Kaplan USMLE Notes coming to iPhone!
by Sabio 03-01-2010, 01:01 AM

Kaplan Publishing and ScrollMotion recently announced a range of innovative USMLE textbook iPhone apps that are currently available from the App Store.

The apps create an entirely new study experience and allow students to use iPhone or iPod touch to highlight text, take audio and printed notes, search content by topic or type, take quizzes, navigate efficiently and more.

"Based on our knowledge of how successful students approach the mastery of complex content, we collaborated with ScrollMotion to ensure that Kaplan's new MCAT and USMLE apps for iPhone and iPod touch would include the customization tools our students currently rely on with their printed books, such as multi-colored highlighting, as well as new tools to enhance learning, such as audio note taking capability," said Maureen McMahon, president and publisher of Kaplan Publishing

Features built into the new textbook apps include:
  • Highlight Text: Students can mark text to organize their study with six different color tags.
  • Record Audio Notes or Take Printed Notes: Using the device's built-in audio recorder, students can take audio notes in addition to typing notes within the app.
  • Search Text: Filtered by subject, topic, or content type - including key concepts, margin notes, and practice questions - the application's search function has made the index a thing of the past.
  • Interactive Quizzes: Students can track quiz scores by right and wrong answers so they can make comparisons each time they take a quiz to see where they are improving and learn the correct answers.
These apps cover the equivalent of approximately twenty pounds of textbook information required for these exams. The apps are particularly relevant for this audience both because of the enormous volume of material that must be mastered in order to succeed on these exams, and also because USMLE students are constantly seeking new, more effective ways to study.

Kaplan apps can be purchased separately for $29.99 each or as an USMLE package for $219.99.

This is the first time ever where Kaplan makes their USMLE Lecture Notes available for direct purchase. Previously these extremely popular titles were available only for Kaplan center prep subscribers.

USMLE Titles currently available are:
