Apps for the home stretch

Reading week, final papers, final projects, final exams. Here’s a survival kit from the apps on tap team:

Before your laptop, iPad or phone is stolen, install Prey. It’s free, and highly recommended. Just look at the happy faces of people with their recovered laptops. Look at them.

Still looking for a summer job? Take a break and make an infographic resume with

Tune out with White Noise.

Back up your work. Dropbox (2 GB free), Box (5 GB free).

Manage your citations with Refworks, and don’t forget the Word utility, Write-N-Cite.

Print to Libraries printers from your laptop? Sure.

Mobile stack-finder for Van Pelt? Sure.

Where to study, what’s open? PennStudySpaces.

Just the Libraries’ hours? Here.

Where’s the nearest PennBus / Shuttle stop? When’s the next stop? PennRides mobile.

Reserve a Library study room. Any library. Just Biomed. Just Education Commons.

Good luck!
