Let’s get these apps while we’re feeling amazingly motivated (offer ends third week of semester when everyone can’t be bothered attending lectures anymore).
1/ Any.do –
Who doesn’t love a minimalist to-do list with a touch-based interface? Any.do can be organised into Work, Personal and Grocery List tasks, which can further be divided into Today, Tomorrow, Upcoming and Someday tasks, which can then be sub-divided into smaller tasks. And if you’re feeling really fancy, you can even use your voice to check tasks off the list.
Every student has experienced the need to find all their books on their mile-long reading list. But Scribd has a growing archive of 500 000 books from over 900 different publishers allowing you to keep a library on your tablet, smartphone and web browser.
3/ EasyBib –
For all your referencing needs (at 11:55 pm). Just enter in the title and the citation is automatically generated in any format you require. You can even scan the book’s barcode, as well as save and share references to help other students out
4/ Studious –
Organise your classes and schedules using this timetable app. You can even sync up your timetable with your friends’ (or see who you can avoid)
5/ CamScanner –
Your phone instantly turns into a portable scanner, allowing the digitization of documents for easy storage and access. It also has multiple export options as well as other features such as automatic cropping and lighting functions
6/ Itunes U –
Browse through hundreds of courses relevant to your field or other interests all from leading universities around the world
7/ Alarmy: Sleep if you can ($2) –
Now we don’t need to set alarms for 7:00 AM, 7:10 AM, 7:15 AM… With Alarmy you need to either shake the device a certain number of times or take a photo of a specific object to shut it off.
8/ Mint –
Keep track of all your costs and spend within your budget. Best of all, it can organise your expenses for you
9/ GoConqr –
Take notes, make mindmaps, flashcards or quizzes to help you study
10/ Evernote –
What list of necessary apps is complete without Evernote? This is an all-in-one workspace where you can write articles, organise documents and photos as well as upload and share them.
