I’m happy to announce a new feature in iCardSort that lets you automatically stack all the cards in a single stack in the middle of the screen.
You’ve always been able to manually create stacks (that’s the whole point of the app), manually create a single stack and to scatter the cards with a menu option but now you can also bring all the cards together into a single stack.
The app has become popular for many uses including education. People use it for all kinds of categorization, brain storming, teaching, research, planning and all kinds of sorts. Sometimes its useful to shuffle and scatter the cards to be sorted and sometimes it is less distracting to put them in one stack and sort the card on top.
I hope you enjoy this new flash cards style feature.
This is quick post to let you know that the first beta build just went out to testers. There is still time and room on the list if you want to get involved, see the next features and help shape the app. Just get in touch through the contact form and let me know.
“One of the best ways to help kids construct their own understanding of content is through sorting.”
Also, iCardSort was recently in this article by Paul France. If you have stories on how you use the app or decks you want to share let me know. I’d be more than happy to post decks, retweet, etc and help share your work.
In the Techchef4u podcast on Blog Talk Radio educators & App Enthusiasts Lisa Johnson & Yolanda Barker review iPad brainstorming apps Tchart, iBrainstorm, Simplemind+, Stickyboard, Idea Sketch, and iCardSort. iCardSort coverage starts around 24:10 into the show. They give some great ideas on how to use these iPad apps in the classroom.
I’m happy to be working on the next version of iCardSort and have some exciting features and bug fixes planned.
We’ll be ready to start beta testing soon and will need a few volunteers. You just need an iPad and the willingness to test a separate (temporary) version of iCardSort and report back any problems you find.
