The bells have stopped ringing, the trees have come down, and those unwanted gifts are returned. So what comes next? Our annual broken promises to ourselves: New Year’s resolutions. With each new year that rolls in so do our claims of change for the upcoming year. So how exactly do we keep our resolutions all year long? Lucky for us we live in a time where technology makes everything, almost everything, possible. Below is a compiled list of free iPhone apps that help you keep those resolutions in check.

Never miss a task with ReQall, which enables you to enter new tasks through voice and text entry. This app gathers and manages your to-do list.

Education: iTunes U
Take free courses created by instructors from known colleges and universities and others. See all assignments and check them off as you complete them. With iTunes U you can take notes and highlights in iBooks, record lectures with audio and videos, store books, documents and presentation on your phones. Missed a class? Connect with other students in your class where they can share notes, lectures etc. on available social networks.
Side Note: If your school is not listed on iTunes U or need more resources, look on your schools website and look for links to keep you connected to your school, usually found under the media section!
