MacWorld plowed through the thousands of tip calculators and fart apps to find those that will help you save money and stay on task at school this year.
The top 10 iPhone apps for back to school include:
- Google Mobile App
- Amazon Mobile
- Wordbook English Dictionary and Thesaurus
- Documents To Go
- Mobile calculators
- Pandora Radio
- iFlipr Flashcards
The best part about these low priced apps is that most will save you money as well as make class easier. Stanza provides access to more than 50,000 free e-books including many popular college reading selections. Amazon Mobile makes it easy to price check your textbooks just like ShopSavvy for the Android.
Perhaps the most valuable applications are the mobile calculators and Mint.com. With the PI83 Mobile calculator you can replace a $100 TI 83 calculator with a $1 application. Finally, the Mint.com app, as well as other personal finance tracking apps, is an easy way to track finances and avoid nasty overdraft fees.
If you already have an iPod Touch or iPhone you can't afford not to have these apps loaded on your phone this fall.
