Pulse and Google Currents are very useful applications when it comes to keeping up with current events. Google Currents offers the possibility of personalizing the tends that interest you and notifies you of new articles and posting. Pulse creates a “big picture” of the  current events that are occurring. And has all types of news on one, very page easy to see and read. Bloomberg News focused more on business and data so it is a good resource especially when writing statistical papers, homework, or looking for a quick fact to back up an idea either in class or with friends.

I like using Dropbox on the Android tablet. I can use it to view pretty much any kind of file, even mp3 files but I use Dropbox to view my syllabus,reviewing homework assignments or term papers,and PDF books, pretty much anything to read. I no longer need to carry the flash drives around.

Dropbox is very convenient because it can be install on pretty much any devices; all the pc platform such as Linux, Windows, Mac and  both Android and iPhone mobile platforms. When I’m workingat public computer that doesn’t has dropbox app, I can still pull out my files from www.dropbox.com. I’ve never face any kind of error yet so far from this app.It is a very useful app for me.

Dropbox and Evernote have both been very useful applications. With Dropbox I can have my documents on the go without saving them to a USB or Hard drive. Also, I get easily exchange documents with other peers without the need of e-mailing, this especially came in handy when exchanging research material. Evernote is also helpful in saving and transferring my documents between different devices, however it is also useful for writing notes during classes and keeping organized notebooks. Both applications have helped me keep my documents and notes in an orderly fashion.
