SparkNotes hits Android, makes book reports that much easier

Next time you see a high school student in the US school system, ask them what they did their last book report on. Follow that up with “did you use SparkNotes?” and the odds are they probably did. For those unfamiliar with SparkNotes, it’s a website that provides helpful guides and chapter summaries to just about any book in existence. Pair that with lazy teenagers with access to the internet, and you’ve got a book report without the writer so much as touching a book.

So SparkNotes is already a website, what’s the next step? An Android app, of course! Just that is now available in the Google Play store, and it offers plenty to help you “study”. 50 study guides are pre-loaded in the app, with the ability to download many more. On top of that, there is a built-in social networking feature, so users of the app can connect and find out what others are studying.

Facebook integration is in there too, but we’d advise against it if anyone on your friends list could be dangerous with such information. And as always, we here at Droid Dog do not condone any form of cheating. Hit the Google Play source link to grab the app now, and be sure to let us know how much more fun you’re having studying with it.
