Take on your freshman year with these five apps

In Business & Technology /

By Laura Woodward

StudyBlue: the study tool that allows students to input content to create personalized course flash- cards, quizzes and review sheets.

Ryerson Mobile: some of its features include checking computer availability, OneCard balances, class schedules with a direct link to class location and group study room booking. There’s also a book barcode scanner used to check if an item is available at the Ryerson library.

Dropbox: eliminates the hassle of USBs by providing access to any of your files via computer, smart-phone, iPad and the web.

RefME: creates citations, bibliographies and reference lists by either scanning the book’s barcode or manually inputting the source’s information.

MyFitnessPal: tracks the nutrition – or lack of nutrition – of what you’re eating. Just scan the barcode of your food or manually search for it. This calorie counter makes the “Freshman 15” harder to gain. MyFitnessPal also tracks your exercise. Who knew playing pool burns 117 calories?
