The last few weekends of August and the first few weeks of September are filled with a whirlwind of college activity. Students are moving in, setting up their rooms, making new friends, battling homesickness, starting classes and acclimating to a looser schedule and different learning style than they’ve experienced for the first 12 years of their formal education. Luckily, there are a slew of apps to help with almost every aspect of a student’s new life at university. Check out these apps highlighted by CNet:
If you don’t know what it is, it’s a cloud-based note-taking app that automatically syncs from device to another. Transcribe your English notes on your laptop, and they’ll show up on your smartphone whenever you need them.
The app allows you to save websites, news articles, or online research documents for offline reading later on. This is perfect for that long subway ride when there’s no Internet connection. It’s even more useful if you have a tablet with no Wi-Fi or cellular connection.
For Android users, why not wake up in style? Doubletwist offers a more attractive alarm clock than the typical stock version. The two versions — an analog clock and retro flip clock — can be tied to your favorite tunes, giving you a wake-up call of your choosing.
