5 Apps to Make College Easier

September 26, 2016


College is hard enough for students with a busy schedule and most of us have our heads buried in our phones rather than the books. Whether we’re sneaking in a quick text message in class or checking our social media accounts over lunch, our phones are never more than an arm’s length away. Instead of distracting yourself with your smartphone, you can use it to up your college game. Believe it or not, there are a ton of Apps that can make your life as a college student easier.




Time management is probably one of the hardest things to overcome as a college student. With classes all day followed by a grueling day at practice and then several hours of homework, we still have to find time to eat and sleep. With Any.Do you can easily prioritize your tasks.  


Any.Do is the ultimate to-do list. While utilizing smartphone technology complete with a clean interface design, this app makes organizing your daily tasks organized and easy. You can create to-do lists under multiple categories (or even create your own!) such as school, personal, and movies to watch. You can easily move tasks around, prioritize, and color code them. When you’re ready to check off that boring research paper off your list, just swipe left!

ClearLock: Block Distractions

Remember high school, when teachers were able to block us from internet browsing and our emails so we would actually do our work? Well now you can do it too! ClearLock is super helpful for students who are either writing a paper or studying for an exam. How many times are you in the middle of a paper and decide to scroll through Facebook, for just one second, before researching the next topic?

With ClearLock you will no longer be able to distract yourself when duty calls. Just select the apps that distract you the most, choose who long you wish to be distraction free, and then get to your homework! And don’t just limit yourself to homework with this app, it can be used for a variety of things!
