What is it about?

Flexcil is a robust choice for digital studying, with great control over how you digest the information. You can easily highlight passages with Apple Pencil, and then drag them into your study notes.

Why we love it

The developers behind Flexcil have thought of just about everything you might need when studying. Not only is the app useful for copying text into your notes, but it's also got plenty of usefulness for marking up PDF documents and getting more information from them. If you highlight a word with a gesture, you can even look up that word or phrase in the dictionary. The app works well for annotating passages, allowing you to highlight or underline them for easier study later. One very nice feature is the app's third-party integration — you can easily bring in PDF documents from iCloud, Dropbox, and Google Drive. This is a robust app for PDF annotation and studying, and the developers are hard at work expanding its usefulness to other digital book formats.
