An iPad App that Ingeniously Integrates the Smart Cover
By Apps / IO, 17 Jun 2011
The brilliant thing about Evernote’s new iPad app called Peek isn’t its interface or even what it does. Billed as the world’s first Smart Cover app, Peek makes ingenious use of the Apple cover to help students for their finals.
The free app is designed to help students study and strengthen their memories. By flipping over the first segment of the Smart Cover, a question is displayed on the tablet screen. To view the answer, all students have to do is raise the second segment of the cover; or, if they wish to advance to the next question, they can just close the cover and repeat.
The app also comes with score-taking functionality for students to rate themselves, and Peek will integrate neatly with Evernote’s flagship app.
The idea for Peek came to Evernote’s Phil Libin and Andrew Sinkov when they thought of the Smart Cover not as an accessory but as an “extension of the device”, Sinkov wrote in a blog post.
“It’s totally new, yet feels as familiar as lifting a page,” Sinkov added.
