Here’s a quick run-down of the 5 best back to school apps to help parents and kids stay organized, productive and stress free this school year.

1) Timetable – A personal organizer designed for students (FREE)

This app is great for Android users who want to manage their school or university life. Timetable syncs across all Android devices and even automatically mutes your phone during classes.

With support for the DashClock Widget, you’ll see events on your lock screen. There are additional widgets for your home screen that give you glimpse at upcoming classes, along with what lessons and tasks are due now.

No matter what your child’s age, staying on top of homework assignments, class schedules and tests can be overwhelming. With a clean interface and design, this app is great for college, high school, or middle school students. This well laid out, simple to use app helps students stay organized and on track.

One great feature about this app is the ability to see all daily tasks below a simple daily calendar view. A dot on the calendar gives you quick reference to when projects and assignments are due. From the menu, you can view homework notes, classes, teachers and announcements.

3) Brainscape – A modernized version of Flashcard studying (FREE)

Put down the pen and paper and pick up your phone to begin the new wave of flashcard studying. While the app itself is free, pre-made sets of flashcards are available for purchase to assist in learning things like world geography or foreign languages.

At the touch of a button, you’ll always know who has a dentist appointment, who needs to be at soccer practice, what time the school dance recital is and whose turn it is for carpool. This app also includes a recipe box and grocery list so family members can add to your list as needed. The days of coming home with everything but the one thing you needed are over.

5) TeamSnap – Effortlessly, keep track of after-school activities (FREE)
