Duolingo is the highest rated language learning app in the world with winning awards such as the Index 2015 award, and the “App of the Year” award in 2013. With 23 languages as of 2017, it teaches you how to read and write, speak, and understand in other languages. I’ve been using the French classes for months now, and it’s effective in drilling the language into your brain. You learn vocabulary in the study, and then daily practices.
Pocket Schedule is essentially a virtual planner in your device. You can program your classes, teachers, locations and times to always be on track. I get extremely helpful reminders before classes start and before assignments are due. I really like this application, because I was always lazy with my planner, but this is made it easier. A simple interface to put in your assignments with reminders of due dates and notifications
Tally 2 is a great reminder application. You can track anything and even access the app from your lock screen. It’s surprising how it can break habits and help you gain better ones. When I first started using this app, I put in “doing work” instead of procrastinating. Since last year, I’ve had a great improvement on doing and turning in my assignments on time without having to rush it all at 3 a.m. This app helps a lot with tracking anything by day and time.
Liner is a utility application with the purpose of highlighting and commenting on web pages and articles. After setting up the app, in just a few taps, you can add the page to your personal archive. It allows you to edit it while still being able to keep it as a reference. This app can be extremely useful when
wanting to study, take notes, or to just save a webpage. I was skeptical of the app at first, but I was surprised to find that the app really did everything it promised.
If you have trouble understanding a problem or unit in math, Math42 will be a useful app for you. It can teach and remind you how to solve problems without directly giving you the answer. This can be can be a savior when you need to learn more math skills beyond your classes. I found this app especially helpful after I used it to get back to remembering problem-solving strategies. It was really straightforward and beneficial.
Copied is an application for saving anything you copy to your clipboard. If you’ve ever wanted to save a note, link, or phone number, use this app to archive the copied information. You hold and copy the text you want to save, then open up the Copied app, and it will automatically paste and save it for you. I’ve been using this app for a long time, and it’s one of my favorites. It’s a great resource to have as a utility when note-taking or focusing on an article.
