Back To School Apps? Some of Them Overlap With Work Ones Too

Pretty soon, you'll see some very good back to school apps posts all over the Internet.  And you know what?  If you're a student and you are lucky enough to have an iOS device, like an iPod touch or iPad that you'll be taking to school with you this fall, you could be arming yourself with some pretty neat apps.

Here are some from iSmashPhone.

And if you're not a student, you might think this doesn't apply to you.  But it does.  Evernote is one of the apps and sevices recommended.  And it's definitely not build with students in mind but definite has its uses across multiple disciples:  school, business, or just our plain old lives.

Dropbox is the other app that is recommended, which, too, has uses beyond school or work.

Growing up, I sometimes thought of school as work.  You don't get paid but you go anyway.  Obviously, as a kid, you don't appreciate some of the good times (and awkward ones) that go on until you're out of school and joined the workforce.

So, I recommend any journal app that you can use to record your thoughts as you go through your school years and get ready for life outside of textbooks, finals, and Friday night football.  Personally, I like Momento.

And like Dropbox and Evernote, Momento works even if you're not going back to school this fall.

Any app you would recommend that has uses for both school and work?
