mzl.izggcbzs.175x175-75The recently launched Synopsis App aims at making the learning process more simple, less manual and more efficient. It’s an iPad app for students that lets users open up and read any PDF document and create notes by highlighting different sections of the text. Users can then modify the notes they have created by adding their own text. This free app then helps users summarize the document that they have read, so that they won’t need to go back to it again. Each individual note can be converted to its own flashcard and there is no need to buy flashcards or manually type and create flashcards.

All of these flashcards can be created on the go, as the user reads through their study material on an iPad. Once each flashcard is saved, they can be viewed on any smartphone, so it’s easy to study from anywhere. Teachers and students can even share the flashcards they have created to make it easy for anyone to access and avoid duplication of work.
