10 life saving apps for students

Get the right Apps or get lost.

Going abroad or getting into University is quite an experience by itself. Thankfully nowadays we have lots of ways to help us cope with new challenges and environments. With simple and useless games or literally life-saving programs, apps have been changing our lives.

Here are our top 10 Apps for students.

1. Spotify

Spotify top app for students
“Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.” – Plato

This quote makes this whole blogpost a lot more intelligent but what are we without music? For that reason: Plato, you were right!

We doubt you don’t know Spotify by now, but if for any reason you don’t: Spotify is a simple platform you can use to listen to music on your smartphone or desktop. It uses internet connection to browse an endless database of music and you can use it for free. The premium account  allows you to listen to it offline and skipping the “so boring” ads.

2. Zomato

Zomato top app for students
“There is no sincerer love than the love of food.” – George Bernard Shaw

When the almighty Irish playwright and LSE co-founder, Mr. Shaw expressed his feelings about food in general, he called it true love. Zomato suffers from the same unconditional love. They’re present in 20 different countries and in more than 130 cities. Zomato is great for two main reasons:

  1. It makes it easier to find new places to eat and therefore to live and experience more of your city;

  2. You can now stop eating the same boring steak at your usual restaurant.

You can download the App for free and enter a whole foodie network, comment, review and share your favourite foodie spots.

3. Whatsapp

Whatsapp best app for students
“I feel that if a person has problems communicating the very least he can do is to shut up.” – Tom Lehrer

Tom?! Come on, behave yourself… What Tom meant is that communicating is essential for a balanced social life. We also know that money is essential for a balanced life and so, God created Whatsapp. The best App for mobile communication we can recall (except when you end-up in a group conversation full of noisy people chatting about a bunch of nonsense while you’re trying to study). Whatsapp makes it possible to talk to your friends back home or your friends 2 meters away using only internet connection instead of the regular operator phone network.

This means that, as long as you get the WiFi password you can talk for free all the time! Isn’t that great? You can also make groups, share photos, videos, sound clips and… EMOJI!!!

4. EverNote

“We all do ‘do, re, mi,’ but you have got to find the other notes yourself.” – Louis Armstrong

Let’s rely on EverNote for that, Louis. EverNote organizes all your notes and there is nothing you need to find. Get your life in order with an App with an awesome interface on desktop version too.

Studying should lead to some caos (not sure if you noticed that already but…) EverNote is a great wingman, Study-wise. EverNote is a software developed by one of the most innovative companies out there and it has lots of different inputs and outputs and gadget ready to synchronize with it.

5. DropBox Mobile

“There’s no better feeling in the world than a warm pizza box on your lap.”- Kevin James

Sorry about that one Kev, it’s even better to have a box with all your stuff in your pocket (as long as you’re not that hungry). DropBox Mobile is as handy as the desktop version except that it has all its functionalities adapted for mobile devices. You can store, share and manage your “digital” belongings and make sure you keep your stuff under control. Once more, this is a free app, having premium account options for additional storage space. Nevertheless, it’s way larger than a pizza box.

6. Khan Academy

“The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination.” – Albert Einstein

We’ve been waiting for this day for decades. Albert, listen closely: The true sign of intelligence is knowledge. Khan Academy gives you free access to interactive exercises on various subjects and helps you keep sharp and smart. It’s as wide as you can imagine it: it covers everything from “kindergarten to calculus” and tries to make boring things less boring with a gamification logic blended in.

There’s no better way to learn than to learn when you’re not expecting.

Note: we agree with Einstein although we really needed to make our point on this one.
Also: No, that man is not Albert Einstein. We know this. He is the educator Salman Khan, the teacher, entrepreneur and visionary who founded the Khan Academy.

7. Math Alarm Clock

alarm clock reccommended apps for students
“Morning comes whether you set the alarm or not.” – Ursula K. Le Guin

You can set it on and all but if you know nothing about Maths you will have a hard time setting it off. This App is the perfect bittersweet App. It definitely works but it’s going to expect a lot from you. You can set the Maths level but the key point here is that you will most likely wake up if you’re forced to make an intellectual effort. When the alarm goes off you have to answer a Maths question in order to turn it off. It will do two things for you:

  1. successfully wake you up (quite a challenge sometimes…);

  2. improve your maths skills!

The perfect student App we figured.

8. Dictionary.com

dictionary apps for students
“Impossible is a word to be found only in the dictionary of fools.” – Napoleon Bonaparte

Both on the dictionary of the fools and on this one! The Dictionary.com App allows you to search words with no internet use and is a great tool to make things clear when you’re having second thoughts about a specific word. It will help you with your writing and reading but also with your content creation. The key to write and read well is to know the waters you’re sailing in. It doesn’t mean you have to know the dictionary by heart or to read it like a nice cosy novel but you should definitely use it when you have any doubts.

9. Pocket

Pocket apps for students
“I shouldn’t be near Vegas and have money in my pocket.” – Adam Sandler

“I shouldn’t be near Vegas and have money in my pocket.” – Adam Sandler

Good to know Adam, then this App is for you: this Pocket is used to store content and your stack of articles, websites and stuff you wish to read later on the internet. You can walk with your Pocket full in Vegas and not regret it. Amazing huh?

Pocket is a plugin for your browser that will make it easier to keep track of the stuff you wish to check later on. It’s great to manage that same content and to make sure you find it the next day (even if you lose track of time in Vegas).

10. Hemingway

Hemingway app for student
“Every-body gets a Hemingway!” – Oprah

The best and creepiest way to describe the Hemingway App is: Imagine Hemingway himself stuck in a server somewhere.

This simple App works based on Hemingway’s writing. It helps writers and comments on their texts. From over complicated sentences, passive voice or grammar mistakes it covers all fields. It’s an awesome tool to check if your essays and assignments are written concisely and in good English.

Fun fact: we pasted one of the most famous Hemingway’s paragraphs and it actually told us it was too confusing.
