The company deposits the credited funds into the student’s Amazon account and that money can be used for new books.

    Thanks for this list! (I’m always looking for good tips on using my iPad).  Another great app that is use all the time is Circus Ponies Notebook, at http://www.circusponies.com.  Its just like using a paper notebook except on my iPad.  Before class I grab today’s lecture notes PDF from my profs website and Notebook lets me add the PDF to my notebook as separate pages.  You can add text notes and scribble right on top of the pages, and swipe back and forth to switch pages.  When I don’t have the prof’s notes I just add a new page to my notebook and start typing notes (it has an outliner built in).  It even records the lecture so that I can go back later and listen to it again if I ever miss anything.  Its great!
