In the name "Best iPhone App of 2014" by iTunes, it is a beautiful composite application working with users through 25 mini-games that trains your memory, focus, reading and even mathematical skills, continuing to be fun (I swear it is fun!).

Not to mention, you can save and share documents, folders, and files with other documents on disk. This will be a very big economic time when it comes to working together on group projects.

This application is the dream of any student (or his student). Like the iTunes for music, iTunes U is a university system of study. It provides access to courses from some of the world's leading universities without cost! Do you ever think about what it's like to take the Philosophy philosophy from Yale? You can use iTunes U.

It even refers to books that you can download in your iBooks partner application (or you can always download an electronic version on Amazon)

In any style, you would like (or, more precisely, what your professor would like). You choose from Chicago, APA, MLA, whatever. It's an intuitive, beautiful, and seamless.
