11. Timetable

Available on: Android

Seemingly aimed at high school students, this wonderful little organization app shouldn't be overlooked for college. With a simple yet great looking UI, Timetable has calendars, grids for classes, notifications for lessons, task lists and syncing between devices. Timetable also has a neat little tool that auto-mutes your phone during class.


12. Google Keep

Price: Free

Available on: Android

Similar to Evernote, Google Keep basically does the same thing - checklists, photo notes with annotations and voice notes. It's worth adding to this list since it can be synced with Google Drive and sometimes, it's just nice to have everything in one place. Plus it's great for making a quick list of things to do.
