Best Student Apps for Essay Writing 2019:
There are many favourite student apps, like Google Drive and Evernote. So we thought we’d present the less obvious choices. With these apps under your belt, a college will be easy.
Ulysses is no doubt the best writing app for Apple products. Ulysses may seem trivial at first, like an extension of the built-in Notes app, but it’s much more than that. The magic writing environment which Ulysses creates, makes you absolutely addicted to writing in the app. We’ve tried the trial version while researching for apps for this blog, and we’re hooked.
The focus of the app is creating a distraction-free, fun to write atmosphere – so that you keep writing and don’t stop. The clean interface aims to boost your productivity and creativity. These immersive qualities make Ulysses the best app for students of writing.
The Hemingway app is perfect for rookie writers. The app primarily functions like a grammar checker – but that’s not the best part. Hemingway shows you all of your long sentences, and complicated words aiming to help you simplify your writing. In other words – get to the point.
Ernest Hemingway himself was famous for this style of writing. His manner was very economical and easy to read. He’d focus on short sentences and thus avoid over-complicating his texts, making them accessible to all audiences. With this app, you can become like the master himself.
Mate: Universal Tab Translator
Delving away from writing, here’s a language app which is more useful than it looks. Mate is a plugin which can translate anything into a hundred and three languages. It was created to help you avoid using Google Translate all the time.
If you’re a study abroad, every website will be in a foreign language. This tab translator can automatically translate websites and even speak out words with accents. With Mate, you’ll learn languages much much quicker. Also – everything you translate can be saved and synchronized across all your devices, allowing you to review your translations anytime.
A company founded by Linkedin – Lynda is like an online university. Except with this app, you can download whole courses and watch them without an internet connection. It is a feature which most online universities are lacking. However, if you have iTunes U, then you don’t need Lynda.
Topics include Excel, Lightroom, Photoshop, HTML, Java, WordPress, and more. While useful for students as a review app, this app is best suited for those who wish to start their professional careers and learn a few pro tricks quickly.
The bulk of your time in university, you’ll spend studying. And when it comes to exam week, you’ll have zero time to write annoying essays. That’s why there are apps like EssayPro which can take this strain off your chest.
Typically, essay writing services are known for notorious schemes and mediocre writing. This one is legit and here’s why: you can fully preview the FINAL version of your essay before sending your writer a payment. This way they guarantee professional quality on every piece, something other services cannot deliver.
YouTube Academic Channels:
My absolute favourite channel on YouTube is The School of Life. You can sit down to watch these informational channels for leisure. But as soon as you begin taking notes and tracking sources, they become invaluable lessons and sometimes teach much more than universities. Whether you use academic YouTube channels for quick reviews or to get ahead of the class – they’re an excellent academic helper.
Other channels include CrashCourse and The Infographics show. Considering these, there are many more such channels on YouTube talking about all kinds of topics, from Math to Music Theory, to Astrophysics. And if you can get a YouTube video downloader installed on your device, you’ll have access to literally the sum of human knowledge offline.
And there it is! Six fresh ideas for how to boost your academic performance. Keep in mind that although these apps are handy – you must do the bulk of the work. After all, you’re a student gifted with access to precious knowledge which can open any door in this world. Learn it, study it, use it to build a better future. We believe in you!
