Apps to help make your school year successful

Posted: Updated:

 MADISON (WKOW)--Back-to-school is just around the corner and this year there are plenty of options that will allow your student to go paperless.

Many Android and Apple apps out there might be helpful for a successful school year.

The first app you might find useful is called myHomework Student Planner. It's a great way for students to keep up with homework, due dates and all the activities they are involved in. The app is free and accessible for all iPhone, Android and tablet users.

The next app called Quizlet lets you make on-the-go flash cards for that upcoming test. It also features audio playback in 18 different languages.

When writing an essay it can sometimes be tricky to organize all your thoughts. This app, Simple Mind Free, can help you do just that. It's a mind mapping tool that turns your phone or tablet into a brainstorming and thought structuring device.

If your high school and college age kids are looking for a great way to keep up on their reading, try Kno. This app lets you access your textbooks. You can mark, highlight, and attach post-its to your pages to make studying that much easier.

OneNote is a similar Microsoft version which allows you to access your notes on any device.

These are just a few of the many free apps to think about downloading to help prepare for a new school year.
