Staying Alert Using iFlipTipsPro – iPhone/iPad App

Woman drinking coffee directly from a dispenserAs college students, we are always looking for ways to keep awake. Some of us are downing ridiculous amounts of energy drinks to keep alert in class, while others are making multiple stops to the local coffee shop as a daily necessity. Some of us are instant coffee advocates for our wallet’s sake, filling those thermoses four, five, sometimes six times a day! Up late last night partying or kicking butt on that X-Box Live with a dozen friends! Then it’s out for lunch today with parents trying to indulge them and the ‘quality time adage’. Then there’s the studying-frenzy deep into the grayish dawn light, until you find yourself rereading the same sentence ten times over before losing count. And finally there’s the crashing at our keyboards – you know how it is, waking up with the letter nnnnnnnnnn, in a frenzy of on-going pages in your word document. Ugh.

Stop vying for your skinny espresso, doubling up on shots with each passing month. Stop frantically searching for the best brand of energy drinks with the least calories. Stop stocking up on ‘just-add-water’ items. Get healthy, stay awake, and resist the tendency to spend money on those sketchy prescription alternatives. With iFlipTipsPro from TECHtionary, replace your caffeine fix with a new addiction that’s equally good while remaining natural.

Apples, and Oranges, and Carrots! Oh My!

This is a juicing method that requires a machinery purchase of sorts and an outlet for convenient plugging in. This method is probably the most effective of the four. You will be amazed at the amount of energy you’ll have coursing through your body. The negatives include the noisiness and requirement of a slight clean up. But once you’ve tried it, you’ll know why it’s worth the maintenance. First, use iFlipIdeas to take pictures of different juicing types and note the feature discrepancies with the audio tool. This way, you’ll find the best bargain. There are a number of superb juicers; it’s just a matter of what kind of extra characteristics you want for convenience. For instance, some require you to peel the fruit before hand; others allow you to drop it in entirely. Some juicers have one trash bucket and a grinder to clean; others call for a little more elbow grease.


Second, buy items on sale. You can use the iFlipPads to take a picture of the coupons in the newspapers to remind yourself of the sales, and write notes about ones to bring with you during your shopping trip. One of the best combos includes carrots, celery, an apple, and lemon. Some people are prone to trying this technique with berries, and although it’s possible and provides nutrition, it’s very little juice for each piece of fruit. Then there’s watermelon, pineapple, apples, oranges, spinach, carrots, and parsley! There are even recipes with garlic – but it’s a very pungent taste, so use sparingly. Keep a list of recipes that you experiment with in the iFlipCards section. The Q&A style format is perfect for taping videos of you making the combos, or adding reminders of which to alter and which to throw out. Put all the recipes in one folder with a different card representing each, or categorize the folders by main ingredients with various versions of the recipe. The folder system keeps all your notes, cards, and slides organized, and the archive section stores all deletions in case you want to revisit a forgotten recipe. The more you get familiar with your body’s response, you can pick out fruits that provide you with the most utilized vitamins for your liver, heart, eyes, and most importantly your mind! It’s like a surge of energy! If you’ve been eating poorly for the past few months with fast and junky food, or polluting your body with alcohol and other recreational substances, it can be such a cleansing boost – while making you nauseous. But if that’s the case, it does get better!

There are a lot of juicing joints that sell shots of wheatgrass for $1.50 and up! The problem with these places is that their drinks are normally supplemented with some sort of sherbert or yogurt which can be lower in calories or fat, but is still high in sugar. And wheatgrass can be grown by the tub in your own room, and doesn’t warrant the extra cost or a gag reflex. Don’t take wheatgrass on an empty stomach. If you do, you may find yourself feeling a very strong headache which is a good thing in essence because it’s healing damage done by toxins in your body, but can give you a bad experience. Another thing most consumers don’t know is that fresh juiced fruit and veggies lose their nutrient-value after the first ten minutes! Once it goes through that shoot, the extraction is at its’ highest peak, and it soon wanes with every passing moment. That’s why, if you were to drink it right after you made it, you’d have that wired energy to conquer everything on your to-do list! It usually lasts for a good eight hours with no crashing drop.


Ice your feet! This may seem crazy, but icing your body even when it’s already cold out is a mind numbing way to shock your muscles and bring you back to life! To do this you’ll need 1 pound of ice (but they usually sell it in 5-pound increments), a bucket, and mildly warm water. Fill the bucket halfway with ice and add the water. Since most students are in dorms with no tub, the feet way is a condensed version; otherwise you’d use 20 pounds of ice in your bath instead. Then just slip your feet in at once! This is a more instantaneous form of staying awake, and it doesn’t last very long, in fact, you may consider keeping it on a towel in a corner for the night in case you need it to refresh your senses while studying. oops keyKeep it away from outlets or electronics of any kind! Accidents happen! –This is a funny one though because you can take a picture or video of you and the puckered face you’ll make as you submerge your feet. Then, post it online via Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin or email so that everyone can comment on it. Use iFlipSlides to keep a record of it, and stage an on-going bet with the first post to see how many times you’ll have to do it during the night to keep you up. It’s a fun way to be interactive with your friends which will give you the adrenaline to keep your eyes pried open too.

If it’s mighty difficult for you to stay alert while commuting to school – sometimes you may even miss your stop – then try jogging in between classes. Even running in place is a good way to keep your heart rate up, get exercise, and stay in high spirits for the day. Or get up a little bit early to put in some dance moves! Jam out to your favorite song with your ear buds in, and shimmy your way to prepping for the day.

Find Some Fresh Air

app-whisper-recommendation-ifliptipsA lot of the time, we exhaust our mental capabilities by staring at a computer screen for hours upon end, or strain our necks pouring over notes. Record your notes for classes, verbally, with the audio tool in iFlipIdeas. Then, listen to a few sessions instead, while playing those games, or doing some light stretching, or even just taking a walk around campus. You may miss some things initially, but repeatedly listening to it will instill the information even so. Use iFlipCal to schedule small study breaks where you can listen to notes while still spending a few minutes away from homework. It might be all you need to come back with a brilliant idea for your essay, or the correct answer for that equation you’ve spent hours on. With the push notifications, you can schedule every important event including that extra ten minute dance session in the morning and down to the tiniest self-study reprieves!

With these suggestions, staying awake isn’t so damaging to the body. Having an on-hand device to help you makes it all that more impacting. Just make sure to catch up on sleep at some point. To avoid burning out, it’s recommended that you get at least a solid eight hours of undisturbed sleep once a week (that’s sufficient for us college kids) to make sure that your body receives the time it needs to organically repair and recharge itself.

iFlipTips as a Personal Organizer – iFlipDiary

ifliptips-iphone-1With more information to remember, more tasks to complete and more appointments to attend, it’s never been more important to have a suitable personal organizer. The iFlipTips app provides a handy way to keep all your personal notes, reminders, task lists and appointments in one place. The versatile nature of the app means you can capture thoughts and ideas as they occur to you during the day, and sort them into folders that provide you with the kind of organizational system you need.

Although the iTunes app store has plenty of existing personal organization apps, often these use complex systems that require just as much time to maintain as it takes you to do the tasks themselves. The systems used by these apps are often also rigid, so you have to organize your tasks and reminders in a method specified by the app, rather than being able to create your own system. iFlipTips is simple to use, but is so customizable that you can create the kind of personal organizer system that works for you, without having the app dictate how you should capture and save your tasks.

One way of using iFlipTips as a personal organizer is to create an iTips-Ideas folder for each day of the week. To do this, click on “View” under the iTips-Ideas heading, then tap “Edit” in the top right-hand corner of the screen, before adding a folder for each week day. You can also use the sub-folders to organize your reminders for each day into individual folders, such as “Tasks” and “Appointments”, so you can retrieve the information you need quickly.

This organization system also means you can organize your week’s reminders in advance, so you don’t have to remember tasks and appointments on the day. Spending an hour each week organizing your reminders for the next seven days can save you time and stress on each individual day, as all you then have to do is look up the information and be at the required place, or complete the required task, at the specified time.

One of the key pieces of organization advice you might hear is to separate private tasks and appointments from those associated with work. Using iFlipTips as a personal organizer helps you separate out your work life from your personal life. If you use your iPhone calendar for personal appointments, you can use iFlipTips to organize work meetings and deadlines, and vice versa.

The iFlipTips app’s folders system means you can keep all information you need in one place, including shopping lists, reminders and upcoming appointments, so you don’t need to switch between different apps to get the information you need. The variety mediums used in the app – text, image, video and audio – mean you can capture information in different ways. If it takes to long to describe a design or concept you want to discuss with a colleague using text, simply take a picture or video of it to show them later.

ifliptips-ipad-2 ifliptips-iphone-1Personal organization doesn’t have to be complicated. The iFlipTips app provides a helpful system that enables you to quickly store tasks and reminders for later, leaving you with more time to get on with doing what really matters.

With iFlipCards, you can create text, video, image or audio clips for both questions and answers, giving you flexibility to test yourself on your knowledge in a variety of ways and prepare for viva exams, presentations and training, as well as written tests.

The app is well-suited for students, and provides a helpful way to learn foreign languages, study concepts and ideas for essays, prepare for multiple choice exams and create prompts for talks and viva examinations. It also, however, has a wider reach, especially within the corporate world, and is the perfect tool to use for seminars and presentations.

Digital Catalogs Using iFlipTips

iFlipTips is a new note-taking app developed by TECHtionary. It takes the concept of traditional 3×5 flashcards, and translates it into a digital tool for your iPhone and iPad. The app allows you to create digital cards, which you can then store on your iDevice, using text, images, audio recordings and video clips. The cards come in three formats: iFlipCards are question and answer cards, iFlip-Slides are slide show-style cards, while iTips-Ideas card are note-taking cards.

iFlipTips is the perfect companion for students and professionals alike, as its format makes it highly versatile, and means it can be used for a variety of tasks, from studying for exams, to keeping a digital catalogue of business stock and services. If you run your own business, you can use the iFlipTips app to create a catalogue of your products, services, or both, that you can access and share with potential customers and clients with just a few taps.

If you want to use iFlipTips to create a digital catalogue, start by organizing the folders into a system that is suitable for filing your products or services. You can add as many folders and sub-folders as you like, so you have a lot of flexibility to create a customized folder system that works for your business. Possible folder systems include organizing products and services alphabetically, and creating separate folders for different sections of the alphabet. Alternatively, you can organize products by category, for example if you sell a range of home products, you can create separate folders for each room of the house.

Once you’ve created your folders, you can start creating individual cards for each product or service. To do this, use iTips-Ideas cards or iFlip-Slides. Using the text box, provide a description of the product or service, including any information that you would want to send to clients. You can include a picture of the product in the image section, which you can take with your iPhone or iPad. If relevant, you can also record an audio description, or create a video that explains how the product or service works.

The different mediums provide you with a chance to record exactly what your business offers, and to show potential customers and clients how your product or service works in as much detail as possible. Once you’ve saved your iTips-Ideas card or iFlipSlide in the correct folder, you can share your cards with others via email, Facebook or Twitter.

iTips-Ideas cards and iFlipSlides are useful for creating a catalogue of individual items, however iFlipCards can help you in a different, but equally as important, way. Designed in a question and answer format, you can use these cards to create a Frequently Asked Questions list that you can then use to answer questions from any potential customers or collaborators. This section of the app helps you prepare for customer inquiries and presentations, and prevents you being caught off-guard by unexpected questions.

Decades Party Planning Using iPartygram – iPhone/iPad App

A decades-themed party will provide all guests with an event to remember. Like the name suggests, this type of party is themed around a certain decade. The decade you choose it up to you. Although the theme is a popular theme, the number of choices you have means that no one party will be the same as the next.

The first step when planning a decades-themed party is to choose your decade. The decade you choose will influence the atmosphere of the party, so it’s important to choose wisely! Sixties and eighties are two of the most popular decades, as the style of dress is entertaining and it’s easy to find a good soundtrack from these decades too.

For a decades-themed party with a difference, however, you could also consider choosing the 1920s, and throwing a prohibition-themed party. Alternatively, you could also go back to the beginning of the 20th century, and choose a 1900s-themed party.

If you can’t decide which decade would work best, try assigning different decades to different guests. You can group guests into different decades in advance, include instructions for which decade to dress from in their invitation.

Whatever decade you choose, it’s important to make sure that the party music, food and decoration are consistent with the period. If you’re having a multi-decade themed party, try to incorporate aspects from each decade into the party itself. During the evening, you could provide food, music and games from different eras. You can either do this by starting at the beginning of the 20th century and switching decades as the evening wears on, or by dedicating a specific area of the room (or even a whole room) to certain decades. That way, guests can move around and sample food, drink and decoration from each different decade you choose.

A variation on a decade-themed party is to ask guests to come dressed as famous figures or characters from that period. For example, someone could come as Elvis or a member of the Beatles to represent the 60s, or Madonna to represent the 80s or 90s. This type of decades party can produce some interesting outfits, and give guests a chance to use their imagination.

When organizing a decade-themed party, you can use the iPartyGram app to send invitations to guests. iPartyGram lets you create invitations quickly and easily, and send them as a graphic via email. Using iPartygram, you can choose a customized background image to create professional-looking invites for free.

iPartyGram also provides space on each invitation so you can provide guests with instructions on what to wear, what to bring and any other relevant information. When guests receive their invitation, they also get a special iPartyGram login number. This allows them to access details about the party quickly and easily online. As party hosts are usually inundated with questions about dress code, what to bring and where the party is being held, this feature helps save you time so you can get on with the most important task: planning the party.

Study Planning Using Study App for iPhone and iPad

Creating a study plan gives you greater confidence and improves your organization. Mapping out the different subjects you have to learn, and their deadlines, also enables you to study more thoroughly for exams, as you can prepare for each test in advance rather than trying to cram all the information in at the last minute.

Each student has their own way of studying, so each individual’s study plan will be slightly different. Here are a few tips to help you create a study plan that is tailored to your needs and will help you achieve the results you want in your exams.

Make a list

Write down all the subjects you need to study, as well as the date of the relevant exam. If your exams are close together, you should aim to have done all your studying by the time the first exam arrives; otherwise you can afford to start studying for the some exams now, and leave others until a later date.

Be logical

Having made your list, you might be tempted to simply start studying for your upcoming exams in order of test date. To gain the best results, however, you should order the subjects starting with those that leave you feeling least confident, and save those feel most comfortable until last. You should also think about what grade you want or need to achieve for each exam. If you need all As, you’re going to have to put in more study time than if you just need a pass, so this will affect your study plan.

Make time

Take a calendar and map out times you’re available to study. Try not to over commit yourself as this will be stressful in the run-up to your exams. Instead, be realistic and include any existing commitments in your scheduling. Depending on how many exams you have and how much time you have to study, you should aim for around 2-4 hours of studying per day.

Start early

As well as starting your studying well before the exam period, you should also try to get as much studying done as possible early in the day. It is much better for your motivation levels if you can fit in 2-3 hours of study by lunchtime, rather than leaving it all until the evening.

Create smart notes

Use the iFlipTips app to create study notes that work. These digital flashcards help you memorize information in bite-sized pieces, improving memory retention and your ability to recall information. The more you break information down into smaller chunks, the more likely you are to remember what you’ve learned.

Include breaks

Every study plan should include time for breaks. We can only concentrate for around 30 minutes at a time, so if you carry on studying beyond this you’re unlikely to remember what you’re learning as thoroughly as you would if you took a break. Schedule in five to 10 minute breaks every half an hour to give you a chance to get a drink, stretch and relax.

Be gentle

If you’re finding it difficult to stick to your study plan, be gentle with yourself. This can be frustrating, especially if you’re under a lot of time pressure to learn what you need to know quickly. Try not to beat yourself up about slipping from the plan, and instead think about why you slipped. Are you trying to make yourself learn too much in a short time period, or are you giving yourself enough breaks? Go back to your study plan, make adjustments then start again.

Music Study Using iFlipTips Study Guide

Music isn’t a textbook subject – most of the learning comes from playing, listening and analyzing, rather than reading. That’s why iFlipTips, a new study app, is perfect for studying subjects like music that don’t necessarily fit the same learning patterns as other subjects, like math or geography. iFlipTips uses a combination of text, images, video and audio recordings to help you study for a test. Modeled on a 3×5 flashcard system, the app helps you break information down into bite-sized pieces, making it easy to remember and reducing the amount of time you have to spend studying.

The app has two sections: iTipsIdeas-Cards and iFlipCards. iTipsIdeas are helpful for the learning process, while iFlipCards help you test your knowledge so far. You can use text, image, video and audio in each section, meaning the app is even perfect for testing yourself on your knowledge of a subject like music, something that can otherwise be very challenging. The use of different mediums also leads to increased retention, so you can recall the relevant information in a shorter amount of time.

Whether you’re studying music performance, or your learning involves some theory too, you can use the app’s audio recorder to help you learn. When learning a new performance piece, recording and listening to an existing performance will help you learn quicker. Equally, if you’re learning music theory or practicing for a viva exam, you can use the audio recorder to create a learning library of different intervals, chord types, and chord progressions. The more you can practice listening for musical features, the better you will be at identifying them in exams, and iFlipTips helps you develop a faster recall of the information you’re learning.

The camera function can also help with learning theory, especially written music theory and composition. You can use the integrated camera to take pictures of chords, test yourself on intervals, and improve your knowledge of musical features like cadences. The text box is useful for adding additional written notes to aid your understanding of the subject.

The audio function integrated with the iFlipCards flashcards can also help you prepare for exams. Using the iFlipCard, you can create a mock aural test, quizzing yourself on chord progressions, scales, instrumentation and musical features. You can include all the answers to your mock exam on the ‘answer’ side of the card, in written, audio, or video format.

Performers can use the video function to prepare themselves for concerts and competitions. Recording practice performances before you do the real thing can help develop confidence. Knowing that the app is recording and ‘watching’ you simulates the effect of having an audience, and can help you feel more at ease with the idea of having a real audience during the actual performance. Once you’ve performed your mock concert, you can also use the recording to critique your playing and performance style – videoing your performance gives you an opportunity to improve on aspects of your playing that you might not be aware of otherwise.

When you start creating cards, you need somewhere to store them, and iFlipTips’ folders system provides you with the perfect way to create your own information library. You can organize the folders in a way that suits you, for example by stylistic period, by each individual module, or by composer.

Study Biology Using iFlipTips

iFlipTips is a new study app from TECHtionary that is revolutionizing the way we learn. Using iFlipTips, you can transform even the most difficult subjects into bite-sized chunks that are easy to remember and fun to study. iFlipTips’ use of different mediums means that the app caters for students of all learning styles, whether you remember by reading, watching, hearing or doing.

Once you’ve downloaded the app, you can create your own series of flashcards using text, images, audio clips and video. While traditional textbooks rely purely on students learning what they read, this combination of watching, hearing and reading leads to increased retention and shorter study times. The app’s use of images and videos means it is great for studying subjects that rely on diagrams and charts to communicate some of the information you need to learn for an exam – just like biology.

If you have a biology exam coming up, or want to make sure you’ve learned everything you need to know from the last semester, you can use the app to cement your knowledge, which can lead to faster recall when you need to use the information for a test later.

The iFlipTips app is divided into three sections: iTips-Ideas cards, iFlip-Slides and iFlipCards. Use iTips-Ideas cards to make written notes with the text box, record lectures with the audio recorder, use the camera to capture images of complex diagrams, and use the video function to record experiments or dissections. This feature is especially helpful when you’re required to write up a key experiment or lab activity as part of an assignment or for coursework, as you can record the session, and focus on what you’re doing instead of trying to remember every detail, or worrying about how much you’re going to remember later. Likewise, recording your lectures using iFlipTips means you have a comprehensive record of everything you’ve studied, and you don’t have to spend your energy and attention taking notes, but rather can listen to the information, and learn.

When it’s time to study for a big exam, you can create question and answer flipcards using the iFlipCards section of the app, and test your knowledge. Creating a mock-exam environment for yourself when you’re still studying means you’ll have more confidence when it comes to the real exam. As well as creating text-based question and answer cards, you can use the image function to take pictures of diagrams, then flip the card around to check that you labeled the different parts correctly. The video and audio recording functions also work with iFlipCards, so if you want to ensure you know the information you’re studying thoroughly, you can try creating a spoken question and answer exam for yourself.

You can store your cards in customized folders, organizing them so that you can access them quickly and easily in the future. For example, you might want to create a folder for each semester, with sub-folders for each individual module you study. Alternatively, you could create a folder for each module, and sub-folders for individual topics within that module. The folder system is simple, but completely customizable so you can create a system that works for you.

Social Selling Using iFlipTips

Based on 3X5 flashcards, iFlipTips is a new, versatile note-taking app that can be used for a number of professional and personal purposes. With extra features, including the ability to record audio and video, take images, and share content via Facebook, Twitter and email, this free app provides a quick and easy way to brainstorm, plan and manage social selling campaigns without having to rely on multiple programs. Since the app works on the iPhone and iPad, you can also create social selling campaigns while away from your computer, giving you extra flexibility and time to plan, prepare and execute a successful campaign.

The first step to take when setting up iFlipTips for social selling is to organize the folders into a system that works for you. iFlipTips allows you to create as many folders and sub-folders as you need to store your notes, so you have a lot of flexibility regarding the organization system you create.

If you are running multiple social selling campaigns at the same time, you can organize the folders by product or subject matter, so you keep each project separate. Alternatively, you can turn the folder section into a customized posting calendar, creating a separate folder for each week or month of a particular campaign. This calendar structure enables you to organize social selling campaigns well in advance, so you don’t have to rush to complete the work close to a deadline.

Uploading updates to Facebook and Twitter is easy with iFlipTips. Simply create and save an iTip-Ideas card, tap the share button and choose which network you want to send the card to first. iFlipTips is integrated with Facebook and Twitter, so you can log in to your accounts and upload material directly from the app.

iFlipTips’ text, audio, video and image capabilities enables you to create social selling campaigns with a visual flair, as well as text updates. Using the video function, you can add a personal touch to your campaign and upload videos directly to Facebook or Twitter without having to use a third-party hosting website. Videos can help create more effective calls to action, and can encourage followers to engage with your organization via Facebook and Twitter.

Once a campaign is finished, you can simply create a new folder for the next campaign. By organizing your updates and material into folders, you use the app to keep a record of past and current campaigns all in one place. This means that when it’s time to write a report or analysis of how your social selling campaign performed, you can quickly reference the material you used. When running a post-campaign analysis, you can create special cards in each folder to display statistics from each individual or week’s worth of updates. With this information, you’ll be able to see at a glance which updates in the campaign performed well, and which could have been improved.

Producing a social selling campaign is a creative process, but all too often that creativity can be sapped while figuring out how to use complicated social management software. Save yourself time by using iFlipTips, and expend your energy on what really matters: selling.
