Guest's picture

There are so many pros when it comes to being a student in the digital age, from having an abundance of apps and of course the internet to assist you with studying, rather than having to sieve through books at the library. The downside - it's so much easier to get distracted by using social media. Instead of letting your exams and deadlines creep up on you, get organisedby downloading some useful life-hacking apps. 

1. Trip It

If you're a savvy travelleror if you're trying to be then Trip Itwill be a revolutionary app for you. It generates your itinerary once you forward the confirmation emails from your travel bookings. The best part is, you can access your itinerary offline. So next time you arrive at your hotel or the train station you don't need to frantically try and find a Wi-Fi connection to find your bookings. Whilst travellingyour phone is even more precious so keep it safe with the ultimate case which you can get at a discount using your Skinnydip code for 2019.

2. Simple Mind Pro

This app allows for interactive mind mapping. Brainstorming your ideas for a project, future plans or your travels is a great way to rationaliseyour thoughts. Simple Mind Pro saves you from having to carry around a pen and paper since you can save your mind maps on the app. The app is easy to use and efficient since you can save it to your cloud or Dropbox so you can use it across your devices.

3. Maps Me

They say travellingopens the mind so it's no surprise that it's become a student tradition to travel during the summer or after graduation. Whether you're heading across the globe or doing a Euro trip it can be a daunting concept to find your way around a completely new place, especially without the use of the Internet. Even though your GPS will work without an Internet connection it means you can't load new places. Maps Me, on the other hand, is an offline map, and quite agood one at that. 

  • It can save your battery and is quick to load.
  • You can save money on roaming in case you get lost and need to find your way.
  • The maps don't take up too much space.

4. Clarity App

Clarity is the ultimate saving app. The difference between this app and other money-saving apps is it doesn't just track and notify you of your spending. It analyses your money flow to recommend ways to save money and budget. With your authorisationClarity can also cancel accounts that you've linked such as your Netflix or other subscriptions. The app will also recommend vouchers and coupons to assist you in saving for your goals, whatever they may be. One of the cool extra features is you can get your credit score, even though this isn't something most students are thinking about, it's good to know your score and how to maintain it for the future. 

5. Evernote

This classic app is great for organisingyour notes, ideas and useful information. It's visually stimulating which helps to see your ideas come to life. Evernote allows you to clip content from the Internet and save it a few different ways. You can bookmark, screenshot and even capture the whole page. You can also record and save voice notes, traditional notes, andlists. Although there are a few notetaking apps out there, this one is easy to use and has a simple design. If you have a stressful schedule or multiple deadlines on the horizon then it's easy to lose track of things or simply forget the details, Evernote will help you with this.

  • Save and clip web content that's relevant for your project.
  • If you have a great idea or concept relation to your work quickly store a voice note so you don't forget.
  • In case you forget where you saved a screenshot or note then you can easily search for it with a few words.

6. Forest App

It's so easy to get distracted from studying when your friends are messaging you and tagging you in posts, that's where the forest app comes in. The app allows you to set a time that you won't use or open any other apps on your phone. The longer the time the more your virtual tree will grow. The app will have a running timer and it'll notify you if you open another app, in which case your tree will die. The point is to help you to stay off your phone during those valuable study hours. 

Your student years will probably be some of your best so don't over stress, get your plans, study schedules under control with the help of some handy apps. Then you can maximiseyour time so you can make some great memories.
