A student’s academic experience is highly significant, so one must put every effort to maintain focus and accomplish the work required
Technology is often seen as a distraction for students in today’s time but if used efficiently it can be beneficial in the long run

Productivity is less about what you do with your time. And more about how you run your mind ~Robin Sharma

Without a doubt, there are more distractions for students now than there have ever been. It's understandable that it can be challenging to maintain concentration when distractions like social media, Netflix, and games are so easy to access. And it is absolutely no surprise that many students struggle to manage their time and stay focused on their studies.

But the other side of the coin is also that technology is rapidly becoming an essential part of a student's life and certain apps are among the most amazing tools that technology has given to humankind. There are countless essential apps for students that not only help them study more effectively and be more productive but also keep track of their daily activities. From taking notes, finding information, making calendars to managing finances, and being physically and mentally fit - you name it and you get an app for it.


From among the countless productivity apps, we present a list of the top 4 must-have apps for every student.

1. Grammarly

Every writer strives to become better. And why only in writing, even in communication, we want to use the best grammar. Using a writing tool like Grammarly makes it a lot simpler for one to write their best.

It has a variety of features that make learning while writing possible. It first checks the original content for mistakes such as grammar, punctuation, and spelling, underlining them neatly with different coloured lines. Thereafter, it provides AI-assisted solutions that are more responsive and relevant, as opposed to more conventional editing tools like the one included with Microsoft Word.

Grammarly allows students to edit their essays and other projects on the go. It also has a great system of analysing writing and scoring it on various parameters, including the tonality of the writing, which updates as you change the writing. All these features make it a must-have tool for any student.

2. EverNote

EverNote has a ton of features that make it one of the must-have apps for students, the Notebook feature being, without a doubt, the most important. One can make as many Notebooks as one needs. Anything one can think of can be added, including text notes, audio clips, photographs, PDF files, scanned handwritten pages, Slack discussions, emails, web pages, and more.

Allowing you to collate all the data and organise it in one secure location makes Evernote every student’s best buddy. And what’s more, all these features are available in the free version as well!

3. Forest

Now let’s look at an app that makes you more focused and environment-friendly at the same time! To assist you with maintaining focus, this app uses an innovative approach. You plant a tree in your virtual "forest" whenever you wish to begin a study session.

The tree grows as you work, and will die if you pick up your phone and exit the app. The more you study, the more trees you add to your forest - giving your study schedule a goal-based approach. And how does this make your environment friendly? The Forest App team has a tie-up with Trees for the Future, a tree-planting organisation. As you grow your ‘forest’ you can earn ‘coins’ and when you donate these, the partner organisation goes on to plant a tree for you somewhere in the world!

4. Todoist

The time management tool Todoist is for people who believe in making schedules and want to stay organised. With its many task-keeping features, this software seamlessly blends simplicity and effectiveness. Creating reminders, establishing multiple priorities for your tasks, and building distinct to-do lists under distinct projects - are just some of the things the app helps you with.

For many students, staying on top of their schedule, particularly where there are multiple topics to study and other chores to complete, can sometimes lead to confusion, but with Todoist, you will have your personal reminder system keeping track and reminding you every time!

As we said at the start, technology can be both a bane and a boon. And at this crucial juncture in your life as a student - these are 4 major apps that will surely help you make the most of technology. After all, which is better - your phone reminding you to get off Netflix and back to your books or your mother? You be the judge here!
