8 Must-Have Education Apps for iPhone

Education Applications for iPhone

I remember when my cell phone only made calls. The new iPhone will still dial phone numbers, but it also runs 148 add-on applications with more than 35,000 total to choose from. With the iPhone students can now learn Spanish, practice their typing skills, and view priceless works of art. About a quarter of the applications, commonly known as “apps,” are free (others usually cost less than $10 each), so Apple users are taking full advantage, with approximately 10 million downloads so far.

Here I have compiled a few of my favorite apps, many of which are free, for the busy and wallet conscious student.


myhomework-iphone-appmyHomework — keep track of homework, classes, projects and tests. Designed to resemble a notebook, complete with sticky notes. myHomework will notify you of upcoming assignments, easily identifying major priorities that are due soon.


evernote-iphone-appEvernote — allows you to create text, audio notes and tag photos, making it easy to quickly check your class notes on the go or to snap a picture of a handout and send it straight to Evernote. This one’s a must-have.

brain-tuner-iphone-appBrain Tuner — presents you with 20 to 100 math problems and asks you whether the solutions provided are right or wrong. It times you and presents a score based on accuracy.


art-lite-iphone-appArt Lite – The free version of the Art app, Art Lite features the works of master artists including daVinci and Rembrandt, with bios, quick facts, and a virtual gallery of more than 100 works of art.


iphone-facebook-appFacebook – it may not do much to boost your studying, but Facebook for the iPhone is a must-have to keep your social life rolling while you’re at school. The Facebook application is arguably one of the best-made apps available through the App Store, providing you with quick access to all of your social media needs.
