4 iPhone Apps For Organizing Your College Life

4 iPhone Apps For Organizing Your College Life
  • Opening Intro -

    Making the step up to college life can be tough.

    You have a lot more on your plate than you are used to, and may be living away from home for the first time.

-------------------------------------

That means getting yourself to classes in an unfamiliar place, learning how to take care of yourself, and dealing with assignments as well as a whole new social scene. These 4 iPhone apps should make it easier to organize your college life – and you’ll wonder how you got anything done before you had them.

1. inClass

If you are struggling to take notes while the professor rushes through your lectures, this app could really help. You can record audio or video with the tools it gives you, as well as making text notes and taking images of slides or written materials. You can also share material with friends.

Make sure to unlock your iCloud account first if you are using a refurbished phone, and you can then share it through the cloud or through Facebook. It’s a great way to become the popular kid in class by helping everyone else keep up.

2. Wunderlist

If you struggle to stay on task with your new levels of work, and your extended study time, then Wunderlist will make it easier to keep going. List every task you need to complete, then break it down into every step you need to do in order to complete it. Calculate how long each step will take you, and then allow the app to tell you what you should be doing next. It’s also useful in group assignments as you can share the task lists with other users.

3. DropBox

It may be a simpler app than you were expecting, but DropBox – like the iCloud – is hugely useful. The big difference is that you can share files from here with everyone, not just other iPhone users. You can upload a lot of files here to keep them with you instead of carrying books around everywhere you go. This makes working on projects or studying easier, even if you are traveling for a few hours back home for the weekend.

When you first sign up there are a number of tasks which you can complete in order to get bonus space for a limited time, so take advantage of these – you will be able to store a lot more without upgrading to premium, and might just find you no longer need the space anyway when it runs out.

4. Snap2PDF

This is a great app for those who were wondering about the best way to get those bulky textbooks or handouts into cloud storage. The app works simply, which is great news for you as the user. You just point it at the document that you want to store, and take a picture. The app then converts it into a PDF for you, with multiple pages combined into one PDF if you prefer.

This means that you can take a picture of the pages of your textbook, create a PDF from it, and upload it to the cloud for browsing whenever you want. You might even want to suggest this one to your professor as a way of making resources more accessible for all.

Staying organized in college is all about staying on top of what needs to be done and when, and using your time wisely. The more study you can do on the bus, the more time you will have for partying in the evening. That’s how to graduate college with good grades as well as a social life!
