Grammarly

Clear, effective, mistake-free writing.

Frederik WallerProduct enthusiast studying in the UK. · Written
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.

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.

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.

Things 3.0

Complete revamp of the original, award-winning task manager

Justin MabeeDesigner. East Nashville. · 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.

Make your writing bold and clear, send to Medium/Wordpress

samAssistant Principal. Father of twins. · Written
Speaks for itself. Clear writing that's bold. On a side note, students who may have deficits or challenges with organization Hemingway is a blessing. Revision and editing is clean and clear helping students improve their writing.
CommentsShare
Hemingway teaches you to write clear sentences. It's not what you may need all the time; maybe only 95% of the time.

Once you verified yourself by providing some kind of confirmation of study, you can save money in many popular online shops. Definitely worth checking out if you're short on cash or just want to save money.

This is probably the most common tool which is not used well. To me the formula is simple now: Better you manage your calendars the more you can have fun!

If you need a calculator more powerful than the one that comes with your phone, but don't need graphing capabilities then PCalc is your app.
