Top 4 Mobile Apps for Online Students

Online Mobile Apps

Mobile apps can make learning easier for busy online students like you, helping you to quickly access online resources while you are on the go. Here are four of our favorite mobile apps for online students.

1. Get Pocket

Get Pocket is a mobile app that allows you to save websites, blog posts, videos and just about anything else you can think of to your device so that you can access it later. What makes this app so special is that it will save the information to your device, which allows you to access everything whether you are connected to the Internet or not. This is a great way to save research materials or supplemental reading assignments for while you are out and about.

2. Wi-Fi Finder

Wi-Fi Finder is by far one of the most useful apps to have if you are trying to work on your assignments while you are away from your home computer. This app will show you a complete listing of all the wireless networks around you, and it does a much better job of finding networks than the wi-fi detector already in your mobile device.

3. Dragon Dictation

Dragon Dictation allows you to create text messages, blog posts, social media posts, notes and more through your own speech. It records whatever you say and converts it into text. It is a great app to use to brainstorm and save your ideas for assignments, no matter where you are.

4. Wolfram Alpha

Wolfram Alpha is basically Google on steroids. It is a search engine that allows you to search for almost anything and will provide you with precise and comprehensive information. For example, if you ask “What is the unemployment rate in Los Angeles?,” it will give you a correct number and links to other related sources. It allows you to use natural language to find information easily and quickly.
