There will not possibly be a college student who is not using an app or living a digital life. But with millions of apps available and being added to Google Play Store and iTunes App Store, back to school students may end with losing mobile data and time in downloading and trying different apps. Hence, it is utterly challenging for them to zero in on the right apps that are actually essential for them.
Are you still stuck to staple apps such as Evernote, Dropbox or Viber? It is time for you to download apps specifically designed for college students. Here we have top five apps, in no specific order of usefulness or importance, to help back to schoolÂ students stay productive and fast in classroom, save money on books and references, finding foods and manage college and campus life like a pro.
One of the primitive concerns of back to schoolÂ students is to buy textbooks and reference books on good bargain. Thatâ€™s why we have recommended this app for college students; this is Chegg. Chegg is a free app on iTunes App Store intended to curtail expenses on buying textbook by facilitating students to get those books on rental deals.

Another major difficulty that back to schoolÂ students mostly face in college and dorm is food delivery. What is even worse is that common food delivery apps such as GrubHub and Eat24 do not include food delivery facility in a non-metropolitan area. Thatâ€™s why we recommend Crunchbutton which is a savior in such situations. This is a free web app which provides services for college students and the app spans its services to 20 schools such as Georgetown, Brown, and UNC Chapel Hill around east coast. Students will find ample of local options on this web app with just a few clicks. Finding restaurants for students has never been so easy before Crunchbutton. Try this app here.
