4 Ways to Manage Sports, School and College Apps With Your iPhone

The fourth year of high school marks the final stretch for seniors who can finally walk the halls as ruling upperclassmen. Senior year is an exciting time; although, it can be plagued by the stressful college admissions process, looming deadlines and the dreaded SAT and ACT exams. Applying for financial aid, filling out the complicated FAFSA form and completing long college applications are time-consuming tasks that can make any senior (and their parents) stressed out.

Extra-curricular physical activities can help you refocus energies to prevent overwhelming frustration and family tension. Sports, in particular, can help foster a healthy balance between school obligations and fun activities because they release stress and rejuvenate the mind, body and spirit.

However, adding team practices and games to an already tight schedule has the potential to create additional stress. But this also serves as an opportunity to learn how to manage multiple responsibilities and tasks. Luckily, you can use the most effective and convenient organizational tool — your iPhone — to stay on track (anywhere, anytime). The following four features help ensure you don't arrive late to practice, miss an emerging deadline or forget about an SAT study session.

Siri

Siri is your intelligent personal digital assistant that is available on your iPhone 6. It is smart enough to understand what you say as you speak like you normally would to a person. The voice-activated, hands-free feature allows you to activate Siri with the simple command, "Hey Siri!" No matter what you're doing, you can ask Siri to set a reminder to study for the SAT, add weekly practices to your calendar or find directions to a college campus.

Evernote

Student ambassador Megan Cotter shares how Evernote helps college students de-stress through streamlined research and scanned handwritten notes and handouts. For example, if you're researching scholarship opportunities online, Evernote Clearly eliminates distractions and provides only what you need from a website. Losing track of all your SAT study notes and financial aid papers? Use Evernote to scan them into organized and searchable digital versions right on your phone.

Cal

CNET ranks Cal highly for its sleek, minimal design that features colorful photo backgrounds. With Cal, scheduling and creating to-do lists can be a daily aesthetic experience. Rely on Cal to see your daily agenda, such as playing at an after-school game and then finishing an essay. The daily agenda chronologically lists all your tasks in an impressive layout. And its beautifully designed interface helps balance life by showing what has yet to be accomplished and what has already been completed.

Sunrise

The main view of Sunrise includes a list of events in the upcoming week, as well as a monthly view at the top. With a single, quick glance, you can stay up-to-date on your weekly agenda and also see dates and days within the month for scheduling purposes. Sunrise offers a clutter-free, visually appealing design and provides location-based weather forecasts. It can sync with other smart features like Google Calendar, iCloud, Evernote and TripIt Plans, according to Tom's Guide.
