Highlighter pens, smartphones and textbooks are three school essentials for students that are united by AnkiSnap for the purposes of creating interactive studying games.

AnkiSnap sets itself apart from other studying tools by linking a textbook to one's smartphone. When a block of text is highlighted using the pen, this information is used to create a game that can be used to test one's knowledge. Rather than digitally saving the information to one's smartphone, AnkiSnap has users take a photo of an entire page. Any highlighted sections will appear as black boxes through the app, which deliberately challenges users to recall hard-to-remember information.

As well as being able to study alone, AnkiSnap users also have the option to share collected data with others, which is valuable for study group sessions.
