Looking for mobile apps that can make your busy life a little easier? Mobile apps can help students like you quickly access online resources while you are on the go. Here are four of our favorite apps for online students.
1. Get Pocket
Get Pocket is a mobile app that allows you to save websites, blog posts, videos and just about anything else you can think of to your device so that you can access it later. What makes this app so special is that it will save the information to your device, which allows you to access everything whether you are connected to the Internet or not. This is a great way to save research materials or supplemental reading assignments while you are out and about.
Dropbox lets you easily save and store all your files from your computer--videos, photos, documents, you name it! You can then quickly share these files or access them from your mobile device no matter where you are. Plus, when you sign up, you get 2GB of free space.
3. Dragon Dictation
Dragon Dictation allows you to create text messages, blog posts, social media posts, notes and more through your own speech. It records whatever you say and converts it into text. It is a great app to use to brainstorm and save your ideas for assignments, no matter where you are.
4. Wolfram Alpha
Wolfram Alpha is basically Google on steroids. It is a search engine that allows you to search for almost anything and will provide you with precise and comprehensive information. For example, if you ask “What is the unemployment rate in Los Angeles?,” it will give you a correct number and links to other related sources. It allows you to use natural language to find information easily and quickly.
