When the iPad 2 was first released, there was a lot of hype about the Smart Cover because it seemed like a novel way to protect your screen. Well, the good folks at Evernote decided it could be used for much more and the Evernote Peek app lets you use the Smart Cover to try and improve your memory.
On its blog, the company described it as:
Evernote Peek is a free app designed to help you study, learn and strengthen your memory. Interacting with Peek is pretty intuitive. Once you’ve connected Peek to your Evernote account and selected your study materials, you simply close the Smart Cover and peek under it to see a clue. Raise the cover further to reveal the answer. To advance to the next clue, just close the cover and repeat.
I don’t know how useful this will actually turn out to be in the long run or if many other apps can actually work well with this Smart Cover but it’s nice to see some experimentation with the accessories. Let us know what your Smart Cover app ideas in the comments.
