This is a mix of asking about some apps that will help me through Uni, as well as ones I already have that I would like to share.

It would be awesome to get some recommendations as well, since I prefer to be organized and I don't feel very organized lately.

With that said, these are some recommendations of my own.


Hemingway Editor:
http://www.hemingwayapp.com/

You can get a desktop version for "x" amount of money. It was $6 when I got it but I think it's gone up since then. However, the site that was linked is FREE! This has helped me write great papers and cut down on my adverb usage, which is something I struggle with. If papers are your struggle, this would be the best app for you.


Grammarly:
https://app.grammarly.com/

This can be installed on your PC or used as a Chrome Extention. I have both. This will find spelling errors, comma issues, and general grammar issues in your writing. This works on TMF as well, so if you're writing something large on here, it will be able to show the errors on there. This is also FREE!


Photomath:
https://photomath.net/en/

This was a lifesaver when I was taking a math course. This is for your phone only (iOS & Android) and you can hover over a math problem and it will solve it. As well as show you the steps in order to solve the problem. This app is also FREE! However, I will say this does not like to work with other peoples handwriting. You'll do better if the problems themselves are in print.


The HW App
http://www.thehomeworkapp.com/

I think this is for iOS only (sorry Android users). While it's annoying initially to put ALLLL this info in when it comes to assignments, it pays off in the end. You're always reminded 2 days in advance about a large project thats coming up, so you don't get blindsided with assignments you completely forgot. This app is FREE! but it takes a lot of going through your syllabi to make sure to stay organized.


Cite This For Me:
http://www.citethisforme.com/us

Haven't used, but I assume this would be good to have in the future for large papers. This cites Harvard, MLA & APA!


Scholly:
https://myscholly.com/

This is for iOS & Android! While I haven't had personal success with it, it helps you apply for a multitude of scholaships around the country and its FREE! Just input your info and major and go for it!


Khan Academy:
https://www.khanacademy.org/

One of the best websites when you're struggling with any subject at all! From your Gen Ed Subjects to even College Prep, this site will help you in any of that, also FREE!



I'll update the OP if there are more recommendations. Believe me, the more organized I am, the better. As well as if there are Android users out there that have organzational apps, that would be helpful!

The 2 for 1 appetizer at the Chile's is a good cash saver for a college student.

Meh, what sucks for me is that the transportation to get there would outweigh the deal. :ray

Not sure if your college utilizes Canvas, but it's becoming extremely popular. It's basically another app that gives an overview of all your classes and assignments, but it's the best one I've personally ever used.

We're in a hybrid of Blackboard/Canvas right now. I think next semester we'll fully be on Canvas, but it is quite annoying switching between the two of them (3 classes on Canvas, 3 on Blackboard)

looks interesting.

Thankfully unless I decide to do my doctorate I won't ever have to reference shit again, also back in my day we had to use books and shit since there was far less reference material online.

Kids these days don't get how good they got it.

I don't know if I'm pronouncing it right but scholarly is and an app that help you apply for scholarships.

Khan academy is great, teaches everything from 1st grade math to calculus with videosand test, what are you going for.

Hi Tifa!

Thank for resource this tool is actually used for citing sources and if you want to cite your papers in ama, apa, and Chicago style so you just need to fill given requirements and the tool gives you an accurate citation. Or if you want to cite in IEEE format so use IEEE citation generator (http://www.researchomatic.com/ieee-citation-generator/) it's a good tool for making citation in all formats and easy to use.

Hello. I am also a college student. And I want to share a couple of useful applications.

EXAM COUNTDOWN LITE - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=uk.co.beyondlearning.examcountdown&hl=en
With an easy-to-use interface, this free application is ideal for those who need to follow a tight exams schedule. Need to know when the next physics exam will be? Open Exam Countdown Lite and see how many minutes, days, weeks, or months it takes! You can customize the colors and icons used for each object, making it easy to keep track of what's what. Available for iOS and Android users.

Myscript Calculator - https://www.myscript.com
With MyScript Calculator you can solve math equations manually on your phone or tablet. Instead of using a traditional calculator, manually performing equations will help you learn and remember formulas more easily. From the simplest to the most complex equations, MyScript recognizes your handwriting and helps you learn math for a one-time fee of just $ 1.99.
This is a really good app. It helps when you need to quickly count.

I will recommend the Best Free Online English Grammar Checker (https://grammarchecker.net/)- Free online sentence checking and spelling tool. It is absolutely free and very easy to use.
It supports 28 different languages spelling and correction of sentences, contextual errors of English sentences.
Here you will get forever and always free of charge, with unlimited spelling and grammar checking.
The biggest advantage of this tool is that you do not need to install additional software. Additional features of Grammar Check support a wide range of modern browsers and devices.

If English is your second language, or you just do not know how to write an essay correctly, I want to advise a good site. (https://www.customessaymeister.com/) Where you can see examples of essays. It's free.
