Back to School: Top 10 Must Have Android Apps for College Students

Worried about blowing your budget? Use the app (Free) to manage all your money in one place. View all your accounts — checking, savings, credit cards — and automatically add and categorize your transactions, all within the app.

The iHomework app ($1) makes organization a cinch. Use it to keep track of assignments, readings, courses, teachers, and schedules. Even better: you can set alarms for your homework and be notified of upcoming deadlines.

Pen and paper? So 2009. Try the Notability iPad app ($1) for note-taking, PDF annotation, typing, and recording. Customize the look with a variety of "pen" colors and paper styles, then add in links or photos. The coolest feature: if you remember the context of your scribbles, the audio recording capability allows you to tap a word to hear what was said at that moment.
