Working with Back to School Apps

Loading Twitterberry

Starting back to school, organizing our study habits and getting the work done collectively is often quite challenging.  The tools we use to help us get the work done can really make a difference.  That’s why I am eager to tell you about these great APPS I read about in the New York Times. When I looked them up and read the customer reviews what I found is “5 STARS. Check out the list below and then do yourself a favor and click the link for demonstrations and details about these APPS.

GFLASH –  Free for iOS and Android is a Flashcard study tool. There is also a pro version without ads, which cost $4.00. Create your own flashcards with the facts that are most important to you. Then add photos, video and audio files. They can also be shared via email.

STUDYBLUE –  Is similar to GFLASH. With this app you have to create a free account on iOS or Android. If you want the pro version it will cost $18 a month, which is fairly expensive, however you can also see flashcards created and shared by teachers and students.

NOTABILITY–  $6.00 for iPhones and iPads is for users who want to sketch and take handwritten notes on their screens. You can add textboxes, work with PDFs, make audio recordings of lectures and use them later.  The option to use iCloud and Dropbox are also available.

MYHOMEWORK STUDENT PLANNER–  Free on iOS and Android.  We can all use a tool that helps us get our schedules organized and this APP is listed as having a format  that is easy to read and use.
