Yet with the First Aid™ Cases for the USMLE® Step 1 application on Ultrabook™ devices and Windows* 8 tablets with an Intel® Atom™ processor, users get a powerful and efficient new way to study for this exam.
The entire bestselling First Aid Cases for the USMLE Step 1 medical test preparation and review book, has been adapted for Ultrabook devices and Windows* 8 tablets with an Intel Atom processor. Featuring 400 illustrated cases, this comprehensive app helps relate basic science concepts to clinical situations. Each case includes drawings or clinical images with Q&As. Plus, Ultrabook devices enable users to keep track of their progress, take notes for each case, email notes, bookmark sections for easy reference and more.
When developing First Aid Cases for the USMLE Step 1, Expanded Apps took advantage of its status as an Intel® Software Partner, which provides assistance with business planning, product development and optimization, marketing and more. In particular the company accessed Intel tools, code and support to help optimize this app for the powerful capabilities of Ultrabook devices. Expanded Apps also received additional insight from the communities in the Intel® Developer Zone.
“Having Intel as a partner during the development process was certainly helpful,” said Skye Van Raalte-Herzog, CEO of Expanded Apps.. “It helped make the development much smoother and easier.”
With the combination of Intel® Core™ processors, visually rich display and touch capabilities in Ultrabook devices, users get a powerful new way to study complex medical knowledge.
“Learning and studying has never been more efficient and powerful than it is with medical-related content on Ultrabook devices,” said Skye Van Raalte-Herzog.
The development support and capabilities of new Ultrabook devices has inspired Expanded Apps to continue development of new apps that take advantage of the capabilities of Ultrabook systems.
“We are excited to continue exploring and creating new apps that engage people in exciting new ways,” Van Raalte-Herzog noted. “Ultrabook devices certainly offer a powerful way for people to interact with and benefit from new apps.”
