So, you’ve got all the basics on your phone:
WhatsApp (For keeping in touch with friends and getting prayer broadcasts from your mom)
Instagram (For stalking your ex from 2014 and checking out your favourite comedian’s page)
Twitter (For getting into online debates to make up for that one time you flunked at debate in primary school)
Facebook (For knowing Tolu from secondary’s school birthday)
YouTube (For watching videos for two hours after you buy new data)
Random dating app (For boring weekend chats with someone halfway across the country that might low-key be a yahoo boy)
Not so bad, Now here are five apps you need on your phone to make life even better:
- Education Apps:
Your phone’s app store has a plethora of apps where you can learn a new skill or polish existing ones. On platforms like Coursera, you can even take professional courses and earn certifications once you’ve passed.
Moreover, you can learn new languages whenever you have a spare hour or two and enroll in classes for alternative career options as well. There are both free and paid platforms available such as Udemy, Khan Academy, Duolingo, and more.
Do you often forget the date and time of your tests ? Do you always know the deadline of assignment submission, the time of your next lecture, and the subject of your next class? Thanks to Studious, this problem will be solved once and forever. All you need to do is to enter all information about your class, time, professor, location, etc., and this cool application will remind you about it just in time! Just remember to keep your phone charged!
3. Lecture Capture Apps:
The voice recorder on your phone might not effectively capture a clear audio of a lecture, especially in a large auditorium but lecture capture apps do a good job of capturing lectures. One of such is SoundNote (iOS) , a popular lecture capture app for iPad users, acting as a notepad and audio recorder, so you can store an entire lecture in both visual and audio form. If it’s a whiteboard you want to capture, however, Office Lens allows users to photograph a whiteboard, convert it to a PDF, Word or PowerPoint file and store all the data via OneNote or OneDrive for catch-up and revision purposes.
4. Mathway App:
If you struggled with math as much as I did back in the school days, this is your app. This app is also useful for maths geniuses. Mathway app will guide you step-by-step while you search for algebra, geometry, or any other math solution. Enter your task into the application, and check if your solution is the same with one offered.
Brainly is the largest social network for studying in a group. The app is a student-focused question and answer platform where you can pick strangers’ brains to solve your assignments and projects. The process for submitting a new post is quite straightforward, although chances are someone has already asked the same question thanks to Brainly’s active audience.
Also, there’s an extensive search option if you’d like to look up particular queries. You can even chat with individual users to discuss a topic further or befriend them for later.
