5 apps to help the lost student

It can be hard to stay focused for a whole semester if you always study the same way. Habits are great but sometimes everyone needs a little habit change. I like to use apps when I need a study break or a change of perspective.

I’ve tried a lot of apps over the years. Some are great – some are not very helpful. It depends from person to person what you want the app to help you with. I’ve picked my favourites. Give them a try.

1. Elevate
Elevate is a brain function app. You play three games every day and the games change from day to day. Sometimes you have a math game training percentages, sometimes spelling, sometimes reading. Then you level up and down as you do ‘good’, ‘great’ or ‘excellent’ games.
The games are fun, in my opinion, but at the same time, they actually work. My vocabulary has grown unbelievably much since I started using Elevate back in the beginning of 2015. It is an absolutely must try!

2. Google translate
I know you might look a bit weird at this right now. But let me just say that I don’t recommend using it to translate assignments and so – I recommend using it to check spelling. Google translate can’t translate a word if it isn’t spelt right. I use it when I’m in doubt about the spelling of a word. But do me a favour and don’t translate your French assignments in Google translate.

3. Flashcards by Chegg
I use Flashcards when I need to prepare for an exam or test. It works just like physical flashcards, just on an app. You make the flashcards yourself and can have different folders for subjects.
It is a great app on the run because you can practise for your test or exam while sitting in a car or bus.

4. Quizlet
Just like Flashcards, it is a flashcard app – but as a quiz. Quizlet has a bunch of quizzes on different subjects that you can take to practise. It is more for the lazy types who don’t want to write it all down themselves but it works just as well.

5. Todolist

Todolist is an app for to-do lists. You create your own to-do lists and complete them (hopefully?). It is just like a physical to-do list but you always have it with you because it’s on your phone. I used to love it but now I prefer my to-do lists in my bullet journal.

I hope this post could help you. Thank you for stopping by!

What app is your favourite?

Stay happy, stay beautiful
