Looking for a smart way to get a leg up on your new school year? Check out my picks below.
1) Here Comes The Bus app (Free: iOS & Android)
School systems are adopting a GPS technology to reduce parents frayed morning nerves when getting the kids out the door to meet the school bus. Here Comes the Bus is an easy-to-use app that lets you view the real-time location of your child’s bus on your smartphone, tablet or computer.
With Here Comes the Bus app, you can send your child to the bus stop at just the right time, helping to avoid missed buses or long waits in freezing temperatures, pouring rain, the hot sun or rush-hour traffic. Check to see if you school has added this new free app to the list.
- Study on the go
- Play games that make learning fun
- Create your own flashcards (or search millions created by others)
- Improve your study habits
- Study with images and audio, great for all learning styles
3) myHomework Student Planner app (free iOS, Android, Mac App, Windows, & Kindle Fire)
This is the best way to keep track of all homework assignments and manage your time to get them done. No more excuses that your dog ate your homework when you have the power of this app nagging you to better grades.
4) Level Money app (free iOS & Android)
Level takes the hassle out of budgeting, which is especially helpful if you’ve never had to manage your own money before. The app let’s you see what’s “spendable” based on your budget along with connecting to your bank and credit cards and automatically tracking your spending and income. What you spend on bills is subtracted from your income to determine how much money you should part with each day.
