Apps for Aptitude is a non-profit organization (501c3) run completely by high schoolers. It was established for the purpose of reducing illiteracy rates within the in the greater San Antonio area and to fight technological illiteracy across the nation. San Antonio has experienced a growth of literacy rates- about 25% of the population is illiterate or functionally illiterate. This alarming rate and the fact that the majority of students are not knowledgeable in computer programming has fueled our desire to lower these rates. In order to do this, Apps for Aptitude has created a educational flashcard app called Cards for Cause, which is targeted at the common high school student struggling to study their material while on the go.The proceeds from the app will be donated to organizations in San Antonio that were established for the purpose of fighting illiteracy; thus enhancing education for everyone. First, you sign up for a submission service. Then, you send in your study flashcards/ review materials (may even be in the form of an excel spreadsheet) to be examined by the app's team. Once your cards have surveyed, they will be reiterated back to you in our app! What a perfect solution for students who are very involved or constantly busy.
