Best Apps for School
August 29, 2017
We don’t have to tell you there is literally an app for everything. There are apps for how to play a guitar. There are apps for how to dress. There’s an app for how to fix your car. The newest app, just for your parents is ReplyASAP. Simply put, if you don’t reply to their text within three minutes, they can completely shut down your phone. Moral of the story, you shouldn’t ignore your parents. All of those apps are great, even ReplyASAP, but there are some that you need to get your hands on and soon, especially this time of year. The apps below are CNET’s 8 best apps for back to school. They include:
1. Simple Mind App
: It is designed to help organize your thoughts for your next paper. You type them in and Simple Mind helps make the connection to fit your assignment. You’ve got the data. This should help with the outline.
: Do you need to include citations in your paper? EasyBib allows you to scan the bar code. It then saves the information for later use as a citation. Always citing your source, just got a lot less cumbersome.
3. Super Flashcards (Android) or Flashcards+ (iOS)
: Input the information for both sides of your flashcard. Then as you quiz yourself, you can mark the problem cards to go back and review later. Cramming for that test just got a lot easier.
4. GoogleDrive (Android) or Dropbox (iOS)
: Great place to save your notes, so you can study wherever you are.
5. Google Now
: Set up your own reminders, get commute times, movie times, news, and sports. Plus, you have the simplicity of voice search -- perfect for the busy student.
6. RealCalc Scientific Calculator (Android) or PCalc (iOS)
: As long as your teacher is ok with having your phone in class, there is no need to carry a calculator.
: It is a fun, interactive game to help you practice for your language class. It awards achievements and even gives you reminders to play.
8. MyHomework Student Plann (Android) or iStudiez (iOS)
: It is a clean and simple planner to help you get and stay organized. You can schedule assignments, project deadlines, study groups, etc. Let’s be honest. Why carry a planner when your phone is always with you?
Are these all the apps out there? Not even close, but this should get you started to making this school year your most successful one yet. The biggest job you have is to remember to use these tools and…again, don’t ignore your parents!
Have a great year!
