Uni Apps To Get You Through Your First Year
Congratulations! You’re heading off to university. You’re sprouting your wings (fly fly) and you’re starting a whole new adventure of new people, new surroundings, new living situations (hello halls!) and new teachers.
As our congratulatory gift to you, we thought you might need some apps to help you along the way. Whether you’re in a lecture, revising, looking for new friends, meals to cook with the remains in your fridge or getting home from a night out.
Here are our top apps for when starting University
Sit back and watch the lecture in real-time, take notes and not worry about missing certain phrases or facts your uni-lecturer mentions. Sound Note will capture everything on audio for you and cite it into word format for you to read later.
Specifically designed for students, this app allows you to meet new people in your area.
This pre-night out games app creates fun for you and your friends. All you need to do is buy the beers.
If you feel unsafe, you can activate an SOS button which automatically notifies your chosen ‘guardians’ and they will be able to see and hear everything in real-time. You can also get your phone to dial a fake call if you’re in an awkward situation.
Rather than sifting through books and websites for citations and references, use this website (not an app) to source them quicker and easier.
If you’re a flashcard reviser, StudyBlue is your virtual revision answer. Either use the templates they’ve already designed on the app or create your own, to test yourself ahead of those pre-Christmas and new year exams.
Request an Uber anywhere at any time. From a freshers venue to a house party - they’ve got you covered!
Find any recipe, new or using leftovers in your fridge to create a meal. BigOven.
Last but not least, why not download our Ultimate University Packing Checklist to help you on your journey!
We understand that phones get lost on a night out - we’ve been there, done that, got the postcard and the t-shirt! That’s why we offer Klarna pay on our iPhones, so you can never not afford your replacement iPhone.
