Educational Reference Tool SparkNotes Comes To iOS

iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

SparkNotes have saved many a student in need of help as they study various pieces of literature. Figuring out the subtext behind some classic pieces of work isn't always immediately obvious, and these notes can make all the difference.

That useful helping hand is now available through the SparkNotes iOS app. 50 pre-installed study guides are already available with the option of viewing hundreds of others online. These guides can then be downloaded for offline use if the user so wishes.

Numerous different works worthy of studying are included here, like Shakespeare and Orwell. Poetry and Philosophy is similarly covered along with short stories to appeal to all arts students.

Search functionality is extensive, making it easy to browse through different sections of the guides from thematic analysis to scene by scene breakdown.

There's a social element, too, with users able to share their location and what they're currently studying, thus encouraging friends to gather round for a study group session.

SparkNotes is out now and it's free to download.
