5 Best Apps for Students to Study Efficiently in 2019

Do you struggle to get good grades in your school/college exams? Does it make you doubt your abilities as a student? Well, the problem might not be in you but in your approach towards study.

Most college students still haven’t figured out an efficient way to study and get good grades in high school. They either study due to the fear of exams or deadlines given by their professors. If this sounds like you, you should consider evaluating the method that you are using to get studying done.

Another way to be efficient at studying is to use mobile apps that help you plan, look for resources, manage time, and organize the study material. These student apps do not cost much and most of them are completely free of cost.

Here are the 5 best apps for students to study efficiently in 2019

1. Wolfram Alpha

Wolfram Alpha is an Android app for math nerds who want access to all the algorithms and formulas at the tip of their fingers. It is created by Stephen Wolfram, a British-American computer scientist, physicist, and businessman.

If you have a decent internet connection, Wolfram Alpha will do all your math home that requires solving quadratic equations, geometry problems, statistics, calculus, etc. In my opinion, these things are rarely used in real-world applications. So, why waste your precious time on them.

2. SimpleMind

SimpleMind is a mind mapping app for Android phones that lets you create mind maps easily and effortlessly. According to the creator of this app(ModelMaker),  mind maps help you organize your thoughts, remember things and generate new ideas. So, during your lunch break, you can use this app to create a visual representation of the things you learned.

3. Evernote


Evernote is one of the best note-taking apps. Now you don’t have to wait till the application opens up to jot down a random thought. Evernote integrates with Android/iOS software to let you take notes from the notification section of your phone.

4. StudyBlue

StudyBlue is a free app consisting of every possible feature a student can imagine in a mobile app. The flashcard features allow millions of users to upload study materials which can be used by everyone using the app. Flashcards help you identify the notes relevant to your course/university so you don’t waste time searching for the right study material.

5. Exam Countdown Lite

Have you ever missed your exams? Over overslept on the exam day? If you are someone who always jots down the wrong exam dates(from the school/college notice board), Exam Countdown Lite will work wonders for you. It is a free app that lets you store the key exam and test dates in one place. Moreover, it also creates a dramatic effect by sending you reminders and a daily countdown until your exam arrives.


Don’t let your emotions take control over you. When a student procrastinates, makes excuses, and gets bad grades in school/college, it is a clear sign of his/her emotions taking over his/her life. Every student knows how important it is to study hard and get good grades. But some still struggle to get things done due to lack of innovative ideas and ineffective learning practices.
