12. Instapaper

What it does – saves web pages so that you can access them later, even when you do not have Internet access. Saves most web pages as text only files, making them easy to read even on your phone. Best used for – bookmarking articles or pages that you need for class, or that you are just interested in. 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.

13. Evernote

What it does – allows you to make random text, audio, or visual notes about pretty much anything. You can record notes, ideas, or snapshots in a searchable database for easy access later on. Best used for – remembering all of the random facts and ideas that you will absorb both inside and outside the classroom. Favorite Feature – it converts text from any snapshot images into text that is readable and searchable on your phone.

14. Bump

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. You will meet so many people, and Bump provides an easy and fast way to get their contact information. Favorite feature – it almost goes without saying that being able to exchange phone numbers simply by touching phones is pretty cool…

15. PocketMoney

What it does – keeps track of your finances with data from any checking, savings, or credit card accounts that you input. Best used for – making sure that you do not overstep your financial boundaries in college. It is so easy to forget how much money is in your checking account, but this app makes that information readily available even when you are on the go. 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. Favorite feature – “Slot Machine” gives you a randomized restaurant choice when you shake your phone. It’s ideal for when you are feeling particularly spontaneous.

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.
