to improve your presentation skills, the best place to start is to evaluate where you are at the moment. iFlipTips helps you do this, as you can record yourself giving a staged or real presentation using the audio and video functions. Doing this can help you identify and improve aspects of your presentation, such as your body language and tone of voice.

The ability to record videos and audio clips means you can also capture snippets of public speakers and presenters you admire, and use the recordings to compare their style to your own practice sessions. Watching other successful public speakers, you can identify what you enjoy about their delivery, and attempt to reproduce that in your own presentations.

As you develop your skills, recording yourself can also help you prepare for live public speaking engagements. Thorough preparation helps you gain confidence in your ability to give an engaging and interesting presentation. Practice is the key to success, and using the iFlipTips video function, you can simulate what it feels like to have a live audience.

The text function can help you make key notes about presenting skills, for example that you should never start with an apology unless you’ve made an error, and that you should always credit the source of quotes you use. By saving these “notes” in ordered folders, you can easily refer back to them later to remind yourself of key messages and tips.

As well as helping you improve your presentation skills, you can also use iFlipTips to keep you on track during presentations. Use iTips-Ideas cards to outline the structure of your presentation, and record key quotes and facts you want to remember in the text box. If you want to, you can also share your notes with others via email, Facebook or Twitter directly through the app.

If you plan to include a question and answer session at the end of a presentation, the iFlipCards can help you prepare. Create a separate “question” card for each question you anticipate being asked, and then create an ideal response on the “answer” card. Avoid memory blanks and feelings of panic, and instead enjoy confidence in knowing that you’ve prepared as thoroughly as you can.

iFlipTips  newest additions is called iFlipTipsPro and has a iFlipTips Calendar and multicolor notepads/iDoodleGrams called iFlipPads are perfect ways to adhere to a schedule and manipulate pictures and images for a variety of note uses.  The ideas tool is useful for organizing and tracking notes, and other academic related activities. Use it to organize contacts of people you meet during your study or research, reminders or just creative drawings which can be shared via Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter or email.

Art Study Using iFlipTips

iFlipTips is a new study app from TECHtionary. Using text, images, video and audio, you can create digital 3×5 flashcards on your iPhone and carry them around with you wherever you go. Thanks to iFlipTips’ visual component, the app is an effective study tool for subjects like art. Art, and other visual subjects, can be difficult to learn using traditional text-based study methods, however iFlipTips’s versatility means you can learn using a variety of mediums.

The use of different formats enhances iFlipTips’ effectiveness as a study tool, as it caters for people with different learning styles. Whether you learn best by reading, listening, watching or through images, you can customize the cards on iFlipTips to create a library of information that benefits your studies.

Whether you’re studying history of art, fine art, sculpture, textiles, illustration or any other art-based subject, iFlipTips can help you create effective notes and organize them in a way that makes learning easy. The app’s customizable folders system allows you to file your work in way that suits you.

For example, if you are studying history of art, you can create different folders for each artistic period, with a sub-folder for each major artist from that period. Art students whose courses focus on practical art skills can use folders to create a library of their work, with a separate folder for different semesters, different mediums or different shows.

Using the different functions within the app, you can create a comprehensive and visual catalogue of different items, whether you are studying them or want to keep a record of your own artistic progress. The app is divided into two sections: iTips-Ideas cards and iFlipCards. iTips-Ideas cards are helpful for keeping a record of your work, or creating study notes, while you can use iFlipCards to test your knowledge when studying for exams.

Using the integrated camera function, you can take pictures of notable drawings or paintings, or record your own work.The video function enables you to capture details of more complex works you create or study, like sculptures, mosaics, or reliefs. Alongside the image or video of a work, you can include details of the drawing or artist in the text box, or record an audio description using the sound recorder. The audio recorder is also useful for recording important lectures or seminars, so you don’t have to take notes under pressure and miss potentially important information.

The iTips-Ideas cards can help you create a catalogue of your works, as well as works you might have to study as part of your theory lessons. When it’s time to study for exams, you can use the iFlipCards section of the app to test yourself on your art knowledge. One way of doing this is to create a question card containing a painting or the name of an artist, then an answer card containing details of the painting’s period, style and significance, or the artist’s background, style and works. Like the iTips-Ideas cards, you can record information on iFlipCards using text, image, video or audio. This means you can test your knowledge in a variety of ways and ensure you know the material thoroughly before sitting your exams.

iFlipTips newest additionsis called iFlipTipsPro and has a iFlipTips Calendar and multicolor notepads/iDoodleGrams called iFlipPads are perfect ways to adhere to a schedule and manipulate pictures and images for a variety of note uses.
