I have an IT certification exam coming up, but I commute and I need to be able to study on my phone. When are you going to offer the flashcard mobile app again?

After a successful beta run, we are proud to announce that the new and improved TranscenderFlash mobile app has been released for both Android and Apple devices.

At long last, the question pool is no longer limited to just a few titles. After you download the TranscenderFlash app, you can access our ENTIRE catalog of practice tests through a simple in-app purchase.

What hasn’t changed: the new app kept the same easy, intuitive interface and adjustable display. Simply tap a card to flip it over and reveal the answer, then click the check or the X mark to indicate a pass or fail. The app reports your self-grading at the end as a percentage of correct or incorrect cards.

One reason the flash card app is an ideal study tool is that you can run through it as many times as you like before you actually grade yourself. Just read the cards but leave them unanswered until you’re ready, then do a self-grading pass. The bar chart button will show your overall results, which shows you which knowledge areas still need work.

The scoring report will tell you how many you had correct, incorrect, or unanswered for each objective in a vendor’s exam.

The app comes with nearly 200 sample flash cards drawn from some of the industry’s top vendor exams, including but not limited to questions from PMI, Cisco, Microsoft, Oracle, and CompTIA.

Sample flash cards are available on the home screen. Click a title to start testing.

The TranscenderFlash mobile is free to download and does not include ads. Our full flashcard decks with hundreds of questions each are available for $19.99. Check it out and let us know what you think!

Happy studying!

The Year of the Developer

Did I get your attention? I hope so, but let’s be honest: it’s been the Year of the Developer since 1954. As wonderful as it is to have the latest gadget goodness in your hand, without developers, that gadget does a whole lot of nothing. Arguably, the adoption of shiny devices and powerful operating systems is directly proportional to the software that runs on it.

But I do have a more salient point beyond giving the developer community a pat on the back.

Development in 2012

What does the future look like? Better yet, which skills should you focus on in the upcoming year? Justin at TechRepublic actually beat me to the punch on this one, so rather than rehash the whole article, I’ll just throw in my two cents.

Mobile Development

This one should be fairly obvious. What isn’t so obvious is how fragmented the mobile field really is. An iPhone, Android, and Blackberry device all do very similar things and contain very similar components and UIs, but the back-end development for these platforms is entirely different.  Let’s not even discuss the form factor differences between these smartphones and their tablet cousins.

I predict the ascendance of uniform development kits like Red Foundry and  PhoneGap/PhoneGapBuild to level the playing field. PhoneGap, in particular, leverages Web development skills such as jQuery and HTML5.
