TOP most useful apps for any student

TOP most useful apps for any student

We have made a selection of interesting and necessary applications that will be useful to every student. You will learn where it is safest to store your educational work, communicate with teachers and fellow students. The selection will facilitate the life of the student and make it even more comfortable and interesting!


Dropbox – file storage, the so-called cloud. This service can be used for free, and for each invited friend you can get 500 MB.  Maximum file storage can be expanded to 16 GB. 

For storing educational materials, audio files, lectures, coursework, the size of the cloud is quite enough. Documents can be viewed from any device, be it a phone or laptop. Another interesting feature is that you can automatically upload screenshots to the cloud. Deleted files remain in the cloud for 30 days, after which they are deleted permanently. 

Google Docs 

Google docs have long been a regular use for many students. The document can be edited and commented on jointly with other users, you can restore the source or intermediate files.

Students can record lectures in Google Docs, noting the main points there, leave notes, do homework or write the structure of term papers and diplomas. Files are stored in the cloud storage Google Drive: the necessary documents will not disappear anywhere, and you can safely save all the necessary information.

Evernote Cloud

Another very useful repository is Evernote. The cloud synchronizes all your documents (pictures, text, audio, video) with your personal account. At any time, from anywhere in the world, you can log in to your profile and view the files you need. In the documents, you can prescribe additional tasks and comment.

Also in the repository you can keep your own list of to-do and tasks, put the necessary notifications. Try using this application - we are sure you will go.


The Slack application is a convenient platform for communicating with fellow students, a kind of messenger where everyone can exchange their opinions, help with tasks, send documents. You can communicate as a message, video call, and voice. Also in the application there are special features that will make the work in the application comfortable for everyone. For example, you can set up keyboard shortcuts or connect commands for quick navigation. We advise you to turn off unnecessary notifications so that they do not distract you from your studies.

ABBYY FineReader

If you suddenly need an article, book or dissertation, and there is it only in the library, then you no longer need to sit for several hours and reprint the entire book. 

Appas are paid, but the quality of execution is worth it. To work on a laptop or computer, you will need scans of documents. The application recognizes the jpg, bmp, png formats, then processes them and gives you the finished file in the format you need (doc, xls, pdf). Received documents can be edited and printed.

The camera of the phone will serve as a replacement for the scanner in the mobile version of the application. The developers recommend using a camera of more than 5 megapixels, it is then that the results of the work will be of high quality.

RealCalc Calculator

For difficult calculations, you can use the scientific calculator RealCalc. It will help to solve quite serious calculations. With it, you can solve problems in higher mathematics, difficult equations for a given formula or find a percentage of a number. The device is also equipped with many other useful features.

The domain was registered in 1995. App will give an answer to any question in a few seconds - so promise the creators. The application contains about 2 million definitions, antonyms and synonyms on numerous topics and is constantly updated.


We are sure that many users of PCs and smartphones are familiar with such an application as Skype. Over the past few years, the application has expanded its capabilities. It all started with sales managers and linguists who found potential customers through Skype and taught them foreign languages remotely. After that, the platform began to be adjusted to tutors in all subjects who were ready to prepare for exams for money or explain any topic to a student. 

To date, in Skype you can get such professions as a programmer, make-up artist, graphic designer, astrologer, targetologist, etc. 

But despite the monetization of appa, you can still chat with fellow students or listen to lectures while sitting at home.


Lingualeo is an affective language learning service. You can learn both standard English and, for example, Chinese, Greek, Norwegian and other languages of the world.

Having chosen the desired language, the user every day will receive interesting tasks for memorizing words and phrases, learn grammar and rules of the desired language.

You can also create your own individual lesson plan, which is updated and selected depending on the level of the student and his requests. You can use Lingualeo both on your smartphone and on your computer.
