What is the history and popularity of the app?

In August of 2007, a unique learning tool called iKnow! was introduced to the internet. In March of 2009, that tool was renamed Smart.FM. Smart.FM was created by Tokyo based Cerego Japan, Inc. The Cerego team wanted to revolutionize education by creating the “learning platform of the future.” Smart.FM certainly lives up to the task, offering users a better way to gain knowledge and practice what they learn as they go. Today, Smart.FM provides a number of tools that can help anyone make the most of the learning experience.

What are the differences to other apps?

Smart.FM isn’t just a resource of information, it’s an intelligent learning tool unlike almost any other available online today. The application tells users what to study and when to study it. As the user progresses, Smart.FM measures how they do and makes any necessary adjustments so the user is always right where they need to be to retain maximum information from their studies.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

The Smart.FM website offers users an ideal environment to learn. The blue and green color scheme creates a pleasant atmosphere that encourages users to check out what Smart.FM can do for their minds. A new visitor catches a glimpse of what they can learn through featured goals posted on the homepage. The Smart.FM interface is very easy to use and clearly breaks down each element of the lesson so the user can quickly see what they need and learn from it. The site challenges users through learning and information rather than through navigation and layout.

How does the registration process work?

A new user can create a Smart.FM account by clicking on the white “Sign Up” link at the top right hand corner of the homepage. The user can login using Google, Yahoo, Facebook, Twitter or MySpace. There is also a traditional registration form that asks for a username, email address and password. After entering the information, the user can click on the blue “Signup” button found just below the form. After submitting the information, the user is directed to their profile and can begin accessing Smart.FM features.

What does it cost to use the application?

One of the other interesting aspects of Smart.FM is the price. Anyone can create an account and use Smart.FM for free. There are no costs and no premium paid account listed on the site as of yet. This is due, in part, to the fact that the user community creates content for others to access. Anyone who choosing an existing goal is using content added by another user. This format works really well because users can benefit from their collective knowledge and Smart.FM offers its services for free.

Who would you recommend the application to?

Many people can benefit from using Smart.FM. Students can discover a more effective way to study, individuals can make good on personal education goals, and anyone else that needs to gather information and knowledge can do so more efficiently through Smart.FM. The tools are relatively easy to use. They are also versatile to work with many different types of learning.
