      Quizlet is the classic digital flashcard program. It has fewer bells and whistles than StudyBlue, but is widely used and focuses simply on quizzing students on their materials. As an undergraduate, I was impressed to find that their crowd-sourced library was indeed vast—when I searched for vocabulary sets from my biblical Greek textbook, every chapter was there.

      Research papers are a core component of most college courses, meaning the dreaded, time-consuming works cited (in proper MLA or APA form, of course!) is going to be important for you. This app allows you to scan the barcode of a book, immediately pull up its correctly-formatted works cited entry, and email it to yourself. Scan, send, paste, done.
