7 iPhone Apps That Help Students Bounce Back from School Break (page 2)
Let's be frank, the holiday break was more than enjoyable without all that homework, essay writing, and note taking - but school has returned and it's time to get back to work. I have compiled a list of 7 iPhone and iPod Touch apps that will help any student get back into the school grove and complete the new semester successfully!
iStudiez - Since school has started you unfortunately can't wake up and sit around in your PJ's while munching on left over holiday food. So what is a student to do, it would be best to use iStudiez as your student planner solution. iStudiez is an awesome inexpensive app that helps you track of your entire student life. With iStudiez you can have access to all of your class contacts including the teacher's email for those times you need to email a well thought absence excuse, you can track when your assignments are due, and keep track of your class times and school holiday schedule.
MyGPA Calculator - You know at the end of every semester, right before you take your finals you get your handy calculator out and desperately calculate what you need to get on your finals to achieve a certain grade which will ultimately affect your GPA. Well, with My GPA Calculator you can calculate your GPA in a breeze and keep it on you at all times. MyGPA Calculator allows you to manage multiple courses over multiple semesters, view your GPA individually and overall, and change your letter grades and number of credit hours per class.
iFormulas - Imagine this: you've finally pried yourself from Facebook, got your textbooks and paper ready. You've started to do your math homework and you draw a blank on the exact formula you need to use for the problem that doesn't have the answer in the back, just great! Now your first instinct may be to refer to the back or front of your textbook for the formula, but iFormulas for the iPhone makes this totally unnecessary. Simply turn on your iPhone or iPod Touch, open this app and any formula from the volume formula in Geometry to the Algebra equation of a circle.
Cram - What would your return to school be like without studying - a failure that's what. With Cram on your iPhone or iPod Touch squeezing in those important study sessions is a breeze. Cram allows you to create, share, and download practice tests and flashcard sets directly on your iPhone. Cram can help you study with digital flashcards and with multiple- choice tests perfect for preparing for those pop quizzes, tests, midterms and finals, yes your finals! Cram allows you to add images, has a huge database of premade tests, and for those that don't have a handle on fast landscape mode typing can create the tests on their computer with Cram for Mac.
Symbolic Calculator - When returning from school break your mental math skills may be a little rusty, luckily there is Symbolic Calculator. Symbolic Calculator is a little beyond the preinstalled calculator app. Although it does handle the basic functions of the calculator app, solving algebraic equations, derivatives, and plotting is no match for this calculator app.
The Chemical Touch - Unless you totally have to memorize the ENTIRE periodic table of elements, I would totally get this app. The Chemical Touch is simply a digital periodic table in your pocket whenever you need. Although this app is simple it still has the information an 'ole periodic table pro needs (if there is such thing) including the masses, densities, and melting and boiling point of each element. If that info is not enough for you, you could always utilize the built-in Wikipedia access to fill in the blanks.
Pi Cubed Lite - I can't stand how difficult it is finding math specific apps , but Pi Cubed is surely one of them that was well made for easily constructing mathematical expressions. Using Pi Cubed is as easy as using pencil a pencil and paper to solve your math work. The best part about Pi Cubed Lite is that it utilizes the best features of the iPhone and iPod Touch by letting you zoom and pan into your math work making it easy to enter and edit your work. Now if Pi Cubed could just take the actually math tests for you...
