Summer is coming to a close as students in the Chicago area begin heading back to school! Here are some apps to make the transition go smoothly:

StudyBlue
Free for iOS and Android

Make your own study sets and add recommended content served up to you as you create your flashcards. Quiz yourself, track your progress and set reminders to study what you need to know. Select the study mode best for you whether it’s flipping flashcards or using our review sheets. Personalize your study sets with advanced formatting features, images and audio.

Easy Bib
Free for iOS and Android
A tool to format papers with over 7,000 citation styles. Just type in the name of the book, and EasyBib can make the citation; or take a picture of the book’s barcode to get the citation.

Algeo Graphing Calculator
Free for Android

Graphic calculators cost a TON, so downloading this app instead seems like an easy decision. This app is one of the most complete graphic calculator apps out there, but it’s worth noting that some additional functions cost $1.99

For iOS, I recommend Free Graphing Calculator.
