So, here are our top ten student apps to help keep you organized and ready to rock your classes so you can go back to school in style!

For organization

The program is available on several smartphone and tablet devices and syncs up with most products. Evernote is free to use but can be upgraded.

For homework help

Download the Dictionary.com app to help you when writing or reading in class without access to the Internet. You’ll find all the trusted content you’ve come to expect from Dictionary.com

The Questia Library app makes mobile research easy! For Questia.com subscribers, the free download of this application will give you full mobile access to a constantly growing collection of over 77,000 books and 4 million articles. And, for non-subscribers, you’ll still gain access to 5,000 free public domain books plus one day of access to the entire Questia Library.

The Free Spanish Tutor app is for those of you taking a Spanish class. It can help your grades with vocab, quizzes, and reviews. This is a great way to prep during your down-time between classes.

The Wi-Fi Finder app is just as spectacular as it sounds! This is perfect for on-the-go students who might need Internet access for research or homework. Use it to track down hot spots in your area and even detect where to find free wi-fi.

For the student on a budget

The Expenditure app allows you to plug in all of your expenses to help you calculate your budget. Plug in all your necessities like rent, books, gas and groceries. Then, you’ll be able to tell just how much money you have left over for the fun things!

Gas Guru lets you search for the best gas prices in the immediate area and lists nearby restaurants, coffee shops, auto repair shops, ATMs and even roadside assistance information. This app can be extremely helpful for all you commuter students but also would come in handy when on a road trip.
