The world of mobile technologies is vast and ever growing with the technology making our lives easier by the minute. While we use various apps for chatting, social networking, capturing selfies and using our devices like a perennial juke box; apps today are many and more versatile than an individual’s imagination.
There are applications for keeping us on top of our finances and some so exhaustive news aggregators, that you do not require any newspaper or print magazine.
As a student of management, every day we must contend with a torrent of lessons, finances, and other errands. Thankfully, there are hundreds of android apps that assure to make managing all of those notes, assignments, and to-dos a lot easier.
Here are my top 5 picks of what every smartphone using student of management must have on their phones:
1. Google Keep
Google Keep is a syncing notepad that connects to Google Drive. It also supports photo notes, voice notes, and checklists. Google Keep lets you quickly take and save those notes, photos, voice memos, and checklists to Google Drive, and then access them again on any other web-connected device you use. It’s ideal for quick note-taking on the go, anyone who appreciates simple, fast note-taking tools or to-do apps, or for saving notes on the desktop that you know you’ll need on your Android phone, like shopping lists, addresses, phone numbers, checklists and to-do lists, or conference call codes. Keep even supports Google Apps accounts, so you can use it with your own domain or a business account.
2. Google drive
This Google app comes with loads of features to help you take notes in class, manage projects among different group members, and store whatever information or files you need, all on a full cloud drive accessible from your laptop, tablet, or smartphone.
For business students looking to access notes, PowerPoint presentations, pictures, pdfs and other information on the go, this app is perfect.
3. Wolfram Alpha
As the apps promoters say – “Whatever question you may have, Wolfram Alpha likely has an answer”. The powerful, intuitive app is great for research if you happen to be writing a paper or studying for a test, and can be used to quickly access any kind of information or perform even the most complex of calculations as well.
