LIFE HACK

Tools for School Success

Level up your academic life.

Want to start this semester off with an efficiency boost? Try some apps designed to help you get the most out of your time and get the grades you’ve always wanted.

Stay on Schedule

Stay on course with the practical (and pretty) iStudiez Pro. Just link its widget to your Today View to easily keep track of your class schedule. More than a schedule organizer, this app includes clear and clean management tools for assignments, homework, and holidays. This way you know when to hit the books hard, and when you can let loose and play hard. You can try the free Lite version first, which comes with all the crucial functions of the app minus the widget, sync, and backup features.

Mind the Memory Gap

As the old proverb goes, the palest ink is better than the best memory. Effective note-taking is an essential study skill. Find help in the all-in-one Evernote, the utilitarian Bear, or handwritten elegance of Paper. Each makes a great study partner.
