The iPad is a fantastic tool for the world of education. I have used mine to track assignments, take notes, record lectures, read and annotate textbooks, study for exams, do research and much more. Now that I have graduated, however, it is time to put my iPad to new use as I look into graduate school – studying for the GRE.
As I began my search for apps to utilize for this purpose, I began to wonder what kind of apps existed for all the various standardized tests that we might encounter. This round-up contains some of my findings – a list of some apps designed for specific tests as well as some apps for more general preparation. Read on to learn about some of the best apps that I found.
Today I thought I’d take a different approach to the trusty Roundup and share some awesome people to follow on Twitter for iOS, Apple, and technology insight! It can feel pretty daunting trying to find good people to to follow, like shopping for Oyster Sauce in the supermarket (I’m still recovering from that expedition), but have no fear, I’m here to help.
Twitter is an awesome place to find people who are really switched on and engage with them in a meaningful way, getting snippets of revelation, humour, and the daily trivia of people’s lives has never been so easy!
I enlisted the enthusiastic help of the AppStorm team to hone and refine this expansive list, we all hope you like it. My only word of advice: be ruthlessly selective, or prepare to be swallowed by a deluge of carefully chosen characters.
The iPad is a great tool for almost anything nowadays but one of the categories that app developers seemingly haven’t delved into is programming. Sure, there are plenty of HTML and Markdown editors out there on the App Store (Byword is a great example of one of these) but for creating iPad apps, you’ll either have to make do with what’s on the App Store or sit down and learn Xcode, which has a steep learning curve and requires plenty of additional knowledge, such as Objective-C.
But now, some smart Australian developer by the name of Simeon Nasilowski has come up with the brilliant idea of being able to program (simple) iPad apps – and all straight from your iPad. Codea (formerly known as Codify) is not only a simple way of designing your own iPad apps but also features plenty of built-in tools and tricks to help make your programming experience a lot more easier and, dare I say it, enjoyable.
