YONKERS, WESTCHESTER COUNTY, NY – July 20, 2022 – Apps play an important role in our daily lives these days. From alarms to online banking, each app serves a unique purpose and is easily accessible on our phones, tablets and PCs.
Due to the pandemic, people have also been using their phones for school work. As a result, many tech companies have developed apps to help students better navigate online courses and even get help with homework.
For example, many tutors, homework writing services, and older students offer homework help through phone apps so students can easily access it.
But there are more than homework apps on the web. The student app market is full of useful apps that simplify time-consuming tasks. Here are nine of the essential apps every college student should use.
- Google docs
Google Docs is one of Google’s built-in applications. You can find it on your Chrome homepage, in the upper right corner. Next to your Google avatar, you’ll see nine square-shaped dots. If you click on it, you can find all the tools that Google gives you for free. If you use your phone, you need to install it from Google Play.
This application is fantastic for taking notes or writing documents. It’s similar to Word but “hardwired” to the Google system. So wherever you are, as long as you have your Google password, you can access your documents from any device.
The app syncs and stores all your documents in a cloud, so your phone storage can be free. Plus, you can easily print, edit, and share your documents. As you work on your paper, the app automatically saves it at short intervals, so you never have to save it manually. Even if your device turns off, your paper will be safe in your cloud.
- Google Drive
We have already mentioned Google Docs. However, it wouldn’t be fair if we didn’t mention its older sibling, Google Drive. This app is basically what stores Google Docs. It is the cloud space that Google offers you to store everything you want within 15 GB.
Suppose you have a lot of homework to work on and share. You can work on it in conjunction with your writer, essay writing service, or tutor by giving them access to your file.
- my study life
My Study Life is popular among students because you can organize your college life easily through a free app.
You can set timers for your lessons and organize them in a calendar, exam dates, etc. It offers a lot of options for a free app.
College life can be expensive, especially when you’re not working full-time despite lots of expenses. So you need to do become a little more frugal.
Therefore, Unidays is the best app to save money. You just need to register with your email address, then you can find all the discounts available for you.
Grammar is a great tool for everyone. You can install it as a Chrome or Word extension. You can also install it on your phone. It proofreads any text you write and ensures that the grammar and tone are impeccable.

If you want to save as much money as possible, using discounts is not enough. Of course, buying something at a lower price saves money. However, if it’s something you didn’t really need in the first place, you’re wasting money even with discounts.
Thus, you might want to track your expenses and check that you are not overspending on unnecessary things. Instead, you can save for essentials like food, your course writing service, and utilities. Because getting help with school, eating, and warmth is more important than makeup, video games, and clothes.
