With the new school year set to begin, you'll need to come prepared to keep those grades up and give your GPA a little boost. So, why not make the most out of that little device in your pocket? It does more than just surf Facebook and send Snapchats, ya know. Stay on top of the semester with the most efficient apps for school: from note-taking and recording to finding cheap textbooks. And don't worry, many of them are available thanks to every student's favorite word: free. Get your work done, and the sooner you finish studying, the quicker you can get back to Snapchattin' (hopefully you're making some good decisions there, too).
