I just can't remember that fact!
In BitsBoard, you can easily create your own study sets or download study sets from teachers and classmates. "By far the best educational app! A must have for any parent, teacher, or student!" It is a top awarded for education app. Tell your parents about it!
I Need a Copy of That!
Do you need a copy of something - or do your students want a copy of something to refer to later - then get the CamScanner app.
Turn your mobile device into a portable scanner with the CamScanner app. Simply take a photo of the page you wish to digitize, and the app will give you the option to convert it into a PDF/JPEG file, store in the cloud, and even print or fax the document. Best of all, it can extract the scanned text (Optical Character Recognition) and make your PDF files searchable.
