EasyBib is a citation generator that supports many different types of citation which can be changed easily in a pinch.

There are plenty of schedule apps out there, but of those with a scholastic theme, this offers the best functionality and usability.

This app offers a free version with a basic scholarship search or a paid version for a one-time fee of $2.99. The paid version has advanced searches and personalized results. Considering how much could potentially be saved, the money would be well spent.
This app makes flashcards convenient and eliminates the possibility of dropping them all over the floor. Students can create their own flashcards, share them with their class or study group, then proceed to study at any spare moment until the last possible second. Like so many others on this list, StudyBlue is free. It is also a multi-platform app, allowing students to study no matter what device they happen to be using at the time.
This app lets students schedule their assignments and track the grades, and will keep the information over multiple semesters if needed. Ideal for high school or college, this app also includes a class scheduler and organizer. It reduces stress and allows a student to be aware of what they need on assignments to achieve the grade they want, avoiding a bad grade in the process.
A plethora of apps for students are available today. Those here are some of the best on the market, but if they do not suit your needs for whatever reason, there will be one out there that does. Simply search in the app store and see what you find.
