Studying is rarely fun. It’s necessary, it’s important, but normally not what you want to be doing. Studying with Evernote Peek is an exception. Our addictive learning app, designed for the iPad 2 Smart Cover, blends digital and analog to create a studying experience that’s both new and familiar at the same time. Today, we introduce the new Evernote Peek, now available for all iPads. No Smart Cover required!
The Evernote Peek Virtual Cover
Peek was inspired by the iPad 2 Smart Cover, but not everyone has a Smart Cover, nor an iPad 2. Knowing this led us to develop a swipeable Virtual Cover that maintains the dynamics of a Smart Cover, but could be used with any iPad. Now, when you launch Peek, you’ll be able to swipe down a tab and select a Virtual Cover of your choice—it’s available in 10 colors.
From there, it’s just like using a real Smart Cover. Choose your study materials, close the cover, peek to see the clue, open the cover more to see the answer. Shut the cover and repeat. All this is done by simply swiping the screen. You may need to enable the Virtual Cover in the application settings.
Of course, Peek is still best experienced with an iPad 2 and a real Apple Smart Cover, but the Virtual Cover provides a nice alternative.
Whether you’re prepping for finals or planning a foreign getaway, Peek will help you get ready. Select a notebook from your Evernote account or choose from some of the great content that we provide you. We include some fun trivia, language exercises, and even decorating tips from Martha Stewart.
Creating new study materials is easy. All you need to do is make a notebook in Evernote. The titles of the notes will become the clues and the body of the notes will become the answers. To fit into the Peek interface, the titles shouldn’t exceed one sentence and the body should stay under three sentences. That’s all. When you sync Evernote and sync Peek, the notebooks will appear ready for studying.
New materials from VisitEurope.com
The newest additions to Evernote Peek are five notebooks from VisitEurope. Learn about Western, Central and Eastern Europe, as well as Scandinavia and the Mediterranean. Ever wonder what “Minho” is, or where to find a pub tram? Now you can find out. They’ve even incorporated some audio clues.
