In addition to research tools, Noet’s mobile app lets you customize your research environment to save you time and make your research more effective. One way to customize your research environment is with Noet’s dual panel view.
Read two books at once
Whether you’re studying the thought of Francis Bacon or the grammar of the Iliad, it is often helpful to have two books open at the same time (such as a dictionary or lexicon). Unless you have long, nimble arms and like doing all your reading at a desk, this can be tricky with traditional books. Not with Noet! With Noet, you can have two books open on your screen at the same time. Just slide the grey panel-splitter at the bottom right of the screen to the middle to expose the second panel. To choose a new book for the bottom panel, tap on the title of the book and select a new title from the library. That’s it!
Scroll related texts together
When studying classical texts, it is often helpful to have the English translation open at the same time as the original language text. Adding to the complexity of having two books open, you need to flip pages in both books at once! Not with Noet! With Noet, related texts scroll together, keeping both your texts on the same page as you read. To enable this function, press and hold the panel-splitter tab, then slide the button for linked panels to yes.
See more of what you want
Want to see more of one text? No need to close the other, just slide the panel-splitter tab up or down to adjust the panel size. Even if you hide one of the texts the panel linking still works. Just move the slider back to the middle and pick up where you left off.
Read three books at once!
Let’s say you’re studying Homer’s Iliad in English with the Greek text below and you run across a Greek word you’re not familiar with. If you just need some basic info on the word, there’s no need to close the text and open a lexicon. Just long press on the word in question, select ‘Look Up,’ and Noet will give you a quick summary of the key information about that word.
Need even more information on the word? You can run a search or a word study from this same window.
If you long press on an English word and tap ‘Look Up’, Noet opens up another window with a complete definition and etymological information. Just press ‘done’ when you have what you need and Noet takes you back to the two-panel view.
The Noet mobile app allows you to customize your research environment to help you study better and save your time.
