Must-Have Apps For Students

Lookout Mobile Security – Whether they’re downloading apps for studying or for fun, Lookout scans all downloaded apps prior to installation to make sure they’re free from the malware, spyware and malicious links that collect personal information and issue unauthorized phone charges.  Better yet, for the student who always loses their phone, Lookout includes a “Missing Device” feature which tracks one’s lost or stolen phone on an online map and can even sound a loud alarm!

TheFind – For the student fashionista, TheFind’s iPhone app allows you to scan products on your mobile device, compare prices online and purchase directly in the most cost efficient way.

Qik Video Connect – This free app allows students to video chat live with loved ones around the world, whether they’re on WiFi, 3G, 4G or WiMax. And when you can’t chat live, there’s always Video Mail so videos can either be sent directly to friends and family, or shared on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. Students can also share what they’re seeing with friends and family by livestreaming their Qik videos to social networks, as well.

Foursquare – For the student looking for post-studying fun, Foursquare is one of the most interactive apps around for college students to explore new places and find the best deals at local restaurants and bars.
