           Being a student and managing your time is always difficult. When trying to do mounds of homework, we always wish that we could have a robot to help us get all our work done. Luckily, technology has evolved immensely! We are able to use our phones, tablets and laptops to help us get more work done. It’s always hard trying to find the right apps that will be the most beneficial and reliable for students. Here is a list of helpful apps for students to use;

  1. Evernote (free at the app store)

With Evernote you can take notes, make to-do lists, set reminders, attach files, create agendas and access everything through any device. The camera feature is especially helpful. It lets you take a photo of anything and choose to save it as a photo, document, Post-it note or business card.

  1. EasyBib (free at the app store)

Easybib helps you format your list of references in over 7,000 citation styles, including the most common APA and MLA formats.

You can even take a picture of a book’s barcode and generate a citation for it!
