[prMac.com] Annapolis, Maryland - Mobile educational app developer gWhiz, has teamed up with Florida Virtual School(R) (FLVS(R)), the leader in Kindergarten-12 grade online education, to redesign its popular meStudying(R) educational app series for iTunes. By combining the content from previously separate apps into one, users who download meStudying have instant access to a growing library of titles including Algebra I, AP English Language, AP English Literature, AP Microeconomics, and AP Psychology. What's more, the initial download provides access to a set of free questions in each topic, expandable to many more through in-app purchase.
The new multi-player gaming feature included in the meStudying app is designed to appeal to middle and high school students, who spend time communicating with their friends through virtual mediums. Now users can challenge one or more friends to a virtual study duel to test their knowledge.
"We believe in the marriage of innovation and education to create compelling mobile apps that draw students in," remarked Kevin Reville, gWhiz founder. "Our latest meStudying(R) mobile app is designed to appeal to the social nature of secondary school students with its innovative study-with-friends game feature."
Busy students will appreciate the opportunity to practice their skills on the go. The meStudying app gives users an effective way to assess their current knowledge level and develop a personalized study plan. Beyond simply reviewing the material, users have the opportunity to flag questions and create customized quizzes, allowing for easier review of problem areas. Users can also access detailed analytics to review their quiz history and statistics, including their weekly progress and category strength and weaknesses. Offering a thorough review of key concepts and facts in a socially engaging way, meStudying is a great study tool for all middle and high school students.
