Believe it or not, free mobile apps can help you conquer the common hurdles of student life. Are you interested in going back to school to become an accountant? The right apps can help even the busiest students manage their time and earn their diploma, while minimizing everyday stresses.
And the best part? Using apps lets you carry your goals and schedule around in your pocket, so you’re never tethered to a home computer to squeeze in classwork or make a to-do list for the coming week.
Here’s our pick of the top five accounting student apps:
1. ‘Me’: Encouragement as You Work Toward Your Accounting Diploma Goals
You may be interested in pursuing an accounting diploma because you want to improve your earnings, qualify for a promotion at work, or launch a brand new career. Your training will mark a turning point in your life – setting you on the path toward a more rewarding profession and financial security for your family.
The “Me” app features 1:1 coaching and a community of users who share encouragement as you get closer to achieving your personal and professional goals. You can even invite friends and family members to join in and see updates you post about your progress.
The “Me” app is a great little tool for maintaining a positive attitude about your journey through college, and keeping your eye on the “prize” that awaits you after graduation.
2. ‘Accounting Calculator’ is a Must-Have at Accounting College
This free application incorporates all the basic functionality of a normal calculator with some extras designed specifically for accounting students. If you’re considering (or have already enrolled in) accounting school, this app is a must-have.
With the Accounting Calculator at your fingertips, you’ll always be able to see the current tax rate and apply it simply to your calculations in school. And the app’s tax ‘+’ and ‘-‘ buttons make dealing with tax calculations that much faster and easier.
3. ‘Focus-Booster:’ Manage Tasks & Make Time for a Little Fun in Beautiful Victoria
Focus-Booster is a time management app that draws from the tried-and-true “Pomodoro Technique” to help you maximize your productivity.
Pomodoro is the Italian word for tomato, and refers to the technique of breaking up work into bite-sized amounts of time instead of trying to complete it all in one go. This handy app makes dividing time between school, work and family more doable, so you can make room for a little leisure time in and around beautiful Victoria.
Making time for exercise and relaxation is key to maintaining your momentum as a busy student.
