It happens every year: students vow to stay on top of academic work and remain organized all semester. In theory, it’s a great idea. In practice, however, it doesn’t always work.

But in today’s app-dominated world, students have a plethora of tools at their disposal to help them meet their academic goals.

Pass these apps along to students to help them stay organized and focused as they begin a new year. [Editor’s note: eCampus News has not reviewed these apps.]

1. iStudies Pro helps students track schedules, homework and grades. The weekly interface view gives users a structured presentation of their class schedules. Assignments view is a comprehensive tool to help students organize academic work.

2. Engineering Professional combines Chemical, Civil, Electrical, Environmental, Hydrology and Mechanical Engineering formulas into one app. The app features more than 650 formulas and 100 conversion formulas.
