Phone Apps Suggested for Every College Students

Posted September 22, 2017

We’re ¼ ways of the Fall semester and students are getting busier, assignments and projects are piling up for every class, and of course, let’s not forget about tests and midterms. College might be the best four years of your life, but they’re sure are not the easiest. College life involves late-night studying, eating lots of ramen and pizza, and lack of sleep.

To help, we found these eight apps that’ll make if not any, but most of college students’ time at school easier. Here are some of the suggested apps.


Many students often have trouble finding time for themselves because a college is a social place and it’s great to connect and make new friends. Often, finding true inner peace, blocking out surrounding noises and relaxing can be difficult. Headspace teaches you the basics of mindfulness and helps you get turning rare quiet moments into true meditation. Try it and clear your minds.


This app allows you to annotate PDFs, mark up photos, record lectures, sketch illustrations, and more! With built-in iCloud support, taking notes in classes has never been easier. Your notes automatically link to recordings, so you can watch your annotations grow with the recording during the playback. The app costs $9.99 but it’s worth it!


Despite how many emergency phone booths are on campus, there’s still something discomfort walking home alone late at night. Revolar wearables can let your trusted contacts know your GPS location and if you need help at the click of a button. The app allows keeping you and your loved ones’ minds at ease.

You can add up to five contacts to receive notifications, which can range from reaching your destination safely, feeling uneasy about your surroundings, or being in a potentially dangerous situation. Let your friends and loved ones know where you are and ensure your safety.


The budget can get very sensitive to many college students. It’s important to know how much you’re spending, how much you’re supposed to be spending, and what you have in the bank. The app lets students set sensible budgets, so they are fully aware exactly how much they can spend without completely depleting their checking account. It costs $3.99 to download but it’s better than having negative bank accounts.

Sleep Cycle

Wake up patterns can be various every day depending on college schedules. Having Sleep Cycle app allows waking up a little easier because it analyzes your sleep pattern to find the best time to wake you up gradually. Simply, set it up and leave your phone next to your bed.

Most of the college students have seen Quizlet for those preparing for a big exam or doing their assignments. The app allows students to study materials into a series of flashcard with true/false and multiple-choice questions, ranging from easy to difficult.
