5 Must-Have Apps for College Students

There is no question that technology plays a central role in the life of a college student. We spend hours upon hours searching the web for information, typing papers for every class, and emailing professors with last minute questions. But sometimes it seems that our phone, the one device that we are on the most, is more of a distraction than an aid to our learning.

It would only make sense to use the device that is always glued to our hands to the best of our advantage, right?

Here are 5 apps that can help make your phone into the aid that you need to succeed!
