There’s an app for nearly everything, including completely pointless stuff like stapler simulators or funny noise generators. While there’s plenty of fun to be had with your smartphone or tablet, your mobile device can also save your life in the classroom—even if that classroom is online.
School-related apps can be especially helpful for remote students seeking their high school diploma online since they provide fast, easy guidance right at your fingertips. Here are five helpful apps to try out:
Citing papers is a tedious process, especially when you bring different citation styles into the mix. EasyBib’s free app for Android and iOS handles bibliographies for you, all by simply scanning the book’s barcode or entering the title.
This app can calculate virtually anything, making it a valuable tool for math classes. Wolfram also offers access to course-specific apps to help you with your advanced physics or calculus courses this year.
Flashcards have been used as studying aids for decades, and Brainscape takes that study tool to a whole new level. Available on iTunes, the app lets you rate how well you know a topic and adjusts the timing for each card accordingly.
Looking up words is just part of Dictionary.com’s app—you’ll also get access to Word of the Day, audio pronunciation, word origins, vocab quizzes, a translator, and many other options.
