24 Aug

The Internet has become a valuable resource to today’s college student. There are many free tools available that can help you keep up with your life.; many of these you may not know about. So in order to help you out, we’ve decided put together a list of our favorite free online tools. Be sure to let us know what you think and how you like the different tools. Enjoy!

1. Dropbox

Have you ever needed to save a file and didn’t have a thumb-drive? Has your computer ever crashed right before finishing an important project? If you’ve ever found yourself in these situations, Dropbox is what you’ve been waiting for. Dropbox is a free service that lets you store your photos, documents, and videos online and access them from anywhere. Any file you save to Dropbox instantly syncs to all of your devices including computers, phones, and the Dropbox website. With Dropbox you get 2GB of storage for free, with the potential to gain up to 100GB. Your files are always available from the secure Dropbox website or Dropbox apps available on Windows, Mac, Linux, iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch, Android and BlackBerry. Accidentally delete a file? Dropbox keeps a one-month history of your work; any changes can be undone, and files can be undeleted. Head over to the Dropbox site and sign-up!

2. Mint

No. This has nothing to do with bad breath. Mint brings all your financial accounts together online, automatically categorizes your transactions, lets you set budgets & helps you achieve your savings goals. Mint also sends a weekly update that summarizes your spending and saving, plus you can set up email or text message alerts to help you avoid fees or warn you when you’re going over budget. No more over-drafting! Obviously, security is a big concern when it comes to finances; with Mint, you don’t have to worry . They use 128-bit SSL encryption–the same security that banks use–and all data is protected and validated by VeriSign and TRUSTe. They even have an iPhone and Android app so that you can track your money on-the-go. Mint makes it easier than ever to keep track of those precious dollars and cents.
