If you are at college right now, no doubt you are already using a variety of mobile apps to help you work and play.
Here are some of the best available right now for Android devices to help you get the most out of your time at college.
Apps for Studying
There are loads of apps that you can use to become more efficient with your studies.
One of these is myHomework, which allows you to add your homework, projects, and all your work into the app, providing you with quick access to everything in one place. You can also set reminders so you never miss your deadlines again.
My Study Life is another great tool that’s used by students and lecturers. It helps you to manage all of your homework, classes, deadlines, and more, making it a powerful tool.
One you’ve probably heard of already is Evernote, which is great for students. When it comes to note-taking apps, Evernote rules the roost. Even the free version provides enough functionality to save all your lecture notes, store essays and other files, and group projects together in notebooks and tags—all of which you can find easily through the powerful search feature
If you want to store your files online (as well as your music, movie, and photo collections), you have a number of options. Two of the best are Dropbox and Google Drive, both of which provide both free and paid-for storage so you can access all your files from wherever you are.
Apps for Finances
Managing your finances is important at college, otherwise you could end up with larger debts than you anticipated. Fortunately, there are many apps that can help you to manage your accounts.
One of the best is Mint, which is a free app that allows you to keep a close eye on all your accounts. It’s a great way to avoid going over your budget by keeping track of all your transactions.
And if you ever need to collect money from friends, Square Cash is what you need. This allows you to send and receive money with anyone, and you can cash it out directly into your bank. It’s safe, secure, and easy to use, so get all your friends onto it.
Apps for Out and About
College is not all work—you’ll also want to use the best apps for getting out and about.
One for coffee lovers is Starbucks, which will allow you to order drinks and pay for them, find the nearest store, and access special offers.
You don’t want to go out if the weather’s looking bad, so make sure you have a good weather app like Weather Live Free for Android. This provides you with detailed local and global weather forecasts, so you can access the forecast wherever you are and adjust your schedule accordingly.
Apps for Finding Deals
Whether you want to make your budget stretch further when you go out for the night, or you want to find some cheap furniture for your student accommodation, you’ll find an app to help you.
Groupon is one of the best apps for getting local deals on everything from events to restaurants. And if you need some second-hand furniture, you can’t beat the old classic eBay.
