From note-taking apps to financial planning apps, students have found these to be life savers, especially when those dreaded deadlines draw ever-nearer! All of the below apps are available on both Android and Apple devices.
Available across a range of operating systems, Dropbox can be a real life saver for students on the go. It allows the user to create a special folder on their own computer which is then synchronised by Dropbox to allow it to be viewed from different computers. This quick, efficient file sharing service is a great alternative to USB’s and actually stemmed from an MIT student repeatedly forgetting his USB.
