8 essential mobile apps for college students

Susie Ochs | Aug. 30, 2013
Load up your mobile device with handy apps for taking notes, sharing files, recording lectures, managing your tasks, and (of course) reading books, and your road to the Dean's list will be a little less bumpy.

Juggling multiple deadlines and learning how to manage your time is one of the biggest practical skills you can learn in college—no matter what your major, think of yourself as a project manager in training, because that's essentially what you are. So you'll need a killer to-do list, and Wunderlist is one of our favorites. It looks great, works across all platforms, and strikes a balance between its rich feature set and uncluttered, easily understood interface.

You can get free apps for iOS and Android, plus a handy Chrome extension and of course the Web app, Pokki version, and native clients for Mac and Windows too. You can spring for a Pro account ($5 a month or $50 a year) to add files, assign tasks to other team members, but for most students the free account will suffice. We especially love its ability to create new tasks from email messages.
