8 Best Free Apps for College

Heath Vester Experience, Student Life

If you’re not prepared, college can be difficult. There are so many things competing for your attention. As a graphic design student at the University of Mobile, I remember trying to manage working part-time, having a social life, and making sure all my school work was completed on time. It can all be a little overwhelming. Luckily for you, we live in an age full of resources and tech tools to keep you on track and your mind at ease. Here are eight of the best free mobile apps to get you through the week!

Evernote — This app is great for keeping track of everything you want to remember. Capture, organize and share notes from anywhere at any time!

Dropbox — Here is the perfect companion for anyone who loves organization or for the somewhat forgetful student. Dropbox allows you to keep your documents, photos and more all in one place. It also is a cloud base so you never have to worry about leaving your USB at home.

Quiz-let — Visual learner, this app is perfect for you! It allows you to create digital flashcards and games to make studying fun and convenient. It can also be shared among a study group.

Duoling — For all those taking a foreign language this semester, this app will make your life so much easier. This game-based app makes learning a new language fun and easy. With 25-plus languages to explore, Duolingo has something for everyone!

Spotify – This one is a no brainer! Whether you need to chill out after a long week or your roommate is a little too loud, Spotify will meet your music needs.

Bookshelf — This app is perfect for getting digital textbooks at an affordable rate. It keeps your like organized and your backpack a little lighter.

Bible by YouVersion — This app is perfect for daily devotions! It also allows you to partner with friends and family so you can hold each other accountable.

Dashlane — If you’re like me, you probably have a lot of online accounts. Managing all that can be a nightmare. Dashlane let you store your login info so you never forget a password. It’s also secure and user-friendly.
