Acorns

Acorns is a fantastic app to help you save money. As a student, it can be difficult to manage your finances. Paying for food, living costs, utilities and tuition doesn’t leave much left to save. However, if you can save at least a small emergency fund it could end up being exceptionally useful in the future. Acorns connects with your bank accounts, monitoring your income and outgoings. It then takes out a small amount you can afford, at a time when you won’t miss it. You won’t even know you are saving.

Pinterest

Pinterest is a brilliant resource, for almost everything. If you fancy something different for dinner, check out Pinterest. If you need an idea for a birthday gift, Pinterest will have it. It’ll even have information to help with assignments if you know what to search for.

Uber

Get a car when and where you need it, with the touch of a button. This is especially useful if you are moving to a new town and don’t know your way around yet.

Evernote

Evernote is the best app there is for studying on the go. Make notes, lists and even add photos, on your smartphone, wherever you are. Then automatically have access on your laptop or other devices.

StudyBLue

StudyBlue will be a huge help when it comes to exam time. StudyBlue makes revision flashcards for you, using information and materials relevant to your course and topics of study. Flashcards are a proven way to retain information quickly.

Lecture Capture

Students have been recording lectures for years. Lecture capture allows you to do just that, in high-quality audio, from your smartphone, eliminating the need to buy expensive recording technology.

SelfControl

SelfControl is the perfect app for the procrastinator. Use it to block distracting websites for a certain time, while you study. Let’s be honest, most of us have sat looking at Facebook for an hour while we are meant to be working. This app won’t let you.

Dropbox

Dropbox is another great app for those that like to study on the go. Save all your files to a Dropbox account. They will be available on other devices. It’s especially useful if you want to use photographs from your smartphone in your work, or if you move between your student home and your parents’ home.

If you want to take using technology and the internet to aid your studies even further, why not take an online course. All of these apps would still be a great help to you.
