    Grammarly

    Clear, effective, mistake-free writing.

    Writing a good essay or coursework just got so much easier with Grammarly. The spell- and grammar checks are handy and if you have an important piece of writing, you might even consider upgrading to Premium to get vocabulary suggestions and improve your overall writing. Personally, I am never handing in a coursework again without running a Grammarly-check beforehand. Highly recommended to all students.

    I don't know any other product in the market that does what Grammarly does. Combined with Hemingway App, this has been my 1-2 combo for well-written emails, reports & fiction. (I wrote this, and then I checked it with Grammarly).

    Evernote

    Note taking gets even simpler

    Despite its flaws, Evernote is still one of the better note apps out there.

    Evernote was my "go to" app when I was in both college and law school; it can handle everything thrown its way! Moreover, it goes everywhere you do, so your notes are always at hand.

  5. Think it might help students. You save all that you need in one place and you may read it later even if you're offline.

  6. When I was in college, I used Zip Disks to transfer my files between home and school. *shakes cane* Dropbox is useful for storing, and ensuring safe storage especially, of important working files, class syllabus, and anything else important to a student.

    Great studying tool. Tons of flashcards already created based on specific classes, schools. Why reinvent the wheel when most likely the flashcards have already been created by another student that had the class before. Allows users to create and share flashcards.

    I completely agree! It's fantastic and I love that you can choose several methods for quizzes (multiple choice, fill in the blanks, etc.) which is perfect when reading/studying and quizzing yourself every few minutes to see if you retained the material.

    In my opinion, the 'must-have' app should be a combination of several apps that helps with time-management and productivity, while also being functional. I'd recommend checking out NoteLedge for those students who want to take good notes, keep them organized by subject and use them for self-study. NoteLedge helped me, personally, during my senior year at high-school. I was using the app almost every day for taking both handwritten and audio notes, project brainstorming, creating presentations and making cheat-sheets for tests. I feel like with NoteLedge I was able to stay on top of my to-do list for the week and memorize things better overall. Good notes are highly important, and for me NoteLedge was an optimal solution.

    I used this app when I was at school - mainly for taking notes during lectures for self-study, saving articles for references and gathering a personal knowledge library. I think this app would be a good solution to students both at high school and at universities.

    I like NoteLedge, particularly for taking extensive and complex notes with graphs, videos, voice notes and sketches. It's definitely a good choice for students who're working on large and difficult projects or want their notes to be top-notch for studying on their own.

    Notability

    Powerful cross-platform note-taking platform

    Notability is a pretty powerful notes app, especially for those who prefer or have a need to have handwritten aspects to their note taking. Useful for including hand drawn charts and tables and other things.

    Hemingway teaches you to write clear sentences. It's not what you may need all the time; maybe only 95% of the time.

    PomoDoneApp for Mac, Windows, Linux & Android

    Pomodoro timer for your productivity tool

    We all know what the Pomodoro Technique is and how good it is for the learning. Why I think the PomoDone is a "must have" app? 1. Integrations: whatever you use for your workflow, Evernote, Trello, Todoist, Wunderlist, Nozbe, Google Tasks, GCalendar - keep using it! Connect the account to the PomoDone App, sync the projects, lists or notebooks, and you're all set. Pick the task, run the countdown timer and focus on the task execution. Favorite your recurrent tasks from different sources, if you need some quick way to access it. 2. Distractions & Interruptions shield: turn on website blocking in PomoDone Chrome Extension options, and while the timer is running, your Facebook, Twitter or YouTube will remind you about the task on your desk instead of letting you slip out to the endless browsing and procrastination. If you use Slack, configure PomoDone/Slack integration to notify your team what you're on, and turn on DND mode to silence it up while you're getting things done. 3. Analysis: as long as it's all about the time, get the bigger picture what tasks, assignments, papers you spend the time on using the PomoDone Log. Export it, filter it out, and use it to report, invoice, analyze and enjoy how great you are. I use it for my workflow, for learning, and even home errands.

    Things 3.0

    Complete revamp of the original, award-winning task manager

    Justin MabeeSquarespace Specialist. Philadelphia. · Written
    While it took a long time for Things 3 to get released, I wouldn't trust my tasks or to-do lists to anyone else. I tried several other list apps and nothing syncs or stays consistent the way Things does. It's a little pricey for students, but it's worth it. My university actually paid for Things 2 for me, so I got all the updates throughout 4 years of college.
