Apple’s revolutionary product, the iPhone, remains a ‘dream come true’ for many of us, including students, who are heading back to school these days. We just thought it would be a great idea to find out a bunch of iPhone apps that would help little masterminds increase their productivity and knowledge, besides putting their phone to some sensible use. And the time seems right, right?
Well, we troubled our dear iPhone a little bit and were successful to handpick some Free iPhone apps (so that your pockets suffer) that will aid a lot in daily life of a student. If you are looking for some more options, then check out the collection of the best iPhone Apps for 2009. Here you go.
My Schedule Lite
Time management is essential for students, there is no denying in that and ‘My Schedule lite’ helps a lot in this. Apparently, it’s a free version of the paid app, ‘My Schedule’ and thus, lacks some features but it still does the job. First of all, it’s easy to use and pretty straightforward too. It’s effortless to create and manage tasks, shade colors to them for easy identification, ranking and organizing them all, accordingly. You can even add notes for more comfort so that you remain updated of the progress made with a particular task. There is more to explore but we leave that part for you, you love discovering yourself, don’t you?
Free Graphing Calculator
Well, you know how much you depend on a calculator. But you don’t like carrying that extra inventory around and when you got an iPhone, you don’t need to, thanks to Free Graphing Calculator. It features a scientific calculator capable of solving all your math needs right on your phone, but what’s so exciting here is that you can view graph of your calculations, as the name of the app itself suggests. You can view graph of 4 equations simultaneously which are well labeled and can be pinched to zoom in/out, too. That apart, there are loads of other functions you can trouble yourself with, like: Unit Converter, Constants for Scientific Equations, Quadratic Formulas and more exploration in Algebra, Trigonometry, Vectors, Vector Calculus, and Classical Mechanics.
So much on the favorite multitouch 3.5 inch screen, you surely won’t want to carry your calculator now.
StudySETS – Psychology Lite
Again, a free version of the paid app. The app aims at making learning simple and convenient for students, in an innovative way. But it’s constrained to one subject, Psychology. Topics range from ‘Conditioning’ and ‘Memory’ to ‘Personality’ and ‘Neuroscience’, as also the directory of common vocabulary and key people, complete with online Wikipedia entries.
Math Ref Free
Want help with ‘Maths’? Then, this app is for you. Whether you need a formula or are looking for an example to understand a formula you have in hand, it proves very handy. Moreover, it offers you tips too, along with sharing figures of math function or equations for easy understanding. What’s more? It covers huge variety of categories, which are more than enough for you. Maths feels pretty easy now, what do you think?
The name speaks for itself but can’t stop from saying, Wow! what an app. Explore the galaxy right on your mobile’s screen. Visit your stars — favorite or not, tell them a thing or two — or check out what’s launching into space by NASA when, get more info on NASA missions, and share all that on facebook directly.

First of all, it’s FREE for a limited time only and has just been updated (July 9, 2010 to be exact). It’s totally focused on Quadratics. Explore as much as you want. I’m not a quadratic guy, so can’t dig too deep into it, but it would suffice to say that it can solve all your basic quadratic needs with graphs. With new settings and features, it’s a must app for relevant people.
