City Kid Apps

Top Iphone Apps for NYC Students

New York City is definitely the apple of the world's eye. From the glistening lights of Times Square and the scenic views of Central Park, to the hustle and bustle of Wall Street, you can never find a place with more diverse resources and opportunities. As fantastic as variety may seem, too many options can certainly be overwhelming, especially to the Freshies just starting out at NYC schools.

Enter: the Iphone. Not only can this delicate little box of glass, steel and wires run up your parents monthly Verizon bills, it can be your main source of untapped information and resources to help organize a soon-to-be fast paced life. Yet with over 500,000 apps to choose from, it can be difficult to determine which ones are worth a sliver of your total memory.

So, if you're like me (technologically retarded challenged) and want to take advantage of all this city has to offer in your four short years of college, click on my lists (top left) and try these apps out for size. Most of them are free, so all you have to lose is a New York minute (and no, I do not mean your DVD copy of the Mary-Kate and Ashley movie).
