Kikstart is a learning app for anyone who is brand new to the iPad and wants to get to know it better, and for those who have been using the iPad for some time but would like to learn to use it more effectively and get more out of it. It’s published by BCS, the UK’s Chartered Institute for IT – and is the first app I’ve seen that offers an assessment exam and an official certificate to show a recognized standard of competence in using the iPad.
There are a number of apps and books that set out to help new iPad users learn as this one does. I always find these apps interesting – partly because I want to see if I can learn any new tricks and more so because I have a number of friends and family members who are newer iPad users and I like keeping track of good resources to share with them.
So I’ve spent a good amount of time going through Kikstart from start to finish to see how it stacks up as a tool for getting started with and getting the best out of the iPad.
