Must-have smartphone apps this school year

"Life as a college student can be easier with the tap of a few University of Nebraska-Lincoln-related smartphone apps. We’ve listed some of the most useful, free apps for Huskers." summarizes

1. Nebraska
The official University of Nebraska-Lincoln app has almost everything a student needs for college. It includes a list of courses, informational videos about the university, a library catalog and a directory that shows contact information for faculty, staff and administrators.
But the app isn’t only focused on academics. Students can stay in the loop on what’s happening on campus and a news section that keeps students up-to-date on the most recent campus news.
There’s also a map, complete with GPS, that can help any lost freshman find his or her way to class. The “Athletics” tab has Husker schedules, scores and news for fans of all sports. The app also includes a page that allows students to share matters they feel need attention with the university, and an emergency button that shows the phone numbers of the UNL Police. Overall, it’s a great way to stay informed on campus.

2. Blackboard
The Blackboard Mobile Learning app does just about everything the website does. Students can check their classes’ Blackboard pages on the go, which allows them to check grades and announcements, post discussions and add content on blogs and journal posts. There are even some mobile-friendly tests students can take on the go.
One of its best features are the notifications. Students are alerted when tests are available or due, when there’s an announcement, when a course is available and when an assignment or test has been graded.
