In college, being organized is key. Make sure you don't miss a deadline with these helpful smartphone apps!
Trying to remember birthdays, your class schedule, weekend plans, and when spin class at the UREC is can be tricky. A great calendar app can help organize your schedule, and Google Calendar is perfect for the job. It’s easy to navigate, easy to read, and adding events is quick, simple, and intuitive. One of its best features is the ability to move seamlessly between detailed and broad overviews of your schedule.
Wunderlist is an app devoted to helping you create to-do lists. It’s extremely easy to add a task to any of the lists you’ve created, whether it’s homework for your Psychology class, grocery lists, or a shared list for group projects! You can quickly add attachments, create notes, and organize your lists with a tap of a finger.
Once you link your Moodle account to the app, you’ll be able to check assignments, look over the syllabus, and take quizzes on your phone! The Moodle Mobile app
has an easily navigable interface and allows you to access all of the materials your professor has uploaded, without having to log in to a computer!
Microsoft Office Lens
Microsoft Office Lens enables you to take a photo of a document from any angle, and the app will automatically frame and crop it, giving you an easy way to store important papers, receipts, notes, or business cards! One of the coolest functions is being able to take a photo of a whiteboard (dry-erase board) and have it look like a printed document.
Email, if it isn’t already, is going to become a big part of your life as a college student. It’ll be the primary communication method between you and your professors, employers, administration, and fellow classmates. It’s important you keep all your emails organized, and Spark can help by sorting your unread emails into a separate folder and allowing you to set reminders to respond so you never forget to reply!
