Five Apps for Students

Few things do we appreciate more than when people chase their dreams and accomplish their goals. For some of you, that may mean getting a degree in a specific area or continuing your education. Education is both rewarding and challenging, but the challenging aspect should mold you into a better person, not hinder your progress. Whether you just registered for next semester, are preparing for summer courses, or your children just received their acceptance letters, here are our best recommended apps for students to make life easier!

MyHomework: MyHomework is an virtual bulletin board that allows students to split up their classes and post their tasks and schedule. Accessible from the web, smartphones, and tablets, MyHomework acts as a school-specific agenda. With tabs for classes, teachers, assignments, and due dates, it is a pocket-sized, fully mobile stop for everything they need to know as they move throughout the days in the semester.

Dictionary.com: This is a standard must-have for any student. Whatever they are studying, they will read, come across words they do not know, write, and need to use words they are not familiar with. In the age where nearly every essential fits in our back pocket or clutch purse, no one has space to carry a dictionary. Dictionary.com is a free mobile app providing full access to a dictionary and thesaurus. With quick and easy access, this app is a paper saver! (Literally!) This app is available for free in both the Apple and Play Stores.

Bamboo Paper: Perfect for tablets, but available on smartphones as well, Bamboo Paper creates virtual notebooks. From sketch books to college ruled, Bamboo Paper cuts the bulk notebooks, cost of paper, and risk of illegible handwriting by consolidating everything into an organizational virtual destination. The student can create a notebook for each subject and access it in class or on the go.

DropBox: Ask any student who pressed the wrong key on page 27 of their 28 page paper, or any student who turned in their paper late because their hard drive crashed. Student Survival Rule #1: BACK UP! DropBox allows you to save and store all of your documents, photos, and media, as well as share them with others. Perfect for instructors, group projects, and remote access, everything saved in DropBox is safe as long as you need it! This app is available for free in both the Apple and Play store.

iFormulas: Whether you’re number savvy or mathematically challenged, iFormulas needs a spot on your iPhone. iFormulas provides a database of every math formula a student may need to help them with their homework. We doubt that professors will allow its use during exams, but it provides a neatly organized database with easy access while you learn! This app is available for free for iPhones.
