The popular language learning app Duolingo, which boasts over 25 million learners, will be updated to version 4.0 on April 24, promising big and exciting changes. You may recognize this app – it was the Free iPad App of the week on iPad Insight and was Apple’s iPhone App of The Year in 2013.
A few months ago the Omni Study App was released and looked to capture a new segment of the education market. It was soon recognized by the App Store as a best new app. Needless to say, any writer would be excited to review such an app, and I was too. Unfortunately, the results were disappointing and buggy to say the least.
Every so often there’s a revolution in education. The iPad and the boundless possibilities it brings with it are one of those revolutions.
Whether you’re an iPad aficionado or simply a recreational user, the iPad has the power to make your life easier. Regardless of age or specialization, these are the apps every student should have.
No matter what your level of education, there will always be things you need to memorize. There’s no better way to do that than with your good old trusty flashcards. But just like so many things of the past, flashcards have been reinvented for today’s digital world. Brainscape for iPad allows users to study flash cards in a different way than other services offer. The apps are well designed, and really do help you memorize the material. From Chinese to Sports Trivia, this app will get the job done.
