Our modern world has, for some time now, been defined by all the tools that we can use to boost our productivity to the next level. These tools are nothing without us implementing them. We have tested which apps that can best boost the productivity and help out a student in college, and make things a bit easier. Here are the top 10 Windows phone apps to help you in college — because without the modern day tools, having good grades, sleep and a social life is difficult to achieve.
E-mailing yourself files in order to access them on other computers is pretty outdated. If you are still doing that, STOP IT, NOW! Dropbox is the perfect free app for a personal cloud storage service.
On Dropbox, you can store your photos, videos and documents and access them from any device. Another great thing about Dropbox is that it can use it to share big files and it helps out when working with a team.
Duolingo is the best app for learning a new language. It makes the monotony of studying a language fun and it is completely free and great quality. Duolingo is like Rosetta Stone, but just 100 times more awesome!
You can check out our review of Duolingo here:

Evernote is one of the best app for students. With this app, you can take notes, set reminders, to-do lists, attach documents, and access everything through any of your devices.
My fitness Pal
College is usually the time where we lose a lot of healthy habits and everything, including ice cream at 7am before your early class, becomes an acceptable meal. The Freshman 15 becomes a reality and we start to lead a pretty unhealthy life. My Fitness Pal is perfect for college students who want to set goals, track what they are eating, and log in their exercises.
The app tells you the number of calories you are consuming, how much you should be eating and what you need to do to meet your fitness and nutrition goals. The app is easy to use and awesome for college students.
If you do not already know, Mint is an app that helps you stay within your budget, making it one of the most important apps for most of college students, and for making smart adult decisions and learning budgeting. The app tracks your spending and divides it into various categories, giving you a visual of what how much you’re spending and what you’re spending it on. This way you don’t have to bother with boring budgeting problems. The app brings everything you need to know in an easy-to-use-and-understand way. Mint also alerts you when you are going over the budget or when your account is low.
Another great thing about Mint is that it gives you advice about how to meet your savings goals. It shows how your financial decisions that you make today will impact your savings in the future. Mint also offers many other awesome features that you can take advantage of and it can save you a lot of money.
This app is amazing. It has more than 4200 educational courses and you can learn about anything you so desire. The Khan Academy app uses YouTube to upload videos of all styles of courses that you can access anywhere.
My Study Life
My Study Life lets you keep track of all your workload. You can manage your classes using the daily and weekly timetables, keep track of exams and tasks in the app cloud storage and get notifications that will keep you up-to-date with everything you need to get done (don’t forget to pencil in nap time!). The app has a nice design and is easy to use and read.
Microsoft Office Mobile
Everybody knows Microsoft Office. The app lets you share, access and edit your office documents like word, excel and power point right from your phone. This app can be best used for things like writing your homework assignment that’s due in an hour while you are on the bus — although we don’t recommend using it for *that.*
