A collection for iOS and Android apps for research, study, productivity, and more!

Guide Introduction

This guide gathers some of the best iOS and Android apps for students, faculty and researchers. You can use these apps to stay productive no matter where you happen to be. The apps on this guide are free, but some may include ads or offer a 'pro' version for a fee.

Some of the apps listed in this guide allow you to access content that is only available to MCC students and faculty (the names of these apps have been highlighted). Some noteworthy examples are the Gale Access My Library, EBSCOhost, and Canvas apps.

If you have any additional questions, please contact the MCC Library Reference Desk.
