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