Get organised before you start the new school year with the iHomework app! Keep your courses, school work, grades, to-dos, teacher information all in one place to make sure you don’t miss a thing. The app is integrated with Questia (www.questia.com), a library that provides you with a wealth of material for researching purposes.

Kno Textbooks is an iPad app that will help lighten your backpack. There are more than 200,000 books available at reasonable prices, which means you can simply download any book you need straight to your device. Your textbooks will come to life with the benefits of interactive 3D models, search engines, and videos. Flashcards and journals are also incorporated to help your studies progress. With one click, Kno Textbooks also lets you share notes with friends and classmates.
World Atlas 2013 will put the whole world in your hands, and is an essential app for school these days especially in Geography. This app has a large amount of detailed geographical information and you will always know where you are when you open this app on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. Features include four maps that you can zoom in on: time zone, satellite, physical, and political. There are three different types of maps for bigger zoom options, a compass that shows your path, and very good details on each country.
My GradeBook for Student Grades & Homework will help calculate your assignment and course grades, as well as grades for the semester and GPAs.

In no time, you will figure out what you need to score on your next test or midterm. Now, it is up to you to keep those high grades!
Evernote helps you remember everything you need to and syncs across all devices you may use. You can keep notes to stay organised, save your ideas and improve productivity. Evernote allows you to capture photos, create to-do lists and even record voice reminders which are available from any device that you use. The notes you make are all searchable through the search feature on the application allowing you to find the notes you need when you need them.
