You can even use the app to get updates on the job postings you're most interested in. When your dream job is posted, apply with your LinkedIn profile with just a single tap. If you need advice, there are groups with experts on just about every subject, which can also help you build your professional networks.

One of the great things about finally finishing school is having the time to read for pleasure, rather than the texts you're assigned in class. Get access to millions of books, newspapers and magazines, including free classics and the latest best sellers. Heading to college in September? Look for the e-book version of your required texts and save yourself a few dollars while carrying one less tree around all semester.

As our responsibilities increase, so does the importance of staying informed in a timely manner. Much more than a content management system for news, Flipboard is like a personal magazine that publishes every day.

Getting started is easy. Just specify which topics are most important to you using the app's intuitive interface, and Flipboard will begin recommending articles and stories. Follow friends and thought leaders and use the app to share the information you find the most entertaining and useful.
