Description

About Studyboost.com
Launched in 2009, Studyboost.com is a New York City based Technology education company. StudyBoost.com enables students and teachers to interactively study using text messaging and instant messaging. Students can create/search/contribute a batch of questions and then begin studying those questions using SMS and IM (ghat, Yahoo messenger, facebook chat and more). StudyBoost uses special commands such as 'next' and 'answer' to allow students to control the interaction with the questions and answers. We are gearing up to relaunch again for Fall 2014, but this time with bigger and better features.
