Brightstorm Launches Homework Help iPhone & iPad App

Brightstorm has released an iPad and iPhone app to help high school and college students' homework needs. Brightstorm subscribers who download this app can access 3,000 high videos by expert teachers, with mobile-optimized UI.
Sept. 6, 2012 - PRLog -- Every school night, tens of thousands of high school and college students spend hours completing their homework and preparing for exams. These students are often on the go and use mobile devices to study. Brightstorm (, a leading provider of online learning services to high school and college students, is working hard to meet this need. To this end, Brightstorm has just released an iPad and iPhone mobile app for these students.

Brightstorm’s mission is to bring great teaching to the world. The company recruits the best teachers in the country and then works with them to create high-quality, video-based learning solutions. Brightstorm has over 3,000 homework help and test prep videos explaining topics found in Algebra, Geometry, Algebra 2, Precalculus, Calculus, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Grammar, Writing, PSAT Prep, AP Prep, ACT Prep and SAT Prep

With the new mobile app, Brightstorm subscribers can access high quality, time-saving videos from their iPad or iPhone. Quality includes both video production and great teaching.  Brightstorm films its videos in high-definition, and uses a video player to automatically adjust the quality of the video to the user’s bandwidth on their mobile device.

The videos are short and average about 5 minutes each. All 3,000 videos feature expert teachers -- most with Masters degrees and PhDs. For each topic, the teacher has a short video explaining the concept along with a few sample problems.

Quickly finding the appropriate video can be a struggle, especially on mobile devices. The Brightstorm app allows users to create a personalized homescreen where they can bookmark their textbooks and subjects. From this homescreen, they can easily jump into their subject or textbook to quickly find the video that meets their needs. The mobile app is optimized for both the iPad and iPhone so users have the most seamless experience as possible.

“Creating great videos is only a part of it,” says Bumsoo Kim, Brightstorm’s Co-founder and CEO. “Content is only good if the learner can find it quickly, so user-friendly browsing through topics and textbooks have been a major focus of this mobile app.”

All this adds up to a solution designed to be ultra-convenient for the user who needs convenient, just-in-time homework help on the go.

“It’s kind of like your back-pocket teacher, who can explain those difficult concepts to you.” says Alissa Fong, Brightstorm’s Algebra 1 teacher.  “You can review the video, and watch it over and over—from anywhere.”

Brightstorm’s mobile app is available with a 3-day free trial or subscription and is now live at iTunes
