 "Students now have a wealth of information at their fingertips - quite literally, since many students heading off to uni will have a smart-phone they can use to access the internet at the touch of a button. Apps are a particularly useful innovation, offering students useful benefits to suit their lifestyle when they aren't trying to beat their top Angry Birds score! Our top student app picks are below:"'s top smart-phone apps for students:

 1. Vouchercloud allows students to register for free and receive discount codes and vouchers for a host of participating outlets ranging from restaurants, supermarkets, clothing stores and many more. Particularly useful for those struggling on a student budget.

 2. Skype is a great way for students to keep in touch with family, especially those needing to make international calls. This app is free to download and remember that Skype to Skype calls are free - it doesn't get much cheaper than that!

 3. iXpenselt is great for students who are hopeless at budgeting. This app allows you to keep track of what you are spending whilst on the move, even featuring a camera to let you take pictures of receipts. There is also a handy reminder function to ensure you don't forget to log your spending...during those drunken nights out for example! This app which is available for the iPhone, costs £2.99 - bargain!

 4. Google Maps 5 will come to the rescue of students on their first night out in a new town without a clue where they actually are. An invaluable tool for those who have truly flown the nest and are living in a completely new city, this app is free to download.

 5. Mobile allowance lets students check their mobile phone allowance for how many free minutes and texts they have left. This is ideal for those who are prone to talking or texting too much and going over their limit and is available on iTunes at £0.69.

 6. Dropbox allows students to store, share and synchronise files across various devices hassle-free, which is ideal for those who move around and need to complete coursework/conduct research in more than one location. It offers users 2GB of space for free, and for a monthly fee, users have the option of increasing that storage capacity to 50GB and 100GB. It is free to download (2GB) and is available for Android phones.
