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.
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 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 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 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.
