Hey friends! I’ve discovered that these apps have been really helpful in my college career. I hope that these will help you as well.
This is number one because I believe that this app is partially responsible for the times that I get good grades on tests. Basically, Quizlet is a place where you can make notecards online and turn them into many different studying tools. For example, once you make a set of notecards on the website, you can change it to a study guide, printable notecards, and even play games with the terms. Once you create a set, you can download the app on your phone and practice the terms on your phone whenever you want. I usually use Quizlet when I’m waiting for a class to start or have a little chunk of time where I’m not doing anything. It’s addicting!
Basically, what I’m trying to say with this one is that everyone needs to have some sort of news app on their phone. And make sure that your alerts are on, so that you can be constantly updated on what’s going on in the world. It’s important.
3. Meme Generator
Maybe I’m the only one who takes tons of funny pictures of my friends. But I doubt that.
4. CalenMob Calendar
This app was my saving grace last year. This calendar app combines your iPhone, Google, and social media calendars all together in one giant calendar. There’s multiple different views and it’s easy to maneuver. (And planners are expensive these days).
It’s simply a more convenient way to access EasyBib, which I know you all already use anyway.
Just because we’re college students, doesn’t mean we automatically know what big words mean. I only wish my professors knew that.
TED Talks are so good, and they don’t make me feel like I’m wasting my time unlike social media sometimes does. It’s informational, educational, and interesting all at the same time. I suggest listening to them when you’re driving somewhere or getting ready in the morning.
I always get these random urges to learn weird languages. It never lasts long, but at least I have an app that can fulfill that desire for the time being. It’s also a good thing to do when you have a little bit of time to kill and want to feel like you’re being productive.
9. Safe Trek
This app is helpful to use if you feel unsafe in a situation. Basically, this is how it works: You open the app and press down on the screen if you’re in a potentially harmful situation. Once you’re out of the situation, you lift your finger and enter a code that you picked. If you never end up putting in the code, the police will be contacted. It’s a good medium between doing nothing and calling 911. You never know when you could need an app like this one.
That’s all I have for you this week. If you can think of any other useful apps, feel free to comment below!
