University life can be tough. Working hard isn’t the only way to get through it; it’s about working smart, too. And when we say smart, it’s not just about acing exams or getting to the top spots. It’s also about making the most of the resources at your disposal (time, technology, and energy). You may want to check these mobile apps to navigate with you through student life.
If You’re Having A Hard Time Waking Up on Time
Your habit of snoozing the alarm has met its demise with Alarmy. Alarmy’s alarm only stops after you succeed in a certain mission. Choose from "Shake Mode," "Memorize Game Mode," "Photo Mode," or even "Math Problem Mode."
For Managing Your Time, Tasks, and Everything Else
Having a to-do list is no doubt an effective way to be organized and efficient, but not if you have your lists all over the place. Squeeze everything into a single screen with Any.do. Color-code tasks, sync calendar events, add checklists, add subtasks to checklists, and set categories and priorities. Don’t forget to add time to breathe, too!
Take Better Notes
Go paperless and take your notes with a click of a camera. Downloading CamScanner makes it more noteworthy as it can scan files and convert it to jpeg or PDF files. You can do as much as collate, highlight, and edit texts with the app.
The stakes are high; you really can’t risk being distracted. Download Offtime, a study app that limits your phone’s access to social media, calls, SMS messaging and other distracting apps. Offtime is best for social media detox!
Stay Within Your Budget
Keep track of your expenses and more with Mint. This mobile app can do as much as report your spending habits and recommend where to allocate better. The app also reminds you to pay your bills on time. Think of it as having a secretary-slash-accountant on hand.
Mint is free and available to download in IOS.
Cite and Save
Thesis is one of the most challenging requirements in college, and creating references is most definitely the most tedious task. Luckily, Citationsy does the task of most search engines and long library work. Simply scan a book’s barcode with the app and it can generate a citation of your choosing.
While there are mobile daily planners and organizers, there’s one that can assist in your “number 3s.” San Bidet is a mobile bidet-finder app that helps you find the nearest public establishment with an available bidet hose. Perfect if you’re looking for a place to study out.
Take your chance and download these apps now because trust us, you’ll need these even after college.
