Must Have Apps: Part 1, Education and Productivity

This is the first part of our new Tech Tuesday series, Must Have Apps. Our first post brings us to the topics of Education and Productivity.
With these apps, you’ll be able to streamline your workflow and connect to the information you need on the go. Check them out!
Evernote- Evernote is an amazing application that syncs across multiple devices and computers to keep all of your notes and lists in one place. You can easily organize your notes into notebooks, and organize your notebooks into stacks. You can use Evernote for many different things, from organizing online recipes, having your favorite web links accessible anywhere, or even being able to quickly save your ideas and sync them to everything. Evernote service and mobile apps are both free. This app is supported on Windows, Mac OSX, IPhone, IPod Touch, Android phones, Blackberry phones, and Windows Mobile phones.
DropBox- DropBox is an application that you can install on multiple computers and devices to share files. This is great for taking notes during class or snapping a quick picture, and then automatically having access to these files on your mobile device—or vice versa. The service is free for up to 2GB of files, and the app is free too! DropBox is supported for the IPhone, IPad, Android phones, and Blackberry phones. Get it here for your computer too.
Saba Centra- Do you attend eNOVA sessions frequently? Saba Centra, (aka eNOVA), has an app for IPhones and IPads that let you attend any of your scheduled sessions from your mobile device. You can even view these sessions multiple times afterwards, as they are stored in your recorded sessions. This app is also free.
Fring- Fring lets you make free group video calls, voice calls, and live chat over your mobile device. You can even have group video calls with up to 3 other people using Fring! This app is perfect for study sessions with online classmates. The service is supported by IPhones, IPads, Android phones, and some Nokia phones.
