Welcome back to my blog ♥
Today, I am back with a post about apps you may or may not know about! I know when I was in college, these apps really helped me get through the year. Best of luck with the new school year and lets get started!
Good Reader// $4.99// If you prefer PDF textbooks over paper textbooks, then good reader is a wonderful app for you! It allows you to read and highlight important information. You can even draw from the tip of your finger.
Notability// $9.99// This app is great if you love taking notes on your tablet. You can change up the “paper” style and write directly onto the document using a stylus. I mainly used this app for physics and it worked great to do practice problems and draw out physics diagrams.
Spotify// Free// If you don’t know what spotify is, don’t worry, I didn’t discover it until late freshman year of college. Spotify is free and it allows you to listen to music on your computer, tablet, and/or phone. You can search any artist and make playlists to share with your friends. You can also upgrade to premium and listen to ad-free music, listen offline (like on your phone), and get better sound quality…according to them.
StudyBlue// Free// This app is great if you are always on the go but you gotta study. Those of you who take public transportation to campus would definitely benefit from something like this. You can create, study and share your flashcards for free. I love that you can customize your flashcards using audio and images. It also tracks your progress and you can set a reminder that it’s time to study/review your material.
Duolingo// Free// Duolingo is awesome. It is a free app where you can learn different languages on your smart device. I use mine to enhance and practice my Spanish. Now there are 23 languages you can learn, such as French, German, Danish, Vietnamese, Irish, and of course, English. You can learn a new language from the palm of your hand (and its a great time passer on the toilet 🚽 haha!)
Venmo// Free// This app isn’t a study app but it is really useful in college. You link your debit card to your venmo account and you are able to transfer money to your friends with a push of a button. Be careful tho, make sure you are aware of how much money is in your account. But this app is really useful especially when you split purchases with your friends or housemates.
DaisyDisk// $9.99// If your computer is running out of space and you have no idea why, DaisyDisk can help you with that. Although it was $10 for the app, I immediately thought it was worth it when I started using it. This is an app for OS X that analyzes your hard disk drive and helps you easily clear unwanted things. I love it especially because it breaks down what’s in the “other” portion of your hard drive. I don’t know about you but that “other” section is the reason why my laptop space is full.
♥ Clutch Prep // here
This website saved my arse in organic chemistry 1 and 2. It’s a free website you can sign up for that provides video guides that follow your college textbooks! They offer mostly science courses but also some math courses and accounting.
♥ Cheap textbooks
↠ Bigwords.com // here
My biggest tip for saving money in college is, DO NOT BUY BOOKS FROM YOUR CAMPUS BOOKSTORE!! Sorry campus bookstores but y’all overpriced. Going into college, my brother showed me this website. Copy and paste the ISBN of your textbook and this website will generate the cheapest option for you! If you want to rent the textbook, you can change the settings to find the cheapest rent option available for your book! Happy bargaining!
These two websites often have coupon codes that work on textbooks! So make sure to check google for some coupon codes before ordering! Sometimes it’s not a lot but saving a little money is better than nothing.
♥ Fun and easy way to make flyers/infographics/graphics
If you are in a club or in greek life, you may have to make flyers for events. This is where canva comes in handy. You can easily make a free account and start designing your flyer. Most of the designs are free but if you want a fancy design, you will have to pay for it.
♥ Cute desktop wallpapers
↠Design love fest // here
Dress up your tech using cute desktop wallpapers! Design love fest has some of the most aesthetically pleasing desktop wallpapers I’ve ever seen. New ones are constantly released, which allows m\e (and you) to change up our desktop background! Below are some of my favs with the artist’s name listed!
