My Top Five Study Apps

     School has definitely been a humongous challenge for me these days, and it is nothing compared to my previous years. I'm in the cream section, and coping up with my brilliantly smart know-it-all (AND SLIGHTLY ANNOYING) classmates. Nevertheless, being in the cream section was quite a big adjustment and change for me because I was so used to being classmates with people who were quite different. Now, in the cream section, everyone in group works help. The class president doesn't have to say a thousand words just for everyone to listen. And everyone is so friendly. They're all so open, unlike my other school years where you'd seriously see a son of Hades. I'm thankful for this, and I want to keep up my high grades. To help me with that, I have various study apps to maintain my high grades or manage my time. Without further ado, here is my list of top five study apps.

1. Quizlet 
      This is the best app I've ever seen so far, and is truly effective as long as you have enough time for using on your phone. Quizlet lets you create your own study materials, or search for study materials online so that you won't ever have a hard time reviewing for those nasty midterms. It also lets you connect with your teachers, classmates, or class if your school is connected or aware of Quizlet. 
       It offers different review options such as Cards (where you write a question or term in front, and tap it for the answer or definition), learn (which asks different questions from your created/added (reviewer from another user) reviewer, and you'll have to answer each question), match (basically is like the traditional matching cards game. You'll have to match each term to its definition), and lastly, test (which asks questions in the form of multiple choices, true or false, etc.) 



Overall, I'd say that Quizlet is a 5/5 app, which I strongly recommend everyone to get.

2. myHomework Student Planner
     If you're horrible with time management and submitting homework, this is definitely the app for you. myHomework keeps track of all your requirements -- wether you need to study for a quiz or pass that paper about atoms, myHomework does it all. This amazing app asks for your homework's due date, it will give reminders and alerts depending on your preference, and even sorts out its priority. Total coolness! (not! lol xD)

 

     This app helps a lot, although it takes quite a lot of time entering your homework to the app, so I suggest making sure that you really do have time. It helps a lot, and it won't letcha down.

3. PhotoMath
      If you're more with the words and less with the numbers like me, I promise that this will help! PhotoMath is something like a scientific calculator, but actually gives you a solution for each math problem you give! It can solve hand written problems, simply point your camera at it and then the magic will begin. It also gives you step by step procedures, so you'll never again be lost with all those nose bleeding integers. It can solve simple numbers to fractions, to square roots.

4. Focus Zen
      Music and specific sounds are actually scientifically proven to enhance memory, increase concentration, or process more complicated stimuli easier than before. Focus Zen offers music and sounds just for that! You can easily get your earphones and listen to the music in Focus Zen while studying and doing your homework.

5. Duolingo
      I recommend this to all people wishing to learn a new language! It is the best learning app for learning new languages. It offers lessons in so many languages, and quizzes you as each lesson goes. You'll start with the basics, such as phrases, food, animals, and plurals, until you reach the difficult parts. It also tracks your lessons, and awards you with some digital coins called "lingots", which you can use to unlock various things like a new theme or a free one day break. After finishing your lessons, you'll be a bilingual master! 




     Duolingo offers lessons in English, Arabic, Czech, Dutch, French, German, Greek, Hindi, Hungarian, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portugese, Romanian, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Spanish, Traditional Chinese, Turkish, Ukrainian, and Vietnamese.
