July is ending and the rush to prepare for back-to-school has begun. Technology tools are high on the list of essentials for K-12 and college students. Among the tools available are apps for smartphones and tablets. Android users have a huge amount of apps available to choose from. Luckily, many are free or have free trials. And to help, Techsnoop has rounded up some great premium paid apps you can get for FREE.

Today and tomorrow (July 31 and August 1) Amazon is offering a group of productivity apps for free, including Essential Anatomy 3, a great app offering a wealth of health and anatomy information in a beautiful 3D format.

Also available is the Oxford Advanced Learners Dictionary, a $30.00 value, FREE! It includes voice search and response so you can find a word even if you can’t spell it properly. What a great gift for bloggers.

Language Coach and MathsApp Graphing Calculator are great back to school apps that save parents money twice. The app is free and you don’t need to purchase an expensive calculator, just have your student use the app on their smartphone. It also frees up the all-important backpack space for snacks.

And last but not least, the super app for the people who have to keep track of all the school and extra curricular activities; Keep Track Pro. With the ability to create categories, tasks and set alarms, you now will appear to have Superpowers! Never miss a practice or event again.

Let Techsnoop know in the comments if any of these apps have simplified your life. Techsnoop will have a cappuccino now and relax, it’s on the schedule.
