iPhone apps for College Students

You spent a small fraction of your loan money buying a fancy iPhone because you wanted to parade on campus in style. While your new gadget is indeed nice to look at, it can also serve as a vital learning tool that can help you excel in school. Below are a few great apps every college iPhone user should download.

Sometimes the large amounts of coursework, projects and exams can get overwhelming. You forget what’s due and when. No matter if you own a personal planner, sometimes important dates can slip from your mind. So to ensure that you don’t forget to turn in your English Lit paper, download Date Wheel. This app uses a countdown tool to alert you on how many days you have left to complete a particular assignment or when an exam is coming up. Trying to study for a test? Cram Study is an app that uses flashcards and multiple-choice quizzes to help you prepare for exams. The app also documents your quiz grades so you can keep track of your performance.

Most professors will expect that as a college student you are aware of what’s going on in the world around you. Some will have discussions or even base lectures about newsworthy topics if it relates to your class. For this reason, it’s your responsibility to stay on top of current events. Google News and NetNewsWire are two great apps to keep you inform with local, state and world news.

Finally, one of the first things you’ll learn is that items seem more expensive when mom and dad aren’t paying for them. Save on pricey books by using SnapTell. This app compares online book prices. All you have to do is point your iPhone to a book jacket. You can also use Stanza to see if the book you need is offered electronically. This app gives you access to more than 40,000 free books and literary articles. If you’re trying to save money on food, try FastFood – Top Restaurant Finder. This app works as a fast food directory. It helps you decide what kind of food to eat and gives you a list of the cheapest restaurants in your area.
