Your phone is great for checking social media, taking pictures with friends, and listening to music.

1. Google Drive/Docs

These are handy for making quick changes from your phone.

2. Target

Use the cartwheel function to find all kinds of savings on items when you stock up on snacks and necessities. It helps cut down your total immensely, and makes you feel less guilty for buying those late-night binge snacks.

3. A Coffee Shop App

Whether you're a Starbucks sucker, a Dunkin' Donuts fanatic, or a Coffee Bean lover, download the corresponding app. Each purchase gets you points that eventually get you a free drink. You'll also learn about special sales without pesky emails cluttering your inbox!

4. Netflix

This is great for when you have extra time between classes but don't want to lug your laptop along

5. A Password App

I recommend using 1Password. The app can hold all your logins and secure notes. You'll never have to call Mom and Dad again to get your Social Security number.

6. GroupMe

GroupMe is handy for group chats when not all members have the same phone type (it will happen. A lot.). GroupMe can be checked in a web browser, so you don't have to go back and forth between your laptop and phone when working on that group project.

7. Blackboard

If your school uses Blackboard as their homework platform, the app is a must. You won't waste time opening a tab on your phone and logging in. Because who wants to spend extra time trying to see if the professor uploaded a "class cancelled" announcement?

8. Uber/Lyft

Do NOT drink and drive.

9. A Food Ordering App

GrubHub, Postmates, take your pick. The price is worth breaking the monotony of dining hall food.

10. Quizlet

Quizlet is a great study tool. You enter the information that's on the test, and Quizlet generates questions based off that. Think of it as a practice test. Now you'll do better on the exam worth a crazy amount of your grade!

11. Spotify

Thousands of songs, available for free. Or you can spend $4.99 per month to listen offline, have unlimited skips, and more. And right now, Spotify is doing a package deal with Hulu for students. Two services for $5? Yes, please.

    It's A Beautiful Day To Ignore The Day

    It's a Tuesday, late afternoon. The sun is glowing. The birds are certainly chirping and the breeze is a-blowin through the trees and the moss dangles in wisps throughout the branches. But where are you? Where am I? Where are we all? Probably inside, completely ignorant of the beauty that is happening outside our doors with or without our acknowledgment. And we're probably on our phones.

    Txt Me Back

    Does anyone else cringe with this new weekly report from our trusty iPhone that lets us know just how much time we averaged on our device that week? I do. Every time. And it was such an accomplishment to see that I went down 4 hours from the week before last week. Four hours!!! What even? That is whack that I could even go down that much, that there was even that much, to begin with. I think that we have forgotten how to sit in silence and think, to look around and take in the surroundings. We fill to gaps with apps on our phones instead. We fill the moments we wait for people to text us back with "scroll time" rather than "me time". Rather than look outside and sit in the shade and drink in the fresh air.

    Safety Net

    I think that our phones have become our safety nets, and this isn't necessarily a bad thing. If I ever feel uncomfortable walking alone to my car, I can whip out my phone and call my mom or my sister and feel a sense of security through being on a call. We use our phones in awkward situations. We use them to locate each other and to make sure everyone is safe. This is all so so so good! But I think we also are using them in circumstances where there is no problem, no emergency, no discomforting scenario. We are learning to be dependent on them. And though it's not all bad, I challenge you to take a walk outside next time you find yourself mindlessly scrolling over the same Instagram feed for the 12th time that hour. Look at the trees and at the birds that fly by you.

    Break up with your phone for a sec. You might be less bored.
