IMS introduces Study Buddy app for BlackBerry Smartphones

Telecom Lead India: IMS, a provider of management
entrance training, has launched Study Buddy app for BlackBerry smartphones.

Powered by intellectually rich and research-based
content, the app helps students prepare for competitive exams and offers mock
tests for premier MBA entrance exams such as CAT and CMAT. 


BlackBerry is a popular brand among the youth
today and Study Buddy is our way of making learning a lot more fun and
interactive for them. Looking at the increased smartphone usage among the youth
segment, there was a definite need to create this app, which helps students in
preparing and benchmarking themselves for aptitude tests,” said Kamlesh
Sajnani , MD, IMS.


The app also includes placement tests used by leading IT
and other organizations for campus recruitments.


Study Buddy offers tests based on variable
difficulty levels depending on the preparedness of the candidate. The Study
Buddy backend engine has a wide variety of questions in its bank that are
randomly selected based on the difficulty levels related to the various entrance
exams practiced by a student.


Developed by Omni-Bridge Systems, Study Buddy app is
available for download on BlackBerry App World. The application comes bundled
with Vodafone’s Campus Pack, which offers a customized BlackBerry
service plan.


  Using your phone while studying was traditionally
viewed as counter-productive, but today we see mobile technology empowering
students. Study Buddy is a smarter way to prepare for some of the toughest
exams in India and we are very pleased to support this launch together with IMS
and Vodafone,” said Sunil Dutt, MD, India, Research In Motion.
