It’s easy for apps to be more of a distraction from your studies than helpful, but there are few out there which aim to make life that bit easier for students. Here are our top 6…
50% off Spotify Premium, 10% off at Apple, 10% off at Just Eat, need we go on? UNiDAYS serves up a huge range of handy discounts all year-round. All you need to do is verify your student status through your uni portal and you’re good to go.
You’ll soon learn that the one thing worse than essay writing, is referencing said essay. However, EasyBib is an app that creates accurate references from the barcode of your book in over 7000 citation styles. Hallelujah.
Perfect for some last minute revision cramming, this app allows you to create custom flashcards to help memorise your notes. It cuts out the time-consuming of scribbling down long quotes from your study books and saves on paper. Win-win!
If you’re one of those who need to set seven alarms just to get out of bed in the morning then this is one for you. Boasting a reputation of being the world’s most annoying alarm, it’s bound to ensure that you’re awake in time for that 9am lecture. The app has four different ways to shut it up: the normal swipe, shaking the phone a number of times, solving a math problem and finally a photo match, where you have to take a replica photo of an image you took earlier. So take a picture of the bathroom the night before and hey presto, you’re up and ready for your morning shower by the time your alarm stops.
5. Drunk Mode
Are you a notorious drunk dialler/texter? Drunk Mode spares your blushes the following morning and allows you to block any numbers you don’t want to contact whilst inebriated for up to 12 hours. Spot on.
Something many probably don’t want to see, but definitely need to see, is how many units they’re drinking a week. This Drinkaware app lets you easily monitor your alcohol consumption and even shows you how much money you’ve saved. Your liver, and wallet, will thank you.
