5 Cram Licenses Up For Grabs

Cram is a great learning assistant for the Mac, with a flash-card interface and comprehensive testing functionality. If you’d like to know more, our review offers a good overview of what’s on offer. The great news is that we have five copies to give away, courtesy of SimpleLeap, the developers of Cram.

All you need to do to enter is leave a comment on this post, letting us know what you’d like to learn with Cram’s assistance. It could be anything from a new language, to the names of all your new office co-workers!

Five winners will be randomly selected in one week, on Wednesday 17th June. Best of luck, and as with all competitions, there’s just one legal point to make – you aren’t eligible to take part if you work for Envato.

To make sure you find out if you’re a winner, feel free to follow us on Twitter or via RSS!

  • I’m a Laguna Beach Ocean Lifeguard. To advance up the chain of command in my department, I’m currently studying to become an Emergency Medical Technician as well.

    The text book we use in class is over 1,000 pages long, and there’s a ton of medical terms and concepts that I’m trying to commit to memory before my final exam which is only three weeks away.

    Cram would be the perfect tool for this Mac addicted lifesaver to get the job done… and get it done right!

    “Erm, I think I’ll just use Handbrake then . . .”

  • I would use it to memorise Angelina’s sons names!!!

    … or maybe for my university exams in 1,5 months….

    That’s what I call timing because I just downloaded the “notecards lite” application for my iPhone to give it a chance but if I could get a free copy of Cram it would all be easier :-)

  • After not paying much attention at school 10 years ago in language class, I reckon Cram would be ideal for learning some foreign languages, so my choice of holiday vacation and ability to do business with those overseas could be improved!

Also, I’m going to be taking Chemistry next year, and it would be easier for me to remember atomic and mass numbers of different elements with Cram.
