    A back to school apps list without Evernote? You’ve gotta have Evernote if you’re a student. The BlackBerry app is free and beautiful. Makes me want to go back to school just so I can snap a picture of the blackboard at the end of class instead of taking notes all the way through class like we did back in the day. Or record audio and/or video of the whole lecture. Check it out.
