Description

Ace your class with the help of CliffsNotes® To Go for Apple handheld devices. The brand you trust for fast, effective, and comprehensive literature review has been reinvented for the small screen to give you anywhere, anytime access to character, theme and plot summaries and analysis; interactive quiz features; and audio CramCasts covering the great works of literature.

As featured in Apple's 'Apps for Everything' Campaign

A Tale of Two Cities, by Charles Dickens, deals with the major themes of duality, revolution, and resurrection. It was the best of times, it was the worst of times in London and Paris, as economic and political unrest lead to the American and French Revolutions. The main characters in Dickens' A Tale of Two Cities - Doctor Manette, Charles Darnay, and Sydney Carton - are all recalled to life, or resurrected, in different ways as turmoil erupts.

Two distinct review modes in this app allow for a more customizable study experience.

• Prescriptive "Cram Plan, " created by the experts at CliffsNotes, orders the content of the app to turn just five minutes into an effective study session

• e-Reader interface provides the app's complete content, similar to the way you'd see it in the printed CliffsNotes books

Additional features that make the most of the Multi-Touch User Interface and media capabilities of Apple handheld devices include:

• Multiple-choice quiz to assess your mastery of the material

• Text-highlighting to note important sections for further review

• Interactive map links character associations and profiles for quick reference

• Audio plot summaries that play in the background while you work your way through the rest of the app

5/5 stars

High quality content; saved me for my test.

:
--Edit--
Please fix the spelling of "Sydney Carton" in the character map; right now it's misspelled as "Sidney Carton." Pretty embarrassing for CLIFFSNOTES, so please fix it quickly.

---Original Review---
This app is easy to navigate, and the content is exactly the same as on the CliffsNotes website (in other words, very good).

I chose this over the LitCharts because CliffsNotes has the character map, which is handy. It also has the quiz questions and CramCast. However, the "Cram Plan" feature seems too gimmicky to me, but that might be because I enjoy reading the entire book.

The only complaint I have about these apps are that they each take up an individual icon. I think it would make much more sense to have one CliffsNotes app, with downloadable content for each book; it would take up less space on the screen.

Still, a very good app from Modality and Wiley. But A Tale of Two Cities is such a good book, you should actually read the original text too!
