Ever been in a situation where somebody threw out a word or phrase that EVERYBODY knew but you? Are you a student and need help figuring out where to start studying for a particular subject? Are you a parent with "hip" kids and you don't know what the heck they're talking about sometimes?

QuickStudy is a tool that helps you quickly learn about keywords or phrases... without you having to figure out which way is up.

We start with a search, and whatever we find is summarized into a few bullet points (using Natural Language Processing) so you can decide if you want to explore that result further or not.

We've completely revamped how the app works to make if faster, more robust, stable and a joy to use.

Interactive Features:
- Cortana Integration! 
----> Just say, "Cortana, QuickStudy " and what you're looking for.
----> Tap the microphone icon to use your voice!
- Search taking too long? You can cancel it!
----> Just tap the animated search icon and it will stop as soon as it can.
- Tap the globe icon on a result to visit that source.
- Tap the folder+ icon to add the result to a list to be shared.
- Tap the folder- icon to remove the result from a list to be shared.
- Tap the share icon on the result to share only that result.
- Tap the share icon in the menu bar at the bottom to share selected items (after you've selected them using the folder+ icon).


We'll be adding more features soon (including a feedback mechanism). If you can't wait to tell us what you think please email us at quickstudy@outlook.com!
UI
------------------------------------
- Fixed the Cortana integration bug.
----> It should just work now. Please let us know if you run into further issues with it.

- Fixed the behavior of the "X" on the search field.
----> It should just work now. Please let us know if you run into further issues with it.

- Updated how you show and hide the icons for individual results.
----> Now you can tap anywhere in the summary to bring up the icon bar.

- Added support for if the system detects certain types of crashes.
----> If you experience a crash, and it's one we're allowed to handle, there's a way to tell us about it the next time you launch the app.
----> We'll expand this further in future releases.


Voice
------------------------------------
- Cortana sounds less like a crazy person now.
----> This is still a work in progress; hopefully she sounds more humanly conversational.  ;)

    Nice way to either stay on top of things or to become more enlightened on a subject you're not so enlightened about. Very well designed.
