20 Jun Best iPhone Apps For University Students
Apps That All University Students Should have in their Smartphones
University students are a busy bunch of people – they need to hand in an assignment the next day, they need to be punctual for their summer job, they want to keep up with the latest news on campus, and they want to find some entertainment when the lecturer becomes too boring.
20 years ago, this meant that you need to carry a large timetable plus the only entertainment you’d have is a game of tic-tac-toe. But with the coming of mobile apps, all the stuff you need to survive the school day is right in your pocket.
So today, we will be introducing some great Apps out there. There are 3 categories of them.
1) Getting organised
3) and finally, Social networking.
So let’s get started!
‘Get organised’ apps (or productivity apps) are a must-have on any phone or tablet. If you want to have a great organiser, a journal and an ideas sketchbook all in one app, then Awesome Note will be a great choice.
As its name suggest, its interface and features are really great. You can slot your events, note or even pictures into different folders like ‘My Ideas’, ‘Shopping’ and even ‘Travel Journal’. There is even a handy sketchbook to sketch out your ideas or just doodle when you are bored. It also comes with a handy calendar which allows you to see your events in the month. In all, this is simply an incredible app to keep your university life organised.
Next up, we have Apps for keeping you entertained
For those students who love to have a casual read to keep you entertained while on the go, Pulse will be the greatest news feed App for you. I’m sure most of you guys have heard of it, other-wise it wouldn’t be rated 5/5 on the App Store. In this app, you can choose what type of news interests you and then you will be able to read articles from various publishers. I use Pulse when I’m bored on the bus or just craving for a good read.
Let’s say you missed your favourite movie due to your month-long University exams. Fret not, there’s Feng Xing Dian Ying (Yes, I know this is a Chinese App but it still works like magic- I’ve used it). This could be the best video streaming App on the App Store. It streams TV drama and movies from Hollywood and even korean series. But of course to prevent a slow loading time, a fast internet connection is favoured.
Now, you can watch your favourite shows on the go, so don’t let that hateful exam rob you of your entertainment!
Lastly, Social networking Apps.
This one is a no-brainer. We all know what Social networking Apps that are great in the App Store. Facebook and Twitter are always favourites. With Facebook hitting its 1 billionth user in October 2012, it’s no wonder it is the most widely used social app. Now, the latest campus news it at the tips of your finger tips!
So, lets wrap thing up here. With Awesome Note as your PA, Pulse and Feng Xing Dian Ying as your source of entertainment and Facebook and Twitter as your window to the world, I can’t see why your days as a University student can’t be the best time of your life.
