The new iPad app Version 2.1 is now available at the Apple store with improved functionality! Guided by user feedback, CourseSmart created new features that will make using eTextbooks much easier and more efficient. Version 2.1 of the CourseSmart iPad app is launched just as college students are heading back-to-school, and planning to use their new iPads for coursework this fall.
New features include:
-Faster Performance - The faster the better! Perfect for students who are always on the go and don’t have time to waste when assignments are due!
-Sharper Images - Images bring the text to life, and capture the attention of students who are visual learners.
-Bookshelf that supports unlimited eTextbooks titles - With 4-5 classes each semester, anywhere from 1 to 5 books per course, 2 semesters a year, 4-5 years of college… that’s a lot of books! Students can easily declutter their dorm rooms with the new bookshelf feature that allows for unlimited eTextbooks titles.
-Remembers where the user left off on a page - Don’t waste anymore time flipping through a book. This new feature saves time by remembering and recalling where the reader left off.
-Ability to mail an image or portion of a page - Group projects are a lot easier when classmates are all on the same page. This new feature allows for snapshots of the eTextbooks page to be emailed to anyone right from the device.
More detailed features include:
- Swipable paging
- Pinch and zoom
- Improved note functionality
- Ability to “go to” a page directly
- Improved page highlighting
- Local page annotation
