Top 10 Apps for Studying
During your student career you may find yourself into low performance periods, anyhow these ten apps will improve your daily studying. You will be able to work easier and more productively with these little helpers.
1. Google Translator
Performance of online translators is still a little odd. Although, the more accurate one is Google’s. A very intuitive app that cannot only translate typed text, but also voice records, text images and handwritten text. Time to time you will realize how easy is to learn some other languages.
Studying is all about organisation! Thanks to Evernote, either you or your team can create reminders, notes, tasks, voice records and so on. Always keeping you in track of what you have to do.
3. Google Drive
One of the most versatile apps out there. It can fairly be compared to Microsoft Office, but with a really nice shared connectivity by the cloud. So you and your mates can work together on a document from different places at the exact same time. Or you can use it as a way to store your work and have it with you on the go.
This app allows you to accomplish your personal objectives, by limiting the access to certain mobile apps. So you would not have to worry about being looking at social media every five minutes, or playing to that trendy game ;) It may sound cruel, but give it a try and it could change even more than just the way you study.
This one will allow you to create your own mind maps, notes, flashcards, slides and quizzes. Also you can enrich your knowledge accessing to their library resources, or joining groups with your colleagues to discuss about topics of your interest.

You can scan any document from anywhere and it will transform it to a proper PDF document. This app is not free, it costs $3.99 but when you’ll use it the first time you will realise that it’s cheap for the tight corner it just got you out of.
8. Wolfram Alpha
As a student, you like Google, right? Always here to help if you’re having trouble with an essay topic. Well, you haven't met Google's better bigger brother Wolfram Alpha then. This genius little piece of software can calculate almost everything you ask it to. It’s ridiculous. It's used by Siri when you’re talking to your phone. Just saying.

9. Sleep Time
We all know that sleep is key for making the most out of your studies, and we also know that studying at Uni won’t let you get much sleep. Sleep Time’s here to help. It analyses your sleeping cycles over couple nights and decide when is the best moment to wake you up during a 30-minutes cycle that you set up in advance. It also makes graphs of your activity during the day. For example whether you were stressed or if you had coffee too late to help you improve your sleep quality.
Imagine. You spent a whole night writing an essay which was accounting for 25% of your course's grade, and you get a third because your lecturer found out that some of your work comes from Internet and you didn't quote the authors. It wouldn't happen with Noplag. It is a software that analyses all the content you write and tells you what is considered as plagiarism.
