Apps for High School Students: Productivity

This is the third installment of our Apps for High School Students series here on the blog. Today we are sharing a few great apps for Productivity. This is a really important topic for high school students, and one that maybe doesn’t get enough attention.

Being productive and exercising good time management are crucial to being successful in school, especially once you get to college. Mastering these skills becomes even more important when you enter the workforce. Usually, there’s no one telling you how to do your work or when or how much time to spend on it, all of that responsibility falls on you (the student)!

The apps we are going to share with you today can help you practice these skills as you are working through your high school career or heading into your college years.

myHomework
myHomework is a FREE app for iPhone and iPad that provides a place to keep track of homework assignments, so you never forget another assignment! The app includes a calendar where you can see when assignments are due, a class schedule where you can store all the information for your classes, and a web-companion where you can sync and view your assignments.

 

 

iStudiez Pro
iStudiez Pro is an iPhone and iPad app that offers many of the same features of myHomework (above) but also offers much much more! This app is a great way to organize your entire life. Keep track of class schedules, assignments, grades, and push notifications to let you know of upcoming tasks that are due or events that are scheduled. For a limited time, get this robust app for only 99¢!

 

 

Promodoro
Promodoro is a great app for keeping track of time and making the most of your time! This app is a complement to the Pomodoro Technique of time management which suggests making a list of your tasks to be completed, tackling them one at a time for 25 minute blocks of time only. After working on a task for 25 minutes, take a 5 minute break! After 4 25 minute periods (Pomodoros) take a longer break. This app includes not only a Pomodoro timer, but a task list and stats sheet as well. See if you can beat yesterday’s productivity by completing more pomodoros today! This would be great for students learning how to better manage their time and is great for encouraging breaks when working – which is so important!

 

Evernote
Any student who doesn’t yet know about the power of Evernote, you need to download this app now! Evernote is an amazing and simple note-taking app. However, it’s so much more than that! You can add web clips, photos, and voice reminders. Then, share your notebook with other people you may want to collaborate with on a project or keep it to yourself. Either way, you can access your Evernote account across multiple devices (iPhone, iPad, etc.) and on the web, which is nice because you can get access to all your important notes no matter where you are! There are other great apps, products, and services that integrate with Evernote to make the experience even better – including LiveScribe pens! Perhaps best of all, Evernote – and it’s apps – are all completely FREE!

 

We hope you will try some of these recommendations this year to help you be more productive and practice good time management. If you have any other suggestions for Productivity apps for students, we would love to hear about them – Share them in the Comments!

Sneak Peek of Our New App

Our new app will be released this Friday and we could not be more excited. This project has been in the works since last summer and we worked really hard to get this done and ready for this coming season.

We are thrilled to share a sneak peek of our new app, Caddy2Go, with you today!

Caddy2Go is an awesome miniature golf scorekeeping app with lots of exciting features!

The team here at Campfire Apps loves to play mini golf and spend a lot of our summer doing just that in Ocean City, MD. We have tried some other scorekeeping apps out there, and they just don’t cut it. We wanted something that looks awesome when you open it and gives you some functionality beyond just keeping score. Since we spend so much of our time playing mini golf (or putt-putt) we take a lot of photos. So try and picture this…

We are on the mini golf course, carrying a putter and golf ball, a paper scorecard, a pencil that is just too tiny, and a camera or our iPhone. Now, how is the scorekeeper ever supposed to make a great shot if they have all pf this stuff weighing them down?

Caddy2Go solves a lot of these problems! For starters, you always have your phone so it only seemed logical to use that to keep score with. Then, we added an in-app camera, so you don’t have to close the app to take photos of your friends doing crazy things on the golf course. Finally, we added fun achievements that you can unlock just by playing the game the way you normally would. You can earn the “Ace!” badge for getting a Hole in One or the “Most Strokes for Your Buck!” badge for, well, scoring much higher than a Hole in One. After playing, you can see how you ad the other players ranked and what achievements everyone earned, then you can share your photos on Facebook and Twitter, or via email.

Let’s take a closer look…

Select players from your Contacts, then easily assign each a ball color

Simple score input and uncluttered scorecard. Keep score for up to 8 players at a time.

At game's end, review all of the achievements earned by each player.

Again, Caddy2Go will be released on Friday. To celebrate it’s launch, we will be hosting a Launch Party on our Facebook page all day on Friday! You are all invited to attend.

We Have a New App!

The Campfire Apps team is so excited to announce that we have a brand new app that is finally complete! This is an app we have been working on since last summer. We are very thrilled that it is done and almost ready to be shared with the world!

We will be officially releasing the app this weekend and celebrating with a small little Launch Party on Facebook on Friday. We hope you will be able to join us. There will be more details to follow this week about our party on Friday.

However, for now, we would like the app to be a little bit of a mystery! We are going to share some clues with you about the app, and we would like for you to play along and see if you can figure out what our app is or does. Are you in??

Clue #1: Our app can be used by friends, families, and children.

Clue #2: Our app can be used by people young or old. Age is no matter here.

Clue #3: Our app will be used primarily outside.

Clue #4: A photo clue:

Clue #5: Our app is related to a particular past-time popular in Ocean City, Maryland and other vacation towns.

Ok, those are your five clues for figuring out what our new app is or does. Do you have any ideas? Let us know! Share your ideas in the comments here or on our Facebook page. You can also tweet us your ideas!

Adapting to Facebook Changes

Hi all! You may have noticed by now that Facebook has, yet again, made some changes. Today we are talking a little about the conversion to Facebook Timeline. As of March 31, all business pages were automatically converted to the new style of profile, the Timeline. I think for personal pages, some people have chosen to make the switch, but it is not mandatory (yet!).

So what does that mean for Campfire Apps? Well, it doesn’t really mean too much change. Personally, I think the new Timeline looks great when there are images included in posts and items on your page, so you can probably expect to see more images included. But I don’t think that’s a bad thing, do you??

Aside from that there has been only one other major change that you will notice as soon as you see our page…the Cover! So, the new Facebook Timeline design includes a huge space at the top of your page where you can spotlight a featured image. This can be an image to highlight your product or service that you offer, and some businesses have chosen GREAT images for their Covers. It has been inspiring.

Of course, we have created an awesome Timeline Cover, at least we think so! So what do you think it could be??

We wanted our Cover to be an image that would be instantly recognizable to our brand, something that our customers would automatically know is ours when they see it. We also wanted an image that would embody our products and show what it is that we do as a company.

Here is a snapshot, sneak peek of our new Facebook Cover image:

Are you curious?? We hope so! Go ahead and hop over to our Facebook page and check out our new page design. Please, feel free leave us a comment, either here or on Facebook, and let us know what you think! We love to hear from our friends out there.
