Going to college can be both an exciting and a terrifying idea, and 4 Year Trip is an app that is designed to help prospective college students find the best college for their needs. Developed by Alisa Armas, this app is currently available for free.
4 Year Trip is an incredibly useful app for anyone contemplating going to college.
It was created with the sole purpose of aiding students in locating colleges that might be a good match for them.
Students can choose to search for universities by focusing on specific majors/programs offered through the schools or by the location of the school. 4 Year Trip also includes a list of all nearby colleges, based on the location of your iOS device.
These lists include information linking you directly to the university’s website; these websites can be opened directly within the app, without any need for an outside app source.
An especially nice feature is that 4 Year Trip can also be used to create your list of dream colleges, locate upcoming college fairs in your area, and be notified about potential scholarships for you.
To make the college search process more enjoyable, this app provides opportunities to win prizes directly through it as well.
As a whole, 4 Year Trip offers excellent features that high school college and career advisors should definitely inform their students about.
It’s an easy to use app that can make the college search process much easier and less stressful.
Appearance and Layout:
With an attractive, trendy icon, 4 Year Trip is already visually appealing to its target audience. The in-app layout makes for a very streamlined approach, with each feature conveniently sectioned off into its own subsection.
Creating your own personalized college dream list is easy to do, and getting around the app takes no time at all to figure out.
All in-app graphics are clean and simple, leaving the screen as uncluttered as possible.
Overall, even though the material presented in this app is mostly just text-based, the appearance of 4 Year Trip is still commendable.
For the high school student looking for a bit more guidance on how to start off his/her college search, 4 Year Trip is a great free app to add to his/her collection.
The college application process is arguably not very enjoyable, but this app at least makes the college search a bit more fun.
Since it’s offered for free, 4 Year Trip is definitely of great value to its target audience.
While it certainly won’t be an app that you’ll need for years to come, 4 Year Trip is still a great app for its set purpose.
4 Year Trip requires iOS 6.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
