As students we all love to utilize new technology in many different forms. We use apps for fun and games, but when we have to get serious and hit the books there are many wonderful apps that can help us streamline our schedule and get busy. Here are some of my favorite and most useful apps for school.
1. iProcrastinate- The name says it all. It’s a simple task management application that allows you to assign priority levels to each scheduled item. It also syncs wirelessly with iProcrastinate for your Mac, over the internet via iCloud, or Dropbox.
2. Bamboo Paper- No need to buy paper! Bamboo Paper works as a sketchpad or notebook for taking notes and completing class assignments. You can easily save and archive each document for sharing with your friends and classmates. With this app you have a choice of blank, lined, or graph paper and several pen sizes. Personalizing your assignment has never been so easy.
3. Cram- This is a terrific little flashcard app so that you can quiz yourself to practice for those upcoming exams. You only have to enter in your questions and answers once. Perfect for preparing for those pop quizzes your professor likes to give you.
4. Math Formulas- Don’t be afraid to take that Calculus class! This app has every math formula and calculation that you could ever need in it. You can also use it to help build your own formulas.
5. DropBox Mobile- This is a free service that allows you to bring pictures, files, and videos with you anywhere. Any file you save to DropBox will automatically be backed up to your computers, phones, and also the DropBox website. Very convenient and quick file sharing.
6. Pageonce- This is a free application that organizes and tracks all of your finances such as credit cards and cash. It also helps you track where your money goes and has a bill pay option. This is your basic financial blueprint at your fingertips. This is very convenient for budgeting on the go.
There are so many amazing options for students to utilize the technology they crave to their advantage. There is truly an Application for everything and when you are a student, the opportunities are boundless. More and more students are cutting the pencil and paper budget and using the wide variety of apps out there to their advantage.
