    Hey guys,

    We thought that since you are starting uni this September, a list with top 10 best apps for your ipad or android tablet would be helpful. Here is our ranking:
    1. Dropbox (free; multiple platforms)- If you want to be spared of the hassle of carrying a USB stick with you to class or you just want to back-up your computer, Dropbox really comes in hand. As a first time user you only get 2GB free, but you can add more storage every time you recommend a friend or follow their social media pages.
    2. Digg( free; iOS, Android)- This app is perfect if you like keeping up with the news. The team of editors of Digg app curate the best stories and video on the internet.
    3. Exam time (free; iOS, Android)- This app allows you to create mind maps, Notes, Flashcards and Quizzes, which are meant to help you improve your studying and learn easier for your exams.
    4. Circle of six (free; iOS, Android)- Do you have to stay late in the library to study? This app is meant to make you feel safer by connecting you with 6 contacts of your choice. It also has a default message to be sent with your location at any time.
    5. Text Hold`em (free; iOS, Android)- This app is perfect when you want to be saved the embarassment or trouble of sending 'drunk' or 'angry' texts. This app marks the contacts in your phone either as angels or devils. Then, if you go out, texts that are sent to devil contacts will be held for a set amount of time. Only after that time has passed you can go back and approve to send them.
    6. Babylon( free; iOS, Android)- If you are looking for an excellent translator, then this is your app. It translates more than 75 languages and is a good tool to help you with key vocabulary.
    7. Mathway (free; iOS, Android)- If you are stuck on a problem or you just need some help with your homework, just enter your problem in the app and see if you got the right answer.
    8. EasyBib( free; iOS, Android) -This app allows you to take pictures of a book`s barcode or just search for it`s title and it generates an accurately styled citation, ready to be copied and pasted into your biblography.
    9. Oxford Dictionary (free; iOS, Android)- No matter what subject you are studying, this app is a must have. It`s perfect for all those times when someone uses a word you don`t know what it means.
