3 apps that every college student should use

These apps will super-charge your life. They’ll make you more productive than you’ve ever been. They’ll pretty much write that 900 word essay you’ve been procrastinating on.

Here’s a list of 3 incredibly sexy apps that are available on all platforms (Mac / iPhone / Android / PC). There are a lot of great apps out there that can achieve the same thing, but these apps will work no matter what device you’re on.


 The calendar app you’re not too sure how you lived without.


This app can connect to just about any type of calendar service. I have it connected to my Google and Facebook accounts. It makes staying up-to-date dead simple. For instance, I have a “classes” tag where I add all my class discussions / lectures from SmartSite and set the events on repeat. And thanks to it being connected to Facebook, any event I click “Going” on will also appear in this calendar. It also makes sharing calendars really easy.

 Forget about the default Todo app which comes installed on your device.


After you go to Wunderlist, there’s no going back.
Why I like this more than other Todo apps:

Trust me, you’ll fall in love with this todo app, and won’t be able to live without it.

 Email can feel like a chore. This makes it less painful.


No one is a fan of email. If you’re like me, then you get a ton of emails everyday. Mailbox (by Dropbox) makes it easy. I have Mailbox connected to my person Gmail account and also to my UCD email (also treated as a Gmail account). The best part of mailbox is being able to dismiss emails that aren’t important with a single swipe. I highly suggest you give Mailbox for your phone a try.

An honorary mention: Clear. I really love this app because of its simplicity. But it’s only available on the Apple family of devices. It’s certainly worth checking out.

I hope you found this list useful.
