I'm moving out and living in a flat for college in a few months. What are the best apps for students from recipes to shopping to living in general.

It's a great way of saving costs on printing, instead of having to pay for printing out everything you can print for free in exchange for a small advert at the bottom of your page. Which is handy for revision notes. When you are ready to hand an assignment in it's then easy to switch to the paid option :)

Although I developed this app, it was for my own use at university. And it served me well when I wanted to quickly get a bit of information, or do some initial research before I went deeper into a topic.

Useful for saving articles/web pages for later reference. I made this tool so I am a bit partial, but a lot of users tell me that they use it for research and sharing articles with colleagues and team mates.
