  • Test prep giant Kaplan and game maker Aspyr Media have adapted their SAT test prep video game, FutureU, for iPhone and iPad devices. FutureU is expected to be released next week, but Mashable got an early sneak peak. The free FutureU SAT study game — which includes four $1.99 in-app premium upgrades for additional levels — will soon be available as an iOS application to students looking for a mobile interactive way to prepare for the SATs. The application includes games designed around three key study areas: reading, writing and math. The reading games are designed to improve player vocabulary and refine the app user’s ability to find themes and arguments. When it comes to writing, FutureU games cover a smattering of topics to help users with run-on sentences, misplaced modifiers, tenses, subject-verb agreement and so on. The mathematics games focus on algebra, geometry, statistics and probability. -Mashable
