Useful apps for new uni students

  • OneNote It’s the multimodal note-taker of choice for web-workers and is free. Collect, store and search, including images, videos, web pages, audio and drawings. Share content with other OneNote users.


  • Bibliography Endnote is useful for harnessing sources including author, title and publication. Download articles you read into Endnote, then reference them in essays. You’ll be laughing your way to high distinctions.


  • Lectures Keep recordings of lectures linked to your lecture notes with Soundnote (for iOS only) and Notability. There’s also ShareYourBoard (for Android) for photographing a whiteboard.


  • Organised Use iStudiez Pro or Course Pro to create a schedule of subjects and classes, add details such as tutor consultation hours and set alarms for assignment due dates. The apps give you a neat visual presentation of your day as well as allowing you to go deeper into each subject to add notes.


  • Grow a tree Forest encourages you to leave your device alone so as to stay focused. A virtual tree grows from a seed in the app. If you cut in too early the tree dies. The more you ignore your feeds, the more trees you grow.
