Boundless Textbooks: iPhone App for On-the-Go Studying

image

Boundless Textbooks (free, $19.99 for in-app upgrade) is an app designed to help college students save money on textbooks and study on the go. Boundless covers more than 20 subjects, including biology, business, chemistry, physics, and sociology. Introductory textbooks are free, while full-course books are $19.99 each. Boundless is something I could have used in college when I spent hundreds of dollars on books every year.

The book I checked out was a psychology textbook, Discovering Psychology: The Science of Mind. I always find it a little difficult to read things on my iPhone because of the small screen, but the words were easy to see and nicely formatted.

Your iPhone works as the GPS device. Go out for a ride and then view your activities on Strava.com.

As you can see on the image above, it took my friend less than 2 hours to complete the 18 mile race, climbing 1,500 feet in elevation (already starting at 6,900 feet!).
