    Forest

    Put down your phone and stay focused. Or a tree will die. 🌳😵

    One of my favorite apps and perfect for avoiding distractions when trying to study :) Set a timer for how long you cannot touch your phone. The more time you stay focused, the more coins you get to plant virtual trees in your forest (if you touch your phone, your tree dies!). The best part is that coins can eventually be used to plant real trees!

      This is amazing so for. It really keeps me going on my task t hand and let me leave my phone totally alone. The idea of growing something (for yourself) because of focussed time, is beautifully illustrated and simply a truth.

      I worked 6 hours yesterday, doing 25 minute chunks with 5-10 minutes of breaks in between. It really helped me to get something profound done.

    • (I am using Android 8.0)hi I found a hack in this app that I can use YouTube and playstore for hours but still the plant is intact and the app is running in background still I love the app and I make my 10 friend's to download the app

      Can you please add animals in the  forest and if we need to give the animals food we have to Winn the challenge.

      If we  don't give the animals food it will die

    Coinflash

    Automatically invest your spare change into cryptocurrency.

    Going to think a little outside the box here and go with Coinflash. College is a time to start saving money for your future, but you likely don't have too much to work with. Coinflash is a great way to start slowly investing in crypto with your spare change. Shout out to the maker, @louis_lapat :)

      Highly suggest using the monthly transactions so there are less fees. Also, you could only invest in BTC or ETH and that will elimant one of the $1 fees. Besides that, its interesting and automated.

    • It does not work with small transactions. Basically it does not work with this business model. Why would anyone consent to $1 fee to invest $2. It is insanely stupid.

      Edit: There is a setting that allows me to delay transfers for a month. I estimate that $30-50 could then at this point be paid in with a transaction fee of $1.99. I think this is the correct fee. I cannot confirm where I first saw it.

    This is an obvious one but I have no idea how students survived before being able to collaborate with Google Drive.

    Mike made this product
    Lanes is big with the studyblr community and has built lots of features just for them! Pomodoro timer, notes, squads (so you can compare productivity with friends) and more neat features to keep you productive. Can't promise you an A+ in your finals, but Lanes will definitely keep you focused.

    TimeBit helps to focus on current and distract less. It`s a combination of timer & to-do list & routine builder made to keep focus on what`s really matters.

  8. Mobile security is more and more important nowadays, that’s why I think no matter who you are, what you do. You will need an app to protect your phone! I am using this app called ‘AppLock’, which is amazing because it can lock all of my apps, images even videos. This app is always on my list when it comes to app recommendation. The one thing that I like the most about this app is that it can take photos of the person who’s trying to unlock your phone! This feature is really funny because I always got the intruder selfie notification from my kids. They are trying really hard to unlock my phone for video games. If you are a cautious people, you really do need one of this app.
