Staff Writer

These are a few Smart Phone Applications that can help college students in various ways!

The evernote application is designed to help students  stay organized. Students are able to key in and save notes, capture photos, record voice reminders, and create to do lists.  Evernote also has a feature that reminds you of your homework deadlines, future exams, sports practices, etc.

Gas Buddy
GasBuddy allows you to find nearby gas stations and compare each of their prices. This application is available on iOS, Android, Blackberry and WP7.


College students are constantly studying for some sort of subject. The gFlash + Flashcards & Tests application allows students to make flashcards on their phone so they are able to study on the go. It goes through the flashcards one by one in random order and then quizzes the student once he or she has gone through all of the cards. It will prepare you as a student for your upcoming exam. This application is available on iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.

Rate My Professors
This RateMyProfessors application helps you choose your professors for upcoming classes. Professors are rated in different categories including easiness, clarity, helpfulness, hotness and an overall rating.  This application can be very helpful to new students and it is available on iPhone.

If you are new on the college campus and are just getting to know people, it is hard to keep track of all the new faces you will be meeting. The Bump application allows you to share contact information simply by “bumping” phones or holding them close together. It can transfer phone numbers, addresses, and link to your Facebook account so you automatically initiate a friend request. This is available on iPhone.

Wi-Fi Finder
The Wi-Fi Finder application automatically tracks where you could use Wi-Fi for free. This is a huge advantage for college students when it comes to studying, researching, or taking notes. This application is available on Android and iPhones.
