Just announced APICSLearnIt a new free app for iPhones and Android phones.

Ever wanted to check the meaning of a term?

The new APICS app APICSLearnIt allows you to do that, it also gives you a “term of the day” and its meaning and there is a flashcard game, see if you know the correct definition for terms. The game does need a little enhancement, get one wrong and you don’t know until you finish the session and it doesn’t tell you the error – hopefully they can make the necessary changes in an update.
