As a student I find these applications get a ton of use and are very helpful throughout the semester.
Perfect home replacement application for sneaking a peak during class, shows facebook, twitter, texts, email and a ton of other stuff at a glance
Keep track of your grades and assignments throughout the year
Great for kaaping track of all your files and sharing them with peers on the go. It was a lifesaver for group projects.
Evernote – stay organized.
I use this ti scan and organizes papers, bills and other files so I can easily search for them later on, eliminating a pile of spare papers on my desk
Mint: Personal Finance & Money
No better application to track your spending to get an idea of when to call home to ask for more money
Great for news but shines with its custom playlist feature, ideal for getting news on the way to class
The best note taking app around, great for anyone who is constantly forgetting things
