I’ve said it once, I’ll say it a million times over, I love apps.
This topic is a no brainer, here is 3 apps YOU NEED BEFORE you head to University (especially for the first time!)
FYI: I’ve linked the descriptions to the app store if you wish to find out more.
So, in no particular order here they are:
APP NO. 1
- 40,000 mapped locations
- 57 Australian uni’s and tafes
- 52,000 photos
- 150,000+ users
.. I mean what more can I say it must be good?
Find every tutorial room, lab, lecture theatre, coffee shop, carpark, bus stop, sports field, toilet, even your nearest vending machine and free microwaves. Plus campus “secret locations”. The app tells you how far each location is from you and how much time it will take to walk. A COMPASS even points you in the right direction! This is the holy grail for all first year university students (or those who have been hanging around for years, but don’t frequent many locations other than the cafe and library)
57 campuses from the following universities and TAFE’s are supported:
– University of Queensland
– Griffith University
NSW & ACT
– Sydney University
– Sydney Tafe
– Macquarie University
– University of Newcastle
– University of New England
– University of Wollongong
– University of Canberra
– Monash University
– Swinburne University
– Deakin University
– La Trobe University
– University of Melbourne
SA & WA

Smiling Mind is modern meditation, a unique web and app-based program developed by psychologists and educators to help bring balance to people’s lives.

Their mission is to provide accessible, life-long tools based in mindfulness meditation.
