Best Phone Apps for Successful College Students
It seems mobile phone apps have more than entertainment value. They can help you with your studies too. They can help you find and order textbooks as you go by scanning the bar code with the camera or searching by title or number. It is easy to find and rent textbooks this way. Phone apps can also help students track homework by means of an interface. Assignments are dated and labeled in colors. For example, red is for most urgent, blue – least urgent. What else is there for college students?

Using internet to prepare for class
If you get the Wi-Fi Finder you will never have a problem finding wi-fi access points in the area, no matter where you are. The app locates them by means of the GPS-monitored location.

Before exam - making flash cards

EZ Read is another app that helps you prepare for exams, especially if you major in literature and linguistics. Spark Notes were a lifesaver back in the day and now, this app brings every single Spark Note in the world to your mobile. It gives you access to book summaries, analysis and quizzes. This is just like reading the book, except quicker.
Beating test anxiety
