As a student at Otago University, I find myself using some apps more than others around campus. I thought I would share the apps that I find most handy.
The first is Student Timetable, this is a pretty basic timetable app which is exactly what students need. This App effectively organises my life from Monday to Friday, telling me where I need to be and at what time.
Any former students know that money is always a struggle, this is where the grabaseat app comes in handy. This app allows me to find a cheap flight to get home for the holidays. The best thing is, I can set alerts for my chosen destinations so I dont miss out when cheap flights come on.
Most students are always on the hunt for ways to make money. Seek is my favourite jobs app, it allows me to monitor advertised jobs as they get posted, in the areas and classifications that I specify. My CV can be saved on the app which means I can easily apply for a job straight from my phone.
When I’m busy in class or having a late night at the Library, the Sky app is often a saviour. I can set reminders so I don’t forget any of my favourite shows or I can remotely record the show onto the mysky decoder at home through my phone, so that I can watch it later.
Lastly, all students need a bit of humour, this is where 9GAGR comes in. When in a boring class or in need of a laugh on a Monday morning this is where I go. 9GAGR is full of hilarious pictures and mockeries of current events, celebs and much more. A smile is guaranteed after five minutes in this app.
So there we have it, my favourite apps as a student. What would you add?
If you love iPhones and you also happen to love beer, be prepared to reach for your wallets. Chillicase have begun to sell the Opena, a hybrid iPhone-case-slash-bottle-opener, right here in New Zealand. Stick with us for a tour of an engineering feat which combines two of the greatest passions known to man!…Read More
On April 13th 2010 history was made, the first 3rd party Web Browser for iOS was approved. Opera Mini was the first amongst many browsers to grace the iOS and since then it has been followed by a succession of unique browsers.
However, if you try and find a review on them, to see which you would like the most before buying, you will be sadly disappointed. It has been many a month since any blog reviewed and compared the cream of the offerings. With iOS5 and its revamped Safari just around the corner (and because I am not restricted to the NDA) I think it’s time we changed that!…Read More
There appears to be a never ending supply of options when it comes to notes apps for our beloved iOS devices, doesn’t there? It’s not surprising then, that there’s an equally extensive range of writing implements available for those apps.
The Wacom Bamboo Stylus hit our shores just a couple of weeks ago and, due to its remarkable pedigree, has a lot to live up to. I decided to put it through its paces and help you decide if it’s worth the $45 it’s selling for in New Zealand stores.…Read More
I recently got sent a couple of cases in the post that upon first look I just didn’t understand. The reason I didn’t understand is that they were an iPad 2 case with the addition of notepad and personally I just didn’t get why you would want a notepad when you had an iPad.
Well, keep reading to see my thoughts on the case and the interesting combination of old meets new……Read More
Now here’s a blast from the past: an app version of a good old classic ‘party’ game. High technology meets retro low-tech fun. You’ll have played this a dozen times already (perhaps at school). You know: the game where you’re asked to choose a noun or a name or a verb and your choices are inserted into a story. It’s right up there with with taking it in turns to draw sections of a picture on a piece of folded paper, only to reveal a hideous man-robot-fish-thing at the end of it all. But is it as fun as it was back then? …Read More
