iFlipTips is the new note-taking app from TECHtionary. With a range of uses, the app can help you study, create notes for training sessions or presentations, and create a library of information about a topic of your choice.
If you own a car, or run a car maintenance business, you need a quick and easy way of accessing car maintenance and repair tips. Not only will this help you maintain your automobile as a private owner, but could also help you keep your business running smoothly if you work in a repair shop.
iFlipTips can help you create a compendium of information related to car maintenance. Using the app’s different mediums, including text, image, audio and video, you can log information in a way that suits you. Whether you find it easiest to digest written information, images, video or audio, you can create flashcards that help you remember information quickly and easily.
The in-app functions allow you to take pictures, make a video, or record audio with just a few taps, and you can save each card in a folder to view later. For example, if you were creating an encyclopedia of car information, you could use the text box to record what parts you need to carry out, use the image to take a picture of the issue, the fix, or the car part you’re dealing with, and use the video or audio to record a guide to repairing the vehicle. By using audio or video, you can access guided repair instructions in real time in the future, without having to refer to a book or website. If you work better using audio instructions, you might find it easier recording your maintenance or repair tips using the audio section. If, however, you find it easier to learn by watching, you might find it more helpful to record and follow a video of the maintenance.
The app’s folders system enables you to create a library of car repair tips, and organize your flashcards any way you want. You could create a library of car repair tips, organizing by parts of car, or the type of repair. If you’re a private vehicle owner creating an encyclopedia of car maintenance for your own use, you can use the folder system to create a maintenance calendar. You might want to create separate folders for spring, summer, autumn, and winter, with maintenance tips in each file that are appropriate for that season. Alternatively, you can create a monthly, or six-monthly folder containing tips detailing all the regular maintenance you need to carry out.
Businesses can use the app to create a ‘quick reference’ catalogue, for obscure or rarely-used maintenance tips and repairs. Next time you get stuck or need reminding about how to carry out a certain type of repair, you can open up the app, navigate to the correct folder, and find the information you need. The app can also be helpful for training new employees or apprentices, as it limits the amount of in-person training you need to supervise.
Using the app’s social media sharing capabilities, you can also post your tips to Facebook and Twitter, or share them via email. This is very useful for social media marketing, as you can easily share your latest tips and tricks with customers. You can also use the app to create content to send to your email list including links to video and audio content.
