18 Essential Apps For Getting Back To College

Social Apps

1. R We Still On Time?

This app does an amazing job when you are meeting a friend or a group of friends.

2. Hopspot

Hopspot is a great social app, available both for iOS and Android devices, that allows you to connect with your friends. You may think “So what, I can do that with Facebook.” But, this app is different. It only allows you to post your plans and eliminates all the “distractions” you can find on other social media. If  you want to go and have a pizza with someone, simply share your plans. Those friends who want to join you will contact you once they see your update. You won’t have to text everyone you can think of, asking them to come and join you. In addition, the greatest thing about Hopspot is that it will clear your updates every morning, leaving you with a clean slate.

Scan the barcode of the book you used (or enter the info manually), and EasyBib will do the rest for you. It will sort out a bibliography in your choice of MLA, APA, or Chicago-Styled format.

9. WordFail

Just because you are an English native speaker, or you study English, it doesn’t make you an English master. WordFail will help you learn how to use the most commonly misused words in English. This can help you out when sending out important emails, going to meetings, or creating any important document.

10. Stop. Breathe & Think

If you want to be more productive, you need to be focused and remove stressors from your life. You will not accomplish much if you’re stressed over a deadline or procrastinating. Stop.
