Our blog posts share what our students and staff have to say about selected apps. This blog post by Joy reviews Synopsis, a note organization and flashcard-making app.
Synopsis: Compile Notes & Make Flashcards from PDFs
Do you like using flash cards but hate the time it takes to make them? Would your life be immeasurably better if an iPad app would let you open up and read any PDF document and make flashcards just by highlighting the text? Smile, because happy days are here: Synopsis can do all that and more.
Synopsis has four key functions:
- An interactive reader
- Notes section
- Flash card creator
- Notes Library
From the interactive reader, you can highlight important parts of the text. It’s easy to make flashcards from the highlighted notes. Further, once you make a flashcard, you can view it on any smartphone, making studying a snap. Even better: the flashcards can be exported to a Quizlet account. You can also make a PDF document that contains all of the highlighted notes.
