Having trouble keeping track of your homework by memory or on an agenda? Have no fear! If you’re technology friendly or to have your cell phone on you at all times, then you’re reading the right blog post. We have three apps that will keep you on target for your classes and make your agenda useless.
1. Scanner Pro
Swamped in documents from a class? Scanner Pro can scan your documents that aren’t available from your professor online. This iOS app uses your iPhone’s camera to scan your document into a PDF. You then have the option to save the documents to a service like Dropbox and Google Drive. There are other free apps that scan, but Scanner Pro makes the cleanest PDFs.

Do you ever finish writing a long paper and then realize that you haven’t done your citations yet? Well, RefMe is a quick way to do citations. All you do is use your camera on the app to scan the barcode of the book you want to create the citation from. Once scanned, you can pick one of the 7,000 styles available for citation. They also include the common ones like MLA, Chicago, and APA. The best part of the app is that it’s FREE and available for iOS and Android phones
Price: Free (woohoo!)
