Now that I’ve graduated from college, I really regret not using the iPhone to my advantage because there are so many apps out there that can help you perform better. Not just in class, but other aspects of your college lifestyle. Did you know that there is an app that can save you from wasting your brain’s memory? It’s called Reminders, a built-in application on your iPhone or iPad.
I don’t want you guys to be like me, wasting time studying the inefficient way, memorize more materials than I have to and other mistakes I made throughout my college years. That’s why I decided to come up with some of the most essentials iPhone apps for college students.
Hopefully, at least one of these apps can help you improve the way you study and live your college life.
7 Best college apps for iOS
Most of you have heard of Evernote before, but how many are actually using it? Not a lot right? Well, you should change that because Evernote gives you all the necessary tools to be a better student.
If you like to use your iPhone or iPad during a class lecture, use Evernote to take note. Jog down all the crucial points your professor is telling you, what needs to be included in the next writing assignment, and what you need to bring to the next class. Furthermore, you can also create a to-do list and store documents that you find online.
The good thing about Evernote is that it’s available throughout other platform such as computer and tablet. If you happen to switch to another computer, just sync it from your iPhone to the new device. That’s only for the first time syncing, everything else after will happen automatically.
Evernote is now available for download from the App Store.
How many times have you accidently misplace or deleted your essays or an important document? It wouldn’t be a big deal until you can’t retrieve it. That’s why it’s always crucial to have everything backed up. The Google Drive makes it easy to store your online documents, pictures, and other files…all in one place.
With the Google Drive app on your iPhone, you can view photos, PDF files, any kind of documents, videos, and much more. Easily share files and folders with other students and friends. Quickly go through the pile of records using their search option or recent activity.
Randomly disconnected from the Wi-Fi? No problem because you can still use Google Drive to view files offline.
Most college students are always on a tight budget. If there is any coupon or free stuff coming your way, definitely try to get it. What if there is an app that helps you get things done and reward you with free digital downloads or Lyft ride? Would you download it?
The name of this iPhone application is Any.do. It’s a reminder and to-do list app for iOS. With the simple interface, anyone can enjoy using it without a problem. Open the app, put down as many tasks you want to achieve as possible, set a timer or due date and Any.do will remind you.
When you complete a task, you collect points. When you reach a certain amount, it will randomly give you a product discount, free digital copy of a book, or a free ride with Lyft.
How ironic when we’re featuring an app that wants to replace the typical college system. Despite that, I think Udemy can be a useful resource for university students. It has classes that can prepare you for your next college course or give you a better understanding of a class you just took.
Students can also learn things outside of their major, such as a medical student learn how to code and potentially use that skill to work as a part-time freelancer. You never know what will interest you until you see it.
The calculator is something you can’t live without, especially in college. It doesn’t matter what your major is, some of the GE classes will require you to take math, and you will come across a problem that has a graphic in it.
This calculator can become handy as it provides a tool to input functions and exponentiation, graph up to four equation at once, find roots and intersections, graph different type of functions and equations, and much more.
This application is free so give it a try.
Do you often travel somewhere on your college break? Well, you need an app that can help you find cheap airplane tickets. The StudentUniverse app not only offers you discount on flights but also get you the most affordable hotels and tours.
With this application, it makes traveling fun and affordable for college students between 18 and 25. Most deals require you to show proof of attending such as college ID or class schedule.
Cmon, don’t pretend like you don’t know what most of us use Quizlet for. But now that you’re in college, Quizlet can be utilized as a flashcard maker and test yourself before a quiz or test.
You can create different flashcards, put your brain on a learning marathon, have fun while doing it using the game of Match. You can also use Quizlet when not having access to a Wi-Fi network. The app still lets you study and prepare for any subject (AP classes, the SAT, vocabulary, and much more.)
