    [app]iHomework[/app] is a great planner type of app. Keeps track of grades, assignments, class locations, etc. Neat little app that I can see myself using a lot once the semester kicks into gear again :)

    iHomework and iStudiez Pro seem to be winners.

    I'm using iProcrastinate to keep track of my homework and due dates, and use Evernote to take/sync notes between my mac and iPhone.

    Nursing students may find the Davis Drug Guide app to be invaluable. I use it all the time. It makes life so much easier not having to carry around a drug guide and not having to index every drug. Down side: it's $50...but worth every bit of it.
    Aside from that, I find that the native apps are very useful. I use Calendar as my organizer, Calculator to do dosage calculations, Voice Recorder to record lectures, Notes to jot down quick messages from the teacher, Mail to forward my school email to my G-Mail account, Clock to make sure I'm not late and to wake me up during my power naps, and oh yea, I can't forget my TomTom app to show me the way to get to school (since it's a two hours drive, no joke)...and iPod to help with the drive, lol.

    I just bought iHomework. iStudiez Pro looks good as well, I may try that out too if the price drops at all.

    Pi Cubed. Best "Calculator" - Math App by far. Something every Math, Natural Science Student needs.

    Even better for the Students: A lite version with 0 Costs available. Save the money to spend for Christmas ;)

    Are there useful study aides out there for specific subjects?

    Like specific for maths or science or something.

    I could really do with a study aide for physics or chem or maths.

    Any suggestions would be sweet.

    I just launched Davis and it found vicodin after only typing in "vico." I like Davis, because it tells you everything you need for your practice. It presents the information just like the book does. It has everything from dosing, chemical and therapeutic actions, drug and Y-site compatibility, and just about everything you can think of. One down side is that you can't actually select two or more drugs to see if they're compatible with each other (similar to what epocrates does)...but then again, I've never had to do that. I've only ever had to check on two drugs at a time and each drug lists what they aren't compatible with anyway. As for how it compares with lexi-complete...I don't know if a $50 subscription app can even compare with a $300 app. I would've gotten lexi-complete, but I don't know about renewing that subscription for another $300/yr though as it says in the app description.

    Nothing can match lexi-complete in my opinion...I use it nearly every day and always has everything I ever need.

    Well worth the $300 a year subscription.

    Math and other apps

    Math Ref is a great math reference app. There's both a free and paid version. The paid has more content. There's also ChemiCal for chemistry and Quick Graph for creating quick graphs of functions.

    I would consider MindJet to be one of them. Mind Mapping is good for students.

    [app]Instaviz[/app] would be the best mindmapper for if you need to be able to link more than just mother to child nodes.

    I was thinking about getting a homework app for college, but I might just utilize my Google Calendar account and do it that way and set it up for sms notifications.
