Find the best apps for your academic work
Take notes and organize them for findability
Take notes in formats that work best for you, including audio notes, handwritten notes, or by typing. With apps like Notability, Penultimate, and Evernote you can input information, organize and tag it, and find it again in the massive storehouse of data that most scholars accumulate.
Streamline your research
Streamline your research with apps like Papers 3, Pubget, and Wolfram Alpha. Learn how other academics are using these apps to increase their productivity.
Synchronize your life
In this multi-device, multi-platform world, you need the best tools for keeping in sync everywhere. Apps like Dropbox, Evernote, Box, and Google Drive help you avoid synchronization insanity.
Present information effectively
