Top 10 Apps All Uni Students Need
With the second half of the semester approaching, many students have started to feel the stress of academic pressure.
Students already rely so much on smart phones, tablets and laptops, so why not further utilise technology to assist the studying process?
To help students stay focused and on top of their studies, NowUC has devised a list of the top 10 apps all students should have.
Any.do is the number one task manager. This app is perfect for students who love organisation. Students can create daily, monthly or yearly to-do-lists and keep track of assessment due dates, cancelled classes and exams. Best of all, it’s free!
2. Revision App
Available on iTunes, this free app allows students to be quizzed on their own notes they have made. This makes for an awesome revision tool!
If students are tired of spending what little money they have on textbooks, then this app is perfect! Chegg is a free app that allows you to rent textbooks at a more affordable price. What’s even better is that you can rent out your own textbooks as well and earn some easy cash!
Scribd is the world’s largest online library. With millions of documents and books stored, students are almost guaranteed to find what they need. You can also create your own library and sort it by what’s best for you.
EasyBib is an app that will do your citations for you. Just enter the title of the document or book and get the right citation! Students can then use this information in your bibliography. The hardest part of an essay made easy!
For students living on campus and away from family, Viber is a must have app. The app is free to download and lets you message and call other people for free, which is perfect for students wanting to keep in touch with home.
Duolingo is a great app for students learning multiple languages. It allows you to learn words and phrases, prepare for exams and complete various tasks. It is free to download and available on Apple and Android.
8. PDFMaker Lite
A handy little app to have, this app will convert any file to a PDF file.
9. The Oxford Dictionary
This is the best app for students to search the meaning of any new words they might come across when studying. It provides British and American variations, audio pronunciation and is quick and easy to use.
10. Self Control
How often do you find yourself procrastinating by scrolling through Facebook, online shopping or checking the scores from the latest sports match when you should be studying? To avoid these distractions, the Self Control app blocks certain websites for a set time frame so students can concentrate on studying. Never procrastinate again!
