    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).

      When you use grammarly, they put some kind of advert for youtube, so when you watch youtube videos, it will stop and their advert will start. Note, this is not a youtube ad, this is an ad directly from them.

      The browser extension is a must have, but I regularly pass my emails through this, or draft them in it just to catch dumb mistakes and make noticeable grammar improvements on the fly

    Note taking gets even simpler

    Despite its flaws, Evernote is still one of the better note apps out there.
    Travis MartinCo-Founder at Shopholic · Written
    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.

    This is one of the most underrated app
    • Emily Kellerttech lover & travel freak

      Absolutely love Evernote. Use it for work and personal use and that is easy with the ability to make notebooks. Tags are super helpful as is annotating a document or editing a picture with Skitch. Makes my life easier and more organized!

    A floating browser window for your Mac

    Now you can float a tiny Netflix window above your notes in class. Perfect for those lectures that just can't seem to end.

    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.

    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.

    Organize your life. Then go enjoy it.

    Great way to get an overview about your tasks.

    Once Wunderlist is gone (R.I.P.), this will be the app to use for to-do lists.
    • haabeDeveloper @ Snopp Designbyrå

      We were looking for a tool to replace Asana, and after initially testing Todoist, became certain it could be the tool for us. But sharing projects is a PITA. There's no easy way to let your team have access to all newly created projects. Also, the projects structure isn't shared, so sharing a new subproject causes havoc in the teammate's projects structure, and the teammate needs to manually configure the projects structure according to it's intended layout.

    • MartaFront-end, UI and UX designer

      Organize your life with pleasure. Add due date to tasks, tasks inside projects, subprojects and subtasks. Call your friends to join your project and assign tasks for them. Comment and add images on tasks. Have your tasks everywhere with nice apps. Love it.

    Easily scan paper hand-outs and transform it to PDF with searchable text. You can also annotate on documents in the app. A very much have utility app for students.

    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.
    o1xhackcs Student, iOS Developer · Written
    Best app especially you have iPad, Apple pencil. And now it scans all writing to word to search. So powerful when you audio while writing. and then when you listen, the writing track is displaying

    Hemingway Editor 3.0

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

    sam3Assistant 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.

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

      Simple, unambiguous, clutter-free writing made easy for anyone. Hemingway is a godsend for people like me that, completely unintentionally, wax poetic about stuff that can be said in a few words.

    • Cornelius H DoGraduate @ CommBank

      I started using Hemingway from it's first iteration. First for my uni assignments and since then I've used it for almost everything. Slide decks, presentations, social posts, campaign copy, you name it. I even used it for this review! haha

    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.
    • Chad WhitakerProduct Designer at Product Hunt 👋

      I've been a Things user since 2007. Within the last couple of years Things 2.0 started to feel stale, and I found myself exploring other alternatives. Yet I could never end up replacing it.

      Thankfully, Things 3.0 comes out of nowhere with a completely redesigned experience that is fast, beautiful and it allows you to do everything with speed — the perfect recipe for a todo app.

      This app feels like it belongs on iOS 11 even though it was launched weeks before the iOS 11 beta was announced. It's that good!

      You still can't share tasks with others, but the great experience easily out weights that need.

    • Brett GarwoodOwner, Red BAG Media

      Absolutely love Things, and utilize it as my go-to for managing all my tasks personally and professionally. Only issue I have revolve around collaboration features. Would love to fully merge all task management into Things, but cannot do this with collaboration features (sharing, commenting, attachments, etc.)
