Lifehacker Pack for Android: Student Edition  March 26, 2016 – 04:32 pm

Lifehacker Pack for Android: Student EditionWe recently put together our list of the best Android apps, but college students need a different type of mobile toolkit. To that end, we’ve gathered up the best Android apps to track your schedule, assignments, and more.

Productivity

You have a ton of options for different to-do apps, but we like a few that stand above the rest. Any.DO has a ton of extra features so you can make it work how you want, Google Keep keeps things simple, while Wunderlist is packed with great features and works across a ton of different devices.

Evernote is an excellent resource for students to capture everything they have going on in class. If you need a little inspiration for how to use Evernote, Shep McAllister’s guest post on the Evernote blog outlines a lot of ways you can use Evernote in school, including taking snapshots of notes, blackboards, organizing research, and more.

We mention Dropbox in our annual Lifehacker Packs, but it’s worth noting again for students. Not only is Dropbox a handy place to store all your files, it can also be a lifesaver when you realize you forgot to bring in an assignment. Simply pop into Dropbox, and email the link directly to your professor from any computer.

Let’s face it, sometimes you’re not going to pay attention in class. In fact, you’ll probably fall asleep at least once. For those days an audio recorder can be a lifesaver. On Android we like Tape a Talk Voice Recorder. It supports FTP, Dropbox and attachments.

Studious is a to-do manager and calendar built specifically for a student. It’s packed with all the features you’d expect from a to-do manager, but it also comes with a notes feature, and more importantly, ringer automation so the app automatically turns your phone to silent when you’re in class. If you’re looking for a more traditional to-do manager, we recommend Wunderlist.

Unless you want to give yourself a workout every time you walk to class, you’ll want to get as many of your books digitally as you can. Between the Kindle app and the Play Books app, you should be able to get everything you need easily.

Internet and Communication

Chrome is a fantastic browser for students because it syncs all your settings, history, and bookmarks across platforms. That means if you forget your computer one day and need to do some research on your phone, you’ll be able to start right where you left off. Dolphin’s also a great browser that has a ton of extra features that make reading on your device a little nicer.

Hangouts does pretty much everything you need from an IM and video client. You can chat with friends, do video chat with your family, and even organize bigger group chats with fellow students.

The Extended Pack

Unless you’re actually getting your major in mathematics, you probably don’t need an expensive graphing calculator. To fill in for Math 101, this free Android app should do everything you need.

Keeping track of your limited finances in college is tough, but Mint makes the whole process easier. It also helps you create and stick with a budget. We know it’s probably not the most exciting thing on this list, but it’s better to know how little is in your account whenever possible.

Love them or hate them, flashcards are a great way to memorize information. GFlash+ is an app that not only allows you to make your own, but you can also search through thousands that have already been created for classes, or collaboratively make a set of flashcards with your fellow students with Google Docs. It’s incredibly simple, but if you’re lucky enough to be in a class that already has cards made, gFlash+ will make your life a lot easier.

Pushbullet started as a way to send links between your devices, but now it’s a do-everything bridge between your devices. It even added a complete SMS client, so you can read and reply to text messages from your computer, with your professors being none the wiser that you’re texting during class.

Let’s face it: you’re in college, you’re short on cash, and you’re hungry. Yelp is one of the best ways to quickly search your surroundings and find a cheap place to eat or a quiet place to grab a drink.

Going out for cheap drinks and cheap food during happy hour is a college tradition. If you need some help finding new places to go, Happy Hour Finder will do the trick well enough. It’s not exactly the most up-to-date listings, but it is nationwide and seems to do a pretty good job of at least nailing the right times. If you go to college in a large enough city, it’s also worth looking to see if you can find an app dedicated to your city.
