Last week, we covered recommended back to school applications for Blackberry users. As mentioned previously, the Blackberry isn’t exactly the device you would expect students to use. However, with the advent of more consumer-friendly features, Blackberry is beginning to break into this demographic. Regardless, Apple is still a popular choice for college students in terms of computing.
But now, due to more consumer-friendly pricing, Apple is becoming a choice for conumers looking for a cell phone and tablet. That being said, here are three recommended iOS applications that can be used across all iOS platforms (iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch).
This is the to-do manager that we all know and love. Remember the Milk is one of the premiere task managers for mobile users. The application allows you to have your tasks categorized, organized based on importance, and when they are due. Remember the Milk also allows you to get notified through email and even through notifications through email and text message. Plus, there is a workaround available out there that lets you incorporate Remember the Milk officially with Siri.
The key features of Remember the Milk is free, however you can purchase the Pro version for $25/year. What are the benefits of going pro? You have the ability to have your tasks immediately available on the Remember the Milk website and your other connected devices, plus you also get push notifications – a must for any task app.

Flashcards are essential for any college or high school student who needs to study for the next test or exam. However, flashcards are becoming a bit archaic in their paper form. For those who don’t make use of the various study tools out there, who enjoy the use of flashcards, the paper form of flashcards are seen as wasteful and at the very least, expensive. Flashcards for iOS hopes to help alleviate the amount of flashcards being used by providing users with a digital alternative.
Flashcards for iOS allows you to create digital flashcards with text, images, and even audio. You can search and easily find them with FlashCards’ search and categorization tools. All of this for less than the cost of one paper set of flashcards at your local office supply store. FlashCards for iOS is available for $1.99.
Download FlashCards on the App Store, and help alleviate the need to dig into the forest and your wallet to study.
