New BlackBerry app tests, demoralizes students

Comments

The aptly-named Cram launched recently, offering customizable, shareable tests on your BlackBerry. Cram allows for students to keep on studying on the go, even when feverishly going over last-minute notes outside the exam room. Studying on your BlackBerry would be especially handy for the bus, when having a bunch of books out isn’t exactly practical. Cram can import text files which are then translated into multiple choice or fill-in-the-blank tests, and using some web functions those tests can be easily shared with fellow crammers. For the BlackBerry-packing academic, Cram would pair up nicely with StudentDocket (previously known as StudentBerry).

StudentBerryStudentBerry has been recently released, now letting go-getter academics keep close tabs on assignments and classes. Having been an arts student, I don’t know a damn thing about hard work or diligence, but surely there are some more business-like kids out there packing BlackBerrys and wanting to stay on top of their studies. Although it’s little more than a tweaked task manager, having things changed just enough for the student life makes it a nicely tailored piece of software. In the long run, there’s plenty of opportunity for close synchronization with BlackBerry’s native address book, calendar and tasks application. More info over here.
