High school and college life can be exhausting for students with its ever-expanding list of responsibilities. Once you hit a certain age, you have to learn to fight for yourself and take charge, and what better way than to have a little bit of help along the way? There are numerous amounts of mobile apps on the market today that can get you the help you need.
To get started, let’s look at a few mobile apps you can use in your day-to-day life that work wonderfully and can help you achieve your goals.
myHomework Student Planner
The alarm rings, your eyes open a little, and you suddenly realize you’ve still got a bit of homework to finish before your first class. The organization is the key to success. However, not everybody has the time to stay organized, so the myHomework Student Planner, available on a wide variety of platforms, can help you stay organized wherever you are. You get to keep track of your class schedule and homework, get reminders for upcoming tests, and sync it across all of your platforms. An app such as this can really help organize your day.
Circle of 6 U
Another key to college life is safety, which is a big issue, especially walking alone in the evening. On a college campus, walking home late at night can be scary, especially if your school has a history of predatory behavior. To ensure your safety, an app called Circle of 6 U helps you find your exact location (campus maps are built into the app), and it streamlines communication with your trusted friends. The app has great features to truly help you stay safe.
Office Lens from Microsoft
Another great app for students is Office Lens from Microsoft which can take pictures of documents, whiteboards, blackboards, magazines, receipts, and more. The app takes those pictures and converts them into editable and shareable text. It also allows you to take pictures at an angle and cleans up glares and shadows. These images can be saved as PDFs, Word, or Powerpoint files. It’s a great tool to quickly digitize items you are viewing in class.
Alongside studying and having a social life, one also needs as much sleep as they can possibly get while being a high school or college student. Lucky for you, there’s an app for it. Getting enough sleep is essential to receiving a good education. Waking up rested isn’t just about how much you sleep; it’s about where you are in your sleep cycle when you wake up.
The Sleep Cycle app uses your phone’s microphone and/or accelerometer to analyze your sleeping patterns. It processes this information to wake you up at the best possible time when you’re in your lightest sleep state, and this, in turn, helps you achieve a good night’s sleep.
Schools should take advantage of all the technology out there and recommend it to students. You want to provide them the best possible education and technology can help. Although there is the technology that distracts them, there is also plenty that helps them focus and stay on task. The best way to provide a great education to your students is by providing a customized mobile app for your school. It should be beautiful to look at and easy to use. Keep that in mind next time you’re looking at educational technology to use in your school.
Apps such as the ones listed above do a great job helping students in their daily life. However, if you are a student or educational institution and want to create a specific app which can cater to your needs, our professional mobile app developers at SDI are the right fit for you.
