The Best Apps to Help You Study

Exams, assignments, coursework, extra reading – all part of the University study experience. It can be hard to keep on top of all the notes and work you have to do! Take a look at the list we’ve created below that will help you.

You can do it!

The Oxford Dictionary

So you’re in your lecture, and the Professor says a word you don’t understand. The Oxford Dictionary app lets you quickly search for the elusive word with an easy to understand definition. No matter what subject you’re studying, this is a must have app. If you can’t find a word in there then your lecturer is making them up…which happens quite often actually.


Yes, we know that you use the copy and paste buttons more than you should when writing class essays. JumpCut gives you access to text you’ve copied and pasted before, even if you copied new text to your clipboard since then. This is a handy time saver and is ideal for students with a deadline coming up!


ExamTime allows you to create online brainstorms, Flashcards, Online Notes and Quizzes. All of these online study tools are designed to help you improve your learning and prepare for exams. Never before has it been easier to create your online study resources and share them with your classmates. Plus all your notes are stored in one place.


Short term memory? Studious reminds you when homework and tests are due and even silences your phone for you during lectures and classes. Just enter your lecture information such as date, time, location and professor name and Studious takes care of the rest. You can also save notes and photos and the app’s colourful, easy-to-use interface makes everything seem so much better 😉

Evernote & Evernote Peek

We all know the amazing-ness of Evernote. Notemaking, screenshotting, easy to navigate around help. Evernote Peek helps you prepare for upcoming quizzes with flair. With this well-designed app you can take notes–whether scribbled, spoken or drawn–and quickly turn them into study notes. You can also make use of your iPad’s Smart Cover to quiz yourself.

Science Glossary

Science Glossary is exactly what its name suggests: an index of the most commonly encountered terms and names in Science. This app is sort of like a Wikipedia for Science, as you’ll also find an explanation and some history on the entry. Don’t feel like searching? You can always use the app’s modules to learn more on your own time


You’ve finally finished that ten-page essay; now comes the really frustrating part – creating a list of citations in perfect compliance with what your University requests. Take the pain out of the process with EasyBib, which lets you snap pictures of a book’s barcode or search for a title and generates an accurately-styled citation that you can copy and paste into your bibliography.


Cold Turkey will temporarily block you off of social media sites, addicting websites, games and even programs! Imagine how fast you could do your work without all those distractions!

Have you left your calculator at home? How can you solve all those tricky equations and cube roots now? RealCalc Scientific Calculator is the answer. This app is perfect for students who need all the functionality of a scientific calculator. This student app is ideal for mathematical or scientific problems so if this is your area, then this is the app for you!
