25 Android Apps Every College Student Needs


So you made the plunge and now you’ve got yourself an Android handset.  Good for you!  So how do you take advantage of it?  You install great apps, of course.  One of our readers, James J Atkinson, put together a list of 25 Essential Android Apps for College Students which we find to be very well thought out and organized.  In fact, many of these apps could be used in other areas of life.
