Top Apps for Students

By Brenda on January 3rd, 2012


It seems that apps are all the rage these days. It’s like there’s an app for virtually everything. While it’s easy to get wrapped up into a mean game of Angry Birds there are some excellent apps that will help you get organized and be more productive. This is essential for everyone – especially busy college students that have a lot of responsibilities and limited time. Let’s take a look at some of the most popular time management, organization, and educational apps on the market today.


This app is compatible with the iPhone and iPad. At one point Toodeldo was one of the top 50 paid apps in the entire app store. Toodledo will take you to-do list to an entirely different level. It’s like a to-do list on steroids! This productivity app lets you create and organize your to-do lists by priority, type, due-date, difficulty, and a whole plethora of other categories. Toodeldo will send you an alert when the due date on one of your items is coming up, will create repeat tasks for you, allow you to take free form notes, and help you find your important tasks quickly by putting them on a hot list. Toodledo costs just $1.99.


Evernote is quickly becoming a popular app with students. In fact, entire schools have integrated into their curriculum because of its usability. Evernote is completely free and works with virtually all smart phones, tablets, laptops, and operating systems. Evernote allows you to take notes, store and organize all of your videos, images, web pages, files and audio files in one location. It’s like a virtual binder for school. You can also share things with classmates, which makes it awesome for using when doing group projects.

Blackboard Mobile

Ever wish you could access your Blackboard course while on the go? Now you can with the Blackboard mobile app. It gives you the same functionality and access that the regular Blackboard platform gives you. That means you can get your coursework done while away from your desktop or laptop. Blackboard mobile works with smart phones and tablets.

Keeper Password Vault

It seems like everything requires a password these days. Writing them down is helpful, but also very risky. Keeper allows you to store all of your username and passwords in a secure app that only you can access. It also allows you to access the website right from the app and will even populate the username and password fields for you! Never again will you forget a username and password.
