Study apps make my life a billion-gazillion times easier! I used to work full time & juggle 6 classes, without apps to help me out, I probably would’ve lost my mind. These are my favorite apps to keep me sane in my insanely busy times!

1. Evernote

– Evernote is an amazing way to take notes across all devices! You can create lists, graphs, sketches, and collect screenshots.

-Evernote has a free plan with access to all the basic features, but the Plus plan with more features & uploads is only $34,99/year! Totally worth it for the school year. You can easily connect your Evernote to your Google drive which is another amazing feature!

2. Paper by 53

-Paper is the app I use to take notes on my iPad and I absolutely love it! Unlike Evernote, it is much better for taking quick notes or doing a quick sketch. The app is free, which is amazing because it has such great features!

-Paper helps me be so much more productive and organized, you can organize your notes into notebooks based on topics.

-Paper is great if you’re a very visual person, you can quickly combine, notes, photos, and sketches!

3. Wunderlist

-This is my number one app for productivity! It helps me keep track of all my to-dos. You can create multiple lists, set notifications, and even share those lists with other people.

-It’s perfect for group projects, so you can see what everyone has worked on! There’s also a chat aspect to the app, making group to-do lists even better! Also, the app is just beautiful! I just love the aesthetic!

4. Mint

-Mint is a great way to keep track of your money & create budgets! You can track your bills, get alerts, and create multiple budgets.

-You can connect it to all your bank accounts in order to see each transaction you make. Plus the app is completely free! If you’re someone who struggles which managing your finances, get this app!

5. AnkiApp

-The AnkiApp takes just studying flashcards to another level. The Anki method uses a unique algorithm to help you learn the notecards even better.

-I use this app for studying my Spanish vocab & I’m obsessed. You can custom make your own flashcards with images, text, and sound or you can even download the premade sets.

-After each study session, you can see your progress. If you’re taking a language, I highly recommend using the AnkiApp!

6. Duolingo

-Duolingo is the app for learning languages!

-I love using it in conjunction with language classes to improve my vocab & practice what I’ve learned. A lot of teachers recommend the app & it’s great if you just want to learn a language for fun!

7. EasyBib

-While doing some research for this post I found out that EasyBib has an app!

-I love using it for essays, but the app makes it ten times easier to create citations. On the app, you can scan book barcodes, manually edit citations, and cite websites.

-I am so excited to start using this app, it’s going to make my life so much easier!

8. Venmo

-Venmo is essential for college students! It makes it so much easier to send money to your friends. Great if you go out for a group dinner and split the check, or you forget your wallet & need your friend to pay. Just trust me, Venmo will save your life!

9. Focus Keeper

-Focus keeper is a great work & study timer! It utilizes the Pomodoro technique.

-You choose a task and set the timer for 25 minutes and focus solely on the task for those minutes, then you’ll get a 5-minute break. After you’ve completed 4 focus sessions you get a longer break for 25-30 minutes. You can also track your productivity & create custom goals!

10. LiveSafe

-Safety should always be one of your top priorities. This app has multiple ways to report an incident through text, anonymously, and attach photos + videos.

-The most well-known feature is SafeWalk which enables a GPS feature to help friends and family to keep an eye on where you are. This is great if you have to walk back to your car late at night, or if you’re scared at all!

College is difficult use all the tools you can to make it easier!

    Gorgeous blog you have launched! I just saw your tweet on Twitter about it. I’ll definitely be checking out Mint (cute app name too aha!) My financing and budgeting needs a little more organisation.

      Me too! I just recently downloaded the app (but I’m lazy & haven’t 100% set it up) I’m hoping I’ll magically be super responsible with my money now!!
