If you’re a college student then it’s time to start packing your things and buying this year’s textbooks. As you prepare to return to school you may be moving into a new apartment, dorm room or sorority/fraternity house. If you’re lucky enough to have a kitchen to cook in, you’ll be looking for simple, easy recipes. Fridge and cupboard storage space is probably limited and a student’s budget means the kitchen is only outfitted with basic utensils and appliances. You would be doing good just to avoid ordering pizza every night, so trendy, cheffy recipes are out and affordable, satisfying recipes are in.
As a busy student, your iPad is the key to avoiding takeout and enjoying healthy, home cooked meals. Choosing the right apps will ensure you’ve got great resources for finding quick, easy, affordable recipes and executing them successfully. I’ve carefully searched the Appstore to create a collection of must-have cooking apps for college students. Keep reading to get my top five picks for scholarly foodies.
Yep, it’s that time of the year again. Hundreds and thousands of students around the world have graduated from high school and are currently loading up their parents’ cars almost to bursting point, raiding the kitchen cupboards for tins of soup and instant noodles and shipping off to either college or university, depending on which part of the world you’re from. It’s a difficult time for a lot of people but I believe university really marks the second stage in your life when you lave home, brush up on both your ironing and social skills, and discover what kind of a person you really are.
Besides the countless things you’ve got to think about, there’s one thing that is worth considering — should I get a new computer for university? There are hundreds of great deals out there for students looking to buy a new computer for their studies (including Apple’s very own, and very generous, education discount) but I believe that an iPad should be your essential purchase for university. As a recent graduate and proud iPad owner, I can truly say that I wouldn’t have survived college with one, and I found it indispensable on so many different occasions.
Student life can be daunting; assessments, deadlines, classes, exams and maybe even a social life. It doesn’t have to be this difficult though. The iPad is naturally a great productivity tool and, loaded with the right apps, it can be your best weapon for surviving education.
Most of these apps cost less than a pint of your favourite beer and will increase your productivity leaps and bounds, saving you countless hours of otherwise wasted time. Start reading now and learn how to ensure you never miss a deadline again!
