Students do not always have enough time to complete all their university assignments. Very often, learners have to combine several part-time jobs with studies. Or maybe one simply likes to have fun at parties leaving everything for the last day.

 

In such situations, the solution may be to use online services that offer papers for a specific fee. We will leave a few links to the most credible ones: 

 

But still, it is more convenient to use the mobile version of such platforms.

 

One Big Thing

 

An application that helps you focus on one most important goal during the day. You mark one goal of the day and two or three secondary goals that are necessary to achieve, or those that you need to switch to later. 

 

The app is designed in the form of stickers. The associations allow you to remember important information. 

 

For example, you have a day to prepare a physics project. The main goal and all the necessary tasks for the project will be in front of your eyes.

 

Pomodoro Timer

 

Pomodoro Timer works according to the popular Pomodoro method: 25 minutes work, 5 minutes rest. Thanks to this technique, you can focus on your tasks without getting tired. 

 

If time periods are not suitable for you, you can reconfigure them by increasing or decreasing work and rest times. The timer will beep to warn you when it's time to take a break. 

 

The extension has a minimalist design. It does not take up much screen space or distract you from your work.

 

Wunderlist

 

Application for self-organization. All tasks are organized as a to-do list that can be shared with other users. For each assignment, you can set a due date and a reminder of what is necessary to do.

 

The app allows you to create a separate to-do list or a list of tasks to improve your performance. Wunderlist is not overloaded with unnecessary functions. It's simple: you set a task, execute it, tick the box and close it.

 

Headspace

Audio exercises in Headspace help to concentrate on what is important, get rid of unnecessary thoughts, and cope with stress and anxiety. 

 

There are even tips on what to do if you are bored while meditating. In addition to audio, the application uses other formats: video and animation. According to the developers, ten minutes per day are enough to feel the result.

 

Top 7 Most Expected Educational Apps

 

Now let's move on to applications that have already won the attention of hundreds of thousands or even millions of students from around the world.

 

Coursera

 

This is one of the most comprehensive unique applications which you can install on your gadget. 

 

The trick is that here you can find and watch a vast number of courses on a variety of subjects ranging from chemistry to art history. 

 

It offers courses from leading universities and institutes around the world. This is just a great chance to get useful information from academic sources. It's worth a try, definitely.

 

Memorado

After each passed level becomes more complicated, so any user can feel significant improvement in one's memory. 

 

The application helps to improve attentiveness and quick response. And all this comes in an easy and relaxed form. 

 

The disadvantage of the application is a large number of pop-up information. This problem can be solved by purchasing an extended version. 

 

FineScanner

 

Despite the huge amount of information on the Internet and various specialized programs, it is not always possible to find information from rare publications and narrowly specialized textbooks. 

 

In addition, the number of such books in university libraries is not enough for everyone. And if there are enough of them, it is hard enough to carry them with you all the time. 

 

With the help of this application, it will be possible to scan the necessary document or textbooks quickly. Later on, all the necessary information will be stored on the phone and will be available without request to libraries and the Internet.

 

Keynote

 

With this app, you can create presentations on your mobile device. Bright graphics, easy operation, the ability to create various animations and charts will help any student prepare the best presentation for university classes. 

 

In the beginning, the app may seem rather complicated, but after a little practice, you will be able to enjoy the process. 

 

Duolingo

 

The application checks the level of foreign language skills and creates a planned training in the game format. 

 

To finish the level, you need to pass all tasks without errors - and if the error keeps repeating, the system will give an additional lesson on this topic.

 

Exercises increase vocabulary, improve grammar, and pronunciation. In the paid version, offline mode is added, and advertising is removed.

 

Quizlet

 

Quizlet is a good flashcard application with user-friendly design and useful features. It offers many downloadable map sets for almost any theme. Of course, you can also create your own sets of flashcards.

 

Shortcomings? Quizlet blocks some subscription features, including the ability to use the application offline and at night.

 

 

TED

 

The annual TED conferences were originally created for Silicon Valley residents to exchange experiences and ideas. They have long gone beyond the tags of "technology, entertainment, design" (actually, TED). 

 

Today it is a global brand and quality mark. The speakers were ranging from Steve Jobs and Richard Dawkins to Pope Francis and Kermit from the Muppet Show. 

 

 

A free TED mobile application provides access to an extensive archive of lectures that are conveniently sorted into sections and tags ("funny," "amazing," "beautiful," "inspiring," and many others).
