As a student, you are always on the run, always late for that next course, or always in need of more time to finish up a report. But these problems do not stop when you finish college, and creating a good calendar is of the utmost importance. Think of this as having a your personal secretary all the time with you.
Well, your smartphone is always with you, and so, it can very easily double as your personal secretary. With the right management app, everyone, from the student looking for the next course, to the businessman searching for the next appointment, can benefit from having all the information that they need, delivered to them when they need it.
The best management apps for students
I can attest to the need of having a good time manager for keeping track of all my daily tasks, and I know first hand how useful an app like the ones we will feature here can be. They allow you to not worry if an exam or paper is approaching and by setting your calendar and schedule, you have nothing to fear (at least, you won’t forget about them, you will still have a lot on your plate by doing them).
5. Pocket Informant-Events,Tasks
Offering some of the best features of all the management apps we’ve seen until now, this app has all it takes to take the spot of the best one, but for all its features and tools, it has one major drawback: it’s much more expensive than the others featured in this top, going for $10, and users that want multi-platform sync, there is an extra tax they have to pay for the PC version.
If price is not the issue, then this app is the very best in Android management, offering users a host of features that will allow them to keep a detailed schedule for all their tasks. The app allows access to almost all areas of the smartphone, including calendar, contacts, email and much more.

In true fashion of iOS apps, the menu of iProcrastinate is very simple and good looking. Its menus are very easily accessible, so the app is extremely user friendly. This coupled with the smooth and fast browsing makes it one of the best student management apps of all.

1. Student T.A
Student TA is much more than a simple management app for students, as it can cover pretty much any part of your life and let you organize anything. Its Google Plus-like interface allows users to swipe to the right to reveal a menu where all the different options are. Here, users can find a to-do list, appointments, calendar, music or social networks like Facebook or Twitter.
The app’s integration with so many services give it an almost operating system feel, and by using it, some users could do just about any task from the app, without having to use other apps. The concept of Student TA is amazing, showing us that most virtual assistants and management apps have a lot of catching up to do.

These are awesome apps that will free your mind of having to remember every last detail of your day. Also, some of them will give you the possibility to use them as more than just schedule apps, they will become the new interface of your phone and a gateway to the smartphone’s other features.
