Being able to access these even without wireless coverage gives you more freedom to read and study wherever you like. Favorite Feature – if you are looking for something new to read, you can check out what other friends are reading or choose from the Editor’s Pick list.

What it does – allows you to exchange phone numbers and other contact information when you “bump” your phone with your friend’s. Best used for – a frenzy of introductions that you will encounter during your first weeks of college.

15. PocketMoney

What it does – keeps track of your finances with data from any checking, savings, or credit card accounts that you input.

Favorite Feature – charts and other analytics help you see where you are overspending and how to cut back

16. Wi-Fi Finder

What it does – shows you the various wi-fi hotspots in your geographic area and how to get there. Best used for – finding places to study in your local community. The app is also helpful if you are studying abroad, where it can sometimes be difficult to stumble simply upon a wi-fi hotspot. Favorite feature – clear directions to the nearest wi-fi location

17. Urbanspoon

What it does – helps you find nearby restaurants and view ratings and reviews for each establishment. Best used for – finding a restaurant in your new college town. College is all about exploring new things, so challenge yourself to discover the unique local restaurants that your area has to offer.

University-specific applications

Most colleges offer smartphone apps featuring calendars, upcoming events, university news, and important logistical information, such as dining hall menus or bus schedules.

Once you have decided which school you might attend, you should check their website or iTunes for any available apps. You can share the above information with your friends and the rest of the people on Facebook, Twitter,Pinterest, etc. to enrich others for a better tomorrow.
