Due to its importance, the dictionary app has to take the number one spot on our list of must-have apps for students. It is crucial for every student to own a dictionary.

Technology has made it possible for you to carry even a consise, digital dictionary in your smartphones and gadgets. So, there is no excuse for any sane student not to, at least, install one of mobile dictionary apps scattered across the web.

2. The Kindle reading app

The world is embracing the use of eBooks and eReaders at an alarming pace these days, which has led to a massive decline in the demand for paper books. EBooks are the current norm these days and require specially designed gadget known as eReaders to properly access their content. Since some smartphones and tablets may not possess the Kindle or eBook reading functionality, the Kindle reading app was created to help replicate the features of the standard eBook reader.

3. DropBox

The DropBox is a cloud-based storage service that allows you to upload, store and manage digital files such as eBooks, pictures, videos, and documents. The uploaded files can be accessed anywhere on planet earth, provided you have an internet connection within reach. Effectively utilizing the DropBox app can save you the stress of carrying those bulky reading materials around, especially during trips.

4. GoConqr

Then you need the right app that can grant you instant access to over 1.5 million learning resources scattered across the web. Students and researchers alike would find the GoConqr mobile app, which is available on the iOS and Android platform, a worthy digital companion.

Many don’t come from privileged homes and can’t really afford to buy expensive textbooks prepared and sold by greedy lecturers. The Camscanner comes in handy and offers a cheaper alternative than standard scanners. It uses your smartphone’s built-in camera functionality to scan your important documents and notes.

9. LectureNotes

Yes, as the name implies, the LectureNote app is particularly useful for gadget owners whose devices make use of “the Stylus.” Using the LectureNote, you can take down important notes quickly and speedily with your stylus. This app comes in handy for people who dread carrying bulky lecture notes up and down.

10. Todoist

The Todoist app lets you plan all your daily activities in advance, so at every given time, you know what you are expected to do. This amazing app is particularly useful for keeping regular appointments and schedules.

As students, you should continue to research and test other apps that can be used to solve problematic areas of your academic endeavor. Educative mobile apps will help you overcome impediments that act as cog in the wheel of your academic pursuit, thereby equipping you with the right analytical skills to confront modern-day challenges.
