Popular apps for students

The business and educational landscape is constantly changing and adapting to keep up with varying student demands and rapid technological advances. Just as we have become accustomed to shopping and socialising online, online learning became a popular norm after the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The digital era is at its peak and we all rely on our smartphones for many things, be it buying groceries, planning our schedule, catching up on shows or even studying. According to Statista, there are over 6 billion smartphone users in the world and a large proportion of them are students. 

Students are super savvy about the usage of this technology for their studies. In the past, students had to rely on  pen and paper for making notes, studying or preparing research papers, but today there are several apps for students that are extremely useful for students. If you are looking for some interesting apps that can make learning an easy and fun experience, then check out the list below: 


Evernote is a popular app that has received good reviews from the likes of Forbes, Inc. Magazine, Business.com and more. What makes Evernote so special is that it is straightforward to use and allows you to make notes that are easily accessible at a later date. It also makes it very easy for you to save material from a web clip, audio file, handwritten notes or even photos. 

This means you can easily log useful information on Evernote, like a photo of a whiteboard lesson or a hand-out. This will be saved automatically so you can keep all of your information in one place. Searching for notes can also be done with ease on this app which can also function as a digital binder in which you can save your study schedule and coursework.

With a busy schedule, managing finances can be hard but Splitwise makes it easier to track expenses and split bills and costs.
