Tally is a free iOS application with a very straightforward purpose: it allows users to quickly tally numbers by simply tapping on the screen. Users can also create multiple tallies at once by swiping their screens to the right and can save tallies to their iCloud account or email, or text their tallies to anyone. Finally, Tally allows users to “count” in increments of any number (e.g. by twos or sevens.) So why use Tally? Users may find this app helpful in classroom settings or in meetings as an easy way to track participation. Others may want to use this app while playing board or card games.  This will be added to Entrepreneurial Resources Subject Tracer™. This will be added to Student Research Resources Subject Tracer™.

Brainscape – The Smartest Way To Study
https://www.brainscape.com

Whether you are learning a new language, studying for a standardized test (such as the GRE or the MCAT), or just looking to brush up on your knowledge base, Brainscape may be for you. This interactive flashcard program is offered both as a web browser and as an iOS or Android application. By creating a free account, Brainscape users can access a number of existing flashcard sets or create their own. As users go through each set, they rate their overall knowledge in confidence about each card. Brainscape then takes these self-ratings to engage users more frequently with the cards reported as challenging. Users can create a basic account for free; to access all available flashcards, users must purchase a subscription. There is also a version for Educators.
