iFlipTips is the new iPad and iPhone app from TECHtionary, and is the ultimate studying companion. Whether you need to organize notes for an assignment, or study for a final exam, iFlipTips helps you collate and structure the relevant information in a way that’s easy to access, and easy to learn. The app is especially helpful for subjects that have a visual element, such as chemistry. This subject can be challenging to study: not only do you have a lot of theory and text to learn, but you also need to be able to remember equations, and recognize key diagrams.
iFlipTips can help you study all of these aspects of chemistry. Based on traditional 3X5 notecards, the app contains two different sections: iTips-Ideas cards, which you can use to record information, and iFlipCards, which are question and answer flip cards you can use to test your knowledge. The iTips-Ideas cards are useful for creating study notes. Once you’ve learned the information, and want to test your knowledge, simply create a series of questions using the iFlipCards to gauge the success of your latest study session. Testing yourself in this way reveals which areas of the subject you know, and which still need some work.
You can create iTips-Ideas cards and iFlipCards using different mediums, including text, images, audio and video. This enables you to tailor your study cards according to your favored style of learning. While some people might learn through reading, others learn through watching, through listening, or through doing. The iFlipTips app enables you to embrace all of these learning styles to find the right method for you.
The different ways of recording information also aid your learning of a subject like chemistry, which can be hard to study through text alone. For example, you can use the image box to take a snapshot of an equation, record a video explaining how the equation works and the theory behind it, and include a text description of the different components involved in the equation. Once you feel you’ve learned an equation and its associated theory, you can create an iFlipCard to test your knowledge. Once again, you can use text, images, audio and visual content to ensure you know the information thoroughly.
The audio recorder can also be useful for recording lectures, seminars or guided study sessions on particular topics for future use. Since each iFlipTip card is supposed to be able to contain the same amount of information as a 3X5 flashcard, you can create bite-sized cards for each topic as you study during a semester. By doing this, you create your study notes in advance, and free up more time for learning before exams.
The iFlipTips app’s folders system helps you organize your cards any way you want. Whether you want to create a set of notes based on a certain topic, or order them so that the material you need for each individual exam is kept together, you can create as many folders and sub-folders as you need. Simple and effective, iFlipTips is a study aid that can help you achieve the grades you want.
