You probably use your iPhone for many things that don’t actually involve a conversation like taking photos, getting directions, and even checking the weather. But did you know that your iPhone can help you be a better student?
Use your iPhone to study your notes. Carrying around all of your study notes in your backpack can really begin to weigh you down, but you can lighten your load by carrying them around on your iPhone instead. Whether you prefer to e-mail them to yourself or save them on an app like FileApp, you can view your notes as Word, PDF, or PowerPoint documents. This way you can review your notes whether you are walking across campus to your next class or riding the bus to school.
Use your iPhone to listen to your lectures. You probably spend a lot of time driving around running errands, so next time you're in your car instead of listening to pop radio put some useful information in your head. By using apps like SpeakEasy Voice Recorder you can record class lectures and turn them into MP3 files that you can listen to while walking to class, during a workout, or while driving to school. Listening to lectures more than once can help you to be able to better recall important information next time you are taking an exam.
Use your iPhone to download educational apps. If you have an iPhone you no longer have to buy a deck of index cards and waste precious time hand writing definitions. All you have to do is download an app like Study, that allows you to create and customize flashcards which make it easy to memorize vocabulary, theories, and historical dates. This application acts as a personal tutor by adapting to your progress and scheduling card repetitions for you. If you get the right answer the app gives the card lower priority in future repetitions, and if you get the wrong answer it prioritizes the card for future repetitions. Need help managing your busy student life? An app like iStudiez Pro helps you manage your school schedule, stay on top of assignments, and prepare for your next exam. After you have added your schedule for the semester, this app summarizes all the details of your classes and assignments by event type, location, instructor, and due dates. You can even set alarms to remind you to get to class or remind you about that homework assignment you should be working on.
