Nutrition Resources: Tools & Apps

Nutrition Resources and Web Sites for Austin Community College Students

What Are Apps?

Apps (little software applications)​ are available for either android or Apple devices and​ allow you to customize your tablet to do the things you like to do. Some of the apps listed are free, while others are fee-based. Additionally, some apps are initially free, and then require in-app purchases if more features and functionality are desired. ​Here are some app recommendations that may be useful to you as you complete your classes. 

ACC Library Services is ​not ​ liable for reimbursement of any app​ purchases made by patrons. Please refer to the Tablet Circulation Policy for further details.
