HOW I USE
Dropbox is a home for all your photos, docs,
videos, and files. Anything you add to Dropbox
will automatically show up on all your computers,
phones and even the Dropbox website — so you
can access your stuff from anywhere.
Dropbox also makes it super easy to share with
others, whether you're a student or professional,
parent or grandparent. Even if you accidentally
spill a latte on your laptop, have no fear! Relax
knowing that your stuff is safe in Dropbox and will
never be lost.
"One place for all your stuff, wherever you are."

PDFs in your pocket. Read and annotate them on the go, search

Scanner Pro is perhaps the best app for quickly scanning
and saving a digital version of a paper document.
I use Scanner Pro to quickly scan and save digital versions
of paper documents. Scanner Pro transforms your iPhone
and iPad into portable scanners. It allows you to scan
receipts, whiteboards, paper notes, or any multipage
document. Scanned documents can be emailed and printed,
uploaded to Dropbox, Google Drive and Evernote, or
simply saved on the iPhone/iPad.
Create accurate MLA, APA, and Chicago style citations
in seconds by scanning a book bar code or by typing the
name of a book. Build and manage your works cited.
Once done, email your citations and then export your
citations to EasyBib.com's popular bibliography

access to over 1,000,000* books in the Kindle Store
plus hundreds* of newspapers and magazines.
Most of the papers I use for research purposed I’ve
found using Google Scholar. I find the university
library system to be too confusing. 90% of the papers
I want are free to download from Google Scholar,
those that aren’t I pull from the library.
Don’t worry about bringing your laptop to school
when it’s your turn to lead discussion—Keynote’s
got you covered. Sort of like a mobile
PowerPoint, the app lets you design and display
your presentation from any mobile device.
One of the most daunting tasks of writing a term paper is, of
course, building the outline. But this app helps you to organize
your thoughts or tasks into an easily editable outline format,
whether inspiration hits you at your desk or on the subway.
Outliner allows you to organize your thoughts, tasks, and
projects. Easily create a todo list for today, or track an entire
project anywhere you are. Share your outlines, edit them
online, and collaborate with other Outliner users.
If further research or immersion in a subject is needed, one of
the most reliable sources you can find is materials from an
accredited college course. iTunes U allows you to search a
library of thousands of classes in a variety of subjects and
participate if you feel so inclined. It also allows you to take and
