The Best Apps for Studying

These apps will get you an A+

Books and binders may be the old-school way to study, but in today's high-tech world, it's all about the digital flashcards. For students who need to step up their study game, these apps are aimed to assist. If you download them, and can stay off Instagram and ignore incoming texts, your smartphone may be more useful to you than heading to the library.


Quizlet Flashcards

Back in the day, students used index cards to help them remember facts and figures. But why deal with the bulk (and the paper-cuts) when Quizlet Flashcards are as convenient as it gets? Great for memorizing vocabulary words, learning languages, and more, you can create your own online cards or find a batch already assembled by another savvy Quizlet user. Race against the clock for speed studying or form a study group with schoolmates.

My Study Life

My Study Life

Being a student means spending (lots of) time studying. With the My Study Life app, staying organized is made simpler – tasks, assignments, study guides, and exam dates/times are all stored in one convenient place, taking the chaos out of classwork. Create to-do lists, set reminders, sync to the cloud, and become the put-together student you always knew you could be.

MyScript Calculator

Math students can't always rely on a traditional calculator in the classroom, especially come exam time. Writing out formulas and executing equations is still a pencil-on-paper process. MyScript Calculator gives the feeling of figuring out mathematical computations by hand, but the app processes the "penmanship" and converts it into digital text. You'll master your math quiz by practicing as you would on paper, taken up a notch with the assistance of the MyScript Calculator app.
